I've tried to get involved with the discussion but some of you guys are bitter and defensive.

I've said more than a few times that Ben has been one of the best QB's in the league and the steelers are one of most storied and respected franchises to exist. Once I make that perfectly clear and give what is a contrarian view people begin to personally insult me. I haven't done anything that warrants such a vitriolic and hostile response.
Stopped reading right there. That's all you've been doing and like I said, it makes no sense to brag about a sb win on a steelers board, no matter the reason. None.

I'd stop giving this guy your time. He's not on here to post anything constructive or to add to the conversation, he's just here to stir shit up.

And my reply was sarcastic. You've just admitted you didn't realize that. That post where I named all of Baltimore and Indy's championships was SARCASTIC. Go back and read it. Do we really need to argue about this? Oh, and bolding half my sentence to just read as me making fun of you is wrong. I was making fun of what you SAID. Not you. It's not personal.

And what are you adding, exactly? You here to talk football or just focus on me? Quit being so defensive, I'm a really nice guy.

Yeah I know he is, but I'm sitting here reading on the last 10 minutes of my lunch just killing time, so he's not taking any of it up. Imagine that, a ravens fan trying to stir up shit on a steelers board. That's such a rarity, lol.

So, how about we get back on topic? Wasn't this thread about how anybody who questions Ben is an idiot? I'd rather read about the topic of this thread and peoples' opinion as to whether or not it is idiotic to question Ben than to continue to get into pissing matches with a Ravens fan.

Thank you. I wouldn't question Ben at all. He is a savvy veteran and one of the toughest QBs in the league. It is too bad he was injured for both of the games vs the Ravens last season and I look forward to seeing him against us next season. That being said, the Steelers need to start looking at the draft in the next two season to find a QB to sit behind him for a year or two to develop. Ben won't be able to continue to perform at a high level with the injuries his body has been playing through. His o-line has let him down for awhile now and if it isn't fixed this coming season things could get ugly quick.

The name of the thread, calling people idiots who disagree with the OP, isn't a great way to promote healthy discussion imo. I actually agree that people would be "out to lunch" if they think Ben isn't the answer anymore but to call them idiots before they give their view isn't good.

It's not that people question Ben, it's that eventually ever thread turns into a Ben sucks thread or people feel the need to start a dozen new ones.
