    We all know about the fiasco between Eli Manning and the Chargers. Here is what Ben Roethlisberger said about being drafted by the Steelers:
    So many prognosticators had you going to the Giants before the trades. Any disappointment not going there?

    Absolutely not. I am happy being a Pittsburgh Steeler and I think black and gold are my two new favorite colors. To me, it is not where you play that is important, it is all about playing football. It is my dream to play and I'm not going to be picky about where. I just want to play football.

    I think the entire audience at the draft said it best when they announced the Chargers number one pick.

    Further proof that Big Ben is a great individual as well as a great football player. I'm sure everyone remembers the letter he sent to Saban after Miami played here a few years ago.
