Roethlisberger, Rivers, and Manning have all been voted to the Pro Bowl since becoming starters.

He appeared in his third Super Bowl in Super Bowl XLV, but the team would fall by a score of 31-25 to the Green Bay Packers.
Roethlisberger and Manning have each won two Super Bowls.
The trio have been compared favorably to the Quarterback class of 1983, which included Hall of Fame quarterbacks Dan Marino, John Elway, and Jim Kelly.
