Big Ben better than Eli in quarterback matchup
Maybe Eli Manning can show me up by playing a super game today and leading his New York Giants to a road win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, but I don't think he's in Ben Roethlisberger's class as an NFL ...

I'll take Eli thank you. Remember steelers won there SBXL "in spite" of Big Ben not because of him.

Remember Donald, Steelers got to the Superbowl because of Big Ben- Wins over 1, 2, 3 seeds with a passer rating of over 100. Steelers don't even sniff the SB let alone get there without Bens Imaculate tackle on Bettis fumble in Indy.
Yesterday's Giant win was another example of how good Eli has it behind the best offensive line in football and one of the top 5 defenses. While Eli is standing back and surveying the field, Ben runs for his life. Switch the QB's and the Giants win by about 21 after leading fom the get go.

Just another example of why stats don't mean anything. Eli wins games in pressure situations. He doesn't get sacked because he gets rid of the ball every time - unlike Ben.

L: Big Ben
I think the results speak for themselves.

Look both of them are good QBs, Eli had a better game than Ben, Anderson of the browns had a better game than Eli a week or so back. It's just one game. I saw the difference in the game at O-line. The giants o-line did a way better job of pass protect. To his credit Eli got the ball out of his hands faster than ben. I lay most of the blame on the steeler OC. he calls a crappy game and fails to adjust when things don't work out. Did we see the steelers throw one screen to slow down the pass rush? Rant over. Good game by the giants.
