I have no affection for Ben Roethlisberger. I like him as a QB and thats it. I think he can play.

And I'm sure your daughters would never find themselves in that situation. I know my daughters (and I have 3) wouldn't as well.
The bottom line is that I don't want to know what these guys do in their private lives. Just go play.
Getting back to football, Ben is very mobile in the pocket and behind the LOS in general. What he does is what most great QB's do. They move to create time and are constantly looking downfield to find the open guy. He doesn't just look once and tuck it and run.

Regular season is not about winning the Superbowl as much as being able to get into the playoffs first.
Teams will run their mobile QBs, read option offense, because that's going to be effective in winning a game and getting a W against a team with a mediocre LB core. The perennial playoff losing teams will never pity teams that don't get into the playoffs, deserving or not.
If u say Steve Young then u have to include Rodgers he runs just as much as he did
