    As far as measurables, Neil O'Donnell was the 3rd best QB in Steelers history. O'Donnell has the lowest INT% in modern Steelers history and was a very accurate passer. He hit the deep throws consistently. His Passing Yards/Game is 2nd in team history (Kordell's Passing Yards/Game is a sad sorry matter).

    O'Donnell scores as a better passer than Stewart virtually across the spectrum of measurables.

    Kordell obviously had the intangible ability to run with the football. But that neck meat pimple was just plain nasty!

    If O'Donnell hadn't blown the Super Bowl in 1995, we'd be talking about him as a Steelers hero! He was the best post-Bradshaw QB we fielded ... until Big Ben re-wrote the script of being a Steelers QB ...

    Just think what the Steelers top five could have looked like if they wouldn't have cut Unitas and would have drafted Marino.

    Unitas
    Bradshaw
    Marino
    Stewart
    Roethlisberger

    not to shabby

    roethlisberger is better than bradshaw by far.

    defense led the steelers first 4 rings.

    roethlisberger led the last one.

    Anyone outside the Steelers think Bradshaw was average but clutch.

    Roethlisberger is by far above average and also clutch.

    Until Ben has 4 rings, Bradshaw is king!

    i will say i think ben is better than bradshaw by a wide margin, but bradshaw was no sloutch. he was the kind of prospect that scouts and fans ooooo'd and ahhhhh'd over coming out of school. What stafford, newton, luck are today is what bradshaw was back then

    Defense didn't lead to all 4 rings. Might want to check again. O lead to the last two of that era.

    hard to compare bradshaw and ben...2 different eras! one thing for sure, as clutch as ben is, bradshaw was a big game player!


    ...couldn't agree more with ya lake on o'donnell.

    1) bradshaw...for now
    2) ben...close behind though
    3) o'donnell...far FAR from 2nd!

    Where does old Mike T-Zak fit in, #5 or 6? I remember a game where he drug an opposing playing by the face mask and I remember saying, yep, that's a Steeler QB right there.
