Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph were already texting buddies.
Now, they’re actually communicating face-to-face, and the Steelers’ elder quarterback said he was happy to help the guy who could eventually replace him.
Game Mens Adam Humphries Jersey Via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Roethlisberger said he’s always been willing to help the young guys (though that’s not really what it sounded like after the draft).
He’s got a big arm, Roethlisberger said. He overthrew [Antonio Brown] even though AB’s not going to admit it. He seems to understand the offense, seems to not have any issues in the huddle, so I thought he did really well.
Perhaps a slimmer Fournette will be a little quicker, and a little better, in his second season.
That if he were to pitch full time he could still pinch hit on a lot of his days off, and that if he were a great hitter he’d add about one win per year with those at-bats; if he were a good hitter he’d add about half a win; and if he were an average hitter he’d add about two-tenths of a win.
That if he quit hitting, he’d pitch on a five-day schedule instead of a six-day schedule. If he is really this Gabe Jackson Womens Jersey good a pitcher and he’s pitching every fifth day instead of every sixth, and he’s getting our 5 percent bump for not DHing anymore, he’s about a 4-win player, plus whatever he adds with his pinch-hitting.
As you see, it all depends on your assumptions. Personally, I’d probably assume he’s this good a pitcher (Nola, Arrieta), maybe a little better; and he’s the halfway-regressed batter (the Hosmer, Smoak), maybe a tiny bit worse. Checking the grid, that means he should stay exactly how he is. Phew!
