Aaron Rodgers will be 30 in December. He's a whole year and nine months younger than Roethlisberger is, and he's been sacked at a higher rate than Roethlisberger has over the last three seasons.

You pick lottery numbers too? Rodgers is about one more serious concussion away from a network talking head gig. And Green Bay's OL is even worse than ours. Do the math.

Cam a one hit wonder? Your kidding, right? Even though he wears the Superman jersey from time to time, he ain't got shit to work with in Carolina. Luck has a pretty good squad in Indy. Wow!

Exactly, the ratbirds played pretty good in the secondary. Some of these folks hear a phase uttered by the talking heads and repeat it indefinately, as if it will come true by them speaking it.

Yes Ben was so tough choking down the stretch this year. Really tough missing the playoffs two of the last four years. Really tough playing like shit against the great Tim tebow and not winning a playoff game 3 out of the last 4 years and the one year he did win in the playoffs it wasn't because of him his numbers were bad. Ben has gone backwards even during his so called MVP streak his year we still didn't score He had the number 1 defense and missed the playoffs. There are more then a few and you could argue for. I hate flacco you know what he does makes it to the playoffs every yea and wins in the playoffs every year. Have to be unit to win it

Cam Newton a one hit wonder? Were those words just spoken?

Who does Cam have to throw to? Honestly. Steve Smith and .... ? That's it. You can't honestly sit there and tell me Greg Olsen is even a decent Tight End because he isn't. Who else is he throwing to? Brandon LaFell? Luck, on the other hand, not only has a reliable Running Back stable that isn't being paid 12.5 million and underachieving, but he has legitimate and reliable hands he can throw to.

Newton is a better and more athletic and has a better arm than Kaepernick. He was able to throw for over 4k yards without anyone other than Smith to throw to and he's running behind a less-than-stellar offensive line. Kaepernick, on the other hand, is running behind an All-Pro OLine while having Vernon Davis, Crabtree and a future first ballot HOF'er to throw to and people are clamoring over him why?

Newton is the only guy I'd trade Roethlisberger for and I'd do it in a heartbeat. Kaepernick is throwing to an All-Pro offense and most of the time can't even hit those throws which is pretty pathetic. If you listen to the commentators, he has a 'massive arm and great deep ball' which is complete and total horseshit. Have you ever seen him try and rainbow a ball? It's laughable. When people get some tape on this guy and realize that what the Rams were doing is what needs to be done every game, Kaepernick is going to be shut down. Think about that for a second: the St. Louis Rams completely shut down Kaepernick and made him a liability instead of an asset. Sorry, I don't want to trade for a Quarterback that made the Rams defense look like they should be All-Pros.

Also, did I read someone say we should trade for Kaepernick because he has a fast 40 time? I'm going to hope and pray that person was kidding.
