Okay, I've been reading some other NFL related boards. I keep reading comments about Ben being fat. Okay, so he's not ripped, but I don't think he is fat either. Fat is like Casey Hampton. Ben's not fat. Maybe they are just haters cause I don't see it. But I read that comment quite often in various places.

Here's an example:

Ben just makes plays and anyone who doesn't understand that knows absolutely nothing about football.

I was partial to this one:


He can't hear you. He has two Super Bowl rings in his ears.

I loved reading that thread.

Of course, it was a lot easier to digest with the Steelers having just won their second Super Bowl in four years.

And I don't care if every person on every planet thinks Ben sucks...I wouldn't trade him for any QB in the league.

A personal favorite from the thread.

Honorable mention.


K, well, first of all, I was drunk last night.

A classic. I am a drunk idiot but my point is still valid.

Why does everyone hate on soccer? I guess haters in general just lack the proper edumacation.

Why? Because here in America Soccer is for girls and pre-teens. We don't necesarrily hate it per se. It's just that no self respecting, red-blooded American man would play it. :wink:

I think we have to understand that people can't argue with his success (2 rings), and now, people have seen on a national stage what he can do (game -winning drive in the super bowl), so they can't throw the "he can't get it done" tag on him. All they have is cheap insults on the fanbase, or callign him fat, or saying "he only did it because of his team". Things that no one can prove. They've got nothing but a bad case of jealousy.

Ben's biggest obstacle to respect is that the Steelers often win ugly.

But like Tomlin says, you can throw style points out the window. I'll take the Lombardis.

Ben 'looks' fat because he wears some really thick rib pads. That's his protection against our often leaky OL. :D

How many ripped qb's are there? not very many and for the most part they suck. Ben does where rib pads which make him look larger than he is.

Ben better go on the Casey Hampton off-season diet if he wants to catch up with Jared Lorenzen...a.k.a. the Pillsbury Throwboy.

No kids, that is not an out-of-shape fan in the stands...it is an actual Giants' QB on media day prior to Super Bowl XLII.

Actually, Ben also needs to eat up if he wants to attain the hefty status of Daunte Culpepper or JaMarcus Russell.

I seem to remember a report on him when he was drafted. He looks very sound in the fundamentals and understands the game well. Has he ever taken an NFL snap?

Are there any "ripped" QBs? Baby Face Brady? Manning?

Ben is just a big guy in a "husky" sort of way :wink:

He is pretty "armored up" for games with rib pads and the like. He looks like he is about to go on patrol with the Army Rangers in Afghanistan.

He went 4 of 8 for 28 yards in 2 games in 2007 for the Giants. He was with the Colts during training camp this past year, but was cut at the end of the pre-season. He played with the Kentucky Horseman of the Arena League (actually af2) this year.

This guy is a ripped QB. And by QB, I mean queerbait even moreso than quarterback.

Sadder still, he has a SB ring.

by far the best quote in the thread...


"I'd bet over 70 percent of this board is over 40 lbs overweight, with dry twinkie filling crusted on their keyboards.

Don't hate because he's a BBM."
