Heyward Responds to Roethlisberger’s Criticism
Defensive lineman Cameron Heyward has responded to the recent criticism voiced by Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger openly questioned the coaching and leadership within the team, as well as which players on the roster would set the right tone.
Heyward, a six-time Pro Bowler, addressed Roethlisberger’s comments during an appearance on the NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football.” He expressed his disagreement with Roethlisberger’s viewpoint, stating that the Steelers way is about grinding it out regardless of the situation. Heyward emphasized the importance of winning games, having a strong defense, and scoring points as the foundation of the team’s tradition.
Challenges Faced by the Steelers in the 2023 Season
The 2023 season has been a tumultuous one for the Pittsburgh Steelers. The team experienced offensive struggles for a significant portion of the season, leading to a rare in-season coaching change. Head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed the firing of offensive coordinator last month.
In addition to the coaching change, the Steelers have also had to cope with injuries to key players, including quarterback Kenny Pickett and star pass rusher . These setbacks have added to the team’s challenges as they prepare to face the Indianapolis Colts this Saturday.
