Yet, we hear how Romo is a top 4 qb with Manning, Favre, and Brady, and Ben is left out of the top 4 in all the talking head's "lists".

Seriously...No Respect for the Steelers.

after all he is just a game manager :wink02:

Romo is good, and will get better, but until he wins at least one playoff game he is not a top 5 QB

Seriously...No Respect for the Steelers.i was reading no quarterback has ever had 2 perfect passer ratings in a single season. yet ben has.

then again, it seemed as a media afterthought that parker was leading the league in rushing before breaking his leg. it was a bigger story that fred taylor got to go to the probowl because of it.

and lost in all the hoopla of brady breaking mannings td record, and the 72 dolphins streak, was that last weekend tom broke BEN ROETHLISBERGER'S record of 14 consecutive wins in a single season. the media would never mention that though, after all nothing ben does could ever be significant.

doesnt it seem like ben is the one with an * next to all of his records and accomlishments?

strange Forty "perfect games" have been thrown by thirty-four quarterbacks since the advent of passer ratings in 1973,[1] four of which have occurred in the post-season. Only four men have achieved the feat more than once: Peyton Manning has thrown four, Ben Roethlisberger has three, Dave Krieg and Kurt Warner have two. Chad Pennington is the only quarterback to achieve this feat in a loss. To qualify, a QB must attempt at least 10 passes. This is a list-in-progress of NFL perfect games:

I also seem to remember that no one outside of Pittsburgh mentioned that Ben broke Bradshaw's record.

Congrats to Ben
