At 2-5, the Steelers are clearly a different team than the perennial contender fans have become used to seeing in Pittsburgh. Ben Roethlisberger has aged alongside the rest of the old guard, and no matter how badly he wants to prove he's still an elite quarterback, the 31-year-old has lost a couple steps.
