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.

I guess they're thinking that he is a SB quarterback and that he is worth it.

This guy is an awful quarterback; I don't get it.

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. :shrug:

He also has a Super Bowl ring. :shrug:

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. :shrug:

What were they thinking? Are you kidding me? I love Ben, I think he's a good guy, and a good QB, but he's NOT the best QB in the NFL (which is the kind of money this is).

Thats about right for a franchise QB over 8 years. He isn't aweful. I think he is slightly overrated, and everytime the guy farts the media goes nuts, but he's still a pretty good QB.

Look i'm sure the Steelers paid what they had to pay. They can't just "start over" at the QB position. They had to get Roethlisberger resigned or they're working from square one again

But $36 million guaranteed? That's just an epic amount of money. And a reminder how flat-out dirt cheap we got Drew Brees for.

He may be over-paid... but he is the opposite of awful... a top 10 QB at least... if not a top 5..
1=P. Manning
2=T.Brady
3=D. Brees
4=C.Palmer
5=T.Romo??....D.Anderson??...J.Cutler??..... B.Rothlesburger???

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

There's no way Cutler is a top five quarterback right now. Maybe in a few years...
