This season sucked Offensively, that we ALL agree on, and if Ben was a 100% during those 9 games, well, it doesn't show it, and NO ONE is talkin' 'bout it.!
He threw 4 TDs in Oakland against no INTs, and that loss was the offense's fault? OK.
And PLENTY of people were talking about Roethlisberger at midseason regarding the MVP: http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2012/11/...halfway-point/
QB Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh – The Steelers seemed like just another team at the start of the season. The AFC North seemed to be in the pocket of the Baltimore Ravens and the Steelers looked like they were going to have a hard time holding off Cincinnati for second place. The Steelers had injuries at the running back position and the defense didn’t look good enough to get it done. But in the last few weeks, Roethlisberger has looked at all of those factors and has laughed. He has completed 200-of-298 passes for 2,203 yards with 16 TDs and 4 interceptions. When Roethlisberger can stay away from the picks, good things are going to happen for the Steelers. He remains the massive mountain in the pocket that he’s always been, but he’s avoiding the turnovers. Last year he threw 14 interceptions and he is playing much better football and his team is responding.
Like I said, keep playing revisionist history all you want. Without Ben lighting it up in the first half of the season, this team is looking at 2-14 right now as opposed to 7-9/8-8.
