Pocket Presence highlights two quarterbacks from the past and the present, and how their stats and abilities compare. John Elway and Ben Roethelisberger have played at a time where other quarterbacks have the publicity, but they are truly great in their own right. See how they stack up with one another.
Both of these quarterbacks, Elway and Roethlisberger were both 1st round selections, in the hope that they would bring some stability to the quarterback position and stability they did. While Elway’s legendary arm was his trademark, the ability to extend plays far beyond their intended time, was what carried Big Ben to his greatest achievements. Taking a look at their first ten years in the league, one cannot ignore the comparisons between the two:
First 10 Seasons
4th Quarter Comebacks
Game Winning Drives
Super Bowl Stats
Looking ahead, we all know that John Elway was able to cap his illustrious career with back-to-back Super Bowl wins, and the book on Big Ben has yet to meet its final chapter, but if you are looking to compare Montana to Brady, and Manning to Marino, Elway to Roethlisberger shouldn’t be far behind.
