I really want to go to Hawaii...seriously, do you know how cold it gets in Pittsburgh in February? Sincerely, Ben Roethlisberger." Cute.

And besides, he can play golf with Bettis and his buddies among the palm trees during Pro Bowl week!

We really need to get the fan vote out for Ben this year. His season definitely merits a Pro Bowl selection.
i think i heard that.. he goes my name is the longest one..lol

Last night, I witnessed a quarterback who has a lot of familiarity with and confidence in his receivers. It used to be "Throw it to Heinz or Heath, and they will catch for sure" and no confidence in the rest of the receiving corps. This year, he still looks at Heinz and Heath for the surefire check downs and TD, but he has a TON of confidence in the rest of the corps and has no problem throwing to them.

One comment that I heard from the jerks on ESPN last night that I do agree with is that he needs to get better at reading his second and third option more quickly and seeing the whole field. Sometimes, it is as though he comes out and has only a laser eye on the designed receiver who is covered when others are wide open. My opinion is that if he improves that area, he will will be a premier QB for years to come. I definitely see some Brett Favre in him (only most of the time with better decision-making skills)... He is a PLAYMAKER!!!

Its called Ben is working his ass off. He is becoming a franchise QB who takes everyday very serious. He studies film, and stays at practice longer than he should just to get extra work.

He is amazing and im so proud of him for carrying his team, and i feel confident of a post-season win because of him maturness and experience in the playoffs.

Its simple.... Ben is back!

I saw someone resurrected the "Big Ben Godsend" banner last night.....

Did you hear one of the announcer say last night, don't know which one..it was crazy loud at the bar) that Ben was entering into "Brady Territory"?? (gasp!) If Ben hadn't of gotten hurt and threw one more TD.......they would have to choke out that Brady was entering Roethlisberger Territory!

I know I was hoping for one more TD pass because then Brady wouldn't be leading in something.

I knew Ben would be back and I never doubted him. Ben is a great playmaker and IMO Ben's greater than Brady and Manning because neither of them had the first 4 years that Ben had.

Just look at my sig-Big Ben is back
