He has also continuously improved as the offense has put more on his shoulders year after year. I swear people still remember XL and think that was an accurate representation of his ability
That and people don't like him personally so his accomplishments are downplayed. It's fine, Pitt fans know how much success he has brought to the team and how important he is
I think Big Ben is a very good quarterback. Top 10 for sure.
My problem with Big Ben is the fact that people are ready to anoint him as a Hall of Famer simply because of the rings. I think Ben is good. But at no point has he ever been a top 5 quarterback, only been to 2 Pro Bowls and never been an All Pro. I think the HOF is reserved for the best of the best, and IMO, Ben has never been that....rings or not.
