this will be 100% fullfilled. either draft or a FA.

If healthy, Leftwich would be good backup.

Let's hope all Steelers are learning a new offensive system next year.

If Byron could stay healthy he'd be a fine backup to Ben. Dixon will be gone after this year is up more than likely so you could have the same 3 for next year, Ben, Byron, and Charlie backing them up.

I would say though that within the next 3 years you may want to start looking at Ben's replacement for the future.

I have doubts Dixon will be here after this year as well. Especially with a seemingly new emphasis on mobile QBs (Cam, Vick, RGIII next year) someone will want to sign him.
I like Leftwich as a second, injuries have been unfortunate for him though.

We'd have to spend at least a second round pick on Foles, don't see that happening.

I don't think we'll bother this year apart from maybe very late on or FA.

We could use bunch of O lineman, middle linebackers and maybe a nose tackle though . . . . oh and a kicker!:helmet:
