You could tell this season that the age was a factor. He looked great and then late in the season he just started to play poorly. Regardless what he did for the Jets he was a legend and is a soon to be hall of famer.

As for big Ben he is nothing more then a mediocre QB at best. How a guy could pass for 6 for 17 110 yards for 99% of a football game and still win the game baffles me. Then do it week after week.

Agreed and agreed.

Big Ben is one tough SOB though, ya gotta give him that. The guy seems to find a way to stay on his feet and make plays, and he's got two rings which is kinda hard to argue with.

Even if the refs did hand him both games...oops did I say that out loud...

Now, thats not to say that he is not a great QB, but when you think of the QBs who have been able to do it more than once, and think of their performances, Big Ben don't sit so high up on the list, IMO.

now don't beat me up to badly!
LOL....

I'll take a mediocre QB who brings home 2 rings over a great QB with none any day

I think Ben is a very good QB... not amazing, certainly not one of the elite but definitely above average... quite a bit above IMO.

The reason I think people don't give Ben credit is because he's not a conventional QB. He's not a pocket passer who's going to rack up yards... he's a gamer, he makes something out of nothing, he scrambles, buys time and finds receivers better then anybody in the league in my opinion. Our O line has sucked in the last few seasons and our offense is never going to put up 300 yards passing. It never has... that's not Steeler football.

Now factor in things like decision making etc... I think he's well above medioce. And contrary to what some bitter fans say... the Steelers have never been handed a Lombardi trophy. We certainly don't win pretty all the time.... but we've earned all 6 even if the haters don't want to give us credit.

With that said, I hope he enjoyes retirement. I'm sure it'll be fun not having to worry about a linbacker or big defensive guy sneaking up on him.
he very well could have took them to the SB look at his DIV this year the PATS lost Brady that left it wide open but who would of thought the worst team a year ago the 1-15 dolphins would have made the playoffs this year. when playoffs come around it's a new season what you did in the regular season dont amount to anything now just ask the PAT fans.
