Obviously not, T. Didn't you know? We can replace Ben with a 6th round rookie like we did with Larry Foote. Or maybe a 7th rounder like we did with Max Starks. Ben's just a placeholder.

If it goes by rings only then max Starks Larry foote and other should be in. The way Eli keeps missing the playoffs he could find himself not in also

It just sucks that that the investment in the offense is now being negated by a decline in the defense.

Probowl: a "false flag football" game played somewhere over the rainbow. If I were Ben I would not want to get 100 miles of that god-forsaken game.

Brett Keisel looks a lot like BB.

If he started at QB... we probably wouldn't even notice a difference.

You know, I could start breaking down numbers and stats, explaining the talent level around him, his offensive line play, the running game, etc...But I know I would be wasting my time with the haters.

I'll just enjoy the fact that he's our QB, while the people on earth in Steelers Nation yearn for the 1 to 15 quarterbacks currently in the world they believe are better.

Listening to people not knowing how lucky they are as a fan is maybe the most frustrating and laughable thing I could think of as a Steeler fan.

Here's to the fans that wish Tony Romo was our quarterback!

Ben will always be snubbed. Quite frankly, that's the way he and everyone here should like it. Ben's a BAD MOTHER FUCKER with a chip on his shoulder. Lets keep it that way. If that sorry ass N.E team can make it to the Title game, then there shouldn't be any doubt that Ben can get us there with this team, too.

while I agree on them in v. Ben in - got to consider the time they played the QB position and the very young history of the HOF at the time
