You're right Ben is a tough son of a gun. Had that in my earlier post, but my hunt and peck typing method hit a wrong key and erased the post and I fogot it the second time.

It seems as though Steelers fans are either on one extreme or the other.

I heard one guy say Batch could have beat the Packers.

I heard another guy say he wouldn't take any other QB in the league over Ben.

Ben is neither terrible nor elite. He's a good leader; he's clutch; he's very elusive; most importantly he's tough. But he's an erratic passer - extremely inaccurate at times. Even at his best, his accuracy is only above average. It seems to me he has trouble reading defenses as well.

Credit Ben for using his strengths. A man must know his limitations, also. He normally doesn't make a quick decision and make a tight pass because he's not very accurate and his deficiencies reading a D. What he does is buy time with his legs, strength, and brute waiting for a receiver to get wide open.

Sometimes this strategy works beautifully. When it does he looks like John Elway. Unfortunately it doesn't always work.

@OP

Say all this now. And when we're winning again you'll be screaming for Ben like a school girl.

I hate bandwagon fans.

Aha.

Aha.

Ahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

Denver in Elway's appearances in the Superbowl before his first win. Denver after it.

Look, it ain't always gonna be pretty, and the Packers Defense makes good quarterbacks look bad.

I'll take Ben. He's gonna be a good boy, and retire a Steeler. And ALL of you will eat crow because of it. No one will be surprised if he is the first to win 5 Superbowls, and if he doesn't win another, he helped give us two, and some great football.

Well said.

Though everyone said we wouldn't get back after 43.

We did.

Maybe we can do it again.

One thing I think Terry had on Ben though was his arm. Dude could throw a rocket down the field.
Yeah you're right Bradshaw had a cannon. One of his nicknames was The Blond Bomber. Ben also reminds me of Bradshaw with his toughness.

Agreed.

I've often said that if you shortened Ben by three inches and put a #12 jersey on him, it would be hard to tell the difference between him and Bradshaw (except for the arm).
