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.

I think is about right Siss, they are going by stats and Ben will prolly never have the big stats in this offense. The good thing hopefully is that he already knows this and is not a concern of his. We win when he doesnt havnt to throw 35 times a game, instead taking the win and only thowing 20 -25. In 10 years, the more important stat on him will be his winning percentage in all areas.

In second year he is ( dont quote me on exact , i am feeling too lazy to look up lol )


1-0 in Super Bowl (youngest Qb to ever do so)
5-1 in postseason
22- 3 reg season
28- 4 overall

damn! i cant believe he was ranked as high as 13th. ben is not a top notch ff qb. neither is/was willie/jerome or even hines and plex. j. reed is ok. miller will maybe a top 10.

one constant is pittsburghs defense as far as ff is concerned. which is good.

Midnight, I disagree just a little. I think Cowher will change the offense as we go, and Ben improves, hopefully to open it up some. I`m not so sure Ben will reamain alright with the current system. You heard him say in the superbowl sound bites to Cowher " Dont get conservative Play to win"

I don't think ben was really snubbed.
We're a running / defense team. I don't know if you play fantasy sports. But they're all about picking players with big stats. If you know me you know I think Ben is a great QB. But I wouldn't pick him as a fantasy draft pick . How often does he throw 3 or more touchdowns? Have a 300+ yard game? This is not to say that he can't. Watching the 3 playoff games shows his ability.

Kurt Warner? Mark Bulger? Drew Bledsoe? All above Ben?

He should at least be in the top ten.
