    I thought conditional picks couldn't be traded? Or does this guy just not know what he's talking about?

    They heard? - from whom, the scotch they were discussing this over?

    You are thinking compensatory picks which can't be traded. A conditional pick is inherently one which is involved in a trade - it's identity (rd) is determined by certain conditions. So they are suggesting something like 2.1 this year plus a 3rd next year which could become a 2nd if Big Ben has over 3000 passing yards.

    The Steelers have prepared no one to replace Roethlisberger. Based on that fact alone, he stays in Pittsburgh.

    Always liked Ben.

    Would be interesting as a temporary measure.

    Heck he would be a pretty long term temporary. He is just about to turn 32.

    Pure speculation.

    But, I have posted a couple of times before that I would trade 2.01 for Roethlisberger in a heartbeat.

    Would be ideal given our current situation (i.e. the age of our "core", available QB's at 1.01, etc.).

    And, there was much scuttlebutt earlier this season about the Steelers trading Ben.

    As I have stated, though, given the Steelers' finish to this season, you'd have to think they'd be less inclined to trade him.

    I know some people have questioned whether the Texans would even draft a guy like Mettenberger for his sexual battery case; I can't see them trading for Big Ben with those two rape accusations.

    I guess what I meant to say was without drafting a QB to be the "Man" now. Temporary was not really what I wanted to say, been drinking.

    We could be successful for 5 years with a guy like Ben.

    Steelers are not giving him up. I'd welcome him for sure though.

    No to Roethlisberger. The price is just too high for a QB near the end of his career.

    Big Ben would be great IF we had a line to protect him and he was healthy, idk if we can achieve either and even we could he's not going anywhere this year

    Giving up 2.1 for Big Ben would make it easier to make a trade with Cleveland and try and get those 2 1st rounders and maybe a 3rd or picks next year. Target a top defensive player and a lineman with those 2 1st rounders and look to provide secondary help in the 3rd.

    I'm not saying I would want them to go this route, I haven't thought enough about it to form a strong opinion one way or another, but it does improve the QB play and allows other holes to be filled as well.

    He's an older 32, though. He's taken some hits.

    Texans just need to draft their QB period. They could have drafted Ben. They could have drafted Flacco. They could have drafted Foles (owned both later picks before trading back) ENOUGH! Figure it out boyz on Kirby :swatter:
