Put me solidly in the minority camp then. Not just no, but he'll no. Never really liked the guy. There is something that rubs me the wrong way about the guy. I just don't see him as that good a QB. If we gave up a 2nd to get him, maybe he'd prove me wrong, but just not a fan. 2.1 is a pretty damn nice pick to have.

I'd almost rather take a QB in the 1st and 2nd and see what happens, even though that would be pretty unorthodox and we have a lot of holes to fill.

I just hate that some of our stars need to get to the SB in the next year or two and we'd be so much better off at the QB position tanking in 2014 and drafting high in 2015.

I've never liked him all that much either, but he would be far and away the best qb this team has ever had. And is head and shoulders better than anyone we could draft in the 1st or second round this year for this upcoming year

As far as Rape allegations go. I find it humorous that there was never a conviction. Personally, if someone raped me (Who could be so desperate?) there is no amount of money that would keep me from making sure that person paid with a prison term, losing everything they had in the process and branding them a rapist forever!

And yeah, if a woman wears a revealing shirt and her tits are hanging out, then she yells at someone for staring at her tits, I would say that it pretty stupid, and asking for trouble. A shirt that reads "I'm down to f...." speaks volumes about her character, and why she was there that night. The fact that after the fact someone possibly whispered in her ear "This is a payday girl" makes the whole thing suspect.

It's not like there are gold diggers out there right? Sure Ben is at fault for getting himself into that situation, and it speaks to his character flaws as well, but remind me again who is without them?

If Ben were a Rapist, he would not be able to stop, and would eventually get caught where a payoff would not work. Most likely, it was consensual, and turned into a "pay me or I will ruin your career" kind of a thing.

None of us were there, and he is not in jail, so take it for what it is worth.

Oh and for the record, I would welcome Big Ben to the Texans with open arms, and agree he would be the best QB the club has ever had. But then again why not pick up Bortles in the draft who in my eyes is allot like Ben, and then you have your franchise guy. Will Bortles ever be as good as Ben? WTFK? But he certainly has the potential to be.

I wouldn't rape you, but you could probably seduce me.
You all are making it sound like the female in Ben's case would be impossible to rape.

A big part of Ben's price would be the salary he required, from a team in cap trouble. I'd rather draft Bortles, or maybe Carr.

Being in Pittsburgh for a while Ben has done some really stupid stuff, it's not just the rape allegations, the motorcycle wrecks, the run ins with Teddy Bradshaw, the laziness in offseason antics, and other issues.

I'd say no, if the Roonies are looking to get rid of him it's because he's created a major issue that they can't work out and offloading him is their best choice with no QB in the waiting.. beware..

Now that all being said maybe he's turned the corner, but in his early years there have definitely been multiple incidents. It would require some investigation for sure.

There is a gigantic difference between wanting to get rid of someone and not wanting to pay someone like Peyton Manning. That difference more than swallows any thought of doing it to offload a two time SB winner because of misconduct/alleged misconduct a decade ago. If those were their primary issues they would have dumped him as a 1 SB winner with one of the worst SB QB performances ever instead of giving him his current contract.

Todd Haily has done more to ruin that team than BR. As Cak said, if they look to move him, it is more about his salary than anything dumb he has done while with the Steelers.

Seems like you guys expect these guys to stop living their lives because they play football. So he had a motorcycle crash. So what? Is he not allowed to spend any of the cash he earned and ride a motorcycle? I mean if it is was in his contract ok, but geeeez. Give the guy a break.

- his team voted him off as captain in 2010 (not too long ago)
- he has had multiple issues with his current offensive coordinator
- he was never able to finish a full year of getting the crap kicked out of him because he held onto the ball FOREVER.
- he's lazy in the offseason, look how fat he gets it's insane, and this isn't the first time it's been brought up.
- this is one of the first seasons he's started all 16 games!

The biggest problem with the Steelers is they no longer have Cowher.

whatever, I expect him to abide by his contract, and riding a motorcycle in Pittsburgh without a helmet was a dumb move, if you have lived there then you understand. Once of the worst city traffic patterns ever, and potholes everywhere and ridiculous conditions...

Nothing like going across a metal grate bridge in rain on a motorcycle.

I do not think the Steelers will let him go.

As for the Texans, I'd welcome him here in a heartbeat. Dude has the clutch-gene, and his two rings in three appearances prove it.

As far as the rape allegations, was he convicted? No. Why the rush to judgment when NONE of us were there. Seems like basing an OPINION on nothing more than hearsay, and most of the OPINIONS that bring it up don't like the guy to begin with. The tar and feather crowd are so sanctimonious in their condemnations that I marvel at the perfect lives they have always led. Y'all are amazing in your perfection.

No they did not elect him captain when he was about to serve a 6 game suspension for an assault allegation which was ultimately dropped by the supposed victim and declined to prosecute by the DA. Next election he was back to team captain.
