Question Big ben in top three QB's?

NFL network is always hatin on big ben and saying that hes not in the top 3 QB's and im gettin annoyed bout it

Peyton Manning and Tom Brady(if that knee doesn't affect him which hopefully it will) are a obvious choices but is their anyone else who wins games like ben? is clutch like ben? makes all the big throws like ben? who scrambles and dodges defenders like theres no tommrow? wellllll i dont think so

At this point in all of their careers, and I'm not even being a homer - completely objectively, I think I might have Ben number one right now. At least sharing the spot with Brady in my opinion.

Brady has the three rings and the touchdown record.

Manning will break all of the QB records.

After that, though, I can't think of who else it can be.

The two super bowls and 4th quarter dominance are more than enough.

Ben will continue to be overshadowed by the defense. Those not in the know will continue to insist that he was handed those two Super Bowls by LeBeau.

Let them think what they want; we know what's really going on.

If you rate the QB's just on Passing Yardage and TD's then Ben will no rank very high. Now if you rate him on what I think is important to a winning team like willing to be ok with handing the ball of to the RB's in order to shorten the game, make the big throws when needed, driving the team in for a needed TD when the game is on the line. Willing to take the hit in order to make a play and winning games overall I would say he is in the Top 2 QB's and number 1 based on just coming off a Super Bowl win and game winning drive.

Terry Bradshaw did not start getting his just due until he won his 3rd Super Bowl and I guess Ben will have to do the same. I see the Ben having 4 SB wins if not 5.

Hey It may not mean much but he gets my vote as the best QB in the NFL right now.

Oh, hell. They'll never give Ben that kind of honor. It'll go Brady, Manning, and then if there's any question, they'll make sure the next honor goes to someone like Chad Pennington or Trent Green.

Who really cares as long as we keep winning? At the end of the day, he will get his recognition.

I don't see why Ben would not rank in the top three. The man has proven time and time again that he can get it done when he needs to. So why not give Ben the props.

Bradshaw never had huge stats in the regular season. What made him one of the top 3 QBs of all time is his 4-0 stat in Super Bowl wins.

This current Steeler team reminds me a lot of the 1970s team. The team arose from the garbage pile in 1972 with the biggest play in NFL history until SB XLIII. Some characteristics of dominance were true back then also such as the Steel Curtain, LBers, Franco, Swann and Stallworth. The team started off as a tough running team and then evolved into a well balanced, but with a flying circus passing game.

All Ben needs is a SB MVP and his legendary status will be galvanized. It is so close I can smell it. If we stay healthy, history will be made.
