Roethlisberger Ranked Below Drew Brees? Time to Take Action


ESPN.com is polling the public, asking them to rank the NFL’s quarterbacks.

Brady and Manning come out on top, which is understandable (although that is not how Steel Curtain Rising ranked them, as you can see....)

At number three you have none other than….

Drew Brees.

That’s right, Drew Brees is currently besting Ben Roethlisberger. And it is not even close. The last time I checked, Brees had more than 200,000 votes than Ben.

Let's get this straight, according the the website Pro Football Reference, both Brees and Ben have identical passer ratings of 89.5. OK, so then how to distinguish? Let's look at how they've put those passer ratings to work for their respective teams:

Drew Brees has led his teams to the playoffs twice
  • Ben has led his team to the playoffs four times
Drew Brees has played in only three playoff games

  • Ben has played in ten playoff games
Drew Brees has won one playoff game

  • Ben has won eight playoff games
And of course, Ben has won two Super Bowls in his first five years in the league.

I don’t get it.

Time to Rally Behind Roethlisberger

So its time to rally behind Ben Roethlisberger. Steel Curtain Rising holds nothing against Drew Brees, but the record speaks for itself. Ben Roethlisberger is a better quarterback than Drew Brees.
