    Big Ben trade for 1rst OA pick

    Would you trade the first overall pick to the Steelers for Big Ben? KFNS had a small discussion about the rumor. I was wondering if any of you guys would do it ?
    Im too much on the Bradford bandwagon to look at it objectively, and of course it will not happen . In my opinion that would be a kick in the nuts to the 4 pillars.

    GO RAMS!!!

    Hell No. Roethlisberger is one of those second tier "franchise" quarterbacks. His success or failure is very much predicated on the parts surrounding him as opposed to his personal skills. When you combine that with his paucity of brain cells (for both natural and head trauma reasons), we should not unload the pick for him.

    I was wondering how long it would take for someone to float this idea.

    My answer: Hell no.

    Yup, he's exactly who we need taking Jason Smith, et al, out for beers after the game....

    Re: Big Ben trade for 1rst OA pick

    I'll second Av's wonderful statement: Hell no. As it was already said, he's a second tier QB that, while young and having two rings, has a history of off the field issues.
    While I do believe that he would be a good franchise quarterback for us, he's just not worth the overall number one, when you look at other quarterback's values. I'd try giving next year's 1st or our second this year.
    I believe!

    I'll give them a 3rd rounder and a bag of potato chips. No way is the Steelers getting our 1st overall.

    I won't comment on whether I would do it, because its irrelevant. But I really believe Ben will have learned his lesson, and quit messing with all the skanks. This will all be forgotten in no time.

    Re: Big Ben trade for 1rst OA pick

    Ben likes to hold on to the ball and pump fake a minimum of 19 times before throwing. I kid, but he does pump fake and hold on to the ball a lot, which makes him get hit a lot. Sooner or later that will take its toll.

    Not to mention the fact he is not a consistent franchise QB. He's either fantastic or pretty bad. He didn't win that first superbowl, his defense did. He did a little, but really, he was pretty awful.

    I doubt he'd be worth the headache, and I'd be a bit concerned about his long-term health with how long he holds the ball.

    Re: Big Ben trade for 1rst OA pick

    Not good enough to me, too old for my taste, way too high an asking price, hasn't learned from mistakes, too much drama. I can't believe they'd even roll out the idea that we'd give the number one overall pick for a 28 year old, sex addicted, hit magnet. He averages in the top 5 in sacks taken every year..HELL NO

    I'd pass on Walrusberger.. PUH-LEASE.... Not a four-pillar player, has a truckload (less than Marshall) but you get the idea. The only exception is a 3rd and/or a 5th round pick.

    A young proven winner for a guy that hasn't even played 1 down in the NFL?

    I'd do it in a heartbeat!

    Re: Big Ben trade for 1rst OA pick

    Big Bens Big Ben will get him in trouble one day. I would prefer if the head on his shoulders did the thinking for him both on and off the field. The QB is often looked at as the leader of the team. IMO if there was one area I would prefer not to take on a person with off field issues it would be QB. The QB needs his teammates to have faith in him to lead the team more so then any other position.

    I wouldn't give up the 1st OVR I might give up some later picks and some players but not the 1st.

    Re: Big Ben trade for 1rst OA pick

    I was looking through the people I follow on Twitter and someone posed a question similar to this to one of the NFL media "experts." I think it was to Adam Schefter, but it could have been to Chris Mortensen or Peter King. Anyway, the response given by Schefter was that there was a better chance of the Rams selecting him (Schefter) with the first overall pick than there was of this happening.
