    If Ben’s opinion was truly valued we wouldn’t have drafted Mason Rudolph.

    Doesn’t matter one bit if Ben trust Jones.

    Disagree. Ben's opinion on retirement is exactly why they drafted Rudolph. They're worried he could retire anytime now.

    There will be certain opinions of his that they value. And others that they don't. It's not a one way or the other thing. I believe that if Ben truely finds big value in having Jones as his backup, this will weigh in on their decision.

    I think Ben had something to do with Haley being gone. Something to do with Fictner coming on the field from the booth last year. They value a HOF franchise QB's opinion when they need to.

    They got rid of the OC because he and Ben didn't get along. The promoted Ben's QB coach to be the OC. They know they have 1 year left with Ben, Bell and Brown. If Ben says Jones helps him during the game then they'd be foolish not to listen. What's more important - you're franchise QB having a second set of eyes during game he completely trusts or the 6th but more likely 7th round pick Landry would bring. Should be a no brainer.

    Rudolph was drafted mostly because they were shocked his was available in round 3. Then there's Ben's retirement talk and his age. Nothing to do with not valuing Ben's opinion.

    I think that Ben's opinion matters a lot. He just doesn't have final say.

    And I believe that Ghost is correct that Jones brings more value off the field, so the young guys would need to be significantly better on the field to outweigh that contribution.

    They value what Ben says.

    Roethlisberger went down in practice on a relatively minor impact. The Steelers better plan for him being out a few games this season....

    Went down? It’s preseason. Do you really think Ben would miss a regular season game if Gilbert ran into him in practice?
