Default Ben has a lot of critics to silence this year.

The top three Ben Roethlisberger myths haters use to say he's not a good QB.

1) Last Year
2) "He had a great team built around him, he can't win by himself"
3) "He had crappy stats in the Super Bowl"

You know, I really can't wait for this year. Please, Ben. Shut everyone up.

He will shut them up, as long as he keeps turnovers to a minimum and stays healthy.

As long as the offensive line remembers how to pass-block,he should have an excellent season.

I agree.
This year will be hard for Ben because now he has a lot of people to answer to and to shut up. I think he'll be able to, but by no means is it going to be easy. The first time he has a bad game this season, the media is going to jump on the chance to bring up everything.

Thank you.......I always have felt that the Steelers Oline was great at run blocking and could dominate teams physically but were suspect in pass blocking....I know some of the sacks were Ben's fault as well....But even in 2005, our QBs were sacked over 30 times...Thats not horrible but thats far from great....When you look at teams like the Colts who hardly give up any sacks and I'm not buying its all Peyton Manning that the Colts never give up sacks....True his quick release helps out but the Colts have had a solid athletic pass blocking line....Hopefully the new blocking schemes the new OLine coach puts in helps our OLine in pass blocking. If the Oline improve then Ben will have a huge year....

I'm a member of other teams message boards....Its general opinion among them boards that Ben is washed up and never will be the same....I laugh my ass off reading that nonsense....Its amazing that Ben even played last year especially with the Oline giving up over 45 sacks.....When looking at last year the only problem was the INTs....After staring the year with 0 TDs and 7 INTs in his first three starts....Ben finished the year with 18 TDs and 16 INTs....Thats a plus two in the TD/INT ratio....Not great but far from being finished or washed up like alot of Ben haters think.....

Let me guess - they're probably amongst the same tools that bagged on Ben for being "lucky enough to be drafted into a great system where the running game and D do all the work," right? So which is it, is Ben a "has been" or a "never was?"

Win a minimum of ten games and half as many int's, that should silence most of the critics.

You guys should hear what these Browns fans say.

I always reply to them with: "I'd rather have a has-been Super Bowl Champion QB than a never-was-won't-win-anything QB."

the o-line was the root to all of our problems last season. it wasnt enough for ben to undergo 2 concusions(determining that the moto crash was a concusion) during the season he also had less time and comfort to throw the ball, bye bye alan faneca.s

Good guess Whats funny I joined a Cards board after Whisenhunt was named HC of the Cards...I still like Whisenhunt and wish him the best....So I will pay attention to the Cards more now....But what I found shocking was how bad some of those Cards fan hated Big Ben....Alot of fans on that site say it was Cowher's schemes and power running game that made Ben....lol Now after last year they think he is washed up...What I don't understand is why Cards fans would hate Ben so much? The Cards are in the NFC and are not a rival of the Steelers.....lol I guess they're just jealous of the 5 Lombardi's since their team has sucked for so long....

They all think Matt Leinart is a better QB....lol As a college QB there is no comparison hands down Matt was the better QB...But this is the NFL and Matt is only in his second year and must prove he is NFL material...He had a nice rookie year but so did Big Ben....Plus Ben had a solid 2nd year in which he played well in the play-offs for the most part (except for the Super Bowl)....Its just funny one bad year and a guy is washed up....
