Default A kinder, gentler Ben?

He states Carson Palmer is the better QB? What does it all mean?

Frankly I would have to agree...Palmer has proven to be a better, more consistent QB than Ben. Do I still think the Steelers are gonna whoop their asses? Yes.

But I still hang my hat on the fact that when Palmer was Ben's current age, he was still playing for USC...give Ben a year or two more and we'll see where this ends up...

Ben will continue to get better. which IMO is pretty scary for the rest of the afc north. Carson is a fine QB but they play in completly different systems.

Ben is a bigger sugarcoater than Cowher... he always gives his opponents and his teammates all the credit in the world.

I remember sometime during that streak of games where Ben was injured and getting smashed in the pocket... we actually won a game, and the first thing out of his mouth was something like... "I gotta give credit to the offesive line and the running game, those guys did great." In reality... we rushed for like 50 yards, and Ben got sacked like 6 times and practically had to be carried off the feild.

By the way... Carson has played better than Ben this season. Ben always says the right thing, I'm sure the Rooney's are proud to have him representing their franchise. I am sure that Palmer could have easily admited Ben was the better QB during last season if he was asked.
