    A bit less without Bryant on the field. Wheaton can get open on underneath / intermediate stuff. A guy like that is more effective when you have a Bryant to take the top off the D.

    If Bryant's suspension overlaps with Bell's, this offense is going to be hurting for the first two weeks. You can easily lose one or another for a limited time, but losing both is going to hurt.

    That's it exactly. Wheaton can get open coming out of his breaks, but he can't (or at least he doesn't) blow by corners vertically the way that Bryant does. Wheaton will never scare anybody where...

    Both statements are true. Unfortunately, Wheaton can't separate the way that Bryant can.

    Right now, the talent pool of available QBs is incredibly shallow:

    I agree. I'd imagine that both play about 60% of the snaps. The "starter" vs #3 distinction will likely not be too significant. I think both will contribute - Wheaton looks effective out of the...

    Yes, it is. The Steelers have plenty of cap room. Timmons is a veteran and one of the better players on what looks to be a bad defense. If you are going to trade for a backup QB, you trade a...

    He'll never be Woodley and probably, sadly, won't even be Jason Worilds. But he did get to the QB a bit in limited time last year. I think you hope that he has a Clark Haggans type year - 6-8 sacks...

    I really don't like this. Vick is not a good QB anymore. He had a 68.3 quarterback rating last year and averaged 5 yards per attempt. He may be the best guy on the scrapheap, but ugh.

    I agree on Hubbard - he looks awful and doesn't seem to be strong enough.

    I've seen some positives Finney. He needs to lose a bit more weight, but I think you could do worse for a 9th lineman. ...

    Legursky is coming off a knee injury, so I don't think he is a lock. If he does make it, I think he takes Wallace's spot as the top backup. I'd think that Finney could still take Hubbard's spot.

    Looks like Legursky will back up Wallace.

    Since both Adams and Golson started camp on the PUP, both can start the season on the PUP list, which keeps you out for roughly 6 weeks. At some point, there is a window where the team needs to...

    Well played. You never miss an opportunity.

    When all is said and done, the question on this roster is do you keep 9 LBers or 10.
