    Big Ben's Motivation? To surpass Terry Bradshaw's SB wins

    nfl_bigbents_200.jpg Ben Roethlisberger said in London on Tuesday that he is motivated by the chance to win more Super Bowl rings with the Pittsburgh Steelers than the four won by Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw.

    Roethlisberger was in London to promote the Steelers' Sept. 29 game against the Minnesota Vikings, which will be played at Wembley Stadium. The Steelers quarterback was asked by the London media what motivates him and his response was tweeted by Steelers public relations director Burt Lauten.

    What motivates @steelers QB @_BigBen7? "I want to pass Terry Bradshaw by getting more Super Bowl wins. That's our expectations in Pgh."

    Bradshaw emerged victorious in all his title-game appearances during his 14 seasons with the franchise. Roethlisberger has two rings in his nine seasons with the Steelers, losing in his last appearance as Pittsburgh fell to the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XLV.

    Roethlisberger, 31, needs three more Super Bowl wins to surpass Bradshaw, who became the first quarterback to win four Super Bowls.

    Roethlisberger broke Bradshaw's Steelers all-time passing yards record last season and finished the season with 29,844 yards in his career. He can own two more of Bradshaw's records this year: career pass attempts (needs 140 more) and touchdown passes (22 more).

    While in London, Roethlisberger participated in a fan forum and also visited some of the city's famous landmarks, including the Big Ben clock tower, with which he shares a nickname.

    Roethlisberger will travel to Ireland later this week to visit with Steelers chairman Dan Rooney, who is the former United States ambassador to the country. The quarterback will handle the coin toss at the flag football game Rooney annually hosts on July 4.

    "I got to go to the Ambassador's residence last year and see what he does there, but it will be great to go back," Roethlisberger told the team's website. "Plus we get to see the game he puts on for July 4 and I will make sure I do a good job flipping the coin."

    Great goal. I hope the fire still burns strong. Having a wife and child can re-order your priorities in a hurry.

    It has to gall Ben that we lost the game against the Packers. He'd be one ring from Terry right now...

    A Rams jersey, a *s jersey, a Jets jersey, a Seahawks cap... WTF?

    You know what's even sadder?

    Since Ben probably has about 7 seasons left I say he's got a shot at Bradshaw. Somehow i just feel he doesn't get enough credit for being as good as he is. Perhaps thats just me. Nailing down a third Lombardi and throw in a SBMVP would be extremely special.

    And a Chargers jersey too. But I'd be most concerned about the guy that looks like a serial killerover Ben's right shoulder.

    They should do a Where's Waldo type book and hide the guy in the Steelers bumble bee throw back. At least some of these fans like the Bee jerseys which is pretty cool. I've run into Steeler fans around the world, but I can't remember ever meeting one in the UK.
