Yes Patrick Mahomes is in the conversion. And there’s no doubt Josh Allen has a rocket. But if we’re talking about the player that throws the best deep ball. There’s no doubt it’s Ben Roethlisberger. The reason why is because he throws the most catchable ball and he can do it more consistently than those other guys. The touch is there every single time. And nobody is as good at stretching the field. That’s a nightmare to deal with for defensive backs because the play gets behind them so quickly. There’s times when Roethlisberger throws a pass and you’re sitting there like “what the hell did I just see?” It jumps out at you and those are the plays that helped the Pittsburgh Steelers start off 2-0. Catching passes from Roethlisberger is a dream come true. Because those receivers know Big Ben can make some throws that no other quarterback can make.
