    Russell Wilson

    Will Russell Wilsons Mega contract have an impact on Bens impending one?

    This isnít good for our cap space

    4 years 140 mil with 65 guaranteed.

    Whatís crazy is Wilson have Seattle a deadline of 4/15 or he wasnít going to sign this year and Seattle gave in.

    So the question to Ben is...

    You can’t really play hardball with a franchise QB. Ben could easily just hang his cleats up. He has the Steelers by the balls so yes he will command a hefty amount.

    If you look back on that 2012 draft class Russell Wilson, Kirk Cousins, and Nick Foles all got their money and none of them were first or even second round picks.

    This is insane. Most of the QB’s will struggle to make the playoffs the next few years.

    Great observation MOS;that should give us some hope in Rudolph.
    From the 2010-2018 season, (8 years after Cowher's players & coaches had left) Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the postseason; not the regular season.

    It may be an exception; but none of the top six paid Qbs teams made the playoffs last year. When a qb is eating more then 13percent of a teamís cap, those teams havenít won. Not since 1994.

    In comparison, Brady is only making 15 mil this coming season.

    I think Rudolph will be a good QB for us. Not unlike Cousins or Foles. Wilson is definitely a level above those guys.

    I hope so. I’d like to see a good transition between he and Ben.

    Let Ben play out his contract and be done. 4 year 140 mill is crippling to a franchise.
