Big Ben has never gotten the credit he deserves
Big Ben clinched another AFC North title with a ridiculous 500-yard passing performance against the Ravens, but even though he’s won multiple Super Bowls and put up massive stats over an absurdly long period of time, he’s been overshadowed at every point his career by other quarterbacks who with more national appeal.
Early in his career, Roethlisberger was overshadowed by Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, and now he’s taken a back seat to a new crop of young QB’s that have grabbed the spotlight.
Sure, he’s never hosted SNL, and doesn’t have massive endorsement deals, but his on-field body of work is as good as anyone not named Tom Brady, and deserves to be acknowledged.
