Colts President Bill Polian Thinks Ben Roethlisberger Is as Good as Tom Brady, Peyton Manning There are NFL quarterbacks, and then there are NFL quarterbacks that people compare other NFL quarterbacks to. Peyton Manning and Tom Brady fall in the latter category.

But what category does Ben Roethlisberger fall in?

He’ll be facing off against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers on at Super Bowl XLV next Sunday night in Dallas, but is he really up there in the ranks with Manning and Brady? Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian thinks so, reports the Los Angeles Times.

“Bottom line, if you ask football people, they’re going to put Ben Roethlisberger up there with [Manning and Brady] almost unanimously,” Polian told the LA Times. “No one would leave him out. And others who have made the Pro Bowl, for example, wouldn’t even get consideration if you took a poll of all 32 general managers.”

Brady has three Super Bowl rings to Manning’s one, and Roethlisberger is trying to lead his Steelers to a third title since 2006.
