View Full Version : 2 or 3 Quarterbacks

You think we should carry 2 or 3? The only thing that scares me about carrying 2 is that if something happens to Ben and Charlie steps in, we're going to have to hurry up and find someone either off our practice squad or have Hines step in as backup, which would hurt our WR corps. I say we definately keep either Omar or Shane on our PS if we're going to do this.

I say 3

3. Even though Hines can help on the gadget plays, we'll still need a 3rd QB in case of Emergency.

I say 2. And from what I've seen Cedric Wilson would be the 3rd if he was needed. He was like the top rated QB coming out of high school or something.

I would say three. We have two extra roster spots because of Randle El and Bettis so it's not like keeping an extra one is going to put a huge crunch on spots. I dont think that Jacobs or Boyd are the answer though, both havent looked good at all and we might want to consider looking for one elsewhere.

Definetly 3. We need Hines at WR...and also, it needs to stay that way. I say keep Shane.

I say three. But I think it will be two. I want a third with some timing down with our wr. If we pick up one later , who knows??

Either way we'll keep one on the PS Im sure...I'd feel more comfortable with 3 but all the latest rumors are that it'll be 2. Neither Omar or Shane have stepped up enough though to this point to warrant that 3rd spot but I guess that's what developmental players are for right? :rolleyes:

Usually it's 3, but I'm not too impressed with Boyd or Jacobs. I could see them carrying 2 and putting Jacobs on the PS.

They should consider bringing back Rod Ruthford. The team cut him a few months ago but he knows the system and I'd take him over these two guys.

I would saa 3 too, just because Ben has shown he a little case of the injury bug as well as Batch. I agree with Prosdo, I'm not impressed with Boyd or Jacobs as well. At this point I would be happy with that other guy the Steelers had for awhile as a 3rd stringer from Boston College I think... I can't remember his name but he looked better then both Boyd and Jacobs put together! I'm sure someone out there knows who I am talking about.

I think you're talking about Brian St. Pierre. I think he is with the Ravens still.

That's it, Thanks Prosdo! I liked him, he impressed me during the preseasons when he was here. Maybe the Steelers could offer up Boyd and Jacobs for him ;)
