When Greg Cossel was asked by T. Suggs on Sports Nation to name FOUR Steeler starters he COULDNT. That showed me how much he watches the Steelers. So let me get this right, you are comparing an OLD Manning (Who is still better than Ben) to a in his prime Roethlisberger? Manning is coming off of his 4th neck procedure so YES, he will have some ups and downs in regards to accuracy.

Ben has played with Alan Faneca, Plaxico Burress, Jerome Bettis, Joey Porter, Hines Ward, James Harrison, M, Pouncey, Rashard Mendenhall, Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown, Troy Polamalu, Lemarr Woodley, Santonio Holmes and Heath Miller.
Sorry, Manning hasnt been as fortunate to be surrounded with that kind of talent.
You guys kill me. Roethlisberger makes a ROUTINE pass to Heath for a TD. Isnt that a pass that you EXPECT a 9 year vet to make (Scratch that. You expect that from a ROOKIE)
Do you really want to compare Mannings accuracy with Ben Roethlisbergers? Thats laughable.
You're the one that brought up the Qb ratings In the SBs
Point made? Lol
Yeah. Peyton has had nobody to play with over the years.

I listed who Ben has played with since 04. Now you go ahead and list WHO Manning has played with since 99 or so. Lets compare. Ok go
I just did with the offense.
If you think that's comparable, so be it. Like I said you've already made up ur mind.
On the defensive side We're drafting back ups for 2 years with 3 1st round draft choices (hood, Timmons heyward) and throw in a middle 2nd for worldis
While the colts draft Gonzales to be their 3rd wr with Harrison and wayne already entrenched as the starters. Then A FEW YEARS ago draft a RB in the 1st to split time with addai
It's pretty clear how each organization wants to go about with their philosophy
You are hesitant to list those name because you and I both know, where the talent lies. The talent lies in Pittsburgh. Our organization supplies Ben Roethlisberger with bookoo talent and he rewards them with mediocre stats. They pay him 100 million for ONE 30 TD season (Done before the contract 07). No, 30 TD seasons since he got his money. Ben Roethlisberger is a FG machine that when hot is among the leagues best. Being hot only 4 games out of a season is stealing money to me.
Yeah. You keep thinking that

Even in his least efficient Super Bowl run, Ben Roethlisberger was more efficient than Neil O'Donnell was in his only Super Bowl run. Go **** yourself, you know-nothing piece of ****.
Pittsburgh, PA: City of Champions.
Post season is a short sample size. In 08 WHY didnt you list the fact that Ben had over TWENTY turnovers? Why are you so dishonest? So does his short post sesason eliminate what he did over 16 games?
Did you notice that he puts "Excluding Super Bowl" Why does he do that? Because he know Ben habitually sucks in Super Bowls and he wants to support his agenda.
look at the stats he lists. Dont his stats support my claims? My claim is that "Ben is good but not elite". Look at the stats he posted! Good stats or elite? I think we can agree that the stats are good ones and not the stats you pay someone 100 million. Ben is STEALING MONEY.
I mention Neil and he think that I"m saying "Neil is better than Ben". What an idiot. I merely said that Neil was KNOWN as an efficient Qb in regards to turnovers. SB 30 was an anomaly. Never said Neil was good. Ben is better than O'donnell, I agree. Ben is better than a backup. CONGRATULATIONS lol
