^^^^give me one of these over Batch or Lefty
Hoyer was here and we released him, because he couldn't beat out the old man or they didn't have the cash to keep him.
Signing anyone that is good requires money and the Steelers don't have it to spend right now on FA's. We would have to make deep cuts to get under the cap in order to do any business with FA's and besides we need to sign our own first.
Now they can possibly sign some stumble bums on the cheap, but it won't help the team much unless some luck is involved. We just got Parker which is a joke, hell, they could put blinders on Charlie and he still would out produce this bum.
Our defense was #1 and we went 8-8. I guarantee you if you make our offense #1 we are far better than 8-8. Every league rule added in the last decade favors the offense. We got a top 5 QB. Why can Steeler fans and the Steelers themselves never get comfortable with the idea of letting the offense being the dominant unit on the team?
Vet min for Batch would be $940,000
Lot of $$$$ for an aging often injured 3rd stringer
I like Bruce Gradkowski
Made $1.9 last year, and could be your backup for cheap
Brady Quinn and Matt Moore interest me.
Got no problem with Batch being 3rd string QB & mentor to a young QB, while still being Ben's sounding board on gameday. Batch doesn't need to be the #1 backup to still be on the team. Whenever Ben comes off the field after going 3 & out, or after a turnover, it seems Batch is there with him to go over what just happened. He could very well be Ben's calming influence.
He played 2 games in 2012- the Steelers lost the fumble-athon to the Browns, then beat the Ravens.
How many back-up QB's beat the Ravens last year?
