"Big" Ben Roethlisberger is the starting quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Standing 6'5" and weighing in at 241lbs, Big Ben is one of the largest quarter-backs in the league. Before the retirement of Brett Favre, Big Ben had the second deepest arm in the NFL. Now there's no one in the league that can throw as far as Big Ben. Ben also won two super bowls, however, he preformed poorly in one, and moderately in the other. Big Ben was the second quarter-back in NFL history to win the "NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year" award, he accomplished this in 2004. Since then there have been two other quarter-backs to win it.
