Hopefully they don't have to wait another 25 years for another franchise QB.
The Ravens have made the playoffs 6 of the last 7 years. The year they missed Kyle Boller was their starting qb.
The Steelers have made the playoffs 4 of the last 7 years. Every year Roethlisberger was their starting qb.
Don't give me any AFC North nonsense. And if you go back more than 7 years... Kyle Boller was their starting qb.
Roethlisberger is the second best qb in Steelers history. Bradshaw actually had some really clutch performances in big games (read superbowls).
I agree that Roethlisberger will make the HoF. I'm not sure that it matters which ballot.
I for one hope Roethlisberger stops his girlish dramatics and reestablishes the Steelers as the best team in the AFC North. I am a little tired of watching the Ravens go to the playoffs.
