    1. No
    2. Yes
    3. Incomprehensible
    4. No

    Heard Don Banks of SI on Fox Sports Radio this evening while driving home from work.

    He said Ben certainly isn't perfect (who is) but that he is one of the most instinctual QBs he's ever seen and just wins games.

    BTW, the original premise...6 pages ago...was spot-on. Elway was always a beast at pulling wins out of his @$$. But, it wasn't until the Broncos supplied him with a truly manhandling OL that he begun to win SBs.

    On that last comment, Ben already has him beat. And, as I have said all along, certain members of the Steelers current OL (Max Sucks) are more than welcome to make me look like a fool and play like champions if they want to become champions.

    But Ben already has one SB ring in possession and he is part of a team that, so far, has not necessarily needed a manhandling OL. Not that it wouldn't benefit Ben to have such an OL, but he hasn't had that to date nor has it affected his ability to win his game's top prize.

    Miller and Ward are the most consistent, and they've been suspect at times.

    Throw any other QB in the league in Bens shoes and we are no better than .500.
    Even by groupie standards, this is an unbelievable statement. The O-line is not the machine it was when Grimm was coach but it's still no worse than others and better than most. So many times this guy has a full five seconds to find receivers (count it out if you don't believe me) and still can't do it, throwing the ball away, taking a sack or fumbling. Then the line gets blamed. Absolutely unbelievable.

    On Sunday there were three different receivers he threw to who didn't turn around to see the ball coming. So I guess by an incredible coincidence, all three were too dumb to know the play. Of course, it's an impossiblity that Ben panicked or didn't even know the route himself.

    And of course, Ben has no defense keeping him in the game during his comas. Yeah, he has very little to work with.

    You give half the QBs in this league the tools to work with that Roethlisberger has and we'd be undefeated. The sad part is that one of those QBs is sitting on our bench.

    ... which makes the comparison with Roethlisberger legitimate.

    No disrespect to lefty, but he was dropped by the Jags, the Falcons, wasn't even picked
    up by anyone until Batch went down and this joker thinks he's better then Ben.
