Re: Roethlisberger jersey is NFL's top seller
I had the pleaure of watching him play at Miami for three years, and while I am biased, I'm pretty confident in saying that he was easily the most physically gifted quarterback in last years draft, and probably the year before as well. He has the size and athleticism to be successful, as well as a big arm and he's extremely intelligent when it comes to recognizing coverages and blitzes. He'll be the best QB to come out of that draft and any team that passed on him will regret it.
That's not to say that he's carrying the Steelers, but he still has to make the throws and decisions that win ballgames. It's not his fault that they've surrounded him with good players, so I think the "overrated" tag is unfair.
