Parennial Bengal killer Steelers QB Ben Roethlisburger is evidently seeking trade this coming off season.

I still think he's a top drawer QB. It will be nice to get him out of the AFCN though,

Implications.........?

Kinda like Peyton Manning is ?

Ben isn't getting along with his coaches in PIT, and who knows what a change of scenery can do ? FWIW, I still think R'burger can cause some damage in this league.

Ben is a ex-Ohio guy. I wonder if the Browns will make a call ?

There is no way PIT trades him to a division rival if they do at all

Agree 'JD'.

Early scuttlebutt is a trade out to the desert to hook up with Arians again. Phoenix is far enough away from the AFCN for me......

My prediction: he's not going anywhere.

Agreed. I don't think they want him going anywhere in the AFC, and I can't see the Cardinals offering multiple firsts and other assets, which is what it will take. If we can get a 1st and 2nd for Palmer, they can get much more than what we received. Teams won't be offering that.

Just because we got that for Palmer doesn't mean Pitt can get it for Ben. Any asset is truly only worth what someone else is willing to pay for it.

I don't think he goes anywhere, but if he does, it would be Arizona.

Big Ben denied any talks of being traded. Ok yeah I bet hes unhappy, but Big Ben has never had a losing season ever yet. And after beating the Bills yesterday, there still is a chance they won't.

If he was getting traded, they wouldn't trade him inside the division. That would be pure stupidity.

The Browns will have no interest in Big Ben. And comparing him to Peyton is blasphemy. Ben has 3 good years left the way he plays his game. Too much scrambling and taking shots, too bad his Oline has been terrible forever.

My comparison with Peyton Manning was based on his situation, and not his QB play. Peyton left IND for DEN, and so far has put up one of the best QB seasons in NFL history.

I wouldn't mind betting that if Ben left PIT, he too; like Peyton; could successfully rekindle his career someplace else.

It can happen. See Donovan McNabb for details.......

The Browns have no interest? Or you have no interest?

Oh ok. I was gonna say, talent wise they are no where close.
