Roethlisberger: I want more Super Bowl rings than Bradshaw

Pittsburgh Steelers v New York Giants Getty Images

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has two Super Bowl rings. Which puts him three short of his goal.

At his appearance in London to promote the American version of football, Roethlisberger said his goal is to have the most Super Bowl rings of any starting quarterback in Steelers history. Which would also mean he’d have the most Super Bowl rings of any starting quarterback in NFL history, as Steelers Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw and 49ers Hall of Famer Joe Montana share the current record with four.

“I want to pass Terry Bradshaw by getting more Super Bowl wins. That’s our expectations in Pittsburgh,” Roethlisberger said, via Steelers PR man Burt Lauten.

Roethlisberger also made clear that he wants to win all of those Super Bowls in Pittsburgh.

“There is no other franchise I would rather play for than the Pittsburgh Steelers,” he said.

Realistically, the odds are against the 31-year-old Roethlisberger winning three more Super Bowls, in Pittsburgh or anywhere else. For that matter, the odds would be against any NFL player winning three more Super Bowls. But Roethlisberger, who has never been close to Bradshaw, would love to eclipse the Hall of Fame quarterback who came before him in Pittsburgh.

    You’ll never be Terry Bradshaw no matter how hard you try, Ben.

    You will, however, always be a rapist.

  2. rc33 says: Jul 2, 2013 12:52 PM

    He’s well ahead in sexual assault allegations.
    Isn’t that enough?

  3. mswravens says: Jul 2, 2013 12:54 PM

    Fat chance this fat QB will reach this goal…he’s unlikely to win anymore rings in P-burgh at all!!! This is Flacco’s division now & he won’t ruin his career doing stupid things on motorcycles & in bars w/underage women!!!

    Report: Every QB in the league wants more Super Bowl rings than Bradshaw.

  11. wilsonwillbreaku says: Jul 2, 2013 12:59 PM

    You should be in the cell next to Hernandez. “Alleged” rapist. No more rings for you, karma will not allow it.

  12. gdeli says: Jul 2, 2013 1:01 PM

    You’ve got enough. And I hope you never top bradshaw, he’s a real legend. You’re just good. It is the Viking’s turn for at least 1. God lord when is it their turn!

  13. stevepany says: Jul 2, 2013 1:03 PM

    It could happen as long as Bill Leavy is a ref

  14. modellforprez says: Jul 2, 2013 1:04 PM

    Yeah that window may have closed. his best chances were a 15-1 rookie season but i heard some team cheated their way to that one. and A.R and The cheese freaks bested them in S.B 45. you might wanna give up chasing Bradshaw Ben he never lost a Super Bowl

  15. jonbeck316 says: Jul 2, 2013 1:04 PM

    He is way ahead in rapes. Bradshaw never even raped one woman- he tried but she had steel curtains

  16. jwcarlson says: Jul 2, 2013 1:05 PM

    Not going to happen in the salary cap era.

    Good comparison tho crap qbs who got dragged to SB wins by their D/run game

  26. broncosnative says: Jul 2, 2013 1:19 PM

    Sorry Big Ben, but that window of opportunity has closed for you as long as you’re playing in Pittsburg. Maybe on another team

  27. gloryfromheaven says: Jul 2, 2013 1:23 PM

    Roethlisberger can’t anymore, not without that #1 ranked defense falling apart

  28. phishan says: Jul 2, 2013 1:24 PM

    Sorry Ben, your time has come and gone. The divisions future belongs to the Bengals now. Harrison can’t wait to say hello.

  29. bobzilla1001 says: Jul 2, 2013 1:25 PM

    If Roethlisberger even hopes to sniff another Super Bowl, he better first take a pay cut, then hope the Steelers’ defense can continue to play at a high level and support his pathetic 22nd-ranked scoring offense.
    I think this is what frustrates me the most, the fact that Roethlisberger himself is so unaware of, or unfazed by, his small contributions towards Super Bowl wins (two victories, one TD pass, the lowest passer rating in SB history, 0 MVP awards).

  30. prmpft says: Jul 2, 2013 1:26 PM

    EBAY – they’re waiting for you big ben…

  31. commonsensedude says: Jul 2, 2013 1:28 PM

    If your accusers ever prove their allegations against you or you screw up again, maybe you can just pretend that the handcuffs are a pair of really big rings.

  32. relggigeht says: Jul 2, 2013 1:28 PM

    “You’ve got enough. And I hope you never top bradshaw, he’s a real legend. You’re just good. It is the Viking’s turn for at least 1. God lord when is it their turn!”

    When they stop sucking?

  33. jimair1 says: Jul 2, 2013 1:29 PM

    He can DO this! Ebay has old rings for sale all of the time from past players being down on their luck. Get out your credit card Ben because that is the only way it will happen.

  34. ronnyhanson says: Jul 2, 2013 1:30 PM

    Maybe the defense can earn him another three superbowls. The guy has thrown 3 Tds to 5 Ints in his superbowls. He is a negative play machine and he can’t play 3 clean games in a row.

  35. Clifford Cartwright says: Jul 2, 2013 1:31 PM

    The stupid rape comments are just getting old.

  36. rockinrodie says: Jul 2, 2013 1:36 PM

    Ben will maybe get 1 more, but probably not 2. It’s a new team now with different components. Bill Cowher’s talent is drying up each year, and Tomlin and Colbert, for the most part, haven’t replaced it. They do, however, have the youngest O-line with the most upside.

  37. citizenstrange says: Jul 2, 2013 1:37 PM

    I hate to say this but I don’t think there will be any more Super Bowl rings for Roethlisberger.

    The Steelers had the number one defense in the entire NFL last year and Roethlisberger couldn’t even get them in the playoffs.

    Roethlisberger peaked in the Denver playoff game in his 2nd year right before posting a 22 quarterback rating in the Super Bowl against the Seahawks and it’s been downhill ever since.

    Roethlisberger used to be able to squeak out four or five 13-9 wins each season but with last year’s slew of game ending pick sixes (actually pick sevens) and pick threes he can’t even get that low hanging fruit anymore.

    Roethlisberger has gone two years in a row now without a playoff win. This will probably be the third and I don’t know when the Steelers will win another playoff game but for sure no more Super Bowl wins with Roethlisberger with his 6 points of offense and his 10 points of negative offense running the show.

    And as I’ve posted before the Steelers are going to fall down an elevator shaft when LeBeau retires.

    Ben couldn’t hold Bradshaw’s jock.

  40. drich1960 says: Jul 2, 2013 1:41 PM

    Well I guess he could try to get the back up job for the VIKINGS cuz we’re winning the next 3 out of 5

  41. kcmaher says: Jul 2, 2013 1:44 PM

    Sounds like he’s trying to rape Terry Bradshaw’s record.

  42. realdealsteel says: Jul 2, 2013 1:47 PM

    Idiot, morons outside the organization don’t see what us insiders do. And that is it is entirely possible for him to get three more rings because quietly, the defense is getting younger, (and the defense is already the # 1 defense in the league) the offense has been rebuilt with a new RB, O-line and a WR that the outside world doesn’t know how good he is yet (Wheaton).

    Keep talking idiots. And when the Steelers are 6-1 after 7 games and cruising to the division title, you’ll have a better understanding.

    Six rings. Nobody can say they have more. And we have more for a reason.

    Somehow I think Flacco is going to have a say in it. The division belongs to the ravens right now. And as much as BENGAKS fans talk ( all three of them) they still haven’t walked the walk.

  45. patbetw says: Jul 2, 2013 2:00 PM

    6 rings in 80 years not really that great when you think about it.1 every 13+ years. Not even the best in the division. Ravens averageing 1 every 8.5 years. So yes they have more for a reason, they’ve been around for ever.

    Nobody wants to play for the Bengals. That is why they have zero rings and never will get one.

  56. bensstinkyfingers says: Jul 2, 2013 2:16 PM

    Looks like Bens hits to the head from being so immobile, have finally taken their toll. No chance Ben wins 3 let alone one more ring before his career is done (max 4 years). The steelers had a good run, but will be dwelling in the basement of the AFC North for the next decade.

  57. antibenapalooza says: Jul 2, 2013 2:16 PM

    If Flacco had a say in anything, he wouldn’t have lost half his roster this offseason.

    The only thing he’ll have a say in is what toppings to put on his pizza on Sundays in January.

  63. lombardiwinners2013 says: Jul 2, 2013 2:32 PM

    The Ravens and Bengals have better teams right now. The Steelers have somewhat lost their identity on offense. Not saying the Steelers won’t be any good, but they will have a tough time getting past BAL and CIN let alone DEN, NE, and HOU. Not gonna happen any time soon, Ben.

  64. deadeye says: Jul 2, 2013 2:34 PM

    Well Ben, if you really want more SB rings than Bradshaw then I suggest getting out your checkbook and begin scouring the local pawn shops.

  65. raiderlyfe510 says: Jul 2, 2013 2:35 PM

    LOL this isn’t the NBA and their worthless championships were you can build a dynasty overnight. It’s a lot harder to win a Lombardi. Hard to picture Big Ben winning 3 more Lombardis. He still can’t beat Joe and Terry’s Superbowl winning percentage.

    It’s a excellent team oriented goal though.

  66. commonsensedude says: Jul 2, 2013 2:36 PM

    Quick question … Have those of you who get so outraged about people bringing up the rape allegations against Big Ben, who has never been convicted of anything, by any chance made jokes about Ray Lewis, who wasn’t convicted either? If so, ya might want to live up to the same standard you are demanding of others.

  67. ninetysixer says: Jul 2, 2013 2:37 PM

    bandwagon nation wants that as well, unfortunately you are in cap hell and are a distant second your own division.

  68. cheffyglenn says: Jul 2, 2013 2:37 PM

    Never seen so many mindless idiota hating on a great QB. Gonna be funny when Steelers win this year. Losers always cry when they can’t win. We got 6 rings how many do you have? And were not the only team to be in the league 80 yrs.

  69. ademell1 says: Jul 2, 2013 2:38 PM

    he’s already a better QB. rapist or not, more superbowls than bradshaw or or not – the guy is the better Qb that just hadn’t had the OL any other franchise Qb would by now.

    Bradshaw is easily the most overrated QB that lived. those teams were STACKED

    Well then let me take this moment to say it’s no different then all the losers who talk about Ray Lewis. Who has just as many championships. Has only been found guilty of obstruction of justice and has never had any run-ins with the law after that. He has not continually put himself in a position to come off as a criminal.

  71. nflofficeadmin says: Jul 2, 2013 2:42 PM

    Terry is still trying to figure out why Ben had to try so hard with them girls. They all came directly to him in his playing days …and he was well bald to boot.

  72. EJ says: Jul 2, 2013 2:42 PM

    I will give him maybe 1 more super bowl, but not 3, Its just too unrealistic. If the Ravens weren’t so strong of a team, then I would say its possible. Between the Ravens, Bengals and Browns, which are coming up with better teams Its just too tough. Age also has a factor in it too. Roethlisberger is no longer a spring chicken, he’s more like a middle aged buzzard, not quite yet an old crow, but getting there with the hits he takes.

    Steelers Fans: Maybe 1 more under Roethlisberger. Then, It will be time to look for another Franchise QB. Maybe this up and coming Draft? 2014 is going to be stacked with talent at the QB position. Maybe 5 QB’s will go in the top 15, that is how strong it will be.

  73. Robinson says: Jul 2, 2013 2:49 PM

  74. InsuranceExamTips says: Jul 2, 2013 2:53 PM

    Roethlisberger at his worst is 10X better than Bradshaw ever was. Bradshaw was and still is a hypersensitive moron.

    Ben’s play in SB XLII vs the Cardinals says it all. He not the Steelers defense won that game.. Dude’s clutch.

    Agree on the timing, but cannot even remember the last time the Steelers had a draft pick in the Top 15 (non-trade pick). I don’t expect this year to be much different.

  80. taosravenfan says: Jul 2, 2013 3:08 PM

    Bad news the ravens turned over 1 player on offense and while they did lose reed and Lewis they were in the late December of their careers which is about where half the steeler d is. Our d is now younger faster and got alot better at getting to the qb with the addition of Elvis dumervil at29 yrs of age. It is our division right now. Maybe that will change but for now the world is looming purple.

  81. seaeagle707 says: Jul 2, 2013 3:09 PM

    I assume that there are plenty of pawn shops in P’burgh, and up and down the Ohio Valley, and maybe even the Monongahela. You could start calling them, and then maybe expand your search to Skid Row in Chicago. Hope you aren’t choosy about what teams are on those rings. :}

    Joe Flacco is garbage. Stating this is his division is the stupidest statement I’ve ever seen. Wow, he had a good 3 game post season run thanks to ample support (Alex Smith, ring a bell?) He is not Jay Cutler bad, but he is far far far from being a dependable playoff caliber QB. Good luck with that

  85. steelcurtainn says: Jul 2, 2013 3:12 PM

    Keep working on it Big Ben, stay healthy and you’ll get there.
    Gotta love the steeler haters, even on a somewhat down year(8-8) people are still jealous of the Pittsburgh Steelers who own the most superbowl wins in NFL History.
    STEELER NATION!!!!!!

  86. Nofoolnodrool says: Jul 2, 2013 3:21 PM

    I guess the previous commenters would rather have their QB not ave lofty goals? How many of their teams have been to three SB’s like Ben? He may not be a great SB QB but he has done enough to get his team to the big game. Contrary to some so called steeler fans and Ben haters it hasn’t been solely the defenses that have gotten them to the SB. He is not the dream QB but he is what we have and I support him on the field ….not off the field.

  87. jpaq68 says: Jul 2, 2013 3:22 PM

    Faceless, nameless pea brains likening BR to Hernandez or even OJ is funny stuff. Even though that event occurred, seemingly, a lifetime ago, and there’s been plenty of NFL police blotter since, haters still love bringing it up. Don’t you fools know Milledgeville authorities tried vehemently to get an arrest?…..please, please come up with something else pea brains. You know, criticize his on field play. But that’s hard when he’s consistently a top 5 rated QB, isn’t it?

  89. jacktheraven says: Jul 2, 2013 3:28 PM

    I’m a Ravens fan. I’ll give Ben credit though. He’s good enough. The Steelers are good enough. But, we all should know how HARD it is to win a SB, especially 4. Ben has been to 3? It’s going to be hard for any QB to win 2 in the next 5-7 years.

    Since he handed Pittsburgh the biggest sex scandal in the history of the NFL, Rothlisbooger has gone from bad to worse. I’m sure fans of other teams would love for him to stay because of all his baggage and the negative impact it has had on a once great franchise. 2013 is going to be a real challenge. The British press is going to have him for lunch. Defenses are going to tear him apart. He obviously has very few friends left. It’s really sad, but this is what happen when, unlike Ray Lewis, you lack the courage to admit your mistakes and learn from them.

  93. stainlessstill says: Jul 2, 2013 3:30 PM

    Just the sheer amount of hate in these comments tell me Roethlisberger and Pittsburgh are primed for another run. Trash talk means your relevant to peoples fears. The THREAT is high.

    Second year in a new offense, working out the wrinkles. Staying fresh. Staying motivated. As long as things continue to evolve, the Steelers have just as good as a shot to get back to the big one than any team and that is proof in these comments.

    If Pittsburgh wasn’t as feared, nobody would give a damn but point is, noone’s going to fool themselves into thinking the Steelers are done. Just stop lieing to yourself, haters.

    The Steelers are ready for their 9th title run now! No worries, haters. We commin’ for you. Good stuff.

    LOL. That same year within the allegations and missing an entire months worth of football, he came back and led his team to the Super Bowl in 2010. That pass to that rookie Antonio Brown on 3rd an 19 was sweet, huh? If Mendenhall doesn’t fumble, the Steelers roll out their 7th trophy!

    No worries, Ben is in a new system for a year and if the team stays healthy, we are primed for another solid run. Get use to it, his prime years will see many more trophies and in turn, torment the same fans he’s tormented since 2004. Ring #7 comin for #7!

    Joe Flacco is garbage. Stating this is his division is the stupidest statement I’ve ever seen. Wow, he had a good 3 game post season run thanks to ample support (Alex Smith, ring a bell?) He is not Jay Cutler bad, but he is far far far from being a dependable playoff caliber QB. Good luck with that

    ______________________

    If nothing else, Joe IS a “DEPENDABLE PLAYOFF CALIBER QB.” Flacco is the anti-Manning. He’s not great in the regular season, but in the playoffs, he comes to life. Would you rather have just a good regular season QB and join the likes of Manning and Romo, or the other way around? Yes, Joe only has one ring right now, but he’s 5 years in, and I’d bet my life he gets another before Ben does.

    To say ” Joe Flacco is garbage” is a steeler homer of the worst kind. He’s the SBMVP and you’re to blind to see it.

    He’s not even as good at serial rape as Hernandez is at serial murder. Always coming in second-best. Maybe that’s where all that rapey rage came from?

  100. rockinrodie says: Jul 2, 2013 4:03 PM

    stainlessstill, you’re spot on. The reason nobody talks about convicted felon, Mike Vick, is because he sucks and is irrelevant. Ben’s still a top 5 QB. And because he still plays at a high level, people want to see him fail. He won’t. BTW, I’m not a fan of any other pro team, but I certainly wouldn’t waste time writing negative comments on any teams site, hoping to stir up fans.

  101. stainlessstill says: Jul 2, 2013 4:08 PM

    Oh, and I’m not religious. I don’t need to hope and pray. I have total trust that this team is going to respond from the season a year ago and fix things up to win those 3 point games this time around. Preaching and praying only comes from people who get away with murder. Bahhaha.

    Note to the Pissburgh faithful,

    The reason the rapist was never convicted is because he paid the girls to keep their mouths shut and without their testimony the DA didn’t have enough evidence to go to court. That doesn’t make the rapist innocent, it just means he paid enough money to stay out of jail.

    No fool no drool, citizenstrange and bobzilla, it’s too bad that a lot of thumbs down you guys are getting are probably from fellow Steelers fans. It’s a shame that the truth is considered “un fan like”.

    I’m a Pats fan and while our defense hasn’t been teriffic in awhile ( let alone Steelers level great), it’s my team’s offense that has been the main culprit in their recent SB and playoff losses, not the D, and my team has an elite QB. The truth is the truth.

    It’s pretty well known how much I don’t like BR’s public persona but I see nothing wrong with him wanting more rings. I do think he was taking a little dig at Bradshaw though which he should be above by now. As should Bradshaw with him. It looks petty by both guys.

    Didn’t have enough evidence? Like what? No forced entry? No bodily functions? No nothing. There wasn’t enough evidence because there simply….was nothing. Can’t bend those facts, murder-lovers.

    I believe Ben grew up and put himself in those idiotic situations. He deserved blame and bought women drinks and I’m sure the 1,000 women that took their picture with him wanted his sausage. Regardless, not sure what those testimony’s you speak of would of made a difference. The chicks were 2 times over the legal limit. Their testimonies would of consisted of a blur!

    @jackwagon.
    That is the dumbest comment I read today. You keep telling yourself that’s what happen. Big Ben will keep playing football. Some people will make up anything when you hate. Is there any proof, indication or sign of that. Didn’t think so…..

  109. Nofoolnodrool says: Jul 2, 2013 4:53 PM

    It’s really sad, but this is what happen when, unlike Ray Lewis, you lack the courage to admit your mistakes and learn.

    This is the funniest comment ever posted by a troll on this thread. Ray Lewis has never had the courage to admit anything because if he did he would incriminate himself. Not a good comparison between a person who lies to to the police to save his butt….you are a joke to make such a statement.

  110. steelcurtainn says: Jul 2, 2013 4:56 PM

    I will say, I don’t think Joe Flacco is garbage. To me, he is just an above average qb who got on a nice 3 game run in the playoffs last year with some help from Denver’s mishaps.

    But to the poster who said he comes to life in the playoffs. He did last year, true, BUT what about the other 4 years of losses in the playoffs. It was win and then loss every year with 2 of those losses coming at the helm of the Steelers. I would hardly call that coming to life. I highly doubt Flacco wins another ring Before Big Ben does and I certainly wouldn’t bet my life on it, not that it would be followed through anyways. I guess, we will just have to wait and see.

  111. Joemontanaflacco says: Jul 2, 2013 5:10 PM

    “Ray Lewis has never had the courage to admit anything because if he did he would incriminate himself.”

    How weird. Everything I read about Ray Lewis has him testifying in OPEN COURT under penalty of perjury. And by testifying, I mean having to answer questions posed by both the prosecutor and the defense. It’s called the adversarial system which we use here in the United States of America. Maybe you’re talking about another Ray Lewis? No worries. We all make mistakes.

    ———————————————————
    Agree on the timing, but cannot even remember the last time the Steelers had a draft pick in the Top 15 (non-trade pick). I don’t expect this year to be much different.

    No, they probably won’t end up with a first round pick in the top end of the draft, but I see them pulling a trade in order to snag one of these future star QB’s. I know most of these Quarterback’s now days last until 36-37 years old, but Roethlisberger has taken a few too many big hits. I am guessing he’ll last until 34-35, just long enough to help bring up his heir apparent.

  113. 2ruefan says: Jul 2, 2013 5:32 PM

    Sorry Steelers Fans. Ben is good enough. The defense is definitely good enough. But football just ain’t what it was in the 1970s. Free agency has changed things DRAMATICALLY. Every year you see a team go from worst to first. And vice versa.. so competition in the league is much greater.

    In the days when the Steelers dominated, you were on a team and pretty much stayed there for your career. So, teams built dynasties and stayed great for the better part of a decade if they drafted well. Steelers, Cowboys, are examples.

    But that just does not happen anymore.. and I don’t think it ever will again. So, they have just as good a chance as any other team to win more superbowls, but the likelihood that Ben will win 3 more at age 31?

    More likely that he’ll crash is motorcycle and break his skull again than reach that milestone….

    thanks for your honest assessment of flacco steelcurtainn. your bring up his performances in playoff losses. i would say flacco’s playoff hot streak begain in 2011. he torched the pats and if not for a lee evans drop, the ravens would have been in the super bowl two straight years. nofool…to me the joke is you. but no reason to revisit. you keep cheering for plax and trying to convince yourself the steelers arent like every other team. its just sad

  122. scoobies05 says: Jul 2, 2013 7:29 PM

    Wow flacco a great quarterback? Didn’t the d carry him thru the superbowl?he got beat by a third string 15yr vet whose now retired. Fact guys swallow hard and suck it up. Next murderer, rapist, whatever you show immaturity and stupidity. Now my point to ponder is big ben is a good qb and while having the talent has won 2 superbowls. He also is a big name outside of pittsburgh , flacco on the other is a good qb but is now without his “go to guy” and his blocking fullback, plus have holes to a secondary without the likes of reed,lewis,kruger, center birk etc… if baltimore is to repeat its not happening this year boys and girls. Flacco nears that injury plague age too!!!!!(!

  125. scoobies05 says: Jul 2, 2013 8:16 PM

    actually no….the defense didnt carry the ravens to the superbowl. flacco did by putting up 11 tds and 0 ints. it was in all the papers. dont know how you missed it. and i dont see how a guy who caught 67 passes for 4 tds in the regular season is a go to guy. but either way hes gone. so next man up.

  126. bjsdad says: Jul 2, 2013 8:25 PM

  131. afamiliesstruggle says: Jul 2, 2013 9:43 PM

    The squealer fans ahh yes.. lets examine some history the Steelers were founded in 1933 in the original NFL. In that time frame of 36 years the steelers played in 0 yes 0 title games. While the browns played in 11 yes 11 winning 4. So in that time frame the browns were 11 times better than the Steelers. The Steelers were in existence for 40 years before they were in a superbowl in a league now diluted with players where the NFL the original NFL WAS a league of elites and the steelers were that leagues doormat. Just a history lesson.

  132. jmblosser82 says: Jul 2, 2013 10:02 PM

    Boldin lead the team in yards and receptions, smith beat him out in TDs 8-4. So yes on big plays Boldin was the go to guy.

  133. taosravenfan says: Jul 3, 2013 12:29 AM

    Flacon was a one hit wonder? Have you bothered to watch him play last year and lately against your stillers? Give credit where it is due. Joe has worked hard and in 5 yrs has become an upper echelon QB.

    I have no problems admitting that Ben is a helluva QB. His biggest issue is how he plays the game. When was the last time he played in 16 games in the regular season? When was the last time flacco didn’t? The answer is that joe has not missed a game in 5 years. Ben has not played a full season in at least 3. He will be like Donavan McNabb. His body is going to give out earlier than the average QB. It’s just the way he plays the game. I would be very surprised if he is an nfl QB at age 35. That gives him 4 yrs to win 3 SBs. Just don’t see it happening.

  134. scoobies05 says: Jul 3, 2013 6:33 AM

    As the one writer wrote, these comments about Ben being a rapist are getting old. We don’t know what really happened at that bar. We only know for certain that this was an under age girl in a bar drinking with men. Why don’t you question her character? And you all forget that the first part of last year Ben was having a pro-bowl year. And yes he has not played a full season in what, 3 years? Well look at the line he has had to play behind? Every game he had one or two different linemen supposedly protecting him..and didn’t. He has had the highest sacked totals than most qbs. He always fought hard to keep many drives alive after being flushed out of the pocket so many times. If Ben had a good line and half backs who could run to make those linemen think about coming at him at full speed, then he would not be so much damaged goods. Ben has had to work with receivers who could catch, half backs who would not run and linemen who could not block. Yet in still Ben is a helluva quarterback and I feel he is among the top 5. I can see him winning another ring and possibly 2 but 3 is a stretch at his age. With the young line he has now I can see them playing at a pro bowl level within a year but not this year. Bradshaw was great and will always be a legend in Pittsburgh but look how many players he had around him that are now enshrined in Canton?

    Isn’t this what he’s supposed to want???? Shouldn’t every player from every team want to win the Super Bowl as many times as they can????

    I for one wouldn’t want a quarterback who’s okay with winning two . . . . or none . . . . or one – the goal here ladies and gentlemen is the ring!

    If they don’t want it, they shouldn’t be playing. Keep wanting it Ben, it’s what you are supposed to want.

    Once the world finds out what really happened in that Georgia bathroom (the off duty cops who were Roethlisbooger’s bodyguards miraculously know nah-thing!) and this scandal is finally revealed, Roethlisbooger will be giving BACK the two rings he has (but hardly earned).

  145. taosravenfan says: Jul 9, 2013 2:54 AM

    @fooleydrooley – the point is that if your qb is not healthy enough to play the majority or all of the season, you significantly decrease your likelihood of going to the SB. Yes, Ben has played in SB’s as in multiple, but as he has aged he has become very fragile. If in a 16 game season he only plays an average of 11 or 12 games, then you are counting on your backup to win his share of a quarter of a season. It just isn’t likely. But keep deluding yourself. Gradkowski is an awesome backup.
