i think the steelers were up in the air of which rb was better. kevin jones or steven jackson? we lucked out landing ben. the last 2 times we drafted high we considered rex grossman and chad pennington.

I gotta disagree with that statement. I don't think Maddox "sucked", if given time, behind a solid-line, the man was a "servicable" (putting it lightly) QB.

Oh yeah, and I think they would've gone with Philip Rivers.

There were a lot of folks within the Arkansas program thinking this as well. Shaun's "peeps" were leaking it left and right. I want to say that I remember reading that Cowher was very high on Andrews and that the Rooneys basically had to step in and demand that we take Ben. I can't remember where I read about the Steelers side of it, but I remember the Arkansas part well. Half of this state thought Andrews was going to be a Steeler.

I didn't have a computer or cable when Ben was drafted, and was only recently interested in football in general at the time. I'm just curious - what was the general reaction of fans when Ben was picked? Were they generally happy or did they think it was a bad idea? Were we really pushing for someone else at the time, perhaps even someone playing a different position, and think it was a poor choice, or were we behind it from the beginning?

I can only speak for myself, but I was very happy when we drafted Ben. I thought he was the best of the three top QBs in that draft. I'm not sure what the organization was going for. I know we were going after a QB because of Maddox's inconsistency and age. In all when we drafted Ben, I was thrilled. Who would've though he'd come in and go 16-0 as a rookie.
