Default Ben about to pass Terry in yards

Different era, different game, but still a nice feather in his cap. The Steelers' most attempts under Terry in a season were 492 in 1979, 484 in 1980. Those numbers would have been good enough for 27th in last year's NFL.

And 1979 and 1980 were after the league implemented the Mel Blount rule. In 1975, perhaps the Steelers best team every threw the ball 337 times, almost 100 fewer passes than the 32nd team last season.

Just some perspective as the league continues to verbally fellate guys like Drew Brees and Tom Brady for playing pitch and catch across the middle.

Terry's also ahead by a mile in "HOF teammates".

Hopefully, Terry doesn't go off on one of his bitter rants about this.

All the old QBs records are going to get blown away. The new modern NFL with all of the rules changes the last 5 years have made it easy for QB's to pass and get completion yards. Arena football just on a bigger field.

Ben Roethlisberger says Terry Bradshaw's words hurt

By Gregg Rosenthal
Published: Oct. 10, 2012

Ben Roethlisberger has been featured prominently in our early MVP watch. The stats haven't quite exploded yet and the Pittsburgh Steelers are only 2-2, but we believe Big Ben is playing at a higher level now than ever before in his career.

He's carrying the Steelers and their shortcomings more than ever. The mental part of Roethlisberger's game have improved and his physical skills have yet to decline. He's overcome a terrible offensive line and an inferior running game. His wide receivers have hurt Big Ben with uncharacteristic drops, but Roethlisberger has been accurate.

Another 4,000-yard season seems inevitable. Roethlisberger will break Terry Bradshaw's franchise record for yards along the way. It could happen Thursday night against the Titans. He's only 300 yards away, but hasn't heard from Bradshaw despite an "intermediary" trying to connect them, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Roethlisberger praised Bradshaw as "The Guy" in Pittsburgh and said it was an honor to pass him. But the two men haven't had a good relationship going back to some comments Bradshaw made when Roethlisberger was embroiled in his rape controversy.

"We haven't talked," Roethlisberger said of Bradshaw. "I've never had an issue [with him]. He said a bunch of things in the past about me; it hurts a little bit when you think about family, but I've never been one to say anything to him or at him."

Roethlisberger is almost taken for granted, but he's one of the best five quarterbacks in the league. Thursday night's showcase and possible record will be a reminder of how much he's already accomplished at age 30.

I put zero credibility into the MVP Watch, since Joe Flacco was on the list. Ridiculous.

I don't agree.
If the Rats continue to do well and enter the playoffs as a high seed, he'll probably get a lot of attention and support for MVP.
I think their O is going to bail out their D quite a bit this year.

BB's has stated, since the day that he was drafted, that his goal is to win FIVE (or more) SuperBowls for the Steelers. Why? His response: four was how many Terry won; I want to win one more than that. I guess that when Terry heard this, it hurt his feelings... or something dumb like that.

Anyway, on the day that BB was drafted, I predicted that he'd lead the Steelers to six SuperBowls, winning five of them. Ergo, that explains the one loss...

or the refs, they negated a touchdown that might have meant a win for KC

the replacement refs a couple weeks ago, aided flacco with 2 BS penalties that resulted in a win.
