Which QB would you want behind center for a must-score drive in the final minutes of a game?
Peyton Manning? Seriously? The guy that chokes in vital situations time and time again? The guy that is one-and-done 7 out of the 9 times he's been in the playoffs? This is the guy you want to have develop a tying score in the closing minutes of the game?
He's a career choker and it's been well documented. I still have visions of him failing miserably after being handed the game in the 2005 divisonal round. Also, losing and getting owned by the Chargers secondary over and over again. The only time he's won a championship was when his defense got a spark in the playoffs; not to mention his two runningbacks getting 113 and 77 yards, respectively, in the SB game. I can understand Brady, at least. But come on NFL fans. People are too enamored by fantasy stats and oreo commercials and can't see that Ben is probably the clutchest QB in the league. Forget all of the comeback drives, the man has the best 3rd down completion percentage since he's been in the league, which is THE BEST stat that any quarterback can have. It's not only clutch, but keeps the offense on the field and wins us time of posssession battles.
I can't wait for Roethlisberger to prove the critics wrong this year. No more strong defenses week in and week out. You would think his SB game winning drive would change something...
Oh and vote for Ben
