The Monday Hangover: Big Ben's time has come

Here are a few items from the article that I liked:

Quote
few fans truly appreciate the historic productivity that has marked his short career. Like many of the game

Q: What's the difference between "hard" and "light"?
A: You can sleep with a light on.

It boggles my mind that some people try as hard as they do to bash the accomplishments that he has done in his short career.

The idea that he only wins because of the system is ludacris. For people that watch the games, you can clearly see that we win based on his ability to convert third down so efficiently. Put Joey Harrington at QB, and this team does not win anything.

And people forget so quickly how it was his arm that took us to the Super Bowl. If not for the quick leads that the passing game gave us in those playoffs, #5 would not have happened.

Even last year, he was not at this best, but really only because of the INTS, (many of which came right after injuries). His passing yards and percentages were still quite good.

To say he sucks isnt right, but when u throw those stats around it almost comes off as saying Ben is one of the greatest QB's of all time which he is far from.

But he is only starting his 4th year...Already has a season where he led the team to 13-0 mark and AFC Championship appearance and has won a Super Bowl. Pretty damn great start to a career. He is not the best in the NFL yet, but he does have the potential to be the next Brett Favre (with more Super Bowls) IMO.
