Climb that iceberg

Last spring, I noted that Ben Roethlisberger described himself as "starting to hit the iceberg", meaning that his skills as a quarterback were just starting to develop. This afternoon, as the Pittsburgh Steelers' quarterback, Roethlisberger is dumping that iceberg right on top of the Philadelphia Eagles. At the end of the first half: Pittsburgh 21, Philadelphia 3. Roethlisberger 7/11, 102 yards, 2 TDs. I wonder if Justin Busch at Semantic Compositions has any second thoughts about his evaluation of San Diego's draft choice.
