If I was going to trade BR it wouldn't be for Griffin. If Peyton Manning was younger I would do that trade. I would trade him for Aaron Rodgers.

Retired QBs(1980's and on)l would trade for are as follows...

Marino

Elway

Aikman

Favre

Ben is our QB, I'm willing to sink or swim and live or die with him.


Perfect!

Roethlisberger is the most overrated player in the NFL after Terrell Suggs.

He is replaceable don't kid yourselves.

Alex Smith won't win games by himself (although he was awesome last year in the playoffs) but he won't lose games by himself either.

I would rather have an effective passer than a poor man's Brett Favre who shits on his coaches to the media.

Your out of your mind. I you would trade Ben for Alex Smith? That's just insane to me and I gurentee you would be the first person calling for Smiths head after his first year as a Steeler

Ben has won here ... so replacing him would be stupid. Now replacing his coaches (including Tomlin) now that would make sense.

A lot of people don't realize that Ben DETACHED a rip from the bone. I want people here to tear a rip and try to throw anything let alone a football at the NFL level.

Yes he made some bad throws but I'm not throwing him under the bus yet. He clearly needs better coaching and a legit running game. Our RB's sucked this year.
