    hey, welcome to 2006. 2005 was last year. Why don't we look at the most relevant statistics, this years.
    When one is talking about whether the Steelers would have won the Superbowl last year without Ben, last years stats are relevant. Sorry.

    last years stats do matter. you cant just base everything on the few games he has played this year.
    Leave it to Windy to bring some reason to the debate.


    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

      I didn't bring the super bowl up. Whoever it is that voted for Ben came on here and claimed that because Ben won a superbowl, he is better than eli and rivers. I argued that his Superbowl win was irrelevant in case you didn't notice. :P

        You can in a way because this season the Steelers "opened up" the offense more for him and are just now allowing him to do more things that most NFL QBs do. For starters throwing more than 18 times a game. He has consistently shown in his career that when he has to throw the ball the amount of times most QBs have to, he is not very succesful.

        lets just call it even and meet up at ihop for a nice pancake dinner

                The steelers would have won that super bowl without ben. Don't bother arguing against that one.
                Lets see.

                In 2003 the Steelers went 6-10 and the only major offseason acquisition they got was Ben.

                In 2004 they went 15-1 and wen to the AFC Championship.
                In 2005 Ben dominated in the playoffs to take this team to the superbowl.

                I don't even feel like making you look like an idiot for a comment like that. Anyone with any knowledge off football would tell you the Steelers would have been a .500 team or worse had Maddox or Batch started for us last season.

                Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig

                  Like I said before they changed D coordinators the year they got Ben. That move was much bigger than bringing in Roethlisberger.

                  • Alright lets wrap this up.

                    I would rather have Eli because
                    1. He has proven his team can rely on him to win a game once in a while and that he can air it out with the best of them (McNabb)
                    2. This is not his first season starting, we have something to look back at, and he improved his one weakness from last year- Completion %.

                    Why i wouldn't want Rivers
                    1. He has a ton of talent around him similar to Big Ben in his first season, so he hasn't been in any pressure situations, where he must air it out to win a game
                    2. He's only played 5 games. The verdict is still out
                    3. He still has that unorthodox side armed, quarter armed delivery.

                    Why i wouldn't want Big Ben
                    1. Sure he won a superbowl, but instead of improving like Eli in his carear, he has gotten progressively worse.
                    2. Manager of the game. Any QB in the league could do better than him running that offense.
                    3. His off-field issues seem to have affected him greatly.

                    • Ben is playing horrible this year, but so is the rest of the team on offense. The wide recieving core is the worst in the league they aren't getting open, and when they get open they drop passes. The o-line is blocking poorly. Everything is just going wrong. Also Eli and Philip have better supporting casts then Ben.

                      That being said there is no excuse for Ben's play this year. He is throwing the same ints over and over again. But I don't think that can argue that he played great against Denver and Indy in the playoffs. However he has regressed to the point that he is playing like rookie. I'm still not ready to give up on him, its only his third year. If I had to start a franchise from scratch I might consider taking Ben over Eli and Philip just because of his ability to create something out of nothing. Although if I had to sign one of the guys as as a free agent I would probly grab Philip in a heart beat if I a had a good team to but around him. Rivers really impressed me against the steelers, but we did stop sending our rush in the second half. Eventhough I respect what Ben has done for the steelers franchise the NFL litterally changes dailey if your not getting better your regressing. In many ways your only as good as your last game I know thats sort sided but in Ben's case he hasn't played good football in 4 straight games. At this point this is how I see it.......but it could changed by mid season or next year.

                      • Giants fans are really homers. Holy crap, did you guys actually watch the playoffs last year? Your great Eli choked big time, while Ben had some very nice stats. Sure he had a bad superbowl, but if you watched it, he made plays when they counted. He has had a rough off season and has stared slow so far, but I guarantee, he will be back. Also I would say the giants have had alot better running game than the Steelers have had the last few years. Most of your arguments amount to nothing. Both are going to have nice careers, but right now, one qb has made a positive mark in the playoffw, and the other hasn't. Winning is what matters. So far, one has alot better winning % than the other.

                          Seriously...we're the homers? That was ridiculous. The Steelers had one of the best run games of the entire league the past 2 years. After I read that, that completely negates any argument you tried to put forth.

                          And yeah, us Giants fans are talking about Eli now...but are we any worse than everyone here jumping on the Rivers bandwagon after 4 games, and after 1 game of over 30 throws? Look at the poll, its ridiculous. I can't believe how many people hopped on the bandwagon. The same thing happened last year with Ben, now the same people are ripping him. Now everyone is on the Rivers bandwagon and watch, sooner or later the same people are gonna rip him.

                          I understand alot of people hate Eli for what he did in the draft, but I think also that everyone here is just trying to find a new excuse to discredit him. Now that his "accuracy" issues can't be used, now the Rivers bandwagon is a new way for people to stick it to him. Let the haters hate, the games will prove whos the best.

                          And seriously, the Panthers game...you cannot compare our team's talent that year at that time to the Steelers. Day and night difference.

                            THE STEELERS DO NOT HAVE THE WORST WR CORE IN THE NFL!!!!

                            I wouldn't even think about giving up on Ben yet, he is still a good QB with a very good future. He just got a tad overrated by banwagoners and his place as a young QB in the NFL are becoming realized. The question now is...can he adjust to the adjustments made against him in the way Eli has done. We'll have to sit back, wait, and see.

                              We had a great dominating line in 2004. Not so much in 05. And line has picked up thier iconsistant play this year. If you watched the playoffs we needed to pass to set up the run.

                                Are wides outs are awfull. Hines is a quasi number 1. THe rest of the wide outs are number 3s right now at best. Cedrick Wilson blows he looks for pass interference calls before the ball even reaches him. Nate Washington is very iconsistent. Santonio is awfull and will surely be a bust.
