Despite all that, he still finished this season with a lower TD percentage and a higher INT percentage than Roethlisberger did, and he's still never finished a season with a triple-digit passer rating. He did do something this season that Roethlisberger has never done, though: throw five INTs in one game.
Dude needs to put together multiple deep playoff runs and multiple regular seasons like the one he just had before I even entertain the thought of him being "elite."

Geez, is this even worth responding to? Anyone who looks at Ben's numbers and career know he places favorably among the best in the game.

Okay, Ben isn't elite, but he is the quarterback of the Steelers for the next 6-7 years, so we'll just have to "suffer" with a non-elite quarterback and hope for the best.

Every time I open one of your threads I'm hoping it's going to be attached to an article, instead it's always your own opinion and typically ridiculous. RG3, Wilson, Luck all Superior to Ben after another season? Man those teams must have hit the damn lottery. I'm convinced you're from another planet. Never mind that before the injury this season Ben was on pace to have a career year AND was taking less sacks.
