Ben Roethlisberger wonders if he 'doesn't have it anymore'

Week 5 Running Back Rankings

It's unknown how the cleats will help Fournette against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it's safe to say he's already drawn fashion attention by just walking on the field.

His awful game-play wasn't what had people talking after the game though, it was his attitude and how he basically admitted that he sucks now and just might be washed up. Posluszny hit Roethlisberger in 1.9 seconds, impacting a throw that was behind McDonald and intercepted on a diving play by Ramsey, similar to the interception he made against Baltimore quarterback Joe Flacco in London.

And we've seen Roethlisberger go through bad stretches, most notably to open the 2006 season.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

"I've been doing this a long time".

The Steelers got the ball to start the second half, and for the third time had to settle for a Boswell field goal, putting them back on top, 9-7, despite driving all the way to the Jaguars two-yard line.

"Maybe I don't have it anymore", he said offhandedly in response to one reporter's question. Just above him in the rankings are Mike Glennon and Blake Bortles, quarterbacks who beat the Steelers despite throwing for 101 and 95 yards, respectively. Series tied, 11-11. The Steelers have won the past three meetings and six of the 10 games in Pittsburgh, but the Jaguars have won three in a row at Heinz Field, including the only playoff game between the two teams.

Newton was mostly great, too, throwing with confidence to not only Devin Funchess and Kelvin Benjamin but TE Ed Dickson, whose 175 yards was the most by an National Football League tight end since _. Fournette expanded his role in the offense, catching four passes for 59 yards and a touchdown. Their five interceptions on the day, two sacks and two touchdowns on defense prove that this defense group is capable of making up for what it lacks in offense.

The Jacksonville Jaguars spent the first month of the season looking equal parts awesome and bad, taking one step toward respectability immediately followed by a baffling step back. While everyone is entitled to their own opinions, I don't think it's too much to ask our NFL players to respect the Flag and our National Anthem. Three plays later, Rivers found running back Melvin Gordon in the end zone for the 10-yard touchdown.

However, the Steelers have yet to play a complete game this season and both losses have been ugly.

Even if you take away the 90-yard touchdown to seal the game just before the two-minute warning, Fournette stood out once again today. Then came Smith's Pick Six. "We just need to focus on our responsibilities and make sure we handle it". Fournette has lived up to his preseason hype and has easily been Jacksonville's most effective offensive weapon, whether it's running the ball or taking short passes and turning them into big gains.
