Ben Roethlisberger destroys Joe Flacco in a Baltimore newspaper poll
In my eyes, there is no question that Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is still the best in the AFC North, and most certainly still better than Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens. I have been called a biased homer for this being a Steelers fan, especially since Flacco won a Super Bowl and signed a gigantic contract extension. However, the Baltimore Sun recently asked a poll question about who the better quarterback is of the two. Being Baltimore based, one would think Flacco easily won this matchup just because the newspaper is in his own city, right?
As of 9:30pm last night, Big Ben held a 95% to 5% lead in the vote, and ended up winning the poll by a similar margin:
Now, it is 100% possible that Steeler Nation rallied together and showed everyone just why they call us a Nation. Any contest between the Steelers and Ravens will have Steelers fans coming out in droves. At the same time, I am thoroughly confused as to why Flacco didn’t receive more votes simply because this poll was conducted by a NEWSPAPER IN BALTIMORE. At the end of the day, the poll is correct. Roethlisberger is the better quarterback. I just don’t know if he’s 95% to 5% better.
