Ben Roethlisberger could break Terry Bradshaw's franchise passing yards record on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans.
If Roethlisberger can amass 300 passing yards, he'll move past the four-time Super Bowl champion and become the franchise leader, breaking Bradshaw's mark of 27,989 yards.
The accomplishment isn't lost on Roethlisberger, who spoke about the milestone with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
"It's an awesome honor, you know?" Roethlisberger said after practice Tuesday. "Shoot, a storied franchise and he's The Guy, the face of this. I know there's a lot of '70s Steelers, but, when you're talking about quarterbacks and offense and stuff, he's the guy. To have an opportunity to break another record -- and this one is a pretty big one."
Roethlisberger has a great probability of shattering just about every Steelers passing mark before his career is over. Only 30 years old, Big Ben could have quite a few years left before hanging it up.
