Ok, I'm gonna file this one under "overreaction." Sure, we're all displeased with Big Ben's inadequacy. But sometimes, a step back helps. I can justify sitting him. He probably needs that. But calling him Tommy Maddox? Really?
#1 - Ben Roethlisberger ≠ Tommy Maddox
There's about 11 years, 20 pounds and like 8000 interceptions that say so. Although as Ape said last night, "he's approaching Kordell territory in terms of frequency of game-killing turnovers."
#2 - "Raisins" = one of the dumbest nicknames I've ever heard
You may call them any number of names, but "Raisins" is off the board.
#3 - Joe Flacco is not > Ben Roethlisberger
You must either be delusional or an overly-proud alumnus of THE University of Delaware if you can follow this line of thinking (and don't look at me).
All Star, indeed.
