Ben Roethlisberger

  • Is there any question that QB Ben Roethlisberger is the real deal? He clearly outdueled Tom Brady in the Steelers' win over New England. He made big plays in the passing game when he had to, and he "felt" the rush and moved around to buy time. He did not turn the ball over, and more importantly, he "milked" the clock in the second half, working the play clock down to zero on almost every play. This kid is something special.
