He watched EJ Manuel struggle through Sunday’s game in his team’s victory over Buffalo Sunday, but Ben Roethlisberger believes wholeheartedly that EJ Manuel will be a successful quarterback in the NFL.
After the game he was asked about the pressure that the Steelers defense dialed up against Manuel and the Bills offense. Truthfully there wasn’t a lot of blitzing, but Roethlisberger despite Manuel’s struggles sees a quality signal caller.
“Any time that they can get pressure on quarterbacks, especially young ones, it helps you for the rest of the day,” said Roethlisberger. ”Give them and Coach LeBeau a lot of credit for getting after him. E.J. is a good quarterback. He is going to be good.”
Dick LeBeau improved to 18-2 against rookie quarterbacks after the Steelers win Sunday.
