Default Eli or Big Ben?

Honestly I'd take Eli. Just as clutch as Ben, and more methodical offensively.

Consider the possibility the offensive coordinator and offensive line have something to do with that

Let's see which one wins three before that question can be answered

Ben has better stats, Eli has two SB MVP awards. They're so close now I really don't know who's better. Bottom line is that you can't go wrong with either one.

Take away the Offensive coordinator ineptitude, Eli is still better than Ben. There were many situations in this game where I envisioned Ben brainfarting and screwing up. Also, Eli has yet to shit the bed in the Super Bowl.

Eli has been put in a good offensive system and he has run with it. Ben was put in a shitty offensive system and he embraces and defends it when he saw it first hand how screwed up it was. No sense of real accountability at all.

They're close. Eli I have to say as much as I hated his draft day stunt is a guy I'm starting to like. He's clutch as they come.

I would take Ben, with whoever was sending in Eli's plays as our OC. Establishing the run then killing the Pats with play action and occasional deep balls was exactly what we should be doing, IMO. Sprinkle in some of the Patriots Tight End short passes, and all would be well in Pittsburgh.

Eli entered the elite. That said, give me NOBODY else than Roethlisberger. I'm taking Ben ALL DAY LONG. I've seen, with my own eyes, the grittiest and toughest son of a bitch to play the QB position. Roethlisberger 100 times out of 100.

Yeah I probably would too. I really hope we look at the Giants QB coach.
