Usually not interested in stats, Ben Roethlisberger can't wait to reach this obscure milestone
by Mark Kaboly
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has always been a guy who doesn't much care about stats or milestones.
They just don't interest him as much as winning.
However, Roethlisberger is sort of obsessed with an approaching milestone, and it's not the milestone of becoming the Steelers all-time leader in passing yards.
"I know I am only a couple yards away from rushing for 1,000 yards. That's a little cooler to me," Roethlisberger said
With 44 yards rushing, Roethlisberger will become the 43rd quarterback in NFL history to surpass 1,000 rushing yards.
Roethlisberger has 956 yards and need 13 to pass Neil Lomax, 44 to reach 1,000 and 47 to pass Fran Tarkenton.
