    Does anybody else here remember life before Ben?

    I read threads here about needing a new QB? It was agony between Terry Bradshaw and Big Ben those years were very hit and miss. I almost didn't watch when they named Mike Tomzack starting QB..lol wtf. I don't want to go through that again for awhile yet. Ben has had some ups and downs for him, but he is far better then anything that is available out there for us. We can get to and win more SB's with him as the guy. I am not sure what they are going to do to get this ship fixed but changing a QB is not the answer..

    Having a QB like Ben keeps us from going back to the days of seeing pictures of Bubby Bristers mom on the jumbotron, watching Kent Graham Cracker getting sacked more than a potato farmer, Slash crying on the sidelines, O'donnell tossing interceptions out like Candy in the Super Bowl, or Mark Malone just being Mark Malone.

    No thanks, I'll take Ben anyday.

    I know, strange, perhaps as the league is making it a passing game that these young guys are finding it easier, and thus,are better. Could Aaron Rogers pick apart the 70's steelers with the 70's rules?? I dont think so, but he can now, and his numbers reflect it


    on another note, Interesting How Ben , Eli, and Rivers of the 2004 draft class are all watching on TV 3 rookies in the playoffs, and 3 very good ones...

    Arians may interview with Eagles.

    Life after Ben may come a lot sooner than you think.

    Because the NFL is anti-defense. It makes it much easier for a rookie QB to succeed.
    It's no fun when the rabbit has the gun
