The Challenge with Roethlisberger is that he is so large, the amount of power required to bring him down is more than normal, tempting penalties.
My biggest issue was that the Jets players weren't wrapping and squaring up. They were treating him like he was a QB who protects himself, ie Brady or Manning. There are 2 ways to deal with him: hit him hard even at the risk of a penalty or limit his mobility.
Honor is all well and good but when you're getting thoroughly dominated being a little underhanded against a bully is a nice strategy.
