Default Ben Roethlisberger for a top 10 pick

Pittsburgh has begun contacting teams to trade Ben Roethlisberger for a top 10 pick. At least one team considering it. Story far from done.

I'll be the first to say it.

Wonder if the Rooneys and the Steelers will get the same grief that Bowlen and the Broncos have received.

I would hate and love to see him on the raiders. He's a POS so he kind of belongs there. It will be that much easier to root against them.

Why not? Much less of a gamble than any of the QB's in the draft this year. We know Roethlisberger can both play and win. He's not without flaws but he's also a damn good NFL QB.

Benbuger alread has his Super Bowls.

Folks (including me) here believed Cutler's Super Bowls were in the future.

Hence the difference in emotions between the 2 fan bases.

That #8 pick will probably do the trick.

BTW, is Jamarcus' agent named Bus? I'm just wondering if Jabba won't get all upset to see these trade speculations going on and have his daddy drop off his playbook?

No. The Rooneys and Steelers have a track record of winning and championships. McDaniels does not, and Bowlen appears to be a shell of his former self..

Pitts o line was one of the worst in the league last year.

Agree that he wouldn't have the same results in Oakland, but you have to admit that he'd ba a massive upgrade for them at the position.

You don't see the similarity? Serial rape vs upset the coach is trying to trade you... Sound the same to me.

Think all that proves is that it doesnt matter what his o line does, one year he will be a world beater, the next a scrub.

Steeler fan is calling local radio with statements like this.

"Move him and draft a rookie"

"Ben's getting older and his concusions are growing"

"We already got rid of Santonio, might as well rebuild and get a younger QB"

"We had enough black eyes, time to clean up the fanchise"



This is fun to listen to on local yokel am sports talk!
