Just read this article over morning coffee and damn near spit it out.... Anywho, i figured it was worthy of it's own thread. If u mods see fit, merge it.

If I were in charge of the Pittsburgh Steelers I would have had enough of QB Ben Rothlisberger and his antics. For me no mater of quilt or innocence will take away the fact that he is totally immature, reportedly rude to Steelers fans, and unaware that prima donna NFL players are rapidly falling out of style. At this point, with Big Ben
facing a suspension and no real backup behind him I would consider doing something drastic. That might sound harsh, but how many off seasons will Benís behavior be an issue in?

Right now I would be on the phone with the Philadelphia Eagles seeing what they wanted for QB Donovan McNabb. If the price was my 18th pick in the first round, I would have to seriously consider making that deal. The Eagles are reportedly asking for at least a top 42 pick. That seems to mean that with the 18th pick McNabb would be in play. Of course making that move is only good for the short term, and I would be looking to draft a QB in next yearís draft or possibly in the later rounds of the 2010 draft.

After I had settled the Ben problem I would seriously consider a move against head coach Mike Tomlin. In my mind he takes too many unnecessary risks. I also doubt his ability to keep the players in line. I might not fire him outright, but he would be served notice that the status quo is unacceptable.

I then would spend the 2010 draft addressing very specific potions on the roster. Being a somewhat solid team, I could afford to take a best player available plan into this draft. I would also be on the phone to the Oakland Raiders asking about Ben for the 8th overall pick in the 2010 draft. If the Raiders offered me the 8th overall pick and CB Nnamdi Asomugha for Big Ben that deal would get done immediately.

Believe it or not there are Steelers fans out there all in favor of something like this. Well, 3 of my EX - FRIENDS are wanting to just cut him out-right and move on. a couple other are all for a trade.

Anywho, further proof as to why this is the only message board i participate in these days.

I like the part about giving up our 18th overall to the Eagles when they were willing to settle for near mid 2nd round. That makes solid sense.:coffee:

We went 25 years in between SB #4 and SB #5. In those 25 years we had some very good teams. The one constant we didn't have was a franchise QB. Now that we have one we have 2 more SB's in the last 5 years and I think we have 1 or 2 more to get in the next 5 years, but not without Big Ben. When you get a franchise QB, you guard him with your life, which is why the 8 year $100mil+ contract last year. You don't deal him to the Raiders for a corner and a draft pick.

There is honestly no player in the league I would trade Big Ben for straight up. Great QB's are just too hard to find and no other position on the field is even half as important.

It just proves that you don't have to know anything about football to write about it on the internet.

Yep, Ben's "quilt" is obvious. The question of his "guilt," not so much....

Hard to take a blogger seriously when they don't even take the time to proofread their spew.

Exactly. Hell he probably isn't even a real Steeler fan more like an eggles fan if you ask me.

Trade with the raiders and the eggles SHEESH!!! Put down the crack pipe son.

I want nothing to do with McChoke. Regardless of BB's outcome. McChoke is a locker room cancer, he has proven time after time. This past season he blamed his line and the rookie rb's. IF this clown was our qb over the past 4 seasons we would not have the last 2 sb's. He can not handle the pressure, can not take a hit, and only lays blame, doesnt shoulder it.

BB has not been found guilty of anything. Period. Currently America stands for innocent till proven guilty. although Obama is working on changing that asap. soemthing about a hidden loop hole to convict everyone than bring in his own population.
Regardless, Ben hasn't done anything wrong, but put himself in a bad siatuation, and to be honest, you do not know your in a bad situation till after it happens, sometimes.

Im not very happy with bens decision making but that post is nuts. Ben is a top 5 qb and I would never trade our 1st round pick. Tomlin already won a superbowl so I won't even waste my time defending him. As for Ben, I wouldn't be against trading him after this season but only if we got a top pick and was able to draft washingtons qb in the 2011 draft. I love Ben but I don't see him playing into his mid-30's getting hit as many times as he does.

I thought he meant Ben was going to be making QUILTS during the remainder of the off-season and sale them to benefit his police dog charity. Damn, guess I was wrong or would that be wronq?

LMAO...who writes this shit???

"mater of quilt or innocence"? He can't even spell Roethlisberger correct lol. And yeah, let's get rid of Ben for McNabb or trade him to the Faders for an 8th pick and Asomugha. While were at it, let's can Tomlin too. The Steelers don't need that bum!

So glad morons like these aren't running the organization.

I think the OP was saying that his quilting is immature. How many Bert&Ernie quilts can we tolerate from the starting QB? He needs to work on this, otherwise I say bring in Dixon and let's see what he can do with the old needle&thread.

Don't think this is just me. I'm sure Dan Rooney is having sleepless nights over the maturity of Ben's quilting.

I'd trade him for Troy P, James Harrison and Lemar Woodley...but the fun part is, we already have all 3 of those guys !:tt04:

Lets see, how long have we been seeing this now...

"I have a sports blog...I have no hits...I am going to write an anti-Steeler page and pisss off Steelers Nation. They they will cut and post the link to my blog to all their forums and I will get hit after hit because Steelers fans are out of their mind about their team already"

Its been this way for as long as I can remember, in fact, Mark Fatmadden has made his career out of being the "anti-Steelers" Pittsburgh Guy.

They can all suck on my walnuts. (I have a tree out behind my house, come visit, and suck on the walnuts. You might have to chase off the deer first, but you're welcome, all you anti-Steelers writers and bloggers and sports casters, to come to my house, and suck the walnuts...suck em.)

You don't even have to know how to spell. Be will grow up and I see in my crystal ball 2-3 more SBs before he retires a Steeler. Now we can concentrate on all the other "potions" we need to address.:sofunny:

My question how did a moron who wants to trade our 1st round pick and our 2 time superbowl champion QB for an aging replica of Kordell Stewart? He is a once in a lifetime player & a true leader on the field, and the big reason we have won superbowls since the 70s.

I wonder if this blogger also writes articles about every other team who has a player get into off the field problems and wants to get rid of the coach. Cincy would have been through about 10 coaches in that one year alone. Yes it is stupid of Ben to get into these situations, but this blogger has a vendetta against the Steelers and it clearly shows with his stupidity

Hellz NO!!! His only problem is he likes wimmin and havin fun.

Man I feel bad for the guy. How is he ever going to meet a girl without an escort and a lawyer? He is single. Wants to play the field. But keeps stickin his foot in groundhog holes. Its not going to get any better now that he has a rep.

I mean did Joe Nameth ever have to put up with this crapola???? Hellz no again.

Whats the world coming to???
