Steelers Two-Minute Drill: 11 years of Ben Roethlisberger, 11 years without a losing season

New, comments

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been one of the fortunate few to have a franchise quarterback lead their teams for over a decade. Ben Roethlisberger is in his 11th year and has yet to experience a losing season.

The Pittsburgh Steelers defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 42-21 Sunday didn't just keep their AFC North division hopes alive, but also marked their eighth win of the 2014 season. In other words, the Steelers cannot finish with a losing record this year.

That's the 11th time Ben Roethlisberger has quarterbacked a team that hasn't finished below .500, and if you did your math correctly, it's Roethlisberger's 11th season with the Steelers and in the NFL.

In this week's Steelers 2-Minute Drill, editor of BTSC, Neal Coolong, talks about Roethlibserger's importance to the Steelers' organization, the potential contract talks coming in the off-season and, ultimately, how impressive the stretch Roethlisberger has put together since taking the helm in 2004 as a rookie has been.
