That comeback against Cleveland was absolutely phenomenal. Everyone seems to forget the year that he was outstanding and we were an aerial attack. Loved Tommy in the XFL, then when he signed by Pittsburgh I went crazy lol. I was also very young at that point in time and he stopped and talked to me for close to 5 minutes in training camp. He was a great guy.

Riddle,
My dad has said this, numerous times:
"I think that Ben was permanently affected by his bike accident, but nobody talks about it."

My unpopular opinion:
I really, really like Terrell Suggs.

Fame and money tends to have that effect on some people too.

I was at that game in '02. I've been to a TON of Steelers games in my time. I have a locker full of ticket stubs. I've been to some wild and crazy playoff games, including the entire playoff run in '08 and the entire playoff run in '10 that saw some crazy wins and finish's.

Heinz Field was ON FIRE when Troy picked Flacco off in '08. My mind is still fuzzy. After that pick, the place went so nuts but the game that easily ranks #1 for me, personally, is that Browns '02 comeback.

My favorite game in attendance of ALL TIME. Not only was that game the birth of Renegade, but that comeback and back and forth battle in the 4th QRT was stuff made of legends (STILL not sure how Northcutt dropped that 3rd and 12.)

At one point, I had such a migraine headache from screaming in the 4th QRT that I had to sit down and squeeze my head to get through it. When 'FU scored, that place ERUPTED (even with those morons who left early.) I was running up and down the bleachers picking people up as we all hugged our ass's off. What a great game. Great memory and day in Steelers history.

Tommy Gun was THEE man at the time. It was hard envisioning somebody coming in and taking his job at one point, but '03 ensued and a kid by the name of Roethlisberger accomplished wonders.

Great story, I was at the game in Cleveland that year. Pittsburgh won 23-20 and we were down 14-3 early before Tommy Gun led another comeback. That was the same game that Dennis Northcutt returned a long punt and there had to have been at least 5 blocks in the back, but never lose faith in Tommy Gun!

I love how 4 different people have the same "unpopular" opinion- that Roethlisberger is the only reasons the Steelers have won anything and that he is the best quarterback in the league.

I can't get away from you fast enough.

No one flamed your opinion therefore it is not unpopular watch this...

GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK HEADS! ROETHLISBERGER IS NOT A TOP 5 QUARTERBACK!

Now THAT is an unpopular opinion.
