Not only that, but a quarterback who has repeatedly shown that he deserves to go to the Pro Bowl. Have you voted yet? Vote often - he deserves to be there every bit as much as Brady and Manning.
Like it was yesterday, I remember jumping up and down in front of my TV, screaming in delighted disbelief on Draft Day 2004 when Ben was still available at no. 11. I predicted on the spot to my husband that inside of five years, we'd be playing in a Super Bowl. I followed his career at Miami (OH) and I never doubted that Ben could be exactly this kind of game-changing, league leading quarterback.
Every week, he makes the anomaly of the 2006 season more and more a distant memory. And how about the love from Boomer on CBS - he actually called Ben the second best quarterback in the league, ABOVE PEYTON MANNING. Did you ever think you'd hear that from any network analyst????????
