Ben Roethlisberger could be retiring on January 16th and the Chiefs fans are making sure he retires on the said date. The fanbase might be joking with the “Ben Roethlisberger’s Retirement Party” with hilarious meme but Chiefs head coach Andy Reid isn’t joking around. Here is what he had to say during a press conference.
“We focused on Pittsburgh and that’s kind of the direction we headed yesterday, and then we watched the game,” Reid said during his press conference on Monday, January 10. “We were down to the last two minutes going, ‘we might be playing the Raiders,’ but we did most of our focus on Pittsburgh. The chances of it being a tie we felt was slim to none, but we got down there and it was something. It was quite a game.”
“I think they’re playing well together,” Reid said of Pittsburgh. “I think they’re doing a nice job with that. Ben’s playing well. The runner’s running well. The offensive line’s doing a nice job, and Pittsburgh’s always good on that defensive side. They fly around. They’ve got some all-star players on that side of the ball that do really well.
“Their wide receivers are very good too on the offensive side. They’re a good football team. They’re well coached and the organization with the Rooney family is strong. It’s been strong for so many years.”
Among the many issues the Steelers present is star pass-rusher T.J. Watt, who tied Hall of Famer Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record in Week 18, recording 22.5 total sacks this season. These two teams met during the regular season, with the Chiefs winning 36-10.
