Next excuse that puts the blame on everyone but Ben please.
Wow, really? Haven't these discussions been held before on this forum? Those stats are meaningless. Bubble screens and check downs count as throws too.
Those teams use a lot of no huddle and actually put an emphasis on scoring. The Steelers play Marty ball and put the emphasis on time of possession. So Ben technically may throw as much as Manning or Brady, but usually for small gains, or negative yardage as the Steelers stink with bubble screens. The Steelers don't attack, they just play scared and hope nothing goes wrong.

I thought you said guys like Brees, Rodgers and Manning were the best of the best? If Brees was that good then should it matter where his defense ranks? The truth, regardless of numbers, Ben has come through more often than Brees.
