Good news, Steelers fans: Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is back.

Bad news, Steelers fans: Roethlisberger promptly threw his second interception of the day.

Roethlisberger returned after suffering a left knee injury in the first half. But Isa Abdul-Quddus picked Ben off as the Steelers were beginning to put something together.

The Dolphins lead 16-8, and they’re driving.

    Thank Jehova for Red Zone.

    Until the clock shows 0:00, I have no confidence in Miami.

    Tomlin will be tripping his own players soon at this rate.

    Oh he took time out of assaulting women to play some football, good for him.

    Hey Ben still worried how hard the practices are……

    Another let down to an inferior team. Tomlin is awful in these games. They will get steam rolled next week.

    Ah yes, throw an INT, limp off and blame it on an injury. Seen this for years from him. Come back if there’s a chance to get credit for a win, but if all looks lost, let the backup take the blame.

    Squealers are a joke. Roth was dumb to come back. No threat in the postseason. Unless bad flatulence by Mike Tomlin counts

    Got to love the complete break down in logic to this:
    “Another let down to an inferior team. Tomlin is awful in these games. They will get steam rolled next week.”

    The Steelers have a long history of poor play against inferior teams (started with Cowher). They have already beaten two playoff teams. But “they will get steam rolled next week”. Sure they will be underdogs against the NE in NE and may certainly lose. But the Steelers never “get steam rolled” by top tier teams.

    So much for returning to be the hero.

    55 points by the Pats qualify as steamrolled, IMO

    Another fail by Tomlin. He has never had this team ready to go on a consistent basis.
