    He is the 3rd leading scorer in steeler history (645) behind Gary Anderson (1,343) and Roy Gerela (731) and he could possibly pass Gerela this year.

    He also has 13 tackles, 11 which are solo, which is about a dozen more then Anderson and Gerela put together I'd guess
    I'm actually suprised that with those sort of stats/numbers/facts that he isn't spending more time in Hawaii in February...
    Now add the fact that he kicks on the worst surface in the NFL in a stadium where there has never been a FG over 50 yards (just heard that one on Monday Night) and his numbers are even more remarkable.

    IMO not enough credit is given to players who play in harsher conditions. Take a Peyton Manning for example. Of course he is a great QB, one of the greatest in history! However, what happens if you take him out of his climate controlled carpeted stadium and drop him in Buffalo, Pittsburgh, Green Bay? I'm sure he would still be great, but can he put up nearly the same numbers thowing through a windy rain or snowstorm in December?

    Two Things:

    1) I can't believe that some Steelers fans bitched when Reed got his last contract...

    2) When you consider that Ben is now, officially, one of the all-time great QBs (at least when considering YpA and Passer Rating) and you look at the only other QB who is on both lists, Kurt Warner, and you consider that Warner played in a dome when he racked up those statistics, it makes Ben's accomplishment even more remarkable...

    Producing at a high level despite playing outside in a cold weather stadium makes both Reed and Roethlisberger look even better, IMO...

    Oh no, you have to hand it to Vinateri for his tenure in Foxboro...

    Brady, on the other hand, is just a cheater who doesn't even rank in the Top 20 All-Time YpA...

    Besides, his career is over a la Carson Palmer...except Brady is older...I don't think he'll ever be the same...

    Every once in a while these threads make me feel like I'm with a bunch of guys in a bar in Pittsburgh.

    This is one of those threads.

    Thanks everyone!! You've made my day!

    i didn't get your comment. Did you mean it makes for a good photoshop opportunity, or that it was a photoshopped pic. If its the latter, here is the link:

    Also in the article is a good story about it being Ben's 100th TD pass...but nobody really talked about it...

    Yeah, I didn't think it was a photoshop. And it seems that Jeff could just be commenting on how close the ball was to the upright on the winning kick.

    And I never thought about the fact that Jeff and Ed had the same last name. Do you guys think they're related??

    EDIT: DUH, the caption under the pic says the same thing about the ball being close to the upright. I'm an azz
