Ben Roethlisberger may have retired this year as an all time great, but the Steelers quarterback definitely has a somewhat troubling past.
The Steelers quarterback decided to call it quits this offseason after an illustrious 18 year career. Big Ben finished his career a two time Super Bowl champion, being one of the few quarterbacks in NFL history to have multiple rings.
He holds the records for most 500 yard passing games with 4, he’s tied with Peyton Manning for games with a perfect passer rating with 4, and he holds the record for the most completions in a game (regular or postseason) with 47.
Over his career, Roethlisberger has amassed 64,088 yards, ranking fifth all time, and has thrown 418 touchdowns, ranking eighth all time. He’s had a Hall of Fame career for sure.
Recent years may have tainted how good Big Ben used to be in his prime, but we shouldn’t forget those old days when remembering his legacy.
4 times in his career, Ben Roethlisberger had a perfect single game QB rating (158.3)
Here are highlights of all 4 of those games

Ben Roethlisberger and Donald Trump were involved in a mysterious situation with adult star Stormy Daniels
In 2006, Roethlisberger and Donald Trump got mixed up with Stormy Daniels which resulted in a very weird and intriguing situation.
Back then, Donald Trump and Stormy Daniels reportedly had a sexual affair which the adult star made public in a book she wrote titled Full Disclosure.
Apparently before the 2016 election, Stormy Daniels received $130,000 from Trump to keep quiet about the whole situation. Trump denied ever having a sexual affair with Daniels, but his lawyers did admit that there was a payment that went through.
After the sexual encounter, Daniels also revealed how Trump had Ben Roethlisberger escort her back to her room, and that’s where things got really weird. She replays the conversation as follows, per CNN:
It definitely is a wild situation, and it doesn’t hold well for Roethlisberger who was also accused of raping a woman before. Big Ben’s troubled past hangs like a dark cloud over his legacy.
