Default Re: This Moron Says Big Ben is the #1 Overhyped Player In The League

I think he was wrong about Ben because he has not been in the league long enough, but he was right on in my opinion about Bret Farve the media acts like he is the best quarterback ever. Whenever something happens to him ( don't let it happen on a monday night) they magnify it like 10 times.

i didn't read the article but seeing that it says he is overhyped i kinda believe that, cause last season you couldn't even watch a sports show without them mentioning how great his record was and it got annoying sometimes cause he was getting most of the credit when it was the players around him that made him what he is and yet they got no credit what so ever. well at least that's the way it seems down here i'm sure there in PA everyone got credit. that's why i think he was overhyped but he is a very good qb

Follow the money...

First to be overhyped, you have to written about in lots of papers...

Second to be in papers you have to be "sell" worthy...

Last in order to be "sell" worthy, people have to be "buying" what is being written.

Seems like everyday more and more people are buying into Ben being a real deal QB. Doesn't seem like too much of a stretch being 18-2.

lol, he does that everytime you don't agree with him he's done it twice to me. i don't see how you can call him overrated, he gets the Ws and that's all that matters, and he always comes through in the clutch, he did it a lot last season and he did it monday. overhyped he might be but overrated he isn't

I dont wanna start anything but i also think hes overrated to an extent. I dont watch alot of the games since im nowhere near PA they dont show em alot. He has some amazing WR's to throw to and doesnt throw alot but still gets his yards. The reason i think hes overrated is cause of the Wr's they get alot of YAC but all i hear about is how great Ben is. I never hear about the WR's but everytime i see highlights they run a short route and break it long and its still all about how good Ben is. The talent of the WR's and how good they are at running their routes and getting open is what makes Roethlisburger good. They make it seem like him and Bettis are the only ones on the offense thats why i think hes overrated he gets to much of the credit for how good the WR's are. I mean i see he can manage the clock well, knows how to handle the pressure sorta and hes accurate on throwin short balls (havent really seen him go deep).
