Default If you doubt Ben.....

Find another team! So tired of all these moronic posts of "is he elite", "can he carry this team", "who would you rather have than" blah blah blah! The guy is still young, gets beat up week in and week out and there is NO OTHER QB in the league right now other than Brady that has more Super Bowl wins or appearances than Ben Roethlisberger.... PERIOD!!! Peyton - 1 win 1 loss, Eli 1 win, Brees 1 win, Rodgers 1 win.... All these so called "ELITE" QBs can't carry the mans jock with what he has to go through every week. Look how many times those QBs get sacked or knocked down compared to Ben and then complain! If you are a Steeler fan, support the man and quit crying. Without him we still have Tommy Maddox running the offense....

But you're missing the fact that those quarterbacks get rid of the ball with a quickness. The ball is snapped and 1- 1,000 2 - 1,000 and boom the ball is out. Ben's ankle injury and a large portion of his sacks are due to his propensity to hang onto the football. We've got 4 losses on the season and our 8 year vet qb has at least 10 turnovers in those 4 losses.

Check Rodgers' number of sacks and then we'll talk.
While you're at it, check also his number of TD, INT, yardage and % of completion and compare that to Ben's numbers.
Supporting the man doesn't mean being blind. There are lots of Steelers this year who are not playing great, and our $120M Ben is unfortunately one of them.

Where in the hell do you get 120M? He signed a 100mil dollar contract years ago and it was just this last year that he restructured his contract. These threads are making us look like Raturd fans after a loss. Truly embarrassing Steelers Fever, truly embarrassing. This place in unreadable with posts like this.

Not many of those "elite" QBs play with the injuries Ben does either. In fact, there are 2 rules in the books because of one QB in particular. Ben takes shots all game long but if you touch Brady's skirt........a new rule gets invoked the following season.

100million or 120million doesn't change the fact that Ben is not consistently playing good football.

What? One bad game on a shattered ankle against the toughest defense to score on in the entire NFL? The Steelers were riding a 4 game winning streak, one of the hottest streaks in the league and would of been 5 if the defense would of stopped Flacco after Ben hit Wallace for the go a-head touchdown against Baltimore. Hell, the talk around the league when we beat the Pats was that Roethlisberger was having his best season ever amidst the woeful offensive line and just this past week, held the AFC's #1 seed. How easy haters will show their ugly faces after a loss.

We go as far as Ben takes us, haters. Believe it.

Really? I clearly remember the Steelers winning the Superbowl in Detroit despite him.

Nice try, but it's got nothing to do with hating. And it most certainly isn't one bad game, 21 td's and 14 int's is average, and it certainly isn't great.

Like what was said, touch any of those "Faces of the NFL" and $$$$$$ comes out your pocket! Hit Ben and no one cares but Steeler fans... Fu@& the pretty boys and those ruining the league! Ben's a throwback but with an arm! Keep it up Ben and get you THIRD ring....
