I voted Cutler, no reason except I am a homer. But I wouldn't mind Ben.

Worthlessburger is average. Game would be lost minus that 100 yard pick.

love Cutler but he needs to stop comparing himself to Elway. It only gets him into trouble.

Ben R. is the new Brady. He's a guy that football fans will call average for many years until there's just so much data you can't ignore it any longer.

He's probably a future HOF QB and yet another example that big, fancy stats mean jack ****.

Ben played pretty good on two drives but the fact is, he wont be winning superbowls on a team with a lesser defense.

He's not a great QB, but he is a good one.

Eh thats one of the biggest overreaction in recent Denver sports history. The writer himself said he had to ask Cutler 10 different ways if was better than Elway and when he finally answered he had a smile and was tongue in cheek.

I have been critical of Cutler but it irks me that so much was made of that interview. Especially when Cutler regularly speaks with Elway seeking advice and guidance.

Wrong, he will fall victim to the inverse of what Denver players fall victim too. Unless he wins 2 more and gets an MVP he will be labeled as a product of defense. Just like Denver players will be labeled as a product of Elway.

WTF is with people randomly inciting drama on this board.... he compared himself to Elway ONCE when he was ASKED about his arm strength vs Elway's. Who the **** cares. I would take Cutler over Ben any day.

I've been around Ben and before the wreck he was a punk. Now he still has flashes os a-hole, but the guy has grown so much and he play shows.

He was Elway like today and really has been most of the season.

I want to see Jay grow up here soon and hopefully Josh will tutor him in being a real leader.

Until Big Ben can complete a pass without first shaking off four defenders and running around for 4 minutes, I will always think of him as mediocre. He's just not that good.

Cutler doesn't make big plays in critical moments. Big Ben does. That is the big difference between the two.

Big Ben reminds so much of Elway it just isnít fair. heís not quit as athletic as john was, but they are both cut from the same cloth. both got big time arms. both can extend the plays. both can will there team to a win. Ben is a HOF qb.

This is just an insane post... sorry but Ben plays like Elway.

Elway was Ben's favorite NFL QB. Your post is a slap in the face of everything Elway was for this franchise.

You can hate the Steelers, but damn give the guy credit for what he does out there.

Insane post out of pure hate...wow just stupid.

There's a reason why Ben wears #7

Ben is just average. But football is still a team game, and he's been able to get it done in Pittsburgh.

Okay. You think Ben Roethlisberger is a superior pocket passer? Elway could make crazy plays happen, but I remember The Drive being mostly from the pocket and scrambles. Not running around until someone gets open. That's not being an elite NFL QB, that's playing Madden.

He takes a ton of sacks, has a bad TD/INT ratio, and has an awesome defense to bail him out when he has games like he did against Washington this year.

And you are an Idiot , Elway did it with no run game piss poor defense , I dont worship Elway , in fact i will call him a drunk cause he is , but to claim big ben does it like Elway did is crap ......... what people remember about Elway , and how Elway played are 2 different things , But Elway led sub par teams to a SB ...... Big ben isnt even close to that

I'm no fan of the Steelers or Roethlisberger but this is a ridiculous, preposterous statement. It's about making plays, and he makes them. He's easily a top 10, and perhaps top 5, QB right now. There really isn't any logical, rational argument against this.
