Ben Roethlisberger: NFL needs to 'get rid of' Thursday night games

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (7) hands off to running back Le'Veon Bell (26) during the first half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals in Pittsburgh, Sunday, Oct. 22, 2017.

"Yeah, it's miserable. It's awful".

"It's bad. They need to get rid of this game, I think. It's one of those things, 'Hey guys, you know you did this wrong, this wrong, this wrong, this wrong, you won, good job".

The Seattle Seahawks came out in force to condemn Thursday night games after Richard Sherman was lost for the season in Week 10. You've got to let your body recover a little bit. "Even a week, you're still not fully recovered by Sunday to Sunday, you're still dealing with bumps and bruises and things just continue to build up throughout the season".

Ironically one weapon the Steelers might have to fight not just a short week, but what a defense can bring, is the no-huddle.

With more players jumping onto the wagon of disapproval, the National Football League could begin to take a closer look at the situation and may consider some alterations to schedules to meet these rising concerns. It's a tough thing to do. As understandable as his points are, the league probably isn't going to just get rid of Thursday night games any time soon.

This is more than likely going to be Roethlisberger's last hurrah in a Hall of Fame career and at times they have required him to pull some magic out of the hat - his completion to Brown under pressure against the Colts with 45 seconds remaining was right out of the top drawer to help set up Boswell's game-winner.

Patriots fans have to feel good (and Steelers fans, quite bad) about Roethlisberger going out of his way to rant about Thursday night games on Monday.

Indeed. And he didn't stop there, even speaking for the Steelers' upcoming opponent this Thursday.

The Steelers enter this Week 11 matchup happily sporting a 7-2 record that gives them the lead in the AFC North. Pittsburgh has been practically uncontested in the division this year, with the 4-5 Baltimore Ravens being their biggest threat. More and more players are voicing their displeasure.

Game day. This is what you live for.
