ESPN analyst expects Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger to be benched this season

Think it or not, there was a time when ESPN NFL expert Mike Tannenbaum supervised of an NFL franchise. In reality, more than one group has actually relied on Tannenbaum in an executive function. But now, Tannenbaum, the man who decided Mark Sanchez was worth a first-round pick, is mostly responsible for some of the wildest anti-Pittsburgh Steelers on ESPN.

His latest hot take is actually recycled from last season. Tannenbaum tried hard to convince everyone Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was done last season and even though he was wrong, he’s doubling down on it this season, with even more.

According to Tannenbaum, Roethlisberger is going to be bad and be benched by midseason. Yep. you read that right. Tannebaum is predicting Roethlisberger will be benched for poor play in 2021. Let’s just file that one away so we can talk about it again in say, December.
