Eh, just his opinion. No big deal. The NFL is all about what have you done lately. Ben & the Steelers have not done squat in the last 24 games. Where as the Ravens are Super Bowl champs. All because of better coaching. And Flacco had the hot hand. Even if King Bolden bailed him out a lot in the playoffs.

Maybe it's my black and gold glasses impairing my vision, but Ben has taken some otherwise average teams and turned them into contenders. Flacco has largely hung on for the ride with some really good teams. I don't think there's any comparison.

Ben had an up and down year in 05 and had a helluva run leading up to XL so to me, that is a pretty fair comparison with Flacco's run. Although - I'd still argue Ben had the better athletic ability and executed efficiently in that run. There was no gimme pass that won them a game in the playoffs like Flacco had v. Broncos.

The other side will always bring up the refs in XL but I always battle that with their TE having butterfingers

You can carry your team. I've seen Ben do it. He has willed his way to winning drives and to putting up points on the board. We know how he does this. It's his trademark. And in the end, his style will be his undoing. But he achieved great success with it and that will be all that matters when he enters into the HOF.

If that was Ben they wouldn't even throw a penalty flag.

People who try to say he's not Brady , Manning , or Brees are correct he's not. He's Ben.
He doesn't read the defenses like those guys . But they don't make something out of nothing like he does.
Pressure up the middle , and the Qb darlings fold come playoff time. Ben may not be able to pull a rabbit out of his ass every time but he can deal with pressure in the pocket and has had to do it for the majority of the last 7-8 yrs.

All great Qbs , just different methods to their madness.

Considering the Ravens arguably only got past the Broncos thanks to a number of bullshit calls and no-calls from the refs (two specifically egregious examples come to mind immediately), and the sole reason for Flacco's passing success last year was Anquan being strong enough to yank the ball away from defenders, I'll take Ben 11 days out of 10 over Flacco.
