He is the youngest Super Bowl-winning quarterback in NFL history and the second youngest quarterback to win two Super Bowls. He holds the NFL record for the highest passer rating in a single season by a rookie (98.1). Roethlisberger is also the only quarterback to ever register two perfect passing games in one regular season.
Troy Aumua Polamalu (born 1981) is another player to keep watching in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Troy played college football for the University of South California and earned All-American Honors for his exemplary performance. In the 2003 NFL draft, the Steelers drafted him, and he has since become an important member of the team. In fact, he was a member of the two Super Bowl Championship teams of the Steelers. He is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and a five-time All-Pro selection.
James Harrison Jr. (born 1978) is another player that should make you grab a Pittsburgh Steelers ticket for sale to get an opportunity to watch him play.

A four-time All-Pro selection, Harrison holds the Super Bowl record for longest interception (100 yards).
