These statistics include the 2008 season, and will be updated weekly during the season.

136.3 passer rating

I know that extrapolation is not statistically sound, but in this case think it offers a glimpse of something close to what we can expect from Ben after 12 years in the league.

2015 Outlook

3,058/4,825
63.4% completion
39,410 yards
285 TD
189 INT

Assuming such an extrapolation, Ben would rank among the greats in several categories.

Ben Roethlisberger's extrapolated career rakings


Between Dave Krieg (3,105) and Boomer Esiason (2,969) in pass completions
Between Jim Everett (4,923) and Jim Kelly (4,779) in pass attempts
Between Johnny Unitas (40,239) and Dave Krieg (38,147) in passing yards
Between Johnny Unitas (290) and Vinny Testaverde (275) in TD passes
Tied with Sonny Jurgensen (189) in INTs
Tied with Joe Montana (92.3) in passer rating

It is possible that Ben will have 40,000+ passing yards and 300+ TD passes by the end of the 2015 season! Looks like we found us one hell of a QB! :helmet:

Dang, where did all those INT's come from? He better cut back on that or we will keep running the ball.

5 years into the NFL, well 4 full season actually, but Ben is already well on his way to becoming the more prolific QB in team history no question. The man has a bright future in Pittsburgh and we're going to be witness to it.

Ben is a gunslinger, he improvs a lot and is going to have his share of INT's, just comes with the territory. Last year though he cut those numbers way down and is making very smart decisions which is great to see.

If Ben goes on to have a 286/189 career TD/INT ratio then I will be more then happy with that......That is a +97.....Not bad at all....

If Ben throws two TD passes in Philadelphia, then I expect CBS to show a graphic informing people that the second one was his 100th career TD pass. :banana:

I thought Ben had less than 16 int's his rookie year. Are you counting the playoffs as well?

He should own all the Steelers passing records shown, with the exception of most yards in a game. We would probably be in one hell of a shootout for him to be needed to throw for nearly 500 yards. And we our strong belief in ball control, run , and manage that clock, I don`t see the need for those shooutouts

You really don't get it do you?....Try to give you my researched list.....:lol: Ben has 87 career TD passes in the regular season...He is 13 away from 100....lol So know if Ben throws two TD passes Sunday CBs won't have a graphic....

Check any reference of stats and they never count a players play-off stats with their regular season stats....Didn't think it was that hard to understand?:lol:

Not that excluding the post-season from any QB's career makes any sense...

Thanks again for incredible insight....:lol: I suggest you add again anyway since you want to combine both regular season/post season stats...Ben is already at 100 which only his regular season stats he gets credit for officially ...But anyway Ben has 13 career post-season TDs....

Ben's rookie year he threw 3 TDs that post season.....The Super Bowl run he threw 7.....Of course 2006 the Steelers missed the play-offs....Last year the in the loss he threw another 3...Thats 13......

Just stop since you're getting owned...:lol:

Wow.....we all should fall to our knees and thank God above that he fell to number 11 in the 04 draft and we got him. I am so thrilled that he is our QB and we all get to be witness to what will hopefully be an amazing caeer in the Burgh.

Why the hell are you picking a fight with me? I already spent plenty of time adding up the numbers, so I'm not in the mood to revise them right now. If you're so damn insistent on the numbers being revised, then here (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/gamelog?playerId=5536); do it yourself! Now back off.

All I'm trying to say when a player is going after records then they only count his regular season stats....You look at the Steelers official records and they will have Ben at 87 TD passes since that is how many he has thrown in the regular season....Post season records are held separate......But I do stand corrected Ben only had 2 in the post season last year...Simple mistake....So with his 87 career regular season passing TDs and his 12 post season TDs he has 99....But then again when he hits 100 they will only count his regular season stats....

As for picking a fight?...I'm just debating....Whatever see you can't handle it...I understand since you were owned...:lol:

Am I the only one that thinks Bens INT's are a little high? What are Eli and Rivers numbers?

Ben had 11 INTs his rookie year during the regular season...He had 5 in the post season that year.....

Ben had 9 INTs in the regular season in 2005......He had 3 in the post season that year...

In 2006 Ben threw 23 INTs......Which he was coming off the motor cycle accident and a concussion he suffered against the Raiders.....No postseason that season...

Last year Ben threw 11 INTs in the regular season....3 in the play off loss to Jax.....


His INTs were a bit low his first two years but he also didn't throw a ton his first two seasons...He had 295 attempts his rookie year and 268 his second year....But still I think that was impressive for a young QB.....

Of course 2006 Ben led the NFL in INTs with 23....But he had a ton of physical and mental trauma to deal with that season...It was amazing he even played...

Last year Ben only threw 11 INT's and he also had over 400 pass attempts...I think that is real solid considereing he threw 32 TD passes in the regular season....So I don't think his INTs are that high......He does need to cut them down in the post season....He has 11 career post season in which that includes the Super Bowl......But Ben is also just entering his prime....So I think come play-off time this we will see a more wise Ben when it comes to his decesion making.....

What about those other 2 knuckleheads, Eli, and Rivers?

I hope so. What about those other 2 knuckleheads, Eli, and Rivers?

Eli has thrown 55 INTs the last three seasons.....17 in 2005, 18 in 2006, 20 in 2007.........I don't have his 2004 rookie numbers off hand and I don't want to look them up...lol But I think he threw 9 INTs his rookie year in limited action....He started in the second half of his rookie year in place of Kurt Warner...

Rivers didn't play much his first two seasons.....since Drew Brees was the starting QB for the Chargers...But 2006 was his first year as the starter and Rivers threw 9 INTs in 460 pass attempts.....In 2007 Rivers threw 15 INTs in 460 pass attempts..

I hope this helps some...:yellowthumb:

I dont blame a ton of the post season picks on Ben. I think its more the simple fact that we need to run the ball a little more and we need to avoid FORCING Ben to make all the plays. That is not our team. And its why the Pats owned us in 04. Granted, last year we didnt have Parker at the end so of course we were out, but Ben has to have support. Bottom line.

Ben isnt a guy who throws 45 times and we win. Its gotta be a balanced game.

the entire 2006 season was just a disaster; between Ben's accident & concussion & knee issues, Troy being hurt, the willie not running with any passion & fumbling on top of it, the OL just playing like crap, the pass rush being non-existant, etc. I wish we could just wipe away that years worth of stats because of most of them suck..LOL.

Ben constantly forced the ball, made poor decisions, took way too many sacks, and just generally was not right for most of the year. Like BG32 said, it's a wonder the guy could even play for that year.

Ben is steadily improving his stats and that's what we want, the guy is a gunslinger like we've talked about a million times. He's going to through INT's now and then, it's just how he plays. He's not afraid to take chances. He is making better decisions as was evident last year. I expect him to continue the improvement this season.
