Re: All these ditch Ben threads
Ben is likely the 5th or 6th best QB in the league. He's not P. Manning, Brady, Rodgers, or Brees. But he's in the next tier. I'd put him 5th and Eli 6th. Eli had a bad year. Ben had a good year with a bad end of season.
Rivers used to be 7, but not any longer.
The next tier is Romo, Ryan, and with the 3 rookies all looking good maybe they will take over. But until they do it for 3 or 4 years in a row, they can wait their turn to get in the top 5. Cam Newton looked great last year, not so much this year. Ben has been a top 5 QB for most of his 9 seasons.
Lastly, he doesn't get a pass this year for us missing the playoffs. He sucked at the end of season and cost us a game or 2 that he used to find a way to win. He'll be back strong next year, I'm sure.
