sometimes i ask myself and have this debate with fellow Steeler fans. most agree with me and some don't. but i ask if Ben Roethlisberger is Hall of Fame bound? the kid has some records here and there, a Super Bowl, and a winning team behind him. but if he can't make it now, what will it take to get him there? ...this one is open to debate.

I think its waayyy to early to think of HOF for Ben.

Yeah I agree that's its way too early to be talking HOF. In 8 years his legacy will be set in stone, we'll discuss it then :laughing:

If he sells his motorcycle he will make it.

Depends - if he has 6-8 more seasons like he did in 2007? Most definitely. If he has 6-8 more seasons like 2006 or this year? Nope. At this point, as others have said, it's way too early to be having this discussion about Ben.

i think if he can snag a few more Super Bowls...then he'll be good to go. but that's easier said than done for sure.

I think that he could one day be HoF. As of now no. He's far too inconsistent, unfortunately for us.

If Ben gets one more win this season he will have the most wins ever by any QB in their first five years. If that doesn't say HOF I don't know what does.:tt:

close this thread and open it back up in 5 years. I think you need 10 years minimum to be HOF bound, unless you are the quarterback of a team that has won the superbowl 2 or more times in a short time span, and you were a big reason for getting to the superbowl and winning it both times. And even that for me is pushing it a bit.

Let's see....Hall of Fame....100 million dollar contract, can't complete better than 30% of his passes....Cowboys turned the ball over 4 times in the first half and it is tied 3 - 3. Ben is horrible and should have been pulled 4 games ago. Take out field goals and If I'm watching the same games as everyone else, I think we've scored about 4 offensive touchdowns in the last 5 games. Leftwich rules and Ben needs to "ride the pine" for awhile so he can see what an NFL quarterback is supposed to be. I feel really bad for our defensive players. Tomlin should seriously consider punting on 1st down in hopes that our defense gets a pic and runs it back for 7. Roethlisretard is an IDIOT!!!!
