After a slow start, the Pittsburgh Steelers are getting hot with three straight victories to close out the first half of the 2012 season.
Last week’s victory over the New York Giants not only moved the Steelers to 5-3 for the year, it also established them as a legitimate contender at the midway point of the season.
Clearly, the Most Valuable Player has been Ben Roethlisberger, who is having one of the best seasons of his career.
He has taken to Todd Haley’s offense and has been one of the best quarterbacks in the league this season.
Roethlisberger continues to extend plays, but has been able to get the ball out quickly and has easily been the best third down quarterback in the league.
But besides team MVP, there are a number of other players who deserve a lot of credit for the Steelers’ success this year. Here is a look at some of the other Steelers’ midseason award winners.
