    Hey! What about Cutler!? Is he no longer a franchise quarterback!?

    Yes, just like in Denver, they ship out the bad apples.
    I think the players have forced their way out of denver and not the other way around.

    Edit: I do think Denver has a classy org. though.

    Just to make the AFC West more interesting. Part of me hopes the Broncos blow the draft this year, part of me doesn't. It's a love/hate relationship. Though if my Chargers don't make the playoffs I root for whomever is from the AFC West, am I alone in that?

    Roethlisberger would make the Raiders into contenders. The Chargers 14-game win streak against them would suddenly be in jeopardy. I'm relieved to hear that this deal is likely not gonna happen.

    Once the 6 game suspension is up, the Raiders are significantly a better team. I, for one, hope it doesn't happen.

    Chances are he might go to Arizona instead of Jokeland:

    Same here... Big Ben has been pretty good against the Broncos in his career. I do not want to see him twice a year. Plus I hate the guy so it would make me hate Oakland even more.

    I hate the Raiders but this trade works for them. They get a QB, finally and can draft a new corner with the Steelers 1sr rounder. The steelers get that corner they are seeking and have a real shot at Claussen.

    I like this trade from a objective point of view, as a Bronco fan I hate it.

    Ben Roethlisberger to Oakland Raiders a Done Deal?

    According to “Kobe,” a former radio jockey in Pittsburgh, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders have completed a deal, pending league approval, that would send suspended quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to Oakland for Nnamdi Asomugha and a swap of first-round picks.

    Reports early this week had pointed to the Steelers openly shopping Roethlisberger, and even going as far to call teams with top 10 picks in Thursday’s NFL draft to gauge interest.

    More specifically, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network, had hinted at trade talks heating up between the Steelers and Raiders, and they may have finally come to fruition.

    After his most recent run-in with the law, Roethlisberger seemed to have fallen out of favor with not only the fans in Pittsburgh, but the almighty Rooney family which eats, sleeps, and breathes everything associated with Steeler football.

    The deal, if true, would help both sides fill an immediate need, while allowing both to maintain a first-round pick to further help their team through the draft.

    Oakland has been a team in shambles in recent years, and has been in search of a franchise quarterback since the departure of Rich Gannon. Roethlisberger fills that need, and allows Oakland to move on from the disaster that was Jamarcus Russell.

    Meanwhile, the Steelers, who have had one of the less-than-stellar secondaries over the last few seasons, gain one of the best corners in the NFL (2nd best by my count) in Nnamdi Asomugha, while also ridding themselves of the dark cloud hovering over the franchise stemming from Roethlisberger’s recent behavior.

    The move also allows them to move up ten slots, to the number eight pick, where they could get their hands on the next franchise quarterback in Jimmy Clausen.

    It’s rare to trade a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback, but it’s even more rare to replace him immediately, and the Steelers have a chance to do that here. It is a must for the Steelers to move Roethlisberger this off-season, and this may be the best deal they get to do so.

    It’s also rare that you can trade for a franchise quarterback. Well, at least before this season with Donovan McNabb going to Washington. You don’t get these opportunities everyday so, if the rumors are true, both teams must jump at this chance.
