The Steelers are winners of seven straight but now that the playoffs are here everyone resets back to zero.

Ben Roethlisberger loves a good sports talk-radio show apparently. On Wednesday morning he was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show and Patrick jumped in the way-back machine to share with Ben his draft card stats.

Here’s Ben Roethlisberger’s full interview.
The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the 15 finalists for the Class of 2017 on Tuesday night. While unfortunately Hines Ward didn’t make it passed the semi-finals in his first year of eligibility a different former Steelers player has a chance for enshrinement this summer.
Teresa Varley has the details about guard Alan Faneca’s second time making it to the finalist round. Faneca was the team’s No. 1 draft pick in 1998 and played 10 seasons in Pittsburgh, 13 total in the NFL. He was a member of the Super Bowl XL-winning team. Good luck Faneca!

The hallway he’s talking about is the one at Steeler headquarters where the six Lombardi trophies are kept.
