Pittsburgh Steelers: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger was selected with the 11th pick of the 2004 NFL draft. Roethlisberger is one of the most successful quarterbacks currently playing in the NFL. Roethlisberger was named NFL Rookie of the Year in his first season and led the Steelers to the AFC Conference Championship game. In 2005 became the youngest Super Bowl-winning quarterback in NFL history and the first quarterback to play in two Conference Championships games in his first two seasons. Roethlisberger has since led the Steelers to two more Super Bowls, winning in 2008 and losing in 2010. He has been selected for the AFC Pro Bowl team on two occasions and holds the Steelers franchise record for most pass completions. Roethlisberger has been one of the most efficient passers in NFL history. He currently ranks 10th all-time in NFL passer rating (92.9), 5th in yards per attempt (8.06), and 11th in completion percentage (63.24%) among quarterbacks with a minimum of 1,500 career attempts. He has the fourth highest career winning percentage (.710) as a starter in the regular season among quarterbacks with a minimum of 100 starts.

Offensive Star: Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown forwent his final year of college to enter the 2010 NFL Draft, where he was picked up by the Steelers 195th overall in 6th round. It took him a couple of years to improve, but 2013 saw his best season yet. On December 22, 2013, Brown broke Yancey Thigpen's record of 1,398 receiving yards set in 1997. Brown also became only the second Steeler to amass at least 100 receptons in a season, joining former teamate Hines Ward. On December 29, he, along with Pierre Garçon of the Washington Redskins, tied Jimmy Smith as the only players to record at least five receptions in every single game of an NFL season in a win against the Browns, all while becoming the only receiver in NFL history to ever record five receptions for at least 50 yards in every single game of an NFL season. Brown's 2013 campaign has been regarded as, arguably, the greatest season in Steelers' history for a receiver. On December 27, 2013, Brown was selected for the Pro Bowl as a receiver and a punt returner.

Defensive Star: Troy Polamalu

Troy Polamalu was selected with the 16th pick of the 2003 NFL draft. Since his rookie season Polamalu has been one of the best safeties in the NFL. Polamalu is a two time Super Bowl winner and eight times Pro Bowl selection. In 2010, he was voted NFL Defensive Player of the Year as well as NFL Alumni Player of the Year. Polamalu is one of the most popular players in the NFL, with his jersey being the highest seller in the NFL in 2010. Polamalu suffered from a number of nagging injuries in 2011 and 2012 but he was still able to show case his big play ability. He is the clear leader of the Steelers defense that is the best in the NFL.

Head Coach: Mike Tomlin

Mike Tomlin is one of the youngest head coaches in the NFL. He began his NFL coaching career as a defensive backs coach for the Tampa Buccaneers. Tomlin stayed in that role for five seasons before being named as defensive coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings. He became just the 10th African-American head coach in NFL history when he was named head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2007. In 2008 he became the youngest Super Bowl winning head coach in NFL history. Despite having an ageing roster, Tomlin has gotten the most out of the Steelers squad and they will be tough to beat again in 2014.
