Ha. I think he’s still an elite QB, but he can’t beat Brady and he’s fat.

Nothing to see here, if you followed the Steelers you’d know that Big Ben frequently says dumb stuff publicly.

Steelers would have drafted a QB whether Ben did his "I might retire," routine for the past 3 years, or not.  It's a business.  He's getting old.  He's wearing down.  And the Steelers are bigger than Ben Roethlisberger.

He is strolling into Canton and deservedly so.

Given his previous allegations, Big Ben pry would of them rather sign McCarron.

He's a dick, but he is right. If you are trying to win now you use that third rounder to help try to win a Super Bowl. 

 

Depends on where your team has holes, right?  The Eagles wouldn't have won the Superbowl without a talented backup QB.

 

Maybe Ben thinks Landry Jones is "all that and a bag of chips" but he's only under contract this season

Maybe backup QB is a position where the Steelers feel they need to improve to contend for a SB

 

More than likely Ben is right, their choice was motivated by searching for a replacement for him vs striving for a 2018 Superbowl, but considering Ben talks about retiring every year recently, it's a reasonable compromise to take a guy they hope at best might be a starter, and at worst might be an improvement at backup

For those who don’t speak Jerkish, this loosely translates as “WELCOME”. 

 

At moments like this I don’t feel quite as bad that the trade/draft of Ben fell through. I’d have to compromise myself to be fully behind him.

Ben forced them into this position. The Steelers have a good roster. They probably don't feel like leaving themselves open to a position where Ben shock retires and they are left with a lot of talent that can't win because they don't have a Quarterback. If he didn't keep talking about retiring maybe they do spend that 3rd on a "win now" player. They basically turned a receiver who is one failed test away from out of the league and who they were not gonna re-sign into a developmental QB who could be the successor. That is good roster management in my book.

Kind of a douche move. He was openly questioning his own future in the league just a few months ago.

 

....double....Colbert called his bluff and prepared for the future.........

 

Vincent Frank -YARDBARKER:

 

"Pittsburgh can’t sit back and wait for Roethlisberger to retire in order to find an eventual replacement. That makes no sense. Considered by some to be a late first-round prospect, the Steelers received tremendous value in picking up Rudolph on Day 2. For that, Big Ben should be excited. "

Ben didn’t seem happy about Rudolph joining the team that is for sure. Ben’s responses to mentoring Rudolph were also telling on how he feels. Ben will not be playing at 40 years old. I can see Ben playing two more years and then giving way to the next QB for Pitts. It could be Rudolph.

Ew. AFC powerhouses are falling and the Bills should take their place.

 

Fingers crossed.

I thought the Steelers had a bargain getting Rudolph in the 3rd rd.  Time to develop if Ben would cooperate.

i'm sure Ben would prefer to have Gettleman as his GM.

Absolutely can't stand this guy.  Such an arrogant asshat.   Hasn't changed from his days of crashing motorcycles and allegedly raping girls.  

 

With Gronk back maybe he'll give him the elbow

I don’t blame the Steelers FO for doing their due diligence and bringing in a raw QB.

 

Is Rothey THAT insecure to think Rudolph is going to unseat him!

 

He’s a douche-nozzle, pure and simple.

 

I have spoken!!!

Ben is a drama queen.  What did he think a long time successful organization is going to do when he contemplates retirement every year.

 

besides what is he worried about if Rudolph sits behind him for three years.

Landry Jones was AWFUL when Ben was out. The Steelers needed to address that as a problem.

The Steelers are smart to think that if Ben is hurt for a few games, they will need somebody. And he seems to get hurt more often as he gets older.

Even if Ben can play for a few more years, they should address the need for his eventual replacement. 

The idea that even a top pick can benefit from watching and learning is wise.

Heck, maybe they should have moved up to get somebody better.

Forcing people into positions definitely didn't work for him in the past.
