Tom Brady vs. Ben Roethlisberger.

It’s interesting that big games are always dubbed as QB vs. QB. Quarterbacks on opposing teams are never on the field at the same time. One doesn’t game-plan for the other, and nothing one player does will have any effect–except maybe psychological–on how the other plays.

Nevertheless, these comparisons are always made, especially when you have a pair of future Hall of Famers, as you most likely do with Brady and Big Ben during Sunday night’s AFC Championship between the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers.
