It’s no secret the Pittsburgh Steelers are going all in to get their seventh Super Bowl with Ben Reothlisbeger at the helm over the next couple seasons. However, there are several questions that the Steelers are going to need to answer before people jump on their bandwagon.

One person hesitant to say they can win it all is former Steelers safety, Ryan Clark. When asked a question about if Roethlisberger could win another Super Bowl, his answer didn’t instill a bunch of confidence.

Clark gave a long winded answer in which he pointed out several of the bright spots for the Steelers last year. He cited how well some of the team’s young playmakers on offense played last season including Diontae Johnson and James Washington.

Clark then went onto say he had a conversation with Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin in which Tomlin stated he feels the same about the current Steelers defense as he did about the defense Clark was a part of. That just shows how good their defense is right now, especially that their coach is comparing them to a defense that helped them win a Super Bowl in the past.

When asked to confirm his answer whether the Steelers will win another Super Bowl with Roethlisberger, Clark stated “I don’t want to say no, its a maybe. Its a I think they’re going to be really good, I think they’re going to be a playoff team, but other teams are really good”.

Well, that’s not necessarily what Steelers fans want to hear. While making the playoffs is a good step in the right direction after two seasons in which they finished as the 7th seed, the ultimate goal is still a Lombardi Trophy.

Even though we all want the Steelers to win a Super Bowl and we believe they can, Clark is correct stating that beating teams such as the Baltimore Ravens with Lamar Jackson and the Kansas City Chiefs with Patrick Mahomes, is not going to be an easy task.

Regardless of who they have to face, there is no doubt the Steelers have a lot of the pieces necessary to compete. An elite defense, playmakers on offense, and hopefully a healthy star quarterback. Hence why Clark added in his comments “this team has everything it needs to win”.

Let us know below what you think about Ryan Clark’s thoughts on whether Ben Roethlisberger can lead the Steelers to another Super Bowl!
