    Get ready to disagree with me.....

    But I really think that we would be better to have Johnson and Batch back Ben up (not necessarily in that order) and to let Lefty go. Batch was on fire again, and Johnson has a lot of talent. He has a great touch on his passes and sees seams developing.

    Lefty is a china doll, and has contributed very little in the last few years. No future there, and Batch is holding his age very well.

    I thought Lefty looked really good against the Bills and may very well be one of the best backup QBs in the NFL.

    how do you cut a guy who had a 145.8 QB rating in the last game he played?

    and I believe because Lefty's injury-prone you have to go with the proven Charlie Batch as your 3rd string QB and try to sneak Johnson onto the PS. if another team claims him it will be a shame though, JJ does look like he has a lot of potential...

    I think JJ will make it to the PS easily

    If he predicted that you would disagree with him, doesn't that make him right?

    Lefty is one of the best back-ups in the league.
    Johnson looks like he has some talent, but I see him on the PS.
    We keep batch as the #3, if we keep 3 quarterbacks. He showed us last night that he can still ball and that TD toss was maybe the best throw I've ever seen him make. If we need the roster spot, I say keep him around as the assistant QB coach and bring him back if Ben or Lefty gets hurt.



    "I hate him. Everybody says I'm supposed to be polite when I talk to you all, but I hate him..." "He talks too much, he doesn't make sense, he's fat, he's sloppy, he acts like he's the best thing since sliced bread. He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    "Not too many people have personalities like that and survive in life. I don't know how he does it."

    WHy keep Batch? No one will sign him (in all likelihood). He'll be in town when we need him.

    You guys forget that when we cut batch we don't actually lose him. He sits in Pittsburgh and waits for a call from us

    If the Steelers keep 3 QBs, I think it will be Ben, Leftwich and Batch, in that order. If they keep only 2, then I think Johnson gets a spot on the practice squad.

    I think the Steelers will find a way to keep the 3 veterans.
