Default Roethlisberger: Aaron Rodgers is 'elite'

By James Walker
PITTSBURGH -- Expect the "E" word to be thrown around a lot as we talk about the two quarterbacks competing in Super XLV.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger got the ball rolling Wednesday when describing Green Bay Packers counterpart Aaron Rodgers.


"I think he's a phenomenal quarterback. I think he's an elite quarterback in this league, in my opinion," Roethlisberger said. "He has a really quick release, a strong arm, very accurate and a mobile guy."

Roethlisberger and Rodgers, both in their prime, are staking their claim this season as two of the NFL's best quarterbacks. Both are climbing into that rare category at the very top of the quarterback hierarchy currently occupied by Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

Roethlisberger has a chance to tie Brady, as he's going for his third Super Bowl title in seven seasons. Rodgers is competing in his first Super Bowl in six seasons. Although both will be competitors, Roethlisberger described Rodgers as a "good friend."

Super Bowl XLV will be a great showcase for both of these talented quarterbacks on the NFL's biggest stage.

Cool Re: Roethlisberger: Aaron Rodgers is 'elite'

Players shouldn't be able to be judged as elite until well after the conclusion of their careers. How many Ws and skins-on-the-wall did your teams accumulate? That's all that matters at the end of the day.

Dan Marino wasn't elite? John Elway wasn't elite until 1997?

You're right. There are exceptions to the rule indeed. I've watched the NFL for fhe last 21 years and have seen very few "elite" QBs in that time.

As a Steelers fan though, the standard is winning. That's more-so the point I was making.

Elway wasn't elite in 1997, his RB was elite...

Ben and Aaron are prime time. The two best in the NFL right now. This should be a Super Bowl for the ages.

Geez, even when Ben totes the line he gets roasted a bit for using to good of a word.

Dammit Ben just shut up, lol there is room for only one elite QB come Feb 6th and it better by you, lol
