 OT: Big Ben being shopped...
According to PFT, at least one team drafting in the top 10 has expressed interest in trading for Big Ben. Let's see:

1. Rams........ I think it's unlikely they trade the #1 overall pick for Ben, especially with his impending suspension and history.
2. Lions.... have their franchise QB.
3. Tampa...... maybe, but same argument as Rams, + how many QBs can fit on one roster?
4. Redskins.... nope, just traded for McNabb.
5. Chiefs.... nope, just spent big money on a QB last year, too early to call it a mistake.
(This is where it gets interesting...)
6. Seattle... Hmmm. Could happen, I guess, but they don't seem ready to give up on Hasselbeck yet
7. Browns... In the same division? I doubt it.
8. Raiders... Sure, it could happen. I could see it in a heart beat.
9. Bills... So here is my point. If you're Buffalo, why the heck not? Imagine a division with Brady, Sanchez, Henne and Roethlisberger. Wow.
10. Jags... Spending big money already on their QB, and might find it difficult to unload him (Garrard).

Big Ben a Bill? Granted, it's a stretch, but if there really is a top 10 team asking, my guess is it's them or the Raiders.

Big Ben has a good arm and two Super Bowl rings. Still, I believe the charges were as close to "rape" as you can get.

Henne has what, 12 NFL starts. Sanchez 16.. Ben and Tom have multiple Rings...


I like Henne as much as the next guy, and hope he is the next great... But I cant put him at that level just yet...

I agree. I wasn't trying to put Henne or Sanchez in the same class; just thinking about what the impact of adding Ben to the division would be. Although reading my post, I certainly see how I gave that impression. Many people think that AFCE is already one of the toughest divisions in football. Adding Ben to Buffalo would be a step in closing the gap between them and the rest of us.

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback also was ordered to undergo a comprehensive behavioral evaluation. Commissioner Roger Goodell will evaluate Roethlisberger's progress before the season and might consider reducing the suspension to four games.


could be four games, i am hoping for the full six though.

The Jaguars finding a hard time to get rid of Garrard? It's an uncapped year. They can release him, pay him his money and move on if they're that worried about it.
The Bills have said no, the Rams have said no. If a trade happens, I think it's with Oakland or Jacksonville. I don't think you trade him though. He's a magnificent player, and this trade talk is probably just sending him a message that he's not untouchable.

The Bills said no? Source? As for Garrard, I didn't say they couldn't cut him; I said they might have a hard time getting rid of him... meaning, finding a way to trade him somewhere. Besides, they have a invested a lot in him.

I agree with this also. I think Ben has got one more time to screw up and Pittsburgh will get him out of town.

I keep reading and hearing on the radio that there is more than just the incidents that most of us know about. Ben has got to realize he is about to blow his career away.
