    We were 8- and couldnt beat Miami or San Diego at home but we would throw 5 TDs on Seattle? Have we thrown 4 TDs on any team this year?

    Twice, in a 3 week span (which lead to Ben being named offensive player of the month for November).

    In a 55-31 loss in New England on 11-3-13, Ben's stat line was 28-48 for 400 yards, 4 TD's and 2 INT's.

    In a 37-27 win vs. Detroit on 11-17-13, Ben's stat line was 29-45 for 367 yards, 4 TD's and 0 INT's.

    Save for ONE DRIVE Ben has been nothing special in 3 Superbowls against average to BAD defenses.
    Peyton got picked twice, that is a typical SB for Ben against average players.

    Against a great defense? We would get crushed, Ben throws multiple picks against these ball hawks.

    Ben could however make more plays than Manning did for the reasons Flippy gives. But he would make plenty of mistakes looking at his history.
    You're thinking of 'old' Roethlisberger, and I agree.

    But I would really like to see how the 'new' Roethlisberger does in the big game. The one that is willing to take what a defense gives him but also is looking for the big play on every down. THAT would be tough to defend. Manning is all about pre-snap reads. Roethlisberger isn't.

    Packers were ranked No.2 Defense,Seattle was 7th ranked. Not sure i will call those Defense average or BAD defense.

    Ben plays in AFC North which would have helped him take on Seattle Defense.
    Steelers Draft
    Rd 1: Mike Evans - WR
    Rd 2: Kyle Van Noy - ILB/OLB
    Rd 3c: Philip Gaines - CB
    Rd 4: Taylor Hart - DE
    Rd 5: Justin Ellis - DT
    Rd 5c:Xavier Grimble -TE

    Haha, you said it. I would dread a matchup with this SEA team in the SB, because they would beat us, and they would have done it "Pittsburgh Steeler" style. They would've mugged us, in a rout.

To me, it looked like a typical football game behind the Steelers O-line. I've seen Ben routinely have less time before the rush gets to him than PM faced on Sunday.

    Seattle made Peyton look like YA Tittle at the end of his career. No way anybody makes Ben look that way. Like Bart Scott says ....

    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    Ben had 1 great drive in 3 SB's...

    I'm not saying Ben would look like Peyton but I doubt he looks like Montana.

    with the right personnel decisions yea.. and, as has been mentioned... we will have to find a few of those pieces via free agency... with immediate impact potential (on the defensive side of the ball). I doubt there will be two runs (before ben is through) if we try to address those needs solely by the draft.
