Default Ben Roethlisberger: Over-Hyped Or Over-Judged?

Summary: Any NFL fan who paid any sort of attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers last season noticed that there were problems with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. He played out of character and seemingly unfocused.

Id like to see another QB go threw what Ben did, come back under weight, missed a ton of work out with his WRs, push back to soon and do better.

Over Judged... A healthy Big Ben this season will show that Cowher and company did wrong by Ben last season by pushing him back to soon, not to mention a medicore O Line who seemed to not be able to keep Ben off his back..

If Ben under performs again this year, then yes he will be over hyped but I expect the old Ben to be back. When he was healthy the offense clicked very well the last 8 games (except for the Ratbirds).

Over-judged as far as 2006 goes, but that's the nature of the QB position in the NFL. Too much credit (usually) when the team wins, too much blame (usually) when it loses. It's also why QBs get the biggest bucks of all.

2007 will tell us everything we need to know about Big Ben. Was 2006 just a fluky aberration? We'll see.

Ben has a lot of critics to silence this year.

I like Ben in this "he has a lot to prove." It seems when he does have a lot to prove, he usually proves everyone wrong!

Most definitely over-judged. Every NFL QB goes through a rough patch, but in Ben's case, because of all of the extenuating circumstances last season, his rough patch lasted a bit longer than most. He has had the off-season to reflect upon his shortcomings last season and get himself mentally (and emotionally) prepared for the coming season. I think we're not only going to see a "smarter" Ben, but a much stronger Ben.
