There is alot of talk about which QB should be Steelers backup:
Batch: 11 year vet that seams to be OK with the backup roll: can be another set of eyes for Big Ben. Know the offense well enough if Bid gose down for a game or two, can win those games.
Leftwich: 6 year pro who wants to be become an starter again the the league. Is just learning the offernse and once the season starts will get NO reps with the 1st unit. Has played in the league and could win some games this year, but more than likely will be gone next year. (i.e. Rent a player)
Dixon: Rookie that has some skills, but paring injuy to Big Ben will not see the field for the next 9 YEARS: The question is: WHAT profiit is it to the Steelers if he ride the pine to the next four years, only to leave for a opperunity to play QB else were.
Conclusion: Keep Leftwich as the number #2 UNTIL Batch is heathy, Move Batch to #2 and more Leftwich to #3 then deside with on of the two whats to be part of the Steelers next year and sign him. Which means Dixon is the odd man out, and find someone; if anyone to be #3 next year:
REMEMBER: Big Ben hasn't play a complete season in four years: So this decision is IMPORTANT
The only thing about this is that the Steelers would have wasted another 5th round pick this year. They could have used that pick of the full back from WVA and cut Davis the year:
BTW: But the Steelers could have to have a comittment from Batch that he will re-sign with them next year or release him this year:
