    The main issue is that the guy who cut him in Tennessee is now in charge of the OL in Pittsburgh.

    I think the key word is "FANS"

    I agree that teams make mistakes but so do fans. Half the fans in Pittsburgh would celebrate if we traded Ben tomorrow.

    I don't agree with this statement at all, most Steelers fans realize that Ben is by far our best hope for a 7th Lombardi.

    But many of them would be happy to see him go because they think he is a serial rapist because news reports told them so, and they did not bother to look into the ridiculous facts of either case to see why not only wasn't Ben ever found guilty of anything, he was never even charged with anything.

    There is a reason Terry Bradshaw didn't return to the city for years...

    Pittsburghers always have it out for the QB regardless of his success.
