How cruel of you. Some of our fellow fans might hurt themselves.

I disagree completely ...Arians would take Luck before Ben....much more upside.

This isn't about Luck though.

Well, they're going to have to address QB at some point, but I don't think that Ben is done by a mile. He's still got a strong arm and generally makes pretty good decisions with the ball. If Manning can play like he did last season, there's no reason Ben can't.

Funny, I haven't heard that or read it anywhere. Care to provide a link?

So how many "beast" players is he supposed to hit on per year? Six? Seven?

For as inactive as the Steelers are in FA, they better damn well be doing a decent job in the draft. Three Super Bowl trips in seven years with two wins suggests they are.

My point is he took the Colts to the playoffs with a shit team and a great rookie qb. Arians wouldnt want Ben.

But Luck was the most talented qb to come out of college in forever. There's no chance they get someone like him in Arizona. If Ben was on the trading block they would go after him like nothing else. Good defense with a mediocre offense and Ben as the qb? Sounds like Arians' job here.

That guy isn't a troll. This assclown, however, is:

The defense is getting old but QB and OL need to be a priority come draft time.
