Despite the struggles of  New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady this season, Pittsburgh Steelers’ quarterback Ben Roethlisberger had high praise for the Patriots’ signal-caller.

“To me, he’s the best quarterback in the league and he’s done it for a long time,” Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said on 93.7 The Fan during his weekly radio show via Scott Brown of

“That’s no disrespect to some of these other guys that are doing some amazing things in the NFL right now. But to me, it’s about wins and championships — and he’s got more championships than anybody.”

Brady, who threw for a record 50 touchdowns in 2007, is having one of the worst seasons of his career. Brady has completed 171 of 307 passes for 1,824 yards with just nine touchdowns and six interceptions.

Despite the struggles, Brady has still guided the Patriots to a 6-2 record and they could be in line to earn a bye in the postseason.

That’s more than the struggling Roethlisberger can say.

Not only has Roethlisberger passed for just eight touchdowns and seven interceptions, but the Steelers are just 2-5 and look destined to miss the playoffs for the second straight season.

Brady’s Patriots will host Roethlisberger’s Steelers at 4:25 pm EST Sunday.

    I think Ben R. Is a fine QB, just having a kind of a bummer of a season so far. Stuff happens and most QB’s have a tough
    Time every now and then, sometimes it’s the team as a whole, sometimes its individual key players but they’ll come
    Back and they’ll be a threat again.
    I’m a Patriot fan but admire all good QB’s.
