“You know me, I think the fans know me – the most important thing to me is wins and losses. To me, personal records are things you look back on when you’re done playing, and say, ‘Wow, that was pretty cool’. But like you said, to break the great Terry Bradshaw’s record…I don’t know exactly what year he he retired (he is told 1983 was his last year), but a record that’s held for 30 years, a record of one of the greatest quarterback’s of all time, and one of the greatest franchises of all time. To be able to break his records means a lot to me.
“I hope that Terry feels the same way, I hope it’s an honor to have someone who has played in one uniform and has played as long as I have. I hope it’s an honor for him to have the record broken. Records are meant to be broken. This past year Zack Dysert, the quarterback for Miami, who is now in Denver, broke some of my records. I texted him and told him ‘congratulations’. I just think it’s really neat that records get broken and by good people…I hate to break a record when we lose though – that kills me.” –Ben, when asked about breaking his own record for single-season completions as well as breaking Terry Bradshaw’s record for touchdowns.
More from KDKA-93.7 The Fan:
Ron Cook asked Roethlisberger if the offense’s recent success is putting to rest the speculation that Offensive Coordinator Todd Haley will not be back in 2014.
“I would think so,” Roethlisberger said. “The points we’re putting up, the production, I would think that that would be enough for people to be like, ‘Relax a little bit.’ and to see that our relationship is more than fine. We have a great relationship. We went to dinner last week. There’s no issues.”
Roethlisberger added that he doesn’t want to see any changes, although he knows there will be some because of free agency and rookies.
Cook asked Roethlisberger about his ability to stay healthyand take every snap through 14 games.
“You do have to get lucky. A great offensive line doesn’t hurt either, and I think that’s part of the reason that I’ve been able to (knock on wood) stay healthy is because I thought they’ve done a great job of protecting me this year,” he said.
Roethlisberger said that he is really looking forward to Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field, because he was injured and didn’t make the trip the last time the Steelers played there.
“The two places that I’ve never played are Seattle and Green Bay, so I am excited to go up there, all of the tradition and history,” Roethlisberger said. “The tradition, you walk in and you’re just going to feel the past players and all of those people that have played on that field. It’s going to be an awesome honor.”
