Smart move is to rest Roethlisberger against Browns






They can't be serious, can they?

It makes much more sense to hold out Roethlisberger this week. Add to it the bye week and he'll have two full weeks of recovery.

Landry Jones is capable of leading this team.

It's the Browns. It's at Heinz Field.

Rest Roethlisberger. It's the smart move.
