It began with a favorite discussion among Steelers fans and among football junkies in general: Bradshaw vs. Roethlisberger. Bradshaw has more Super Bowls with four and the nostalgia of those legendary '70s teams attached. Roethlisberger has the sheer numbers and two Super Bowls of his own.

To Bradshaw, the numbers win out in the conversation.

“I would give it to Ben,” Bradshaw said. “His numbers far exceed mine. I may have more Super Bowls, but he is a much better quarterback. I wasn’t bad in my era but he is a big, strong, accurate [quarterback and] puts up monstrous numbers and he’s won two Super Bowls. I pass that baton on to him gladly. I absolutely have no problem with that. He deserves it.”
