Steelers may shake up draft

Almost any Rothlisberger trade above 13 would be a good thing. It might push another OT down to us.

Fixed.

IF, IF; that is the problem. History shows that guys that mistreat women and have issues such as those alleged against Ben, do not overcome that behavior easily.

I would love to see Ben throwing to Crabtree and an occasion fly to Ginn, but what happens the NEXT time he "breaks training?"

I know we're hoping Davis will come along, but I would trade for Ben, Alex and Carr can battle for back-up and maybe Davis makes it past waivers.... Just like with Walsh - he was loyal to winning, not to a player - not even to Joe. When he thought he could improve the team (with Young) he would do it.

The problem with trading for Ben is that this team needs someone to come in and win now. There is enough talent to win the West and maybe get through to a second round game. I believe Smith can do that but Ben will not even be able to work out with the team until the end of September. He will then have to start learning the system and the players and THEN fit in. That will be a TREMENDOUS DISTRACTION for a team that already has had its share of distractions over QBs in the past five years.

The only way I see this helping the 49ers is if it results in a scenario that allows one of the top 3 OTs drop to them at 13. I see NO WAY Ben winds up on this team.
Contradicting (Maiocco) Tweets.....

Browns, 49ers have not been called, despite what others would say. STL, BUFF and OAK have; OAK only real option at this point.

Contrary to reports, the Steelers have not shopped Roethlisberger all over the top end of the draft. It's been much more calculated

Correct!
Well I saw on ESPN that the steelers had been shopping around ben for a top 10 pick. I don't believe the Niners would have enough firepower to trade for Ben unless we trade our 1st and 2nd rd. or Two of our 1st. It seems the Rams are the most reasonable trade for Steelers since they have the 1st pick overall. They can pick Bradford or Clausen the only negative is paying the rook top money.

The Steelers won't draft a QB.

Very true, but that's like saying we wouldn't draft a QB because of Nate Davis.

Um no.

Dixon almost beat the Ravens in a regular season, primetime game. Nate Davis has played some preseason football.

That's a big friggin difference.

He has a LOT better chance than Nate Davis.

As so it appears. Ben is going to be on a 6-week hiatus to 'BENCH LAND', and I'm assuming that if Dixon plays lights out during pre-season/regular things could get mighty interesting.
How about we wait and hope dixon plays like wild fire, then trade for big by giving up everything in next years draft for him

I know a lot of people about go nuts for me saying this, but just had to since this topic was started. Plus did not have anything else to say
