FOXBORO, MA (93.7 the Fan) – Steelers players reacted to the 33-3 opening night loss to the Patriots.

Listen to your team news NOW.

JuJu Smith-Schuster

“This whole team (Patriots) played a great game, you have to give it up to them.  They deserved it.  They wanted more than us.”

Mark Barron

“Most definitely embarrassing, you never want to lose, but we lost by a significant amount of points.  Do you want to feel like this again?  I would like to believe that no one in here would like to feel like that again.”

Ben Roethlisberger

“I wasn’t good enough.  Wasn’t given guys balls where they could catch them, balls in front, behind.  I wasn’t good enough.”

Cam Heyward

“You tip your hat to them, they executed a lot better.  We got our butts whooped today.”

David DeCastro

“You saw it.  We got beat by 30 points.  A bunch of three and outs, short drives, not letting our defense rest, a combination of things.  It’s really frustrating.”

James Conner

“We understand how the outside world is and what people are going to think and say, but we’ll just keep playing.”

Ramon Foster

“We will proceed to move on, we can’t dwell on this, this is one team.  Everybody wants to make a big hoopla about it, but hell, we have 15 more games.”

Vance McDonald

“I lot of people are going to say play calling, at the end of the day we could have executed in any plays that were called.  Coach Tomlin says it best ‘you have to make routine plays, routine’.   When we have drops, that’s on us.”
