    They did draft Landry Jones this past season.

    Re: Roethlisberger Expected to Ask for Trade.

    Landry Jones did play in a pro-style offense at Oaklahoma and has had a season to sit the bench and learn the offense. You'd have to think that the Steelers are going to give him some game time near the end of the season so they can get some tape on him and see what he's all about before going into the draft.

    I suspect the Squeelers asking price for a trade is 1st Round pick for 5 years and the wife of the GM.

    Heard on the half time show that Ben is denying any report of him wanting to be traded.

    Re: Roethlisberger Expected to Ask for Trade.

    Can't say I blame him. They dump his favorite coach and they have let three of his go to receivers walk while they were still in their prime. He wasn't happy when they let Plexico walk early in his career. I don't know how he felt about losing Holmes, since he had his own issues at the time, but I can't imagine he was thrilled. And then they let Wallace walk out the door this past offseason.

    I'll miss Ben, if he goes. We have had our struggles against him but he's usually good to miss a game or two a season and he is very charitable with the football at times. I don't want the Steelers to get a young up shot QB. I want them to keep that broken down, aging, cap swallowing QB that they have.

    I am no NFL Cap Economist, and this is a just a anecdotal post I did not research, but I read that the Steelers have $97 million tied up into 9 players. If that is true, look for BIG changes next year. Which I believe is good, as they tend to keep vets around for big money and sit the prospects. The Ravens are effective at finding and using rookies who can start, while the Steelers promptly sit rookies and ask them to take notes for seasons on end.

    I honestly feel the AFC North is the most dynamic division in the NFL. Any team can win it at this point.

    Of course he denies it.

    And it is a good thing too. He still lives in shittsburgh. Can you imagine the danger his family would be in if the Yinzers knew that their beloved QB didn't want to be there anymore. He'd need the national guard just to get out of town. Deny, Deny, Deny, until he's actually traded.

    Which means nothing. He would most likely deny it if it's true, and (of course) always deny it if it's false.

    No, I can't imagine that. Pittsburgh, like any other fanbase would move on. And if indeed the unconfirmed rumor mill is even remotely true, I would not blame him. He consistently places at the top for stats and seems to struggle at the same time due to the OL. He has a few years at best left, and a trade would make sense for him.

    BB will be in "shittsburgh" (which is a beautiful city) for years to come. I am confident the Steelers and BB will be in contention for another SB before he retires. The current state of the AFC North is abysmal, and I have confidence in BB that he can overcome the current quagmire.

    According to that story they entertained trade talks last season. I'm sure if someone made the right offer, there aren't many players who are off limits, including BR. But I'd suspect it would take a lot to get him unless they want to move the contract.

    I expected that to happen this past off season. Still think that's where he ends up if not remained in Pitt.

    You do know that fans have threatened players before right? Matt Schuab is a living breathing example. If Ben publicly admitted he didn't want to be a Steeler any more, he would be public enemy number one and like I said, he would need protection.

    Get off your high horse. Shittsburg fans are not some world class group that is a cut above the rest. They have their share of idiots among them.

    Re: Roethlisberger Expected to Ask for Trade.

    Get off my "high horse?" In what regard? I know dumbass Falcon fans threatened Schuab. What does that have to do with this topic? Please, connect those dots. Sure, there will be fans who cross the line, just like any fan base, but the majority will move on. what if Flacco said he did not want to play in Baltimore anymore? Of course dumbass fans would react stupidly. Level-headed with thoughtful opinions like you and I would respect their choice.

    Please support your opinion that I am on a "high horse." What did I say that specifically prompted you to think that?

    And Shittsuburg? Really? Have you ever been to Pittsburgh? Don't be snide, just give an honest answer. Pittsburgh is a great city, with a storied tradition.
