Why aren't you watching the parade? Fans who would rather troll another team web site than celebrate a SB are angry little people who need help. It's supposed to be fun, bro. Not about angry revenge....oh, and your post is worthless.

Realistically? We'd be getting multiple first round picks as well as multiple second / third round picks. To say otherwise is ignorant - look at what the Raiders gave up for Palmer. Now, imagine what a team would trade for a legitimate Quarterback with two rings.

I could see (in bizarro world) the Chiefs doing something like this:

To Steelers

2013 First Round Pick
2013 Second Round Pick
2014 First Round Pick
2014 Third Round Pick

To Chiefs

Ben Roethlisberger
2014 Fourth Round Pick

How am I trolling? I think it's a terrible idea to trade Ben. If I say it's a fantastic idea, does that mean it was a worthwhile post?

Why in the hell would we trade Ben. He was having an MVP caliber year before the injuries. He is entering the "prime" of his career. Its funny how one 8-8 year separates real fans and front runners.

How is Colbert on the hot seat for that matter too? You do know he was just extended last year. Anyhow, I don't know what we'd get for him. I think in two-three years you draft a successor. Wouldn't mind going with a gamble/developmental project this year in round 4-6.

It's just another manifestation of the typical knee-jerk overreaction that follows a disappointing season. Got a whole offseason of this coming. People want to tear the whole house down because the faucet leaks.
