Default Big Ben trade RUMORS to the Rams.

So i heard a rumor that the Rams offered us this years first overall pick and next years first rounder for Big Ben, i HIGHLY doubt they are true but thought i would put it on here for you all.

"Other rumors circulating on the Internet, according to Fedko, is that the St. Louis Rams offered the Steelers this year's first overall draft pick and a No. 1 pick next year for Roethlisberger."

Just saw they are now talking about it on profootballtalk, they don't believe it either but heres the link.

i doubt its true but if it was i would do it in a second. i would hope they lost all the games this season so we can select QB jake locker in next years draft. this year i would trade the #1 pick and move back plus picking up an extra 2nd ad 3rd

I LOVE me some Jake Locker next year...but I rather have a proven SB winning QB in Roethlisburger.....but if we go this route we would sabotage our season!!!! We would make ourselves have a crappy record and we won't be winning a SB this upcoming season...it would also put our franchise in the wrong direction because we would have to develop a young QB in Locker again!!!!

Cant fine the link again but herd same thing and also that Mike Tomlin REALY likes Dixon..Now i dont want the trade but two 1st rounds would be nice..this year we could trade down 1 or 2 times and get 2 more round 2 picks.. plus get Bulaga or Trent around pick 9...would improve the line plus reload the D
dont forget i said dont want the trade..lol

The rumors are false according to this article....http://www.rotoworld.com/content/pla...=171325&spln=1

"SI.com's Peter King and ESPN's Adam Schefter both shot down rumors Tuesday night of a potential Ben Roethlisberger trade.
Internet rumors were flying in earlier in the day that had the Rams sending the No. 1 overall pick and next year's first-rounder for Roethlisberger. To which King responded on Twitter, "This nonsense must stop. Ben's a Steeler." Schefter said there's a better chance of him going to the Rams than Big Ben. Though local feelings have changed toward Roethlisberger, it's hard to picture him getting dealt. Apr. 13 - 8:42 pm et
Source: Peter King on Twitter"

I say BS as usual. But IF something like this was true I'd want MORE than that. Hell Cutler got 2 firsts a 3rd and i think a 6th (not sure about the 6th). I'd want at least 2 firsts...a 2nd this yr...3rd next...plus a good player (Carriker, Laurinaitis, etc)! Yes 2 firsts is nice...but Ben is waaaay more valuable than Cutler is (or probably ever will be).

This is all the bad of the internet rolled up into a perfect package. A shitty unreliable rumor site that's wrong 90% of the time being believed as real by vulnerable and naive fans, and, WORSE YET, actually thinking that this trade, which would be one of the worst EVER in the history of the NFL, were actually true. It's folly compounded by vulnerability with a twist of ignorance, wrapped up in sheer lack of understanding of the art of football.
