Brad v. Ben; A look at their first eight years, Part Two
This is Part Two in my comparison of Pittsburgh Steelers’ Quarterbacks Terry Bradshaw and Ben Roethlisberger through the first eight seasons of their respective careers. Be sure to check out Part One which covered their playoff and Super Bowl numbers.
In Part Two, I’m looking at not just the the regular season numbers for the two stars but also the intangibles as I did in Part One. Intangibles for me are defined as offensive style, the coaches, key players around them, etc.
As I turn to the numbers, remember that Bradshaw played the majority of his seasons in a 14-game schedule versus the 16-games schedule that Roethlisberger plays in today. While not huge, the 2-game per season difference does add up over time.
Attempts/Completions – 2,019/1,008
Completion Percentage – 49.9%
Touchdowns – 93
Interceptions – 118
Average Yards per Completion – 12.9
Win/Loss Record – 57 Wins 30 Losses
