    Post ESPN Post game

    Did you guys catch the ESPN post game conversation on how Ben is still not an "elite"QB? A few years ago he was called a game manager and was a guy who got to where he was because of the running game and throwing only 20 passes a game or whatever. This season he's putting up ridiculous #'s, so now the argument changed to he's not in the Brady/Manning divine place because he doesn't "dictate" to defenses... What? This is just complete and utter bull I just can't believe the bias against Ben and don't understand the reasoning behind it if there is any. What is it that he has to do throw 10 TD passes a game? I'm starting to believe what many here have said about ex players having hatred for the Steelers from past beatings they took with just plain envy at their success mixed in there too. It has to be something like that because the analysis is just too stupid even for ex jocks.
    One more thing is Steve Young plain retarded or on drugs? He babbles sometimes incoherently and his train of thought just derails completely somethings not right with that guy.

    Oh there was also mention of how it's the weapons he has around him that make him look good, apparently Manning/Brady have never had good recievers.

    Couldn't have said it any better myself; Ben will never be the NFL's poster child because it does it the old fashion way every week. He goes out there and takes the hits, makes the tough sneaks, wills his team to victory with sheer determination, gets his jersey dirty, and without a doubt is the toughest QB in the league. Take your Brady and your Manning; neither one of them would thrive in Pittsburgh the way that Ben does.

    It's all good, it just keeps Ben playing with fire in his belly.

    Keep in mind the number of concussions Steve Young has endured, and the fact that he hates the Steelers with a passion.

    Watch him sometime, whenever he's forced to say something positive about Pittsburgh his face muscles twitch and he starts tapping his fingers.

    This pisses me off. Ben is 27 years old and already has 2 superbowl rings. He has one of the best QB ratings ever in the NFL and he is huge. He can throw the ball as good if not better than anyone in the league and he can take a hit. The sports media has never given him the respect he deserves. Did anyone see Mendenhall throw up that block to protect Ben last night? Mendenhall has really become just what we needed since Bettis retired.

    yeah, Young is a pitiful announcer....
    Agreed though, Ben is in the class whether the haters want to admit it or not. Anyone with a brain knows it.

    Ben is tops.. The media sees the steelers having a usual one or two quarters a game with 0 offensive points... they lay that problem on Ben.

    I lay that on Bruce. We fix that and we will be an unbeatable machine.

    Then Ben will be the king of QB's in the medias eyes.
