With all of that said, Ben has some growing to do as a QB. Unless something tragic befalls him, he'll be a better QB 3 years from now than he is today.
Even say it! Now you have cursed him!

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.

>>>>>>>>>>>>Tier 1: Peyton Manning

Tier 2: Tom Brady, Carson Palmer, Eli Manning, Matt Hasselbeck

Tier 3: Marc Bulger

Tier 4: Donovan McNabb, Trent Green, Kurt Warner, Jake Delhomme, Drew Bledsoe, Jake Plummer

Tier 5: Daunte Culpepper, Brett Favre, Ben Roethlisberger,<<<<<<<<<<

Except that Brady is the only Tier 1 QB in the league the rest is pretty much on target. Brady is the only QB who can beat you with his team and then beat his team as the QB of your team. The rest of the QBs in this league are only as good as the teams they're on. Without the Steelers, Roethlisberger wouldn't be anywhere.

I don't play fantasy football. If I did then I'd probably never get anything done and because I'd rather bet the games straight up.

But outside of Heath Miller are there any Steeler players worth taking in the FF game. I think Keisel would also be a sleeper pick.

FF is an absolute blast, and it makes you enjoy the sport as a whole much, much more. You follow all the teams, are helpless to avoid it. You are watching the stat tracker from 1PM Sunday until late Monday night, literally.

The other guys here are right, great fantasy football QBs aren't the best as far as team effort. It's not about individual effort on Sunday, but the Steelers know that very well. Ben, however, is a good 2nd fantasy QB in that he makes very, very few bad decisions.
I really hate when people attempt to rank NFL players from a Fantasy Football point of view but I do agree with this post. When I participated in the Fantasy Leagues I watched more football than I've ever watched in my life. I watched teams that I could never imagine watching i.e...Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills, Oakland Raiders etc. It seems as though you have a reason to watch just about every game. It's the only way to get your monies worth from NFL Sunday Ticket.
