I talked to a guy with another team who thinks Goodell did Tomlin a favor by giving him a voice now over Ben. Tomlin will be in charge of the team for the first time and it may actually help. But I'm hearing Rooneys definitely want him gone.

    Don't know who the 'Deuce' is, he's referring too....
    the 'Deuce' is Art II. Wexell is pretty on it with his reporting. This is the first time I have really heard him start mentioning that a trade is possible. Up to this point he has stated that the Rooney's were furious but that they would not trade Ben. For him to be reporting this it is probably true they are trying to shop Ben.

    It is really starting to look like Ben is too toxic for the rest of the NFL at this point.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    I know nothing about draft points, but what's the difference between the 5th and 2nd slots?? Could it be our 18th, the 5th, and a couple other rounds to trade with Detroit?


    the difference is 900 points, which equates to our #1 pick.

    so let's say KC gaves us their #1 choice at #5, we could then trade it and our pick at #18 to move into the 2nd slot.

    I'm starting to get upset to my stomach again. I seriously can't take this.

    Would be giving Ben away. You would have to give up your #18 plus our #52 plus about 4 other picks to get up to #2 to get Suh. So essentially you trade Ben plus picks to get a DT. That would be truly stupid.

    If you are going to that then just release him and keep the picks.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    See Hawaiian's post above. If we trade Ben for the #5 (1,700), then all we need is our #18 (900) to move up to #2 (2,600). No other picks would be needed. I'd love to get Suh, but I would need more for Ben. Thrown in Cassell and maybe it would be a deal.

    I agree. I hope they make a decision soon.
