Default Re: Ben Roethlisberger is our John Elway

coincidentally, John Elway ended an argument he had with Peyton Manning over who was the better Broncos QB. Elway pointed out that he was Denver's Ben Roethlisberger. Then he smacked Peyton in his giant thumb-shaped head.

If 2013 is Peyton's last year do you guys think there is a chance that we could trade Ben for Elway and a 1st round pick in 2014?

I think Denver would take that deal in a heartbeat.

Yeah right ! The steelers couldnt be that lucky ! The broncos beat the steelers with TEBOW ! Ben threw a pick to end the opener in denver, just like he ended the season throwing a pick in the cincy game. they wouldnt touch ben with a ten foot pole !

Let's put Manning's damaged neck behind our offensive line and see how long his career lasts. By the way, we always beat the Ravens with Ben in the playoffs. Manning couldn't do it with home field advantage at a mile above sea level. Oh yeah, Manning ended their season with a pick deep in their own territory. Nice try. Wanna play some more?

That's not quite accurate. Like the Steelers tried to do with Ben in 2012, Reeves made Elway the #2 option and tried to run into a brick wall for the majority of the game. They had the whole "we have to establish balance blah blah blah" mantra. When that didn't work and there was less then 2 minutes in the game, "JOHN HELP!"

Eventually, instead of hoping Elway could put on the superman cape and bail the team out in the last two minutes, the Broncos started to use him earlier and more often in the game. Maybe the Steelers will catch on someday and play modern football.

That's not quite accurate.

Terrell Davis ran 392 and 369 times in the 97 and 98 regular season. TD ran 27 times per game in the postseasons when Elway finally won his championships. That would equate to 432 carries over a regular season which would be an NFL record. The Broncos won those championships because TD ran his ass off. Put that man in the Hall of Fame!

It was a lot more like "Terrell help!"

Without TD Elway is ringless. Period.
