Default Re: I think the NFL Vetoed Ben in Top 10 Steelers

Not really funny to me. If Bradshaw is #2 ahead of guys like Lambert, and the fact that Jerome Bettis is even on the list at all when guys like Dawson, Ham, and Greene are no where to be found, Ben is a shoe in.

I've heard the exact opposite. As for the few extra lbs, he's been looking more like a slob than a professional athlete for several years now. With Cowher, we had "The Chin", with Ben, we have "The Chins".

There are alot of guys more deserving than Ben, in fact I don't think anyone who is not a hall of famer should have been on the list.
There was no Ham, no Stallworth, no Stautner, , no John henry Johnson there sure as heck shouldn't be Ben. If we can the the super bowl this year then he might get my vote. Bradshaw is the best QB we've had.

I kind of wondered if he was off the list due to the last few years of whatever
you want to call it. But after further review, he hasn't been playing long enough
to leave anyone off the list who did make it. I really think - like some said on
that show - that with the Steelers, a top 10 isn't appropriate. Too many great
players have to be left off. Webster, Stallworth, Ham, etc.

Steeler fans have been fortunate... think of the 'Next-10' team you could assemble

Well Stallworth shouldve been over Swann. I'm not sold on Bettis either, I think that was a gift for Xmas. Would he be on that list if Ben didnt make the tackle after the fumble since we wouldve lost that year? Doubtful.

With 2 rings i would've liked to have seen Ben there, but its only 10 players deep.

I read the ,messages about ben being out of shape, a slob, chins etc. I have never once not seen him leave it all on the field. Never once has he taken the glory for himself, never once has he not hand out the glory in a win. He shoulders ever loss, doesnt whine, plays beaten up, bloddy, broken bones etc etc.

Regardless of his past issues, which I could not careless about, since he was never found guilty of anything, other than being young and dumb. He has been the only QB that i would want if I was starting a team today. Last year, 2 years ago, 3 years ago.
Give him an Oline and people will be asking, who was the other guy that had 4 rings?

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 !

Top 10 Steelers? Not yet, IMO, not even top Steelers QB yet.
Yeah, no kidding. Look at all of those rings we won with Mike Tomczak, Bubby Brister, Neil O'Donnell and Kordell Stewart.

Ben's got to lose a lot more games to compete with those guys.

I don't see why being better than these guys would make Ben a Top 10 Steelers and the top QB ever.
