Ben Roethlisberger says he can’t name all Browns quarterbacks he’s faced
CLEVELAND– When asked if he could name all the Cleveland Browns quarterbacks he’s faced, Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger had to laugh.
“No chance,” Big Ben told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday. Roethlisberger, who was drafted by Pittsburgh in 2004 and has played in a majority of games each season, isn’t used to a revolving door of quarterbacks.
He was able to list a few past Browns QBs.
“Wow, well, you know a buddy of mine who was here, Bruce Gradkowski was over there. Goodness gracious, McCown and RGIII recently and Colt McCoy. There have been a whole bunch of them that I have faced. I would love to look at the numbers of which quarterback I actually played the most because I feel like it was almost a different one every time,” Roethlisberger said.
Gradkowski, who is now with Pittsburgh, played for Cleveland in 2008.
Roethlisberger missed Jeff Garcia, Charlie Frye, Derek Anderson, Brady Quinn, Seneca Wallace, Thaddeus Lewis, Brian Hoyer, Johnny Manziel and Austin Davis. Maybe more, but who’s counting?
Roethlisberger is 20-2 against the Browns, throwing for 35 touchdowns and more than 5,000 yards.
