Roethlisberger Hate Fest Continues

Currently on ESPN.com, there is a poll that asks which Superbowl QB would you rather have: Kurt Warner or Big Ben? Kurt Warner is winning in every state except of course PA. Who in their right mind would rather have Warner? Yes he has won a Superbowl and been to two others but he is 37 years old. He is a statue back there. Ben is great at avoiding pressure and making plays with his legs. Another question is why does Ben continue to not get any respect? He is the Rodney Dangerfield of football. What more do people want from the guy? All he has done is win. He already has one ring, and could have another a week from tonight. He is only 26 mind you. This year he has had no running game, and a shoddy offensive line, yet has still lead us to a 12-4 record and two playoff wins. He has brought us back from behind numerous times. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

I have a thought: the media and fans are idiots. All they look at is stats. In their minds, if you pass for over 300 yds. per game, you're a star. Look at Drew Brees, league Offensive Player of The Year. Great stats, but what has he won? Ben is #1 in the only stat that counts, winning.

Agreed. The media is a fickle bitch. Then again, there are a couple guys giving praise. Clark Judge at CBS Sports and Michael Wilbon at the Washington Post wrote articles about the greatness of Big Ben.
