    Ben Roethlisberger – A Historical Perspective
    http://stillers.com/articles/2167.aspx

    FTA (a la CHFF)

    The article is decent, comparing the first four years of the contemporary great QBs. The only problem I have with it is the fact that they start keeping score for Brady in 2000, when he rode the bench. Also, the article ignores Lombardis.

    Ben's a good QB. You can argue against it, but you'd be wrong. The guy's a solid player and is proving it this season now that he's completely healthy. This is a organization guy, class act, and a player that most fans would love to have on their team.

    I knew the article was questionable as soon as I saw the first 2 words you quoted...

    "It’s has been a hotly debated topic..."

    And that was from a professional writer? WOW:rolleyes:

    Add to that the fact this guy counted Brady's rookie year and it's obvious he purposefully slanted the aricle to make Steeler fans feel good. For example, ALL statistical comparisons need to compared on a level playing field. First 3 years doesn't cut it since a guy could ride the bench for his first 3 years. So all the comparisons should be on a per game basis. In other words if Ben has played in 48 games to date, he should be compared to all other QB's first 48 games.

    yeah, he is still better than brady for those stats in that time period if you start brady's stat count at 01. i have a thread about that elsewhere on this site.
