View Full Version : Backup QB, it's time

01-16-2013, 04:39 PM
I think this is the year we finally break ties with Lefty and Batch.
What does everyone think about Bruce Gradkowski (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/3634/Bruce-Gradkowski) ?
I remember when he was with the Raiders and he smoked us a few years back.
Also IIRC wasn't he a Pittsburgh native?

i think its too early to look for bens replacement, but definitely want lefty and batch out. gimme 1 young vet and a rookie that can run. seems like the best chance for a backup qb to step in and win is if they have the ability to run.

I think it's absolutely time for Leftwich to go. I would like to either see a veteran #2 brought in with a developmental #3 added or a young #2 with Batch as the #3. Batch was .500 as a starter this year, and you can do a lot worse for your #3.

I'm down to bring in a new guy or possibly two. In fact, I was hoping they'd keep Hoyer.

Sure, Not

How about a guy like Jerrod Johnson? I remember watching him in the preseason and he seemed to have some talent? Now, where did I see him play? hmm?

I think the Steelers will bring someone in or possibly draft a QB, as they said, changes are coming and they won't leave any stone unturned.

Would be interested in the Steelers grabbing Kansas QB Dayne Crist late. He was the Collegiate Bowl MVP, but had a pretty mixed up college career. Plenty of talent that needs developing. The Steelers don't need Ben's immediate replacement. Whoever they choose to develop could be developing for 5 years or more- so there's no point grabbing an early round QB.

Get Crist, bury him at 3rd on the depth chart, and get a back-up QB- be it Batch, Leftwich or someone outside the organisation, that can fill in if Ben goes down.

i've seen him projected as high as the 2nd in some mocks... doubt you get him in the 5th or 6th.
