Last season Ben Roethlisberger surpassed Terry Bradshaw for the Pittsburgh Steelers team record in passing yards. That record was set over a 14 year career for Bradshaw, but it took Roethlisberger only 9 years to break it. However, Roethlisberger still needs 21 touchdowns to pass Bradshaw for that all-time category “It’s an awesome honor, you know?” Roethlisberger told Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette last October. “Shoot, a storied franchise and he’s The Guy, the face of this. I know there’s a lot of ’70s Steelers, but, when you’re talking about quarterbacks and offense and stuff, he’s the guy. To have an opportunity to break another record — and this one is a pretty big one.” There is, however, another category where Roethlisberger would like to surpass Bradshaw: Super Bowl wins. Bradshaw won four rings with the Steelers during the 1970′s; giving him two more than Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger has been to three Super Bowls during his career, but a 31-25 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl 45 means he still needs three rings to surpass Bradshaw instead of two. Winning three Super Bowls during a career is quite the feat, but winning three more from the age of 31 is closer to the unheard-of category. Even so, Ben Roethlisberger is on a quest to be the most decorated quarterback in Steelers history and as one of the NFL’s best he still has a chance, albeit small, to pull it off. “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 it clear that he wants to win the rest of those rings with the team he won his first two with: “There is no other franchise I would rather [...]
