The Pittsburgh Steelers began their season without the services of star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger who is serving a four-game suspension because of actions off the field. So we asked Pittsburghers how they thought the Steelers would do without him. Here’s what you said.

“I think they will go 2-2. We play Tennessee and are definitely not going to win. They have a better offense. Defense is about even.”

“They are definitely not going to do as good as they could do if Ben Roethlisberger were playing. The quarterback they have is not better than him. The Steelers are nothing without him. If Tomlin buckles down on Dixon, they might be able to do something.”

“I think they’ll split the next games. They can win one more but I don’t think they’ll beat the Titans or the Ravens.”

“They won the last game. I think they have a chance to win one more but considering that the other teams have better quarterbacks than the Steelers, it doesn’t give them a good chance.”
Angela Harris

“I think they’ll do alright but don’t know if they’ll do good. I don’t think Dixon is ready to step into the position as quarterback.”
Chantel Gudger

“I think they’ll do fine considering their coach and what he’s going through in his personal life. They have to stick together and hold it down and not let Rothlisber­ger’s suspension defeat them. They still have fans that love them.”
