Ben Roethlisberger - NFL's most overrated quarterback - worse than Carson Palmer in golf too
Ben Roethlisberger was back stumbling around the huddle Monday night, giving another lesson in why he’s the most overrated quarterback in NFL history. Big Ben completed 17 of 32 passes for a whopping 141 yards and two interceptions, led the Steelers to zero points.
And Steeler fans are just about dumb enough to name another sandwich after him for it.
Roethlisberger really makes that offense go, huh? A week earlier with career journeyman Charlie Batch at the helm, Pittsburgh only put up 28 points in a win over Miami. And Batch threw for three touchdowns - Ben’s total in a typical month.
But what does this have to do with golf you ask?
Simple. Roethlisberger goes up against the quarterback who’s better than him in just about everything - including golf - this Sunday. That would be Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer, a man who can actually throw touchdown passes in bunches (Ben considers bunches two). And outbirdie Roethlisberger too boot.
Palmer put up 22 points in the modified Stableford scoring system. Roethlisberger limped in with nine points. Sounds like their typical touchdown difference ratio come to think of it.
For more on NFL golfers stay tuned to TravelGolf.com throughout this season and into January. You’ll get interviews with Palmer, Roethlisberger, top coaches like Herm Edwards and Mike Shanahan, and even some tough words from former fantasy king Marshall Faulk. Here’s new NBC voice Sterling Sharpe talking about why he was “a prick” when he played and his golf game.
And here’s a sneak peak at the Palmer interview:
Q: You said in Sports Illustrated that you hate the Steelers. Yet you and Ben spent a lot of time talking on the range …
Palmer: I said I hated the Steelers, not Ben.
Why would Carson Palmer hate Ben Roethlisberger? Dumb question on my part. Having Roethlisberger at quartberback is a bonus for the Bengals. If Ryan Leaf was on the Steelers, he could be having Ben Roethlisberger’s career.
The Steelers carried Big Ben last year. Everyone starts to see more of that on Sunday. Of course, Steeler fans will just have another sandwich of denial.

I think your article bashing Ben Roethelisberger really stinks. I think maybe you're the one with the fever. Any team in the NFL would be thrilled to have a quarterback like Ben. No one should have expected him to play 100 % with what he has been through, and with all that playing time he has had this year. The defense of the jaguars was outstanding. Any quarterback would have had a difficult time, even your overrated quarterback Carson Palmer. Maybe you should change your profession because you are a poor writer who doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground.Jerk.
You are the bee's knees man. A very cool dude.
I would marry you, but I ain't a homo.
Rothlesberger is a butt-wiper.
doofus and the most overrated, mediocre
quarterback in the NFL today. As I
always say, OFFENSE sells the tickets,
DEFENSE wins the game. Ben didn't win
the Superbowl for the Steelers last year,
the Steeler defense did.
