Ben never knows if he'll get the time or not, Peyton is almost certain he will get the time.

    Difficult to assess how a different quarterback would operate with this O-line.

    Manning can make up for the deficiencies of the offensive line. he gets rid of the ball quick and is smart enough to not throw it to the other team.

    With this O line, Manning would be throwing it away so often that the guy sitting in the front row would have more receptions by the end of the season than any of our WRs.

    Could you imagine an OC sending out Cotchery and two rookie or first year receivers and Paulson and then telling Peyton to run an end around to Cotchery. Peyton would call timeout walk over to the OC and tell him he's an idiot, tell the head coach to fire him immediately and then go back to the huddle and run a play with a realistic chance of succeeding. That play would have never seen the light of day if Manning were the quarterback.

    that would about sum it up. I think our hurry up offense is MUCH more limited than Peyton's. And that's not a knock on Ben I just think that Peyton is given a lot more leeway and is more cerebral than Ben.

    With Peyton Manning, this O-line would be full of All Pros.

    but, it's a 12 win team with Bruce Arians calling plays...

    Manning has earned that by maintaining his professionalism off the field and being a leader in the locker room...

    Ben, thanks to some piss poor decision making over the years, still hasn't earned that yet...

    Perhaps he will, be he isn't there...

    And that's the problem. The Steelers could have moved on from Ben when all that happened, but they didn't. They kept him, so they should build around him.

    Holding grudges about things that happened years ago when it's clear the guy has matured says more about people like you than it does about Ben.

    Bullcrap! Ben's been to and WON more super bowls than Peyton - whether he's a jerk off the field or not, is irrelevant. His football ability has granted him permission to change plays and call out an OC as he sees fit. The difference is, the Rooneys won't have it. They wouldn't from Manning, either. Especially with a guy they hand picked to be OC.

    Normal teams don't go to the Super Bowl, then fire their OC - especially the guy who called plays in 2 of the last 3 super bowls at the time of his firing...

    That makes perfect sense, but some people can't let go of grudges from 2006 and 2010. Hell, the 2010 season wasn't even ruined.

    Not hard to see why Terry Bradshaw stays away from this city.
