Big fan of Pittsburgh football? Then check out this list of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Pittsburgh Steelers history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, QBs still need to know the intricacies of the rules for trick plays and tactics. Vigorous training is a must-- and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers.

In the 2017-18 NFL season, the current Pittsburgh Steelers starting QBs and backup QBs are Ben Roethlisberger, Landry Jones, Joshua Dobbs, and Bart Houston.

They're on this comprehensive list, along with all of the other sports stars who have had the honor of being the arm behind this beloved Illinois team.
