According to whom? Peter King ranked Ben 17th in the NFL. Not low enough? :rolleyes:

Ok guys/gals... I love Big Ben and what he has done for our team, but as a passer he is not Dan Marino or Joe Montana. I honestly think that if the Steelers get away from the running game then as a team the Steelers are gonna struggle. Ben has kind of struggled when the pressure was all on him. I hope that Ben proves me wrong, but with the rememberance of Tommy Maddox and Co. still scares me. Alot of Bens' success is gonna hinge on our O Line's success this season.

I didn't bother watching that video - it's one person's uneducated opinion that I have no interest in hearing. However, it isn't wrong nor is it unwise to take a wait and see approach with Ben, because let's face it - he has to prove that last season was a fluke due to his multiple injuries. He's going to have his detractors as a result, both within and outside of our fan base, and it's up to him to silence them.

And for those who are afraid of Ben passing the ball more and having more control over the offense, keep two things in mind:

1. When he was asked to throw the ball more in the 2005 playoffs, on the biggest stage of them all and with everything on the line, he excelled. So it isn't like he doesn't have a track record of success when the ball is put in his hands. Without his passing game, chances are the Steelers do not make it to SB XL.

2. This year's offense has been streamlined and revised to utilize Ben's strengths, which should translate into better numbers overall.

All that's left now is to see how it all plays out. Personally, I think Ben will have a solid season and hopefully shut everyone up once and for all.

Well, Ben is not Tommy Maddox, and I think he'll be fine, but as someone said before,
the OL has to protect him eficiently in order to Ben can do his job...

I would have to say no. EVery other player that he listed was black. This is just his opinion... which shows he is not racist, just blind!!

I have to agree - about all I ever hear outside of Steelers fans (and including a pretty good number of those as well) is that "he sucks." I'd like to know exactly who is overrating him.

If you notice, most of these naysayers who aren't Steelers fans are stuck with teams who haven't done squat, diddly do. The color green just doesn't become them.

I have to agree with CS here - its a real stretch stating that Ben is overrated. I pay no mind to what other fans think of and say about Ben - I pay attention to what he does on the field and I think I'm really going to enjoy seeing those omelette faces this season.

How is Big Ben overrated? Most NFL publications, "experts", opposing fans, and analysts place Ben in the middle to lower half of the spectrum of NFL QB's.

Most anti-Steeler fans use last year and SBXL only to guage Ben's future and overall talent as a QB. Even before that, he was still called a game manager. If anyone's overrated, look no further than Heli Manning.

Not to mention a certain soon-to-be federal inmate. For six years all I heard about him was that "next year will be his breakout year." Never happened.

This is what I hear about Ben all the time:

He's overrated, he's never done anything (yeah he never set a record for most wins in a row as a rookie, put up the highest completion percentage as a rookie, recorded the highest passer rating for a rookie, or became the youngest starting QB to ever win a Super Bowl).

He sucked in Super Bowl XL, so he's a sucky QB (how convienently they forget how well he played leading up to the Super Bowl).

Charlie Frye will win a Super Bowl before Ben does (can't even happen, Browns fans are all retards).

Definite case of reverse racism, though.

4 black guys in the top 5 and yet they still put Ben at No.1?

You could spend all day digging up sh*t like this from the net and getting angry about it.

I wouldn't go out and search for this guys weekly review but I'll listen to him when it's right there in my face. I have no problem with the dude speaking his mind. Someone said that it's just one mans uneducated opinion. That's probably true but you could stick that label on just about all of us. I haven't received any formal education in NFL forecasting, have any of you?

Ben isn't Joe Montana, he's not Tom Brady, he's not Troy Aikman but who knows, he may equal or even surpass what the aforementioned QB's have done. I'm happy to have him playing QB for my favorite team and that's all that matters to me.:banana:

I agree with Porter and Lewis, but he's way off with the other three. This isn't racism, it's just some guy sitting in his basement, why all the hate? In fact, why all the play?

How can you be overated when you were picked in the top of your draft class Your team goes 15-1 your first year and you win the superbowl your second. In your third year you cant play due to injury. What does he base this on. I dont want to dog this guy but did he watch the playoffs of 05. You cant be a sports show host and be biased towards a team or individual. You noticed he named Porter also.

People say Ben only wins because of the cast around him. This statement a huge double standard for all QB's to ever play the game.

Where would Peyton Manning be without Marvin Harrison or Reggie Wayne?

Where would Carson Palmer be without Rudi Johnson, and a trio of talented recievers to throw to? I'm putting special emphasis on this because Bengal fans are the first to point out that Ben is overrated because of the cast around him.

I wouldn't go nearly that far. I will agree that he has to prove himself after his bike crash and after having a horrible following season. IMO, he has a good bit to prove this season. Judging that we....oh I don't know...will be dishing out some nice cash to him after this season. But to state that he is overrated and that he is a "no talent bum" is going way too far.

BTW, you better run for the hills. The slightest of criticism towards "God" will not be put up with. Good luck.

How can you say he is overrated when most don't give him enough credit. They say his supporting cast got him through the playoffs and to a superbowl win please ask yourselves this do the Steelers go any where with Tommy Maddox that year. Hell no! He had a bad year last year you go through a windshield and see how well you do at work. I don't understand why Ben gets ripped the way he does and Vince Young is allready on his way to Canton. I guess I just don't get it.

And that's also true of any other quarterback in the NFL, including Manning and Brady. Remember what happened to Peyton during that playoff game when we were in his face all afternoon because his O-line protection broke down repeatedly? He said something afterwards about having "problems with protection", and was accused by the media of throwing his O-line under the bus.

ANY quarterback is only as good as his offensive line. True of Ben, true of all of them.

this thread is almost comical, really. who are these people? i have no idea.

the guy that says ben can't perform w/o a good oline , just look at his stats from 04 and 05 when he scambles out of the pocket. also you have to realize that last year was a gimme. if you don't realize that , then you aren't being reasonable.

now , if he repeats his performance of last year, then you can say what you want. just wait to say it please.

and also, if your own team is so lame that you got nothing to talk about, just watch baseball or something, don't waste our time.

Ben will have a chance to prove everybody wrong this season. he had an on and off season in 2006, at times looked brilliant (against Chiefs, Falcons, Panthers, 2nd Browns game) and other times awful (against Raiders, Broncos, 1st Browns games). as for being a bum, I can remember Favre and Peyton Manning having poor seasons in the past. It happens to every QB.

Lets just hope he does, cuz if he dont then we will get back fired for accusing everyone they are wrong when they were right about Ben not rebounding.

If you look at this whole thing from the leagues viewpoint, you can start to understand.

See, we should have won about 5 SB's in the last ten years. That would have put us at 9, and complete domination of the NFL since the merger. The league is very scared that we found the last piece!

(Nice bit of homerism, eh?)
