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 ...

It's hip to T-Squared ...
Just think what the Steelers top five could have looked like if they wouldn't have cut Unitas and would have drafted Marino.
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!
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!
"Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward
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.
