Big Ben: No awards, just another gutty W
We are truly blessed that Ben is our QB. Could you imagine Brady or Manning doing what Ben does, not in your life.
PITTSBURGH -- Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn't going to win the NFL most valuable player award. Aaron Rodgers will take that. Roethlisberger won't win the offensive player of the year honor, either. Give that to Drew Brees or Tom Brady.
If there was a trophy for grittiest quarterback, though, the unanimous pick would be Roethlisberger. When it comes to playing in pain, there is Roethlisberger, and then there is everyone else in this generation of football players.
You can break his nose. You can break his thumb. The problem is, no one has ever broken his will to win.
