    Re: Is Ben Roethlisberger An Elite Quarterback ?

    [quote user="flamethrower"]Hate to say it, but he is Elite. Top 10. I personally place him at #5.
    Drew Breez is #1
    Aaron Rodgers is #2
    Eli Manning is #3
    Tom Brady is #4
    Roethlisberger is #5
    Matt Scaubb is #6 He would be higher, but can't stay healthy.
    Drew Stanton is #7
    Then you have a Huuuge drop off.

    Re: Is Ben Roethlisberger An Elite Quarterback ?

    [quote user="flamethrower"]Well he threw for over 5,000 yards last season. And for the First time in ages the Lions made the Playoffs. He is on there more for what he "Potentially" can do. Rather than what he has done. And Only Marino, Breez, and Stanton can say that they threw for over 5,000 yards in a season.

    He has had one of the worst offensive lines around him in his tenure in the league and he has still been to three super bowls. When I look at him, I think that he is as much a Steeler as guys like Hines Ward and Jerome Bettis ever were. Who cares if he is an elite quarterback, he is the right guy for that team.

    No. He is typically ranked high for what he has done rather than for what he actually is-- and what he has done was greatly aided by the Steeler's stout defense.

    Wouldn't call him elite by any means, but he can get the job done for the Steelers so that's all that really matters.

    Depending how Peyton plays next year, I'd rank him about 6th overall.

    Side note, for the people ranking Peyton anything lower than two, is that based on the assumption that he will not return to form this coming season?

    I know you're a Texans fan and all, but do you really believe Matt Schaub is the 6th best QB in the league?

    Re: Is Ben Roethlisberger An Elite Quarterback ?

    My Top 10 entering into next season would be:

    1) Aaron Rodgers
    2) Tom Brady
    3) Drew Brees
    4) Eli Manning
    5) Tony Romo
    6) Matthew Stafford
    7) Philip Rivers
    8) Ben Roethlisberger
    9) Matt Schaub
    10) Peyton Manning (only putting him here because I'm not sure what he's gonna look like after his surgery - but I'm pretty sure he'll still be somewhere on this list)
