    and I don't think stopplayin believes what he types.. he likes the attention.

    Sounds like you're are hating

    How did Troy play poorly in SB 40? Do explain. In SB 43 and 45 he was injured and according to Wizenhunt made then run the ball more in the 1st half (trying to avoid Troy). Rodgers avoided Troy and targeted Clark. Too bad you all are die hard fans and dont understand the intricasies of a scheme. YOU DONT HAVE TO MAKE PLAYS to have an effect on Defense. Troy's mere pressence make a difference in where you will attack. Did you see Peyton Manning in week 1? The REST of the league has the same respect for Polamalu just check every poll. Why doesnt Ben get the same respect from his peers?

    You might think Flacco is improving at a faster pace but in reality it's just that he was so far behind Ben from the start.

    lol... if someone pointed out the game planning and defensive schemes teams had to run to defend against a second year QB who is the size of a LB you wouldn't allow it.


    We weren't even discussing presence.. we were talking about playing up to ones standards

    This thread amuses me. Here we are 11 pages in. SMH

    The fact is that Ben Roethlisberger is the very best QB the Pittsburgh Steelers have EVER had. EVER. Are there things about his game that some might want to change? Sure. That doesn't take away from the fact that for better or worse, he is the best player at his position in the history of this storied franchise.

I didnt rip Ben. You view it as ripping because you HATE what I say about Ben ( YOU CANT HANDLE THE TRUTH).Brady keeps his team in the game vs the Giants. Ben played those SAME Giants in 08 and had FIVE turnovers and we lost big. Put Bens stats vs the Giants up and compare them to Bradys. TELL ME WHAT YOU FIND LOL
    And yet, you answer none of my points...

    Perhaps you should follow the advice of your own screen name and stop playing...

    Because in all of the drivel you posted above, you could not deny the hypocrisy you accuse others of having...

    Now list Bens 4th quarter stats. You know the ones that mean something?
    Fourth Q stats? Okay, how is this.........

    Ben has 20 career 4th Q comebacks - tied for 18th all-time

    Palmer has 12 and is tied for 73rd

    Really don't know why you guys bother. It should be obvious that a poster like the one above will take whatever facts you give him and ignore them if they don't fit their personal agenda, then try to find another stat to misinterpret. These people are not interested in rational discourse. They are interested in their own agenda and ignore all else to that end.

    For example, even though he himself asked for 4th quarter stats and were given these:

    Ben has 20 career 4th Q comebacks - tied for 18th all-time

    Palmer has 12 and is tied for 73rd
    ...now he will find a way to fixate on something else and downplay those statistics. "I was talking about <insert some other stat involving the 4th quarter>". It's called moving the goalposts and no matter how many times these types of people are proven wrong they will just ignore the facts and move on to a different imagined stat that is all of a sudden so much more important than the last.

    This is really just a waste of bandwidth IMO. (And so is my bitching about it, but hey, I feel better)

    all 12 of Carson Palmer's 4th quarter comebacks probably came against Dick LeBeau...
