Based on what? Are you guessing that the salary cap will be eliminated? Because unless that's what you're thinking, this deal will never look like a bargain.

Based on inflation. Or do you deny that exists?

Keep yourself in the film room Ben, earn your money, you still owe ME 3 rings.

Personally I think his head is a little too big already but I still think he is a great QB. With the investment we now have in him, I certainly hope we beef up the protection fast. I realize you can injure yourself doing just about anything, but all other things being equal, he's less like to get injured if he's sacked 15 times a season vs. 45 IMO.

Actually '76 is right. With the ever-increasing salary cap and the possibilities of certain high-paid Steeler vets leaving after 2008 and beyond, this deal will look like a bargain down the road.

But of course, Big Headed Ben is baggage and we should'nt have signed him.
