I'm with you, but if I had to choose, I guess I go with our "franchise" QB. This is a hard decision to make when your not able to see how your "franchise" QB bounces back after a pathetic season.

In a realistic world, Ben and Troy.

then again, i find any poll with the potential to start an argument as a good poll.

polls where you find out 80% of the people think you are crazy are the best.
LOL..you need a poll to tell you that?

Seriously, I thought that was a pretty illuminating poll (in terms of fans awareness of the cap and its implications) you did on the Faneca/trade scenarios - proved to be a few weeks ahead of the curve too.

Lose Faneca and Troy Polamalu to FA in 2008

2. Sign Faneca to a 5 year deal which makes him the highest paid guard in football and Troy to a deal that makes him the highest paid safety in football.

Lose Faneca to FA in 2008 and Ben in 2010.

Which deal do you make?
This is hard.

I voted for Ben and Hines, but the other option is definetly viable.

I mean its either the best Guard and best Safety or a possesstion receiver and second tier quarterback.

The only problem is that the QB position is SO hard to replace, so I had to go with Ben/Ward.

Despite losing two of the best players in the league, you need that foundation. Ben's the rock.

Ben and Troy... Ward will still be around and most likely restructure to retire a steeler.

Let's see a QB & WR vs. an OG & SS. Should be easy right, just goes to show how much we all really love Faneca and just how special Troy is.

Sorry I refuse to answer the question based on the grounds that I feel you are trying to "trap" us Steelers fans into something so you can poke fun at us later!

And in all seriousness, I love Ward, he's my favorite and Troy is second but in the order of need, we need to keep Troy and Ben. You can't rob Peter to pay Paul in this hypothetical situation.

Besides if they got rid of Troy, Ben, or Hines, I think there would be a lot of Steelers fans doing this and and and while other team's fans would be standing by and and eager to

how do you let go of a 4th year QB with Ben's credentials? No Brainer. I'd choose Ben and whomever is tacked on with him.
