Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback considers fellow play caller Tom Brady of the New England Patriots as the best in the business.

Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers considers Tom Brady of the New England Patriots as the best quarterback in the NFL

This was what NFL.com's Dan Hanzus wrote about on Oct. 29, quoting Roethlisberger, who made the declaration about Brady in an interview on KDKA-FM in Pittsburgh. 

"To me, he's the best quarterback in the league and he's done it for a long time. 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. 

"For the first how may weeks of the season he was playing with receivers that nobody had really ever heard of, so you've got to give him credit for getting his team to 6-2. He's got a great vision, he's got big arm strength, a great understanding of offense and defense." 

Along with Brady (three titles) and the New York Giants' Eli Manning (two), Roethlisberger (two) is one of the three active quarterbacks who have multiple Super Bowl championships. Brady won all three of his prior to 2004, and hasn't won anything since.

While Roethlisberger is all praises for Brady, the Patriots quarterback isn't exactly having his best NFL season. Through eight games this season, he has thrown for nine touchdowns and six interceptions.

Brady's current passer rating of 74.9 is also the lowest it's ever been in quite some time.   

Although he went 13-for-22 for 116 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' 27-17 win over the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 27, Brady was the subject of speculation when the team posted a photo of his middle and ring fingers taped up. 

He quickly shot these rumors down. 

"I didn't know anyone knows what the back of my right hand looks like, but it looks fine to me and it feels good. I'll be out there next week; you don't have to worry about that." 

This will be on Nov. 3, when Brady's Patriots (6-2) go up against Roethlisberger's Steelers (2-5) at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass.
