I think the site is pretty accurate. I mean, 13th still isnt that bad....Im usually in a 14 man league, which means someone would be starting roethlisberger if we went by that. Like people said though, you cant just assume that we're gonna start throwing 40 times a game because of the playoffs. A loss to Bettis doesnt change the way we will run our offense...he was only important when we got it within the 10. If anything Ben's stock went down with the loss of randle el in the slot.

I see it as a good thing. Because Ben has said before that it motivates him. And that he is always having to prove someone wrong. So I say we should emrasse that and not give him any respect at all and let him always think he has to prove himself to us! You know like reverse psychology!!!

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

*Sigh* The ranking is not a slap in the face of Ben Roethlisberger as you would like to make it out to be...it's simply a well-founded prediction. Ben isn't going to throw as many passes as some other QB's and hence gets as many stats not because of his ability but because of the system he's playing in.

That list is horrible. The top 3 are simple but Warner, Plummer, Culpepper, McNabb, Bulger, Bledsoe, Trent Green?

None of them have won ANYTHING. McNabb? He's the biggest choker out there.

All im saying is that reverse psychology seems to work on the guy.

CantStop85 hit the nail on the head. In fantasy football, these QBs have put up better numbers than Ben. They get to throw the ball more often, which means more yardage and more passing TDs. It has nothing to do with winning. And McNabb and Culpepper get some rushing TDs as well and usually are the firsf QBs taken. Your not going to see Ben air it out for 300 plus yards each game.

He should at least be in the top ten.
Not in Fantasy Football....I wouldn't draft him except for a backup QB. No one who knows anything about fantasy football would either until the Steelers show that the offense has changed froma primarily running based offense. Not that he's bad, but Bulger, Bledsoe and Warner are all in passing based offenses.

Why would you pick a QB that only gets to throw 15 times a game?

It has nothing to do with his ability or the team's win/loss record. Think people.
