Steelers Fans, Who Cares Where They Rank Ben Roethlisberger?

I think Steelers fans have an obsession.  And it has nothing to do with the Menden-hump. Although that is hilarious

Moments after defeating a die hard New York Jets football team for yet another trip to the Super Bowl, the Pittsburgh talk shows lit up with the same old questions about Ben Roethlisberger.

“Yinz think Ben will get some respect now from those writers who don’t think Ben ranks as an elite QB like Brady and Manning?”

Who cares.  Seriously.  What’s with the obsession about Bens’ ranking?

Ben gets it done.   Ben does what so many QB in the league can only dream about.  Look at what he has done in his career.  It’s tremendous.  You know it.  ‘They’ know it. 

He’s a different guy.  Look at some of the things we have covered about Ben in the past couple years:


In spite of grown men who covered their faces with bandanas earlier this season at Heinz Field when Ben returned from being suspended by Roger Goodell,  Ben got it done.

Ben Roethlisberger loves a challenge. From being the first quarterback to go 13-0 during his rookie season in the NFL to being the youngest quarterback to win a Super Bowl, to leading his Steeler team on the game winning 78 yard, eight play drive to win Super Bowl XLIII, Roethlisberger has shown the ability to succeed despite all odds.  Ben gets it done.

Another example was Ben’s  scorecard from Bethpage Black as part of the Golf Digest US Open Challenge. An 81.  Your favorite QB is also a solid golfer with future aspirations at taking this game to the next level.

Another challenge, another impressive result.

[From Big Ben Can Host WWE Raw And Your QB Can't :]

Big Ben Roethlisberger was a guest host for WWE Raw  in Wilkes Barre,  because  Tom Brady is too well let’s call it ‘western’ for the show. (Although some people think wrestiling is fake and they cheat to win, so Brady could fit right in)

Big Ben was in the top 10 most handsome QBs according to some jackass handsome meter in the Wall St Journal. The list also included Matt Ryan, Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Hasselback, Kerry Collins, Phillip Rivers, Kurt Warner, come on…Do you really think your QB would put himself in a situation where he might break a nail and get removed from the most handsome list?

Hell No!

Eli Manning or Peyton Manning hosting WWE?  The Mannings, are you kidding? Ugh…even Vince McMahon doesn’t need any more heels. Besides the Mannings’ are too busy licking cookies with Donald Trump. The Mannings’ like to be the symbols of the best cookie cream lickers in the world.. Just ask Oreo! OK, neither has been linked to ANY ladies and they are not married. Nothing wrong with that…

Tony Romo is almost as good on the golf course as Ben, but in the squared circle? Nah, it would never happen. The matches should at least look interesting and Tony falls to pieces when things get interesting, right?

Joe Flacco? Ditto. Choke artists are for MMA.

Donovan McNabb, Chad Pennington and Carson Palmer would get hurt walking out of the dressing room.

Phillip Rivers can do some serious acting and he may be great with a microphone. But this video of him getting hurt by a phantom might not look great on WWE Raw, even though WWE does a better job of faking it.

Jay Cutler? Stick to bodybuilding or maybe just quit.  Everything.

Drew Brees is way too nasty to be on well…you know what, perhaps he could don a Lucha Libre mask. Nah, never mind it would never get over that huge…..

What? I forgot your team’s QB? No. I. Didn’t. Your QB

A.)Doesn’t matter when the Steelers D gets their hands on him.


C.) Refer to A


And Big Ben’s charity is cooler than your QB’s too. Way cooler. Big Ben 7 Foundation.  


So we urge you Steelers fans, don’t stress where Ben Roethlisberger is ranked right now.  Just enjoy where Ben Roethlisberger is right now, because Ben isn’t done.
