What a ride for Big Ben in Pittsburgh.
Despite coming into training camp in reported great shape, the Steelers QB has struggled this season and has Pittsburgh fans hoping to get into the playoffs at 5-5-1.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Roethlisberger expects to be playing his final season in Pittsburgh for the 18-year veteran, and one can only assume that means Ben will hang it up unless a team comes calling.
The former 11th overall pick will have a decent chance at making it to Canton, currently ranked 7th all-time in NFL career passing yards, 12th all-time in passer rating (94.3), tied for 9th in yards per attempt (7.8), and tied for 12th in completion percentage (64.4%) among quarterbacks with a minimum of 1,500 career attempts. He also has the fourth-highest career winning percentage (.710) as a starter in the regular season among quarterbacks with a minimum of 100 starts. He is one of six quarterbacks in NFL history to have beaten at least 31 of the current 32 NFL teams. (Wikipedia).
He has won two Super Bowls with the franchise.
