This time around in our look at which player most burns the beans on the grill of Steeler Nation, BTSC brings you the battle of the quarterbacks. Will it be a perrennial tormentor or a Super Bowl vanquisher?

Let’s take a look.

A lot of BTSC’s readers thought that Tom Brady should be the top seed in the bad guy bracket. Brady is a different kind of villain. The Pats quarterback is regarded by some as the GOAT due to his five Super Bowl victories. Others label him as a cheat not worthy of that label due to Deflategate.

He’s smug, has a supermodel wife and seems to get calls if he is merely breathed on. But the number one reason that Steeler fans loathe Brady is his long history of beating their team. Against the Steelers, Brady (in nine regular-season games) is 7-2, has thrown 24 touchdowns against three picks for 2,826 yards, has a QBR of 114.2 and a completion percentage of 69.5%. In the playoffs, he haS proved even more devastating to the Steelers. He's 3-0 with 5 TDs to 0 INTs, has a completed 71.60 per cent of his passes and has a QBR of 118.6.

Rodgers was a “write-in” selection from the comments section in the preview for this series. The two biggest knocks against Rodgers was the media’s lovefest for “Ay-Ay Ron” and the fact that he picked-apart the Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. In that game, the Steelers could not get Rodgers to discount double check himself before he wrecked himself. He threw for 3 TDs, no picks had a QBR of 111.5 and was named MVP of that game. I'm still not over it.
