Default I think the NFL Vetoed Ben in Top 10 Steelers

Ben should have been in the top ten according to the "criteria"..Hard working...tough..etc. No QB I can remember is as tough as Ben and his winning percentage at a young age is unquestionable. I think it would have looked really bad if he made the list after his falling out with the Commish earlier in the year. I hate to say conspiracy,...

Just curious why you would say Ben is hard working ? I cant remember one off season where he ever came to camp in shape ? This year Ben came to camp with more chins than a Chinese phone book !

Ben hasnt done it long enough yet to be in the top 10
I know he has 2 rings but he has more years to prove
Their are 2 many greats that came through

Ham, Webster, Stallworth are all ahead of Ben IMO

LOL
He' also known for not studying videos. Hard working? I don't think so.
Top 10 Steelers? Not yet, IMO, not even top Steelers QB yet.

Beat me to this one

I'm not on the Ben Rehabilitation band wagon until I see what he does in the offseason. Prior to this year I believe he was working out with Casey hampton?

I've always heard he was diligent about his studying? He always comes with a few extra lbs., but I always heard he was well prepared film wise.

And exactly who would you leave off the list to put Ben on it? I'm not so sure he's proven himself just yet to beat out the other guys who did make the list. Is he good? Hell yeah. Is he tough? No question about it. Is he a perfect fit for our team? Sure is. But so were so many other players that didn't make that list.

Just about everyone said it, and it's true ... A top 10 list for the Steelers is absurd and nearly impossible to defend given all the GREATS that have played in our city. But what a GREAT problem to have! Just think how easy it would be to make a top 10 list for the poopstains.
