A day after a 30-point season-opening loss to the Patriots, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger reassured his teammates during their Monday run.
"I said [on Monday], 'Hey guys, look up,'" Roethlisberger said Wednesday. "'The sun's still shining. The sky's still blue. The best thing is we still get to play on Sunday.' It's Week 1."
Roethlisberger remained upbeat about the team's outlook Wednesday morning, reiterating that any problems were small fixes, while also doubling down on his postgame assertion that he needed to improve.
"It's not like all of a sudden we have to go back to the drawing board," Roethlisberger said. " ... It's just, we all need to, starting with myself, play better. It's nothing drastic on anybody's plate. It's just little things here and little things there."
Instead of dissecting flaws of others in the Steelers' passing game, Roethlisberger focused on himself.
