Hahaha! At the very least, try to be consistent in your reasoning. If Warner needed the help of Fitzgerald and Boldin (you forgot Breaston by the way), the same applied to Ben with Holmes, Ward and Miller.
Am I negative about Ben? No more and no less than with any other Steeler. When he plays well, I admit it, when he sucks I admit it, and when he acts like a moron off the field, I don't put the blame on others.
Maybe I expect more from a guy making over $100M than you?

Oh, okay. Misunderstood. I thought you meant that he's not "a" top Steelers QB yet. I would definitely agree that he's not "the" top Steelers QB, though he could potentially surpass Terry if he keeps at it. That remains to be seen, however,

I do believe wholeheartedly though that Bradshaw benefited from being on a better overall team, whereas the current Steelers (and the Steelers that Ben won championships won with in 05 and 08) while, very good, do not come close to the the level of talent that was on the 70's team. Ben does have a little less to work with than Bradshaw, and his team does have to play within the confines of bullsh** NFL rules that were implemented in recent years.

Ummm.... it isn't close to the level of talent that the 70's team competed against, either.

I guess the QB position isn't a skill position ? So your saying. My point is the one poster said Ben's hard working. Nothing could be further from reality. For years it has been reported that he has been the last one on the practice field and the first one off.

People ways consider recievers and running backs skill positions :P

I'm not going to disagree that Ben probably never works out in the weight room or on the track, but he's always watched a lot of film. Though a couple years he had too big of an ego for himself to handle and didn't work as hard then, but he worked hard his first could years and this past year... only because he was suspended but still lol.

Why are we argueing how hard of a worker he is anyways, he's winning games and not throwing interceptions, so he must be doing something right.

True, but without our D, there wouldn't be a crunch time cause we'd be too far behind.
I wish him and the offense could be more efficient during the first 57mn. ............. I'm just sayin'

Happy New Year to all Steelers fans.
