BEN IS ELITE

Written By Jayden Matthews and Melissa Fetty

Well there is a lot of talk about Ben not being Elite and this and that.  Well this is a little bit of info that I think does put him right up there.  Joe Montana is considered one of the Greats.  Bens stats in his first seven years are eerily in comparison.   Stats do not lie folks.  I have always looked at Ben as one of the Great ones in the league right now. Top five easy, even with that joke of a list on NFL Network.  Ben is a proven winner and this shows what I and alot of Steeler fans already know .
