O.K. If Bradshaw is the best qb we`ve ever had, and Ben is hopefully the next best. To early to tell yet. Who is the second best qb in Steelers history.

I`d probably say Neil Odonnel, though I really like Bubby`s attitude but not so much his accuracy.

How close is Unitas on that list? Since Terry has all the rings, I guess everyone else is lumped together underneath.

As a Pittsburgh star qb.

Johnny Unitas Glance was born on May 7, 1933. Though he grew up in Pittsburgh, it was Baltimore where Unitas first became famous. From 1956-1972 he served as the Baltimore Colts star quarterback. As his legend grew, the 6'1" 195 pound "Johnny U" also became known for his signature crewcut and black hightops. Talented, confident and determined, Unitas often called his own plays on the field. "It's like being in a huddle with God," former Colts teammate John Mackey once said.

Maybe that could be another thread, who is the best qb from the area. Now that would be up for some debate.
