I love D too. But franchise QBs don't come around that often. Bradshaw 70-83 and now Big Ben 04-05. We had some pretty good Ds in between but no real Qbs...

I love defense, but it is so hard to get a great QB! We have been blessed with many talented safeties, and only two awesome QB`s in the burgh. I have to stay with Ben, but it would kill me to let Troy go.
Please don't make me choose, cleve. Both Ben and Troy are part of a team, and both players are still a huge part of our beloved Pittsburgh Steelers at this point, so I will not choose. Ben is the natural leader of our team and a kickass QB whom I don't want to lose at any cost, but yet with Troy on the field it's like having 5 more players in the game...(lol).

Come on SteelerzGirl choose one. I know what you mean though. Its like choosing which hand to cut off your right or your left. Both Ben and Troy are still very young and have alot of great football left in their respective careers. But I have to go with Ben. Its really hard to find that young franchise QB.

I hear you and I was kidding with you. I don't want to lose one of them either. Both are very important to our football team. Hopefully the Rooney's find a way to keep both Ben and Troy.

My whole Steelers life I wanted a legit franchise QB. I was praying and hoping that Ben fell in the 2004 draft. He did and I hope retires a Pittsburgh Steeler. Plus his 27- 4 record speaks for itself. Ben hasn't even hit his prime yet. He is still improving and only entering his third year. This season the NFL better watch out. Ben is going to tear the NFL up.

About Troy though I know he is a great safety and is very important to our defense since he can do so many things. But I think finding a great safety is easier then finding a great QB. But the Steelers will have to anwer this question soon since Troy's contract is up after the 2007 season and Ben's is up after the 2009 season. I just hope they can find a way to keep both. Its going to take alot of money but both should retire a Steeler. The Rooney's can afford but will they shell out the cash is the question.


I'm with ya Bro! I would rue the day that we lost either one....but Troy, I am truly sorry to say, would be easier to replace than Ben.

I heard and maybe it was here that Troy is leaving when his contract is up because his wife is from CA and has family back there. That could also VERY EASILY have been a rumor. I find it kinda hard that Troy would have said this. But also stranger things have happened.

Something like half of all SB MVP's have been QB's. Just off the top of my head I'd say 2-3 DB's (only 1 Safety). I'll take Ben. Fortunately there are a lot of big contracts that will be up by the end of the 2008 season so keeping both shouldn't be a problem.
