Number 3.....give me a break.  what does Ben have to do to "ascend" to the elite QB's?  isn't he there already?  Are we going to hear about his game manangement skills all season again or will he break through for the rest of the country to see....

I thought going 15-1 in his rookie year followed by a super bowl win and a pro bowl nod might qualify as elite, but i guess I'm wrong.

True.

When Ben plays cornhole, it's with someone like Natalie Gulbis.


Scroll down for Palmer's tourney news.

Carson Palmer Cornhole Classic

Do you think the first time he saw the game of Cornhole, he was disappointed that it wasn't something else?

Another completely harmless website with a terribly dirty name (photo contest).

 no, no, no...  A product of the system.  A game manager.  A ball-hander offerer.  Not elite.

Do OCs call QB sweeps on 3rd and 6 with the season on the line when they've got an elite QB?

Then again, does a team give 100 million plus to a non-elite QB?

Remember, this is also the same team that appears (from all published reports) ready to bench a transitioned OT to the tune of 7 million and change.

Some of the decisions this team has been making lately really make you wonder what the fuck is going on behind that curtain.

I think the article is right, untile Ben and the Steelers go deep in the playoffs again, he won't be categorized with Manning and Brady.  

Since Pittsburgh is known as a "running team" untile he has more success, he publicly won't get the credit of having a top rating despite getting pummelled (SP) more than any other QB.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.
