The way I look at it, Ben got the Steelers to the Super Bowl. Yes, he had an off night, but he got them there.

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.

When you have a great team, people step up when others struggle. We've been doing it all season.

Koopa's right that next time in the Super Bowl, we'll see the Ben we're used to - pressure will be much easier to deal with now that he already has one under his belt!

All the crap doesn't matter now. He played strong to get us into the show.

Poor kid was nervous as sin. Heck even Hines Ward asked Ray Lewis before the game if it was okay to be this nervous and he said "yeah, all the great ones are."

Don't worry about Ben, he'll do better next year.

All in all, he played an absolutely dreadful game. He personally made one good play and that of course was the 3rd and 28 to Hines that got them down to the 3 yard line. And quite honestly, that ball was under-thrown and I thought Hines really made a great adjustment on that pass to make the play. Hence, he is the MVP of the game. I will say this, the way Ben kept that play alive buying time, scrambling out of the pocket while still having the presence of mind to not step over the line of scrimmage, and finding an open receiver looked awfully reminiscent of a play that Brett Favre might make in that situation. This season not withstanding, anything Ben does that resembles Favre is all right by me. He's only 23 years old folks, I think we've got a pretty good dozen or so seasons to look forward to.

This isnt baseball fellas. Numbers dont mean jack. He made one bad mistake the whole game. Seattle played great D, i think they were the cause of him playing bad more then ben not playing well. But made 5 or 6 big plays in the game. Emmitt Smith had 49 yards in SB XXX. No one remembers that much. Ben will be known as the youngest QB to ever win a ring and is 27-4 in his career in two seasons...
