Ben had a Romo-like season. That's for sure. However, get back to us when Romo wins a super bowl. For that matter, get back to us when Brady wins another. I mean, how looooong has it been???

The problem with putting Ben in that upper echelon is that when you watch these other guys, they rack up points like a video game, while we frequently squeak in our first FG right before halftime and finish with 13 points. Elite QBs find ways to move their team down the field and score points. Ben's claim to fame the past few years (in the absence of this) has been his clutch play when it mattered the most... well, that's been absent too the past couple of years.
