Default If GB offered Aaron Rodgers for Ben

Would you want the Steelers to do this trade?

Obviously this is an unrealistic hypothetical but I am curious what the current Steeler Nation thinks of Ben. Are they loyal to the scrappy QB that has brought them two SBs or have they had enough and would welcome a talented QB with a clean record.

Why did I choose Aaron Rogers? I think it would provoke the most thought. Peyton Manning and Brady are too obvious (i hate them both - so i would vote no automatically); Mark Sanchez is too raw, Phil Rivers is a dick and everyone else sucks in the AFC. Donovan McNabb is too old, Eli is a wuss, Romo is gay, Stafford and Matt Ryan are too young, Cutler is too arrogant (and not good), and Brees is too good right now to poll. And everyone else in the NFC sucks. But Aaron Rogers is a good QB that is down to earth, smart and clean cut and the way he handled the whole Farve fiasco was admirable.

At this time, I would be very tempted to take Rogers if this trade was offered.

I hate the Packers and everything about them, and Rogers can go ahead and kiss my ass. He's not all that great and hasn't won shit.

See, that is why I didn't pick Phil Rivers in this poll. I can't stand the guy. Even if he is talented and good, I would want the Steelers to keep a potentially sex-addicted QB in Ben than get a douche-bag like Rivers.

I can understand why you wouldn't want Rogers.

Like you said,


you could have just as well included Santa as a choice.

"Clean record?" Wanna fill me in on what Ben's been convicted of? Or even charged with, for that matter? Being a jerk/horny dumbass/(fill in any other unflattering adjective that has been tossed around here in the last two weeks) isn't a crime, last I checked.

now i know none of the uber proud and overzealous steelernation would want to hear this, but the steelers would probably be in the exact same position with rodgers, rivers, or even eli (w/o the 2 sexual assault accusations, of course).

infact the likes of pennington and grossman wouldve been more likely to reach their expected potential if they had been drafted by the steelers (as opposed to the "busts" they currently are regarded as).

im as big of a ben fans as anyone, but lets get this much clear....

the rooneys made "Big Ben". he did not make the steelers.

i know this statement will make many cry, but i woulda been happy with either eli or rivers on that draft day in '04 considering hall, jones, robinson, jackson, andrews, were the other guys on our targeted list.

semantics.

i pretty much get the gist of what the OP was getting at.

Sure. And Rivers would without a doubt have 2 rings right now too had he been drafted by the Steelers, never mind the fact that he has yet to win one in SD, despite having the benefit of a supporting cast LOADED with talent, arguably more so than the Steelers.

do you REALLY believe that or are you just buying into all the disney channel/espn/media hype?

do people really think the steelers would be incapable of winning a ring with rivers or manning.

i mean DAMN! i know ben is good, i just didnt know he was THAT good. perhaps the rooneys should double his pay and offer him a slice of the team (now that they are in debt to keep the team in their name).

No, I believe what I see and what the results have borne out. I stopped watching ESPN 4 years ago. Yeah, I guess ol' Phil has had it really rough playing on the same team as the likes of Tomlinson, Gates, Merriman, Jamal Williams, et. al. Hell, Montana couldn't have won jack with that bunch either.

Fact is, who KNOWS what we would have done in the last 5 years with someone else? Does Eli or Rivers make the tackle in Indy, for instance? I kinda doubt it.
