Imagine if one of the Manning brothers, or Tom Brady were given the same caliber team that the Steelers have currently given Roethlisberger. What would the reaction be?
You can argue how elite any of these quarterbacks are, but what you can't argue are facts, and the facts include, but are not limited to:
1. Roethlisberger is a two time SB champion.
2. His post season stats overall are much better than average.
3. His regular season stats are among the greatest of all time.
4. He's among the top paid quarterbacks in the league.
Given those facts, how does the Steelers organization justify surrounding a quarterback of that caliber with the current receivers and offensive line?
