Default Big Ben trade even up

I was arguing with a Packer fan about Big Ben. He said he sucked and I basically said there was no other QB in the league I'd rather have. Clarifying this statement, I explained that if the Steelers could trade Big Ben for any QB in the league that I couldn't think of one that I would trade him for.

Post which QB, if any you would trade for. Salary is not a factor, but age is. So whoever you choose would play out their days in Pittsburgh and Big Ben would finish his career on that team.

there are only a handful of QB's that I believe are better than Ben.

Brees
Manning (Not Eli)
Rivers
Cutler

But there is no other QB I would want in the league other than a healthy Tom Brady or Peyton Manning captaining a 2 minute drill to win the game.

Franchise QBs don't grow on trees. And Ben is a franchise QB!

brady hasnt led a 2 minute drill to win a game since 04 SB (and even then it was won on the foot of vinatieri.)

Brees or Manning, thats the only two. I'm not completely sold on Cutler, and Rivers to me isn't as good as Ben.

Would Tom Brady suffer another career-threatening injury if we put him behind our OL? If so, I'd make that trade and then just make sure we have a good backup to play the next couple years. Otherwise, nothing out there is really worth it in my eyes.

Whatever ... sure, he might not have winning drives in two minutes if you want to pick apart my post. But I guarantee you he plays huge in the fourth quarter when it counts.

i.e. 2007 16-0 Season ... 14 fourth quarter pts. to come back and beat Indy (both brady TD passes) ... and 21 pts in essentially 15 minutes in the latter part of the second half to save a perfect season vs. the Giants.

Tom brady in the fourth quarter is money in the bank. We, as steeler fans, should know. you can't deny that.
