Morning Jolt: Steelers question Big Ben's toughness?
The Steelers lost more than just its third consecutive game in a season that's rapidly headed toward mediocrity. Clearly, it has a schism in the locker room that badly needs to be repaired before it sabotages any chance the Steelers have in the final five games of making the playoffs. Shame on wide receiver Hines Ward for going on national television before the game and saying the team was split almost "50-50" about whether quarterback Ben Roethlisberger should or should not have played. "I've been out there dinged up. The following week, got right back out there," Ward told NBC. (Baltimore Sun) Comment
