I have this guy at work who is easily excitable, in a funny way, for me at least, so I like to torment him on his beloved Steelers. In particular Big Ben, whom he seems to have a man crush on. So we got ino it pretty good this morning regarding Ben. I couldn't wait to lambaste Ben (for the record I'm a Steelers fan, I just love getting this guy fired up) for a crappy performance against Tennesee, he couldn't wait to lambaste me for lambasting Ben with, "Did you hear Phil Simms yesterday? He thinks Ben should be a serious MVP candidate."

Now I did hear Simm's comments and was perplexed to say the least. I think Ben is a top QB in this league, but I'm not getting the "intangibles" argument that his proponents keep throwing out there regarding his MVP candidacy. Yes, he's stolen a few games with his late game heroics, but I can't get over his poor TD/Int numbers and low QB rating. Yes, he's a victim of a substandard OL and the running game has suffered for it, but I'd make Harrison an MVP over Big Ben.

Thoughts?

Ask yourself this..who could the Steelers not afford to be without of the line up for a long term?
