Ben is not elite and is in the 2nd tier qb section with guys likes Eli Manning and Joe Flacco.

Elite QBs dont always mean you are going to win it all. Its a team sport. And you need some luck to win titles, ALOT of luck. I mean, the luck involved in winning is so big, that a helmet catch and a routine 3rd down drop late in the 4th quarter last Feb cost Brady from being a 5 time super bowl winner. That's how one little play can change the course of history.

Manning, Brady, Brees and Rodgers: Elite Qbs in the NFL. Everyone else is below. I think I have said this a few times in other posts, this is the last time im writing it.
Even if we accept everything you say as absolute truth. If a QB that you state is "elite", is not as good as QB's you say are not "elite" in the playoffs or when it matters most, then WTF are you talking about. If Manning is the greatest QB ever, but not as good as Ben under pressure....How good is Manning really? Rodgers is great. He had 96 yards passing in the first half yesterday, and 50 of them came on a jump ball that ended up bouncing into the hands of his receiver. He got most of his yards at garbage time in the game, and still only threw for 256 yards. Does he suck too? So much of this is subjective, I know, but come on.

Oh, and why don't you ask any Raven player to tell you candidly whether they would rather have Flacco or Ben as thier quarterback. You've heard Raven's players marvel at Ben in the past, and also know the record when Ben does or doesn't play. If you believe Flacco is as good as him, that's your opinion. I think if you asked most people in this league, they would overwhelmingly take Ben.

I was agreeing with your post (that it's asinine to say that BB wasn't great in XLIII).

Explaining the joke... ruins it a tad. Oh well.

Sorry, I'm a little slow today. I thought that's where you were going, but I'm a little punchy and defensive from taking all the hits for Ben! I may also have a concussion.

I still wouldn't say defenses are irrelevant, and neither is a good running game. But you'll have to be able to put up big points to get through the playoffs anymore.

I wonder what Steelers' management is thinking after watching this weekend of playoff games?

"Hey, maybe we should actually get some skill positions for offense and try to score some points next season."

Or......

"We're the Steelers! Our way is always right! Ball control and defense is enough!"

They're probably thinking:

"Why can't our skill positions play like that!?!"

Mike Wallace "could" be Torrey Smith. AB "could" be Wes Weller. Spinny, Dwyer, & Reggie Noble "could" be just as good as Ronnie Hillman, Stephan Ridley, and Shane Vareen.

Steelers management thinks scared. They're probably wondering what's under the bed when they go to sleep at night.
