    I'm looking forward to a MNF whuppin' of the Colts!! However, I can't honestly say it's gonna happen. After watching the Steelers in Baltimore last week I just hope a different team shows up Monday. I think the key to the game for Pittsburgh is to keep Manning from reading their defensive set. They are pretty good at that already but he is one of a kind when it comes to picking it up at the line and adjusting.

    Ben is probably going to be rusty early on and I'm sure Indy will be gunning for him so I hope he gets better protection than Maddox got last week.

    Guess I'm taking the thread off track so that's all...

    Oh yeah, IPB - you are correct:

    There'll never be another Brett Favre

    Big Ben is on a different team where they can run the ball, he also has his best recievers in the game. Big Ben can not win a game on his own but I believe Favre can and does and that is what makes him great.

    Raider: is your question -- who would you take right now? Simple answer to your simple question -- Brett Favre in a heart beat

    You say that yesterday is history - which is of course correct. Equally true is the fact that no one is promised tommorow.

    Big Ben is protected by a "run first and second, and pass only in short yardage situations and win games with your defense" system and still has missed a number of games to injuries.

    If the question is who would you want to be your QB today -- any sane football person would pick Brett Favre.

    If the question is who would you want for your QB 4 or more years down the road -- assuming they are still playing the answer would be different.

    Big Ben may or may not be in the league down the road. As for his winning -- which he deserves props for -- Dilfer won a Super Bowl with a similar type system, would you take him over Brett Favre too?

    RP..

    Here's a twist for you....

    I would give ANYTHING for Manning to be the successor to Brett Favre..(whenever that is...2-3 years down the road...)

    ELI MANNING....

    Let me tell you something....in a couple of years....everyone is going to forget all about Big Ben and his brother Peyton...because ELI is going to be better then them ALL....

    (that kid has what it takes...he has the tools....)

    (He is the most "FARVE-LIKE" of any of the rookie QB's that I have seen.....Mark my words..!)

    Hey, get in line.:mrgreen: I already brought up Manning! I definitely think he was the right guy at #1 over all there though.
