Pittsburgh Steelers Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger recently turned 30 years old. After eight seasons in the National Football League, Roethlisberger has led the Steelers to three Super Bowl appearances and two victories. This would be considered a pretty darn good resume by most experts and would be taken in a heartbeat by the vast majority of signal-callers in NFL history. The casual football fan might think that the age of 30 for a QB means he is on the down-side of his career and for some that is true, but for many it was just the beginning of a great career. Roethlisberger has a chance to be one of those with great careers after 30 due to the right pieces being in place. Take a look at the list of quarterbacks who have won Super Bowls at the age of 30 or beyond. Bart Starr (2) Len Dawson Johnny Unitas Roger Staubach Terry Bradshaw (2) Jim Plunkett Joe Theismann Phil Simms Doug Williams Joe Montana (2) Peyton Manning Brad Johnson John Elway (2) Steve Young Mark Rypien Of that s...

The case for keeping the Big Snack in Pittsburgh

With so many restructures already in the books for the Steelers, along with all the recent cuts, there’s a solid case for keeping NT Casey Hampton on the team in 2012.  “He’s recovering from ACL surgery” you say?

Hines Ward is a Perfect Fit with Tim Tebow in Denver

When Hines Ward was released by the Pittsburgh Steelers this week everyone mentioned his strengths, first on the list is his ability to block downfield.  I think that his ability to block downfield along with his sure hands makes him a perfect fit to play with Tim Tebow in Denver.
