Default Re: Ben Roethlisberger is our John Elway

Let's also not forget that for years he had to survive in Dan Reeve's offensive philosophy. Run the ball and play defense. Then, when everything else fails, go out and win the game for us.....sound familiar?

Enter Mike Shanahan. The rest is history. Late in Elway's career, Shanahan stated he was the greatest qb he's been around, and wished he had had the chance to coach him much earlier in his career. He said he would have owned every qb record by the end of his career if he had played in his system his entire career.

Let's hope Todd Haley figures out a way to maximize Ben's abilities and he is given the weapons to help them become a devastating offense. Let's also hope that the organization is smart enough to understand that you only hurt your team when you try to force an offensive style of play when you don't have the talent to run it.
