I say KEEP THE KID!

Damn, are we, Steelers Nation, becoming that petty that when we come in to tough times we want to trade the individual responsible for the damage?

"yes"

ben is great and i will readilly admit this but PLEASE, lets be real here and not pretend that he is the ONLY possible qb on earth who could bring the b&g rings #5&6.

the rooneys and the franchise are better than that.

for instance, if they didnt have ben they couldve easilly purchased the services of favre or warner.

I agree the kid has a bright future ahead of him!

Rodgers is definitely an up and comer and I think he is more than an average QB, but my vote goes to Ben hands down (if it is proven that he is innocent of these charges, which I believe is a strong probability) as he is a proven winner and has 2 bling rings to support that proof. Rodgers hasn't proven anything yet at this point in his career.

Now - if the question were Ben or Drew Brees, I might have a bit of a quandry.

i had both him and chris johnson on my team this past season and they were both the top at there positions and were a huge reason why i won it all in a 12 team leauge and only lost 1 game along the way. the funny thing is i got cj in the 2nd and rodgers in the 4th

And that is why, IMHO, they should unload him now. Take the value off the table while it's there. That is a business decision. No emotion.

To the point of the thread, yeah, I'd take Rodgers now. Not saying he's "better than Ben", but in the business scenario, he'd do quite nicely.

I've said before, I'll say it again. This is the strategy I'd pursue... http://forums.steelersfever.com/show...2&postcount=65

I'd be ready to bet that a poll on Brees vs Ben would give something like 70%-30% for Brees.
60%-40% for Ben vs. Rodgers tells me that Ben is not the icon some people here believe he is, despite his 2 rings.
