do you think when the time comes Ben will resign with the Steelers?

He'll re-sign, but I dont know if he'll retire as a Steeler.

Yes, he'll resign because the Steelers will pay him whatever he wants. I told you not to make a poll, there is no need, we'll pay him whatever he wants.

i was just wanting to see what other fans of the other teams were thinking, not just us steeler fans because we want and know that we will but i was wanting to see if everyone felt the same.

I think he'll re-sign with the Steelers. Maybe later in his career he might leave, but he'll re-sign with the Steelers for now.

Yes, because if they let him leave I will boycott the Steelers forever and the Rooneys know there are lots of people like me. Ben's the first respectable QB we've had in 26 years. He will get paid.

He won't get a better deal because he'll never hit free agency, so if other teams offer him deals that would be tampering.

I'm pretty sure that he will. I mean why leave a city when you have such a good thing going.

He wouldn't leave Pittsburgh. He's always said he loves it there.

I doubt he retires with them unless because of injury. Not many quarterbacks stay with the team, because quarterbacks stay in the game too long. The team has plans for the future and most quarterbacks (i.e. Favre) stay past their prime. Montana was never the same in KC, and there's many examples I could think of. Warren Moon in Houston, etc.

He will resign no matter what. Pittsburg loves him, and if he leaves they will not be happy. Unhappy fans = less mula. So they will pay him whatever he wants, even if they have a tough time deciding, cause if the lose Big Ben, then they lose money

when is his contract up...he'd look great in B&G.

Black and gold. He already wears it.

Of course, I know you're just trying to bait Steeler fans, because even Dan Snyder can't snatch up an up and coming QUARTERBACK in free agency.

the steelers will give him a huge contract. there's no way they're letting him go. he'll probably be a steeler for most of his career.

Really, is there any other meaning to B&G?

Burgandy and Gold. Redskins colors. And Big Ben would look terrible in Washington.

Yeah, we can all say "Oh, he'd look good in (fill in your favorite teams colors)!" but the only colors you'll see him in is Black and Gold. He won't play anywhere else anytime soon.

The guy was drafted to be the franchise Qb and he has had great success in Pittsburgh. It's extremely rare for a player of his caliber to sign else where after his rookie contract is up. He'll most likely sign one of those 10 year, $100 million contracts when his rookie contract expires.

Immaculate Tackle

The only reason a QB of his caliber would hit free agency is because of a shoulder injury (Brees, Culpepper) or age.

The days of letting go of guys like Woodson and Kevin Greene are over. I can't even remember the last pro-bowl player the Steelers have let hit free agency. The Randle Els and the Chris Hopes can leave -- they are not special and the Steelers didn't have the space to re-sign them -- but the Roethlisbergers will be locked up.

No whats sad? Your like the third different person to say that. I guess you guys dont have that much confidence in Jason Campbell.


Just adding my two cents here but, IMO Campbell will not make a great NFL QB.

When he wrote "resign" he meant give Roethlisberger a second contract, not retire a Steeler.

Edit: the poll used to say "resign" (I think). Did a mod change it?

I have faith in a proven super bowl winning QB moreso than our unproven sophmore.. If that makes Campbell a bust already then i'm missing your logic. I would love to see big ben in DC but I highly doubt it..

What are you talking about? I said that in my personal opinion Campbell wont make a great NFL Qb. That statement itself had nothing to do with the whole Big Ben topic. My logic behind this is... That he has bad footwork and mechanics, he holds the ball way too long, he only had one successful college season, and he has adequate arm-strength.

Hmmm, no, he must have. I changed it early on because the first option was like "no matter what, he will retire a Steeler." But never the title. Weird.

I still dont understand what you are trying to say here buddy. Ben Roethlisberger will be a Free agent after the 2010 season. So if you signed him wouldnt that mean you dont have that much confidence in Jason Campbell? I mean Campbell would be 29 by then.

No Way Ben Roethlisberger will stay with the steelers. He's become the face of the steelers.

:? :? do you mean no way he won't stay?

Truely one of the few steelers i really like. I love the fact that he rides w/o a helmet and he doesnt give a ****. I love the fact that he still won't rule out riding again. Who gives a crap what those pompous analysts on ESPN think? He enjoys riding motor cycles, let him do it if he wants.



I always wear my seatbelt but if I rode a cycle I probably wouldn't wear a helmet. It probably feels so awesome to ride w/o a helmet and just have your hair blowing in the wind at 65 mph.

Anybody who thinks the Steelers would even letting him go into the last year of his contract is kidding themselves. He won't even come close to hitting free agency.
