    Daunte?

    With the possibility of problems with Ben coming for this season, does anyone think Daunte Culpepper might be an option as a back-up QB?

    He was brought in to work out the same time Leftwich was- but from memory was asking for a shot at starting & therefore was passed over by Byron.

    Now Daunte is free again, and there might be a need. Is he an upgrade over Batch?

    If Leftwich isn't released in Tampa- is Daunte a genuine option?

    Could he even start if things go South for Ben?

    I would take Dennis Dixon over Daunte Culpooper anyday of the week. Culpooper isn't going to win games for you, so you might as well develop a young prospect if the need arises.

    Daunte at this stage of his career is truly terrible.

    He's also played on some truly terrible teams. Dixon would be option #1, but Chadman thinks that if Ben is in the poo, that Daunte isn't the absolute worst option as a back-up, if Dixon doesn't elevate his game.

    I'd rather keep Batch than Culpepper.

    Leftwich already knows the offensive system, I think the Steelers would feel more comfortable bringing Lefty back to compete with Dixon while Batch competes with a rookie for the #3 spot.

    RANDLE EL!!!!

    The SPIRAL from SB XL still makes me smile.

    he could probably hit a few open receivers, or run for the yardage. Obviously this isnt my choice for starting QB and i do think Ben will be okay....just sayin.....

    Dennis Dixon>Lefty.. Leftwich looked horrible in Tampa... I know Tampa is ehhh but he was missing wide open WR's by a mile. Lefty knows the offense but if he had to go for 2 or 3 games it would be a nightmare.

    You want to bring 5 QB's to camp?

    How about Lefty competes with Dixon? Whichever one wins is #2. Whichever one loses is #3. Done. Forget Batch and a rookie (well, maybe a UDFA QB rookie as a camp arm, but that's it).


    If Roquan Smith falls to late teens, trade 1.28 & 2.60 to SEA for 1.18 & 4.120:

    1.18 LB Roquan Smith
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    4.120 RB Royce Freeman
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling
    7.246 OT Brett Toth

    If not:

    1.28 LB Leighton Vander Esch
    2.60 C/G Billy Price
    3.92 FS Jessie Bates
    5.148 DT Ken Norton
    5.165 TE Chris Herndon
    7.220 RB Ito Smith
    7.246 WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling
