Ben Roethlisberger wants to make Pittsburgh history and says he is motivated by the thought of winning more Super Bowl rings than Steelers legend Terry Bradshaw.
Roethlisberger was in London on Tuesday to promote Pittburgh’s game against the Minnesota Vikings at Wembley Stadium on September 29.
He has quite a way to go if he wants to match Bradshaw on Super Bowl wins, as the Hall of Fame quarterback won it on four occasions between 1970 and 1983.
‘Big Ben’ is half way to chasing down that record and you would not bet against him eventually surpassing it, as he has made a habit of surpassing milestones since he was drafted to in the first round of the 2004 draft.
Roethlisberger holds the record for the most season wins for a rookie QB with 13 in 2004; he is the youngest starting QB to ever have won the Super Bowl; as well as the being the first QB to start two Conference Championship games in his first two NFL seasons.
London’s media gathered to question him ahead of the match when he was asked about his continued motivation.
"I want to pass Terry Bradshaw by getting more Super Bowl wins – That's our expectations in Pittsburgh,” was his reply.
Emulating Bradshaw would be quite a feat as he was the first quarterback to win four Super Bowl rings, though Roethlisberger surpassed his all-time passing yards record last season with 29,844.
