Ben(Big Ben) Roethlisberger’s Amazing 18 year Career

POSTED February 3, 2022

At the beginning of the NFL season, there was speculation that Ben Roethlisberger would be playing his last season of football. Unsurprisingly, the speculations turned out to be true. As of January 27, 2022, Ben Roethlisberger (Big Ben) has officially retired at the age of 39 years old, becoming the best quarterback in the Steelers Franchise and becoming the 5th all-time quarter-back for passing yards and 3rd of all time for 4th quarter comebacks (41), just behind Tom Brady and Peyton Manning.

 

Throughout his 18-year career

With Roethlisberger at quarterback, the Steelers had 12 postseason berths, won eight AFC North Championships, appeared in five AFC Championship games, and went to three Super Bowls, winning two of them. He also went to 6 Pro-Bowls. In his debut season, he won  “The Offensive Rookie of the Year Award”. Roethlisberger was originally set to sit behind Tommy Maddox during his rookie season, but after Maddox suffered an injury in the second game of the 2004 campaign, Roethlisberger became the starter. He finished 13-0 in the regular season, totaling 2,261 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.

Big Ben is a great person as well as an excellent football player and he should be respected for all he has done in the NFL and in our community. I wish the best for Big Ben as his time in the NFL concludes and that the rest of his life will be full and grand filled with great experiences in or out of the NFL. When he is living a normal life, I hope that he will stay the outgoing and caring person that he is.  I love him so much for that and it is one of the many reasons that Ben Roethlisberger should be in the hall of fame.
