Give Ben some love
 
Go to NFL.com and vote for Ben as best NFL QB... Hes only has 9% of the vote.
I would agree he is proubably the 3rd or 4th best QB but I would like to see him hit at least 10% of the vote...

I don't get the Drew Brees thing.

Ben is simply the best quarterback for the situation he is in in the entire NFL. I don't know how well he would function elsewhere.

Kinda like Bradshaw and look how he did!

And I wouldn't trade Ben for any other QB in the league!

Well, he did come within 15 yards of breaking the single season passing yards record last season. Pretty impressive. Not to mention he's brought both San Diego and New Orleans out of irrelevancy.

about 14,000 yds (almost broke marino's single season record w/5000 last year) and 88 tds in the last 3 years alone.

always right around 65% comp and 95.0 passer rating.

i still take ben, but i think brees is slightly underrated and an afterthought when it comes to talking about the leagues best since he hasnt been to a superbowl.

beat me to it. he really doesnt have the stars he had in san diego either. i guess there is reggie bush, but brees turned colston into a recognizable name, and shockey was a flop. drew is that offense.

I totally agree with you on Brees. He's a pretty darned good QB, but really has nothing to show for his efforts that would put him in the "Best QB Category".

Though Ben has 2 rings and almost assuredly will have several more before he hangs up his cleats one day, I don't believe he has totally seen his potential yet and thus, hasn't reached his peak (which to us Steelers fans gets the blood pumpin' but to other teams, kind of scary). Because I believe he can reach the top plateau as the league's top QB one day very soon, I gave him my vote. :thumbsup:

Stats are for fantasy players. I want a real QB on my real team and his name is Ben.
