    I could be wrong though...
    I think 39-16 is his regular season record as a starter. If you add 5-2 in the playoffs, that would give you 44-18. I think the only game you are off is the regular season loss you are giving him during his rookie season. He was 13-0 as a starter during the 04 regular season. They lost the first game he played in against the Ravens, but he did not start that game. Maddox started, and the Steelers were already losing by a decent amount when he got hurt if I recall correctly. I think I remember Ben bringing them back a bit to make it somewhat of a game, but it was not enough to pull out the victory. That loss goes to Maddox as the starter rather than Roethlisberger who replaced him in that game.

    that game was the best loss ever in i have seen. you could just see the potential ben had. i think he only made one mistake in that game, but i remember screaming my head off after the game as to why maddox started at qb to begain that year

    You're right, it should be 13-0 during the regular season. I updated the numbers...

    Re: Sorry for the dumb question

    I think Ben's defining moment came yesterday, lol. I have a friend who is a Bengals fan and bashes the Steelers all the time and is a Palmer stroker. Anyway we play in a keeper fantasy football league where you can select a set number of players from your roster from last year and protect them on your roster for this year. I have Ben (and Holmes!) and me and my friend have been tossing trade offers back and forth. When he asked for Ben at one point, I jumped all over him. This comes from the same guy that used the game manager line and always talked about how he never threw the ball and how much better Palmer was. I quickly declined and told him he was a loser...ha. At least he recognizes the talent....FINALLY!
