Roethlisberger: I want more Super Bowl rings than Bradshaw
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has two Super Bowl rings. Which puts him three short of his goal.
At his appearance in London to promote the American version of football, Roethlisberger said his goal is to have the most Super Bowl rings of any starting quarterback in Steelers history. Which would also mean he’d have the most Super Bowl rings of any starting quarterback in NFL history, as Steelers Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw and 49ers Hall of Famer Joe Montana share the current record with four.
“I want to pass Terry Bradshaw by getting more Super Bowl wins. That’s our expectations in Pittsburgh,” Roethlisberger said, via Steelers PR man Burt Lauten.
Roethlisberger also made clear that he wants to win all of those Super Bowls in Pittsburgh.
“There is no other franchise I would rather play for than the Pittsburgh Steelers,” he said.
Realistically, the odds are against the 31-year-old Roethlisberger winning three more Super Bowls, in Pittsburgh or anywhere else. For that matter, the odds would be against any NFL player winning three more Super Bowls. But Roethlisberger, who has never been close to Bradshaw, would love to eclipse the Hall of Fame quarterback who came before him in Pittsburgh.
