Report: Steelers have reached their “tipping point” with Big Ben

Charles Robinson of YahooSports.com tweets that the Steelers are at their “tipping point” with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

This is what Robinson tweeted:

Roethlisberger’s job w/ Steelers could B at tipping point. Source says onslaught of fan discontent over Ben has shaken Pittsburgh ownership.

By tipping point, we can only assume that Robinson meant that the Steelers might make a change. While it still seems likely that Big Ben will be on Pittsburgh’s roster in 2010, maybe the team will start listening to offers for the QB later this month at the draft. If they were to trade Roethlisberger, the Steelers would be left with Charlie Batch and youngster Dennis Dixon.

If the Steelers wanted to punish Big Ben for embarrassing their franchise, they can always send him to Oakland (i.e. the NFL’s equivalent to hell). Either that, or they could always trade him to Buffalo because the odds of him getting in trouble in that city are slim to none. Even T.O. became irrelevant in Buffalo.
