Ben Roethlisberger sees Antonio Brown as a number one guy


Ben Roethlisberger told Steelers.com that he considers wide receiver Antonio Brown a number one guy.

“The sky is the limit. He can be as good as he wants to be. I have seen growth in him and improvements and that is what we want to see. He has come along as a number one guy.” Roethisberger told Steelers.com

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been looking at Antonio Brown being that No. 1 guy ever since Mike Wallace decided to leave town and take his talents to South Beach. With Brown now playing the X receiver, he will run a higher volume of vertical routes while challenging at the short and intermediate levels.

Roethlisberger and Brown could be a familiar combination as the season begins and continues on. It may not be as dangerous as Mike Wallace and Roethlisberger, but for right now it’s a start and could be something that eventually grows into something that was similar.

What do you think Pittsburgh Steelers fans? Do you believe Antonio Brown is a solid replacement for Mike Wallace?

    Antonio Brown was always better than mike Wallace in my opinion, clearly Antonio can catch better than mike can, Antonio isn’t afraid to go up and catch the ball. Brown is a complete reciever and I think him and Big Ben will be more dangerous than when mike was the guy. You also can’t forget Emmanuel Sanders but Antonio deserves to be the guy I’m happy for him and can’t wait to see him play
