Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is coming off what has to be described as the most frustrating season of his Hall of Fame worthy career.

Pittsburgh finished the 2018 campaign with an 9-6-1 record, missing out on the playoffs altogether after losing four of its final six games. The season was defined by both Le’Veon Bell’s holdout and drama that unfolded behind the scenes between Big Ben and star receiver Antonio Brown.

In talking about Bell’s holdout, Roethlisberger noted that the Steelers were hurt more by the distraction that this caused than Bell’s absence on the field. Equally noteworthy, he was impressed by how James Conner performed in Bell’s stead.
