The Pittsburgh Steelers have been widely known to be one of the most notable NFL teams and are recognized as very strong contenders for the Super Bowl. With the success of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the field, one thing remains certain for the fans and followers of the NFL team: Ben Roethlisberger is behind every victory.

While the other NFL teams, such as the Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans, struggle to find a fitting quarterback to lead their plays, Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers only gets better season after season. In fact, offensive coordinator Todd Haley shared that the widely commended quarterback is at his "best" at this point in his NFL career.

"You can see that he [Ben Roethlisberger] has reached deep and turned it up another notch even though these are easy days not to be into it, but he has kept his focus, which is a lot of work when you have a lot of young people around you," said Haley in an interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He went on to say that he has not seen anybody else "who can do everything" the same way Ben Roethlisberger has in his games with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The backup quarterback of Ben Roethlisberger in the Pittsburgh Steelers echo the same sentiments. QB Bruce Gradkowski shared, "I have never been around a guy who can kind of change his throwing point in the middle of his delivery." The Pittsburgh Steeler backup QB further said, "A receiver might do something different that we didn't practice, but [Ben Roethlisberger] can still be accurate with the football. A lot of people don't understand how difficult that is. Ben's arm talent is just insane."

With these comments in mind, a number of sports analysts cannot help but compare Ben Roethlisberger to the great Terry Bradshaw. Taking into consideration the gravity of the contribution made by Terry Bradshaw to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the NFL team experienced dark times when the legendary quarterback retired. This may once again be the case when the time comes for Ben Roethlisberger to hang his football jersey for good. At the moment though, sports experts believe that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger still has four years of notable performance in him - that is, barring injuries and other unexpected events.

Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Steelers might see the departure of Antonio Brown soon. According to speculations, the massive cash offered by the Indianapolis Colts to Ty Hilton and Dallas Cowboys to Dez Bryant did not escape the notice of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Brown. Bleacher Report reveals that the Pittsburgh Steelers star expressed his discontent over the 2012 contract he signed with the NFL team which was worth $41.96 million. At the moment, Brown has not provided specific details regarding his demand from the Pittsburgh Steelers. One thing is for certain though - the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver wants an upgrade.
