Default Steelers,Big Ben talk big extension?

http://www.fannation.com/truth_and_rumors/nfl

The Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger's agent have had early talks about a contract extension for the young quarterback. While it appears nothing will be done this season, the machinery is gearing up for what should be the largest contract in the organization's history. Roethlisberger's next deal looms large over the organization already and might be one reason they won't or can't pay six-time Pro Bowl guard Alan Faneca enough to keep him here beyond the 2007 season.

Always important to get your franchise quarterback under contract for the long-term. Once that's settled, the rest of the team-building process is a lot easier.

I would agree but I would wait till after this season to see what he does I know it said that it appears nothing will be done this season which would be a smart move IMO wait it out and then go from there.

I love Big Ben personally. He is studly!

I think the Stillers will be a very formidable team this year.

i dont think he has proven that he is worth a huge contract, if he has a good year though it would help me believe more in him

I wouldnt be in a hurry to ink him just yet. He's a good player but that injury and his immaturity to blame others doesnt sit well with me

I think the Steelers need to wait since Roethlisberger can't stay healthy for a full season. They could wind up making a huge mistake. Also, they need to make sure his off field judgment is up to par.

I tend to agree, he's what I'd call a good QB but nothing more. If the kid showed he could carry a team I'd be happy to seem him get a massive contract but really, can he?

I know he's had a few great games, but he's always had a stellar supporting cast.

Polamalu is an interesting player, I think he's overrated, very good, but not as good as some people think.

Don't know when Parker's is out, but I'd much rather sign him up to a big deal then Big Ben. If I was their FO, I'd wait till the end of this year before doing anything rash.

Polamalu is a liability at times in coverage. Peyton manning goes after him like its nobody's business.

Ben is a much better player than most give him credit for. Everyone says that he never takes over games or carries the team but how many QBs do in their first few years in the league? In Ben's first two seasons he was asked to do very little in terms of throwing the ball. His job was to not throw interceptions and he did it well. When the playoffs hit he got alot more responsibility and handled it very well. He really did carry the Steelers through the games leading up to the Superbowl.

Last year he was going to be given alot more of an opportunity but he was plagued with injuries and the O-line played horribly as well. He was sacked more in one game against the Ravens than he was in the playoffs. Not saying he didn't play bad himself but at the same time the entire blame doesn't belong on him.

With Tomlin and new OC Bruce Arians offense Ben should do better. Alot of the plays will be run out of shotgun forms which Ben has played alot better in. Plus the offense will actually be designed for a runner like Willie instead of Bettis. This offense will feature more spread offense than the Steelers are used to which should help Ben.

I'm expecting Ben to have better stats than usual because of the spread offense and he will have most of the responsibility in the offense. This season will be a major test for him. He's going to have a chance to prove himself as a franchise QB in a new offense built to suit him. If he has another good season he will give himself alot of leverage in negotiations next offseason.

Polamalu isn't in coverage very often to even be a liability. Alot of the time he is either blitzing or lined up with the linebackers. It wasn't very often he had deep coverage. Thats something he is probably going to have to improve on if we are to run a full scale Cover 2 eventually. When he has been in coverage he has always been way better in zone than in man though.
