Default By Scouts Inc. ESPN: "Big Ben the NFL's heir apparent to Brady and Manning"

Nice Article about Ben coming out on top over the other notables like Romo and Eli. If you click the link...theres more analysis as to why Ben is #1....or #3....but we all know who's truly the best






"Tom Brady is out for the season with a knee injury, and Peyton Manning is not himself after missing the entire preseason with a knee problem of his own. So with the NFL's top two quarterbacks on the mend, which young signal-callers are poised to step into the void and take their games to the next level?

Scouts Inc.'s pro scouts debated that topic. They considered possibilities such as Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, Cleveland's Derek Anderson and Buffalo's Trent Edwards. But the finalists had stronger résumés.

Our experts whittled the list down to five names: Denver's Jay Cutler, New York's Eli Manning, San Diego's Philip Rivers, Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger and Dallas' Tony Romo. From there, they sat down at the Scouts Inc. roundtable and took a vote on the best quarterback in that group.

Manning and Roethlisberger won points with their Super Bowl rings, Cutler and Romo were lauded for their physical skills and Rivers got credit for playing in last season's AFC championship game with a torn ACL. All have been impressive through the first two weeks of this season. Each scout ranked the list from 1 to 5 -- with five points awarded for a first-place vote, four for second, three for third, two for fourth and one for fifth -- and in the end, Big Ben's combination of size, arm strength, leadership skills and other intangibles gave him the slight edge over Eli Manning."

F**K ESPN!!!! All of a sudden, because Tom Brady is injured and Peyton is "not himself" (which I don't happen to agree with) they want to jump on Bens bandwagon??? HELL NO!!! KEEP YOUR SORRY ASSES IN NEW ENGLAND WITH THE REST OF THE POSERS!!!!

Props to Ben. Though I am slightly irritated that they feel Ben only has a "slight edge" over Manning.

I liked what Jeremy Green said, in picking Ben over Eli:

I love the command Roethlisberger has over his offense. He's a leader on the field and a respected voice in the locker room. He's smart, mobile enough, has great size and a solid arm and shows excellent creativity and the ability to make all the throws. Total package. Roethlisberger is a winner whom any team could build around.

Even if I wasn't a Steelers fan, I'd want Big Ben for my qb

I'm more than slightly irritated, Manning stinks the place up until he was 3 or 4 good games. Ben does it from the 1st year, with one off year because he almost get kill and a couple months later has a major operation. I'm surprise some of these idiots can spell the word football.
I don't know how, but I'm sure Pantywaist Goodell had something to do with this.

I agree, Big Ben is much better than Manning. But we all know how bandwagon reporters are. As far as ALL NFL QB's go, Ben is all-around better than any of them. He is super-tough and can play hurt, tired, in the mud, however it happens. One of the reasons he's my favorite QB is because he's so under-rated. Go Ben!
