    That is very true! I see your point now... He could become the difference maker agaisnt the Bengals but yet he hasn't even carried the ball yet so anytime against the Jags would have been benifial.

    We NEED to have Reid activated and dressed very soon to see how he really does on the big stage so I'd say put BSP on the practice squad.

    He didn't want to be on our PS last year, but since he's out of football except for us, I'd think he'd stay on it to atleast keep his foot in the door.

    I'm sure he saw how Ben (or any other Qb for that natter) can be injured so being on the PS gives him a chance to be called up often.

    Tough call...on one hand, the Steelers obviously wanted to start the season with just 2 QB's on the roster, but the situation changed quickly. As much as I'd like to see some other young guys play, the position of QB is too important to risk. I say keep him for insurance...other players will be injured as the season goes on, so the PS will see plenty of activations as we go along.

    I'd hate to see us put him on the PS and see him get signed away to another team and then we're outta luck. It's a tough call either way indeed.

    I personally feel more comfortable with 3 QB's on the roster because you never know what can happen during the game. Just ask the Jets...
