Michael Wilbon: What's great about Ben Roethlisberger is that he consistently makes good decisions, like throwing the ball out of bounds or counting down the play clock smoothly.

Tony Kornheiser :And he's willing to be a rookie even though nobody has beaten him yet. He doesn't stand around saying, "Now I'm John Elway. Now I'm Brett Favre." He stays in the context of his team's system. Great for the Steelers but bad for other QBs. The bar is so high for Eli Manning, Craig Krenzel, John Navarre.
