Steelers Have More Questions Than Answers Behind Roethlisberger

The Pittsburgh Steelers have spent most of Ben Roethlisberger’s career with a pretty solid idea of what they had at the quarterback position behind him. Early in his career, of course, they had Tommy Maddox, who was the starter for the first two games of Roethlisberger’s rookie year, and then…
