PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Every Monday morning, 93.7 The Fan Steelers’ Insider,and Post-Gazette Beat Writer, Ed Bouchette joins the Fan Morning Show at 8 a.m.

Ed says that the Steelers are planning on playing Ben Roethlisberger if he is healthy to a certain extent. He says the team doesn’t want to have him sit out two (possibly) three weeks and become rusty.

The main difference between Antonio Brown’s rookie, and sophomore season, according to Ed,  is experience. He thinks that Antonio is learning a more developed system than he had at Central Michigan and as he develops, he has the potential for stardom.

Ed didn’t notice any problems with Trai Essex at center, so that must be a good thing, saying, “Trai can play every position on that offensive line.” Fellow offensive lineman, Marcus Gilbert was being punished for a lack of preparation, and Ed doesn’t think it was a big deal. He says that the message was received, and the team will move on.

The Ravens have the potential to lose their game on the road to the Bengals on Sunday, which would give the Steelers the top seed in the AFC North if they beat the Browns.

We also get Ed’s thoughts on LaMarr Woodley and what is exactly going on with his hamstring.
