Thats alot of money. Hes the "guy" in Pittsburgh though. I dont think hes awful. Hes been improving. I know if he never gets back to the Super Bowl he'lll be up there on the list of worst quarterback performance's ever in a super bowl to win a Super Bowl.
Well, they aren't going to get Manning or Brady even if they save all that money for them... I doubt they could find a guy much better than Big Ben, so why not make him your franchise QB? Afterall he already has a ring.
The guy has had one sub par season? How is he awful?
In four years he has three seasons with a QB rating over 98. Compare that with Brees who only has 1 season in 7 years with a QB rating over 96. Don't let your predetermined opinion affect your objectiveness.
He also has a Super Bowl ring.
Edit: To take it a step further he has a career rating of 92.5. Manning has a career rating of 94.7 and Brady has a career rating of 92.9. Brees has a career rating of 89.4. I don't see anything awful about Roth so far.
He may be over-paid... but he is the opposite of awful... a top 10 QB at least... if not a top 5..
you could argue any of those guys at #5.....
the top 4 might be able to move around a bit... but they are the top 4 and not too many would argue that
