OK wutchy listen up because this is important.

Troy and Ben are what we call "generational" talents. They're the kind of players that come along once in a generation. There has never been a more disruptive, intelligent or influential DB than Polamalu. He brings Elite with him - not just as an individual - but to the team he plays on. And Ben is probably the most clutch QB in history. More than that - he is another team player. Not a gaudy stats passer, but someone who will get the dirty job done for his team.

You cannot replace these people, k? There are no "equivalents" or "alternatives" for them out there. It doesn't matter that they're getting old. You can't replace them. It's as simple as that. So you just ride them and make sure they never leave until they get too old to play any more. And then you sigh, and say "wasn't it great when we used to watch Ben and Troy".

Why I wouldn't trade Ben for Vince Young:
Ben is a 2-time (soon to be 3-time) Super Bowl champion. Vince Young sucks.

Debate over.
And two-time super bowl champ Ben sucks in super bowls and most sundays. You need to finish drives and put more than 10 points on the board. The defense wins games week after week, not Ben.

I'd take Julio Jones or Prince Amukumara if Ingram is gone. Ingram could be a third down back or a return man extroidanaire.
I'm sorry, I already used up my daily allotment of responses to ridiculous posts for the day.

Please check back tomorrow.

Yeah except, shake off defenders, win, show poise, be able to work through adversity gracefully, win, work well behind a shaky O-line, win, come through in the clutch over and over, win, lead his team to multiple Super Bowls, have his teammates faith and did I say WIN?

Consider the source. This is the same dope that swore Santonio Holmes would light us up and score at LEAST 2 touchdowns in the AFC Championship Game.

Once again, crack kills.

I'm not even going to take the time out of my day to point out all of the flaws in this concept.
