    Whether we like this deal or not, the Steelers really had no choice; they had developed no young stud to challenge Ben and were at an enormous disadvantage in the negotiations. The Steelers had no viable option. Given those circumstances, I think the terms are better than one would have expected.

    Viewed charitably, the contract gives the Steelers a little time to develop greater depth at QB. For 5 years, that was not a priority. It is now. Ben is concussion and injury prone. He is always one hit from being gone for the season — and what happens after that? — Ben will still get his guaranteed money, and the Steelers will pay a huge price for procrastination.
