Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger says arm feels 'pretty good'

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said his arm "feels pretty good" following his preseason debut.

What It Means:

Roethlisberger, who didn't dress for the Steelers' first two preseason games, completed 8-of-10 passes for 137 yards and a pair of touchdowns on Saturday night against the Detroit Lions. "My arm feels pretty good compared to last year," Roethlisberger said. "I felt good, but I didn't know how it should feel. It feels pretty good right now." Roethlisberger's play fell off over the final six games of the regular season last year, in which he averaged a woeful 5.6 yards per attempt with 1.8 touchdowns and 1.0 interceptions per game. The 39-year-old veteran, by all accounts, is in much better shape heading into the 2021 campaign, which is an encouraging sign for the Steelers' talented group of wideouts.

Roethlisberger ranked 18th in Passing Net Expected Points per drop back (0.14) out of the 32 quarterbacks with at least 300 drop backs in 2020. numberFire's models project him for 4,304.8 yards with 32.35 touchdowns and 17.2 interceptions this season, and Roethlisberger is the QB22 in our season-long rankings.
