    EXACTLY, tburg68. They are either a bunch of veterans without a career anywhere close to Lefty's or young kids with no experience who you would never put in to start such an important game. I love speaking with most of the people on this website as they are usually well-informed and great Steelers fans, but on THIS topic it is a ship of fools with RealDealSteel as the captain. Worst backup in the league? Not even close.

    We are extremely lucky to have Lefty.

    If they put the ball in his lap and say win the game and he throws 4 picks, then that's the Steelers fault. All he needs to do is not turn the ball over, stay out of 3rd and long, convert 3rd downs and play within his abilities.

    But as some of you have said and I agree, the Steelers will win or lose this game on how well the defense defends flacco and rice.

    he came out stone cold, without a snap since training camp and did an ok job. with all the reps he took in practice, he will be fine.

    Something tells me that Tim Tebow won't be backing up for much longer

    Part of that post is the disgust I feel for the situation we are in. But There are a bunch of bad back up QB's in the league. bad meaning that on a scale of 1-10 they are just a two. And Lefty is one of them. I've seen Lefty with reps. There was a reason a couple of years ago that Batch was chosen over Lefty. Nothing has changed in my book. Lefty wasn't good enough two years ago to be the backup starter in case of emergency.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    instead of crying about how terrible lefty is, or how terrible batch is, why dont youy place the blame on the people that are actually responsible for our backup qb situation.
    tomlin and colbert have had numerous opportunities to improve this psosition and havent done a thing..........cry about them.
    lefty and batch will perform to the best of their abilities. that's all you can ask of them.

    Yeah there was a reason that Batch was chosen over Lefty in 2010. Lefty sprained his MCL in the pre-season finale and could not play. Up to that point, Lefty was the starter who was going to replace Ben during his suspension.

    And you are completely sounding the retreat bugle again after being called out on a total lack of knowledge. You first stated that Lefty was the "worse (sic) backup in the league" but now have him merely in the same category as those on the list provided by tburg68. Comparing Lefty negatively to Kellen Clemons and the other dregs on that list is a joke.

    Please tell us what backup QBs in this league you would rather have starting for us in the playoffs come January if Ben could not go for some reason.
