    It's not such a bad thing to compliment your opponent when he deserves it. Normally they do deserve it. It's the bitterness of losing that sometimes stops them. In Ben's case they sort of knew they could treat this game as throw away. And it was in Foxboro. And they may figure, what the hell, it's the Patriots' year anyway. I mean this is, after all, an amazing display of football.

    I'd say that we may never see such a thing again, but I don't think that is true. This team is actually built to last.

    Rothlesburger is a tough SOB, and he's the best QB to come out of that 1st round draft class. Nice words on his part.

    I've always felt like Big Ben's a huge Brady fan. I've read him say good things about Tom numerous times. Good for him, that's the spirit. Crying and whining won't take you anywhere.

    Big Ben is probably the QB I respect the most all-around (outside of TB of course). Good game, the guy's a leader, a champion, a good teammate and a gutsy ballplayer. He may have bonehead moments but he's his own QB and he has a pretty good track record so far. If his QB smarts ever catch up to his physical talents, watch out.

    NO doubt... he's a professional in every sense of the word. Even last year, he never used his health as an excuse... the guy will man up and admit when he's been beaten. Also, it doesn't take a 20 year veteran scout to see that Brady is the man...

    Mike Reiss had a bit more of that interview, I gained some respect for Ben when I read it:

    Yeah. Ben has always been a big Brady fan.

    And that's to his credit, because it isn't OBVIOUS that Brady is the one to copy. Ben's physical style is much different (and more reckless) than Tom's. So kudos to Ben for recognizing what really matters even so.

    Yea, I gotta say - TB is playing friggin unbelievably well. Period. There's a reason the pats are 13-0 and it starts with him.

    While part of me hates acknowledging that I don't mind saying it because it's obvious.

    Roethlisberger is the most frustrating QB to root against; everytime a play breaks down there's seemingly a 90% chance of it ending in a big play. Once he escaped Mike Wright did anyone doubt the play was going to end up a TD?

    Roethlisberger is classy (just ask LT :singing: ). No really he is....... Much as I dislike the sqealers, I do respect him. Part of me wonders just how a guy like him handles someone like that turd Smith. Roethlisberger, knowing what he knows about TB and leadership, musta wanted to punch the d!ck in the nose after that whole "guarentee" BS.

    Is this really a Pats board? I'm shocked. Objective opinions on Ben. You will be surprised, but I never heard that much praise of Ben on a Steeler board.

    are you kidding? the way i look at it, before this year, whenever the manning vs brady argument came up, as a pats fan i always said "stats smats, look at wins". with that argument, ben is a top qb in this league. you guys really bash him that much?
    i do have to admit though, as a steelers-hater, i laughed at his motorcycle misfortunes :D
