A nice read about Ben's drive to be a great one. http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/train...26id%3d2132437

I like a player who strives for the top and never gives up. Glad to have him as our QB!

Cocky or confident?? I`ll take both when it comes to a quarterback. Joe Namath predicted a superbowl victory, even though they were so heavily underdogged. And he delivered. Maybe its the Western P.A. air. Come from there or play there, just breathe in. And your thumping your chest ready to play some football.

I thought the most telling part was he wasn't just listening to the legends, he had plans of how he wanted to do things and asked them for their input. He isn't wanting to just let the system come to him, he is going after it to learn it better than anyone.

We definately scored a 10 when he grabbed Ben, he's got the attitude to make it..Now what we need to see is, how does he handle adversity in Pittsburgh when he has a bad game or things don't go well for a few weeks.

OK stop comparing Korky-dell to Ben. Kordell doesnt have the natural QB skills Ben does.

going undefeated in the regular seasonas a rookie and fending off the sophmore jinx questions = it's okay to say you are still aiming high. Crying on the sideline for getting benched for the third time in you career = better rethink those Canton dreams.
