Default Ben appreciation thread

Can we just for one moment appreciate the man we have under center. We should appreciate that Tommy Maddox, Kordel Stewart or Kent Graham is no longer on the team. Appreciate that the youngest QB to ever win a Super Bowl is on our side. Further more, appreciate the fact that Ben is the only Quarterback to ever win 50 games in his first 5 years. We should also appreciate the fact that Ben can look like Elway when we need him to. We should also appreciate that Ben can turn it up in the 4th quarter and make plays when he has to.
This complaining about him is getting old. Ben is our QB for better or for worse and as we get ready to make a run at the playoffs, I think its time that fans stop complaing and appreciate the guy under Center.

He's ready, Steelers fans. His ordeal over, his return will be complete come Saturday in Arizona, when football again becomes the focus and a career briefly interrupted resumes.

Believe me I agree with you 100%, but if we are going to call out people for all the posts where Ben is blasted, then a post like this just open up a can of worms. Not coming down on you just know how this will go from the past. I think Ben is the greatest thing to happen to Steeler football since the 70's, but a thread like this after a four turnover game is bound to bring grief.

We are appreciating Bens body of work thus far in his career not just one bad (okay horrible) game.

Wait.......wait for it.......wait......
Here come the stat police.


We wouldn't have half the wins without him, but I've been told the stats don't lie.

good luck with the thread, siss.

i expect several members to come take a dump in it as soon as they see it. infact, theyve practically proclaimed it their duty.

its not like anyone is saying benisgod or anything.

Then off with there heads. If they cant appreciate our franchise QB then they should go root for the Bengals or the Lions.

If I had to choose between any quarterbacks in the league to be on my Football team, I'd take Ben over any of them any day of the week.

Hey! Ben had a bad game Sunday, sorry but that happens. Everyone has bad days. I'll still take Big Ben any day of the week. When it's time to make a play, he's shown that he is more than able to do what needs to be done. For all the people bashing him I got news for you, we wouldn't be worth a s**t without him.

Its really pathetic and hilarious to hear people bash Ben. For one, is the first QB since Bradshaw who I feel good about dropping back in the 4th quarter playing from behind. Stats don't quantify that.

He had a bad game Sunday. All QB's do this 3-4 times a year unless your name is Brady and he does it 1-2 times a year.

Its something worth arguing about on a message board but we all know Ben will be our QB for the next decade, thank God....
