Big Ben – “Best Money Quarterback In Football” …..

January 13, 2009 |

Okay ….. now before you burn my house to the ground, lets be clear about one thing ….. these are not my words.  Nope, not a chance.  While I respect the heralded Steelers quarterback, I’m still accepting he couldn’t carry lunch pails for Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and a few others.

These words were actually written by Mark Madden, in yesterday’s edition of the Beaver County Times.  Are you freakin’ kidding me ….. the Beaver County Times ???  Where does the next bit of propoganda come from ….. the Opossum Run Press ???  The Beaver County Times – that is killing me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not dismissing Roethlisberger as some irrelevant chump – he’s a winner – and nobody will deny that.  If the game is on the line with 2 minutes to go, on Sunday, I don’t want it in his hands.  That said, I would feel worse if it was in Manning’s or Brady’s hands, in the same situation.

I’m not giving Mark Madden much credibility, anyway.  His entire article is littered with little bits and pieces of “Anti Ravens” garbage.  In fact, he even asks “who said the Ravens were a good team?”  Well, I haven’t seen many BAD teams showing up for a Conference Championship game.

In the end, I’ll buy into Drew Forrester’s wisdom ….. this guy and his views have no impact on what happens on the field, this Sunday.  The Baltimore Ravens will be in Pittsburgh, for the AFC Championship Game.  And, for 60 minutes, “Mr. Money Ball” will have to deal with the fiercest defense in the game.

Speaking of money, I don’t bet.  But, if I did ….. it would be on a guy named Joe.  I sooooo can’t wait to read Mark Madden’s article, on “Purple Monday”, in the Beaver County Times.  That name still kills me …..
