NFL Elite Player vs. Elite Player: Peyton Manning vs. Ben Roethlisberger

In the NFL today, there are a small number of quarterbacks that can be considered elite.  Peyton Manning and Ben Roethlisberger can definitely be considered in that elite category.

In a previous article (2011 NFL: Rating the League's Smartest Players), I ranked Peyton Manning as the smartest quarterback in the league today.

One thing I didn't address is what quarterback you would rather have if you were to start a franchise. Fellow Pittsburgh Steelers writer Nick Signorelli addressed this topic back in 2009 (Peyton Manning-Ben Roethlisberger: Who Would You Rather Have?). Now I'd like to readdress this debate.

In this article, I'm going to compare these two quarterbacks while making cases for each and against the other.  For the sake of making this a fair argument, I will be comparing the first seven years of each quarterback's career.
