Ben has long been a very, very good quarterback from a skill-level perspective. I think maybe ya'll are being too harsh on him. And he's maintained that through different eras of his team as players came and went which definitely deserves praise.
It's interesting that his best has seemingly come as his team is at its worst—because they're throwing all the time with their weak defense he's getting more credit even as they've been struggling (relatively). I think that says something about the way we evaluate QB play.
But not hof level good. Floated around the borderline top-5 for a few years now.
Also a scumbag, obviously.
Basically that KC team was dynamite offensively. They had that incredible playoff game vs. Indy, with the Dante Hall runback, where the defense could not get a single stop.
