7 Pittsburgh Steelers with a chance at making the Hall of Fame
Ben Roethlisberger: 100% chance
By the time Ben Roethlisberger’s career is finished, he could be closing in on 20 years in the league. Currently, Big Ben is entering his 17th sesaon in the NFL, and his accomplishments have been thoroughly impressed.
In addition to his 144-71-1 record as a starter for the Steelers, Roethlisberger also has three Super Bowl appearances and two Super Bowl rings – something only one other current NFL quarterback can boast.
He’s also currently 8th all-time in passing yards. Just ahead of him on the list are his 2004 draftmates, Philip Rivers and Eli Manning. If he can outlast them, Roethlisberger could shoot up past Dan Marino to become 5th all-time in passing.
Remarkably, despite his long list of accomplishments, Roethlisberger has never made a first-team All-Pro in his 16-year NFL career, and his 6 Pro Bowls are a bit underwhelming considering he’s going to be a first-ballot Hall of Famer one day. Still, this honor is something that was never really in question. No matter what happens in the final years of his career, Ben Roethlisberger will be in the Hall of Fame.
