    Ben to Raiders???

    Latest reports have the Steelers looking for the 8th overall pick and that really good CB w/ the hard to spell name.

    That Jason guy from the NFL Network is reporting it.

    Not good enough for me. He has a HUGE contract. I'd rather pay THAT much money to a franchise quarterback in Ben, not a corner.

    According to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, the Raiders are in contact with the Steelers about a trade for Ben Roethlisberger.

    La Canfora says Oakland "might be (the) only real option" for Pittsburgh if the Steelers are truly prepared to wash their hands of the 28-year-old QB. The Raiders, smartly (for once), appear to have realized that JaMarcus Russell is a bust, and very arguably the biggest in NFL history. The Steelers might ask for Nnamdi Asomugha in addition to Oakland's No. 8 overall pick.

    I thought the same thing! It would be a tough pill to swallow accepting any contract that was negotiated by the Raiders.

    I'd want their 2nd round pick also

    If it went down, I'd ask for either Louis Murphy or Michael Bush as well...
    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust & sweat & blood...

    Nnamdi and Troy on the field? At the same time? You could go ahead and write off that half of the field.

    It's still too light, IMHO. See if Crazy Al will throw in their 2nd and some picks next year and we can talk

    Honestly, I wouldn't expect anything more than a 2nd round pick. Like I said before, we are not the Patriots. We don't trade well.

    You meant a fifth, right?

    Honestly, that horse is REALLY dead. Move on.

    No sarcasm there. I was actually being serious. And am seriously worried when Friday comes around and the 2nd round starts.
