Does no one remember the wallowing in mediocrity we'd been doing between Bradshaw and Ben??
It's not like Ben killed somebody. Or even raped anybody.
Hell, there's no proof he did anything wrong, especially if you actually read the Milledgeville report all the way through.
I'm not saying I prefer that they trade him, but I can certainly see the logic. Ben is tremendously valuable on the field, especially when it really matters.
But if he's not ON the field, not so much.
And while he may not have technically committed a crime, he acted like an idiot -- after already nearly getting burned LAST year. He showed extremely poor judgment, judgment he is expected to exhibit as a highly compensated team representative. So, the question is, does he screw up again? If so, what are the ultimate repercussions to the franchise?
I prefer he keeps his nose clean, and continues as the Steelers' starting QB. But I also recognize the conundrum that the organization is now in.
