If you’re starting a franchise and had to pick between Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, 31 years old, and Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, 24 years old, Wilson would be the pick among just about every general manager in the NFL because of the age factor.
But, after one season is Wilson already a better quarterback than Ben Roethlisberger?
On the NFL’s top 100 players list voted on by the players, Wilson was rated 10 spots ahead of Roethlisberger at No. 51, while Roethlisberger was rated No. 61, 12th among quarterbacks.
Last week at OTA’s Roethlisberger when asked about young QB’s said “one year does not mean a lot in this league.”
“People ask me all the time about these young quarterbacks. “Let’s wait. One year does not mean a lot in this league. Let’s see what happens in two, three years,” Roethlisberger said.
