    Ben - 61st Best Player in NFL - 2013

    Just heard they ranked the players and Ben was 61. (Probably Ryan Clark's fault somehow) He's now officially the most underrated athlete in all of sports and it's not close.

    Please football God, let him take this personally.

    Alot of Steelers will be putting it all out on the field this year. Looking forward to the chips on shoulders and grudges played out. There will be blood.

    It would be impossible for him to NOT take it personal. I, as a Steeler fan, was upset about it.

    Ben was 26/8 TD/INT, has two rings, three SB appearances, at least four AFCC appearances... and there are 11 better QBs???

    Apparently Gregg Rosenthal, the nfl.com writer of Around the League agrees with you. That is pretty much what he said in a recent article.

    btw: How do they know there will 11 QB's ranked higher than Ben.

    As just about everyone has already said, these type things regardless who is doing the rankings are pretty much nothing.

    I watch the nfl network quite often at 11pm to 12 during the week and really had not heard much about this show. But since the thread came up I googled it and noticed that at least six of the players in this last batch had articles with the same premise. "How could they diss our players like this?" Frankly I had never even heard of most of them. It is really sort of laughable.

    btw 2: I noticed that Heath Miller made it at 97 and Troy Polamalu was at 91. Now I'm sure those are accurate too. No?

    Again I wonder, How would they know 11 QB's will be ranked higher? I mean the other 60 players have not been announced yet. And if they already know who they are, why don't they just publish the whole thing. Get the stupid thing over with.

    Oh, I get it, they even have me, who truly thinks this sort of crap is idiotic and worthless actually wasting time commenting on it. Hmm?

    Let's not go overboard. I don't necessarily agree with the ranking, but remember Ben was out a quarter of the season, which likely influenced the opinion.

    Link?

    Wondering what criteria they used, maybe Sapp got 60 votes??!

    Anyway, it doesn't much matter - the W-L this coming season will be the proof of the pudding.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Sapp was shocked as well....He said he didnt know what to think about the players voting. It surprised the sh%t outta me.

    Just don't get the drop from 2011 to 2012. He had a much better season in 2012.

    Maybe a case of players having the what-have-you-done-for-me-lately syndrome. 'Cause up until that serious injury, he was having a great season.

    And in Bens case, I think holding his 3 missed games against him also doesn't make sense. He's a gamer. Most other QB's would've missed far more time with the injuries he has had.

    Then (at least I understand it that way) if he is the 61st best player there are 60 players they take to building a team around. Really? Are you kidding me?

    You know what's even sadder?

    I am a poet and for me spring does not exist

    relax, these ranking mean nothing.
    if you really believe that ben(and other steelers) are going to take this personal and really try to prove them wrong, then we got alot bigger issues to worry about
