Steelers vs. Vikings
Saturday, August 19, 2006
8:00 PM - Heinz Field

Discuss the game here. Looks like Ben might not play and if he does it will be a very limited time. Vikes don't have Koren Robinson so their passing game might not be anything special. Watch out for their backup QB, Tavaris Jackson, he's a great athlete and wants to take the starting job away from Brad Johnson later this season.

Well pre-season is lame but its still Steelers football. So it still rocks. But the only thing I like the pre-season for is to see the new faces. You know the one or two free agents signings and the rookies. Now game 3 we will see more of the starters. The Starters usually get a quarter or more playing time in the third game. Oh one last thing no freakin injuries. Nothing worse then seeing a player injured in a pre-season game.

I know but I just don't like hearing about Ben getting hit. He has taken some big shots in two years. But hey we drove down and nailed the TD. Get Ben out of there. I think he is ready. Plus against the Eagles next week. Ben will get a quarter or a quarter and half of work. No need to take any further risk tonight.

Well it's not easy to kick off at Heinz because of the open end and the winds from the river. He's better than anyone else I've seen come here and do it.

And Batch is throwing on the sidelines and Troy Polamalu just came from across the field to make a tackle.

Do you think the Steelers should look to bring in another QB. I thought Jacobs might be able to hold down the 3 spot. But he is horrible tonight. Boyd just doesn't do it for me.

Humes ropped the ball with BOTH hands before he even got touched. Damn we're 0-2 already.

Ok at one point last year Big Ben and Batch were both hurt. Yea having 3 QB's is overrated. We don't have El anymore. He usually was the number 3 when we only dressed two QB's on gameday. You asking for trouble by only carrying two QB's without El on the team.

Ok whats up with being a smartass? You don't have to say sorry for having a opinion and being positive. But until Ben proves he can hold up for the whole 16 games and with Charlie "The Candle" Batch as his backup. Carrying 3 QB's is a good idea. Now if the QB's can hold up. I'm with you then only carry two.

Koop, I don't get you at times. Wasn't totally saying you were wrong. Just pointing that both Ben and Charile missed time last year.

It's not like we're crunching for roster spots (especially with Bettis and El's spots opening up) so having three isn't going to make us bend over backwards. It's easy to tell that we're not working with the two best QB's here but we're lucky to even have Batch. Most teams dont even have a decent BACKUP though so I'm pkay with whoever takes over the #3 spot.

Batch is a solid backup. But he has some trouble staying healthy.
