Aren't game winning drives what it's all about? Any team can keep it close, but having that player who can win the game is what makes them great.
Without Ben's 2008 Superbowl winning drive we would still be waiting for "one for the other hand".
Sadly it seems Ben may have lost his touch for the game winning drive. A few times this past season he had the ball in his hands, on the field for the winning score and threw a pick or had a failed drive. Hopefully he regains this magic and with a little help from the hurry-up offense once again becomes the last minute killer I know and love.
Isn't Elway Big Ben's Idol? The reason he wears number 7? Let's hope he's not satisfied with the same about of Superbowls.
