Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers will make their 2017 regular season home debut against the Minnesota Vikings at Heinz Field this week. It’s a venue that has in the past acted as a tremendous home-field advantage for Pittsburgh. But it in no way compares to the old Three Rivers Stadium — a venue that hosted these Steelers for over three decades.

In talking about his hometown fans and a sudden perceived lack of fear from opposing teams, Big Ben had some rather interesting comments.

Coyotes' Tocchet: Crosby 'made me a better coach'

  Coyotes' Tocchet: Crosby 'made me a better coach' If anyone ever doubted Sidney Crosby's work ethic or passion for the game of hockey, have a conversation Arizona Coyotes head coach Rick Tocchet.In a Q&A with Sports Illustrated, Tocchet revealed that he and Crosby would have late night phone conversations to simply talk hockey.

They also have one of the league’s uniquely talented quarterbacks in Ben Roethlisberger . Yet Pittsburgh has won eight in a row, including Sunday’s thumping of the Dolphins, despite some remarkably inconsistent play from Roethlisberger .

Ben Roethlisberger didn’t mean it, guys. I’m looking forward to this season, and I’m going to give it everything I have and afterwards we’ll sit down and do some (thinking) again.” But, in an interview this week with this Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, he said he didn’t mean to cause alarm.

“I expect it and hope it’ll be sold out, loud, crazy,” Roethlisberger said, via ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. “You know, we need to bring back that home field, Heinz Field mystique, if you will. It was always that way when I first got here, the first few years when I was here and not saying we’ve lost it, but teams need to fear coming into Heinz Field. One, because of the fans and the craziness and two, because of our play.”

Technically, Big Ben doesn’t have to worry about the game selling out. That’s been the case for every home game in Pittsburgh since the 1972 season. Though, there has definitely been empty seats in the past.

For the Steelers’ part, they finished last season with a 6-2 record at home. That’s not too shabby, at all.

Pittsburgh hosts an upstart Minnesota Vikings team on Sunday. It will most definitely be interesting to see just how much of a home-field advantage those waiving the Terrible Towels will have in what promises to be a very good game.

Peter Chiarelli's cap strategy for Edmonton Oilers isn't reckless, it's the norm for top NHL teams .
It’s a fallacy to suggest Oilers’ Stanley Cup hopes will take a massive downgrade when McDavid & Draisaitl’s contracts kick in Some critics of Peter Chiarelli’s spending would have you believe it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a team with a few mega-dollar player contracts to […]Some critics of Peter Chiarelli’s spending would have you believe it’s easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a team with a few mega-dollar player contracts to win the Stanley Cup.
