Roethlisberger, who is expected to miss 4-6 weeks will be replaced by backup Michael Vick during that time.
The question now for the Steelers is: Can they survive that length of a period without their star QB? On Mad Dog Sports Radio, Adam Schein explained why he’s not so sure they can.
“Michael Vick didn’t even work hard last year with the Jets, now he’s going to be under center for the Pittsburgh Steelers,” said Schein. “I don’t see a guarantee win for the Pittsburgh Steelers. If Mike Vick is your quarterback and Ben Roethlisberger is injured there’s not a guaranteed win on that schedule.”
