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.
Winning games is what is all about. I think Steeler Nation would enjoy a few Sundays next year with a solid lead in the 4th quarter. Vinny Testaverde is 7th all-time in 4th QTR comebacks but I don't think many people would have him rated as the 7th best quarterback.

Ben had to throw a Superbowl touchdown sooner or later it's just part of the game. Hard to imagine a player of his caliber being shut out in back to back Superbowls. He just squeaked in under the wire.

Let's hope the Steelers draft the next Terrell Davis in round 6 this year.
