Default CNNSI Article-Ben got an A?

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/201...html?eref=sihp

I thought this was his worst game of the season. I think Ben had a "Sanchezesque" game and Sanchez had a Rotherlisbergeresque type of game. I am glad the Steelers won, but I don't think Ben deserves high marks for his performance this game..
Every other game he deserves an A..

Ben made some clutch plays but I agree, I thought he was pretty average tonight. I'd give him a B- because he made two big throws at the end.

"Great players aren't always great, they're just great when they have to be."

but with that said, I don't think his performance was an "A" by any means. He played well though considering how good the jets secondary is.

Yeah..I thought the performances were reversed..Honestly Sanchez looked more like Ben and vice versa.
Part of it probably had to do with Pouncey's absence.

As far as throwing goes, this was the worst Ben has looked in years. Personally, I think it's the damn gloves. Thankfully, he'll be without them for the SB.

Ben's play brought the W when it mattered. Stop trying to overanalyze everything to death.

His fantasy numbers sucked, and that's all that matters to some.

Oh, I agreed with your initial statement. Ben made a shitload of plays that helped us win tonight, many with his legs. Anyone who couldn't see that is blind. But to some people, it's a "subpar" performance if he doesn't go 25-30, 300+ and at least 3 TDs.

I'm worried about his reality numbers... 10 completions and least 4 of those were terrible throws. The last few minutes of the 4th he had - 3 yards passing in the second half. He had key runs but no way do we beat green bay with another performance like that.
