From what I've heard, Holmgren is not impressed by Claussen anyways, meaning this is all the more likely that they bite because despite signing Delhomme and Seneca Wallace, they still need a QB longterm.

Jake will be a suitable starter until the suspension is over but no way they're thinking of him as a starter beyond a year or two.

You think some Steelers fans hate Ben already? Let him show up in a Clevelend Browns uniform at Heinz...I LOVE IT.

Holmgren isn't impressed by Clausen, our O-Line is fine, etc

We won't know until we do.

Not really. Dixon and Leftwich(MNF against us 2008) have locked it up quite well over there.

I'll say this again trade big ben to raiders for their 1st and 4th and a next year pick.Then the steelers trade us their 4th rounder for JC, (they moved up with the raiders pick) all parties will be very happy!

Re: Steelers Actively Shopping Big Ben for a Top 10 Pick

I don't think that it'll take that much for a team to acquire Ben at this point.

It would set their team way back to trade him regardless of their compensation, even if a #1 pick and Bradford...he'll take years to catch up to Ben even if he does succeed.

I wouldn't be surprised to see him go somewhere though, because Rooney seems very angry about his QB, but I don't think the Steelers initiated the talks.
you didnt pay attention to the post. Schefter didnt just say that the Steelers were receiving calls. He also said the steelers were contacting teams in the top 10. "contacting teams" is not the same as "receiving calls." I think "contacting teams" fits the definition of actively shopping.

This. its nice to know someone else is smart enough not to take what everyone says at face value. The only thing I have beleived 100% from a coach/GM/Owner in the past week was Jerry Jones saying Tebow sucked. And I only beleived that because the man was drunk. It would not surprise me at all to see Holmgren take Clausen.

Re: Steelers Actively Shopping Big Ben for a Top 10 Pick

Why in the blue hell would we take Ben...I seriously hope not. The guy isnt even all that good as a QB. He had the defense to win him his superbowls. Skins have a solid, but not spectacular defense, and no offense to speak of. Ben would suck harder than JC at this point if he came here...

That would be believed. Its nice to know someone else is smart enough not to BELIEVE what someone says at face value if they can't spell. And it was twice, so we know it wasn't a typo. PS... As a side note, can't wait for the draft tomorrow! HTTR.

Well this won't help Ben's trade value:

Re: Steelers Actively Shopping Big Ben for a Top 10 Pick

No shit!? Looks like Shann-a-llen missed out. They got ole broken up when they could've gotten a rapist. Smart move boys. He he he Just kidding. Ma-Dukes loves the Steelers. She's stopped watching them now. She doesn't like Ben. Can we get a name for him now? How about Uncle Ben? Everyone has a perveted drunked uncle that takes certain liberties with people?

No one will ever trade for him if he can get picked off by the "Diesel" on a TV show. I think his career is pretty much over. He runs pretty fast. Maybe we can sign him to replace AH.

Kind of off topic but if JC can't find anywhere to go is there a chance he comes back here to compete w/ Grossman? I just can't imagine this coaching staff going w/ Grossman if Mcnabb doesn't play all 16 games...which is a good possibilty.

I can see him coming back as a back-up to McNabb. Shanny already said that he would be open to that. I don't think its going to hurt Shanny's feeling any if Jason is the back-up. It depends on whether Campbell can swallow going from starter to back-up. With all he's already been through and how he's handled it, he might... But then again I'd be pretty pissed if I got shafted like that.
