The NFL Network continues to count down their annual Top 100 players of 2014 and Wednesday night it was revealed that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger finished 26th overall based on the voting that is supposedly done by his peers. Last season Roethlisberger finished 31st overall.
Roethlisberger, who has now appeared in the annual Top 100 list in each of the five years of its existence, threw for 4,952 yards and 32 touchdowns in 2014 while only throwing 9 interceptions. He also threw 12 touchdowns in back-to-back games (Weeks 8-9) in 2014, setting an NFL record for the most passing touchdowns in a two-game span in NFL history. Roethlisberger is also now one of 15 quarterbacks in NFL history to throw for 500 yards in a game and the only one to accomplish this feat twice.
It is really a traveshamockery to have him ranked outside of the top 20 this year after the season he put together in 2014 and especially when you consider that Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck will both finish ranked higher than him.
In case you missed it, here is the video that accompanied Roethlisberger’s ranking.
