Ben Roethlisberger has looked every bit his age through the early part of the NFL season, and there has been increasing talk that the Pittsburgh Steelers should make a quarterback change. Mike Tomlin says that is not going to happen.

With the Steelers now having lost three straight, Tomlin was asked on Tuesday if he feels Roethlisberger still gives the team its best chance to win. He threw his full support behind the veteran.

Tomlin then spoke about how he appreciates and respects the passion of Steelers fans.

Roethlisberger has had trouble staying healthy in recent years, and he has already dealt with multiple injuries this season. Tomlin said Tuesday that Big Ben has a hip injury. The 39-year-old suffered a pectoral muscle injury two weeks ago, and that may be impacting his ability to throw.

The Steelers have not scored more than 17 points in a game since their 23-16 win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 1. Roethlisberger has a passer rating of 78.9 with just four touchdowns and four interceptions in four games. The Steelers are going to continue to have trouble winning games with that type of offensive inefficiency.

Roethlisberger clearly has Tomlin’s support, but the same may not be true throughout the entire Steelers organization.
