Steelers vs. Titans: Ben Roethlisberger could set franchise passing record

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Ben Roethlisberger could break Terry Bradshaw's franchise passing yards record on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans.

Ben Roethlisberger has a chance on Thursday night against the Tennessee Titans to supplant Terry Bradshaw as the Pittsburgh Steelers' all-time passing leader.

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.

However, the only record Roethlisberger is truly concerned about is how many championships he retires with.

"That's the most important," he said. "That's the only one I really care about. That's always been No. 1."
