Big Ben IS an elite QB. I'm tired of this shit. He IS. Fuck, in his first two seasons the Steelers went:

15-1
11-5 and a Super Bowl.

(best two seasons by a QBack EVER, nonetheless the first two seasons)

And he threw us through the AFC playoffs. Period. He threw us though Cincy, Denver, Indy. He was less than stellar in the SB, granted, but he ended up the youngest to win it.

And then the third season he was damn near killed, THEN had an emergency appendecotmy, then a concussion, and he was rushed back too soon and the team STILL finished 8-8. His yards/attempt are 3rd best IN HISTORY. In HISTORY. And never mind his seemingly-Elway-esque ability to come back.

I'm sick and tired of Ben not being considered an elite QB.

Take a look at this article:

WHOOPS. Should have said "best FIRST two seasons" by a QB ever, not best two seasons by a QB period.  Got all excited and overstated.

He certainly can pull up his passer rating even further this year, bouncing back from last.  And even with all yesterday's drops he still had ~7 YPA.

Also, look up Ben and Brady's ages.  At Ben's equivalent, Wunderkind Brady had one ring as well.  Not saying Ben will win as many as Brady, but he's got much more potential playing time.

4 TD's on 12 comlpletions.

1 TD 33% of the time on completions.  Just Incredible.
