Polian puts Ben 'up there with Brady, Manning'

People who hate the Steelers will tell you that Ben Roethlisberger is the "greatest game manager of all-time." Steelers fans, upon hearing that, will throw things at whoever said it. And those black-and-gold fanatics are probably right -- Ben's a hell of a football player and ridiculously talented quarterback.

And he garnered some pretty specific praise from Bill Polian, President of the Colts, who happens to know a thing or two about decent quarterbacks.

"Bottom line, if you ask football people, they're going to put Ben Roethlisberger up there with [Manning and Brady] almost unanimously," Polian told Sam Farmer of The Los Angeles Times. "No one would leave him out. And others who have made the Pro Bowl, for example, wouldn't even get consideration if you took a poll of all 32 general managers."

Before you get upset that Polian insulted your quarterback, make sure to remember that in this day and age, 75 percent of the NFL makes the Pro Bowl, so you shouldn't be too terribly worried about whether or not your quarterback's better than Roethlisberger. (Unless that was a shot at Philip Rivers, in which case it's a little awkward.)

But the fact remains that Ben is in fact an elite quarterback. He's one of the six best quarterbacks in the NFL -- Brady, Manning, Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, Ben and Aaron Rodgers comprise an arguable list of top-end signal callers.

And that list might get a lot more solidified (or maybe LESS solidified??) depending on what happens at the Super Bowl.
