    Interesting, now lets change the question Pap. Steelers get a phone call from a team interested in Ben. At what point do you start to think about it?

    I like Bridgewater and he played lights out vs Florida but the schedule this year is a joke. They shouldn't even get an autobid... I think Kentucky is the best team they will play all year.

    No... Ben is on the downside of his career... teams probably won't offer more than a second due to his age.

    But comparing Bridgewater to Kordell? The guy is a total pocket passer. He's not a running QB at all. In fact, he's run for like 30 yards total this year.

    Hmmm i I wonder why you compared him to Kordell...
    LOL... I remember people saying the same thing about Jamarcus Russell

    I'd keep Ben and make a play for Texas A&M LT Jake Matthews

    Objectively, Ben has a couple years max, at a "franchise" level. This is his TENTH year; I don't imagine a player with his style and mileage playing for 15 years (e.g. Peyton Manning). So if you could swing a deal where were you can get his replacement, you gotta look at it HARD.

    Of course, the problem is objectivity. It is hard to, when you have a player of Ben's status and history with the team.

    First, Clowney would likely be a OLB in our base defense. He would be huge, but he is far more athletic than Woodley and runs pretty well. Clowney has a chance to be our most dominant and dynamic playmaker since Rod Woodson.

    Second, I like Bridgewater. But, unless we trade Ben (not my first choice), I can't see that happening.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    based on? ESPN has shown that Michigan play so much people believe he does it every game. He hasn't shown much this year..

    Clowney takes plays off and doesn't like to practice. I'll pass....

    lol, yea, maybe I should've compared Bridgewater, or whatever his name is, to Jamarcus Russell..

    Ben needs a strong OL in front of him in order to make the plays he does. If the Steelers cant find OL that can block, they may just as well trade Ben and find a QB that can throw timing routes.
