    Help Wanted: Serviceable Back-up QB

    The past 2 weeks have exposed a major chink in the
    Steeler armor: lack of a competent back-up at the QB slot. What Leftwich and Batch were capable of doing a couple of years ago--winning an occasional game in the pinch--seems like a task which is now too much for them. Failing to develop a younger, more capable back-up for Ben has been a very costly failure on the part of the Steeler braintrust. Sadly, it may be fatal as far as this season goes.

    Unfair to judge Lefty on a game where he played with broken ribs and Batch in a game with 5 lost fumbles.

    You gotta good point, but do you really feel any level of confidence in either of these guys?

    Confidence is a strong word but have you seen the other teams' backups? Look who is backing up Brees, Rivers, Peyton, Flacco, etc. MUCH worse than ours.

    Help Wanted: Serviceable Back-up QB

    We've waited too long to start grooming a young guy! With Ben's history we need to start ASAP!

    Even so Batch had plenty other chances and just proved he has nothing left.

    Well that's those teams dang fault and ours also for the crap we keep at qb. Also those qbs you mentioned seem to stay healthy every year and are not scraped off the ground each week. Ben does not! Yes I know Manning got hurt a few years back but how many years did he play without missing a game ?
