Default Re: Steelers don't rule out drafting a QB in the 1st round

First off any backup worth a sh*% currently in the NFL will demand big money(something the Steelers cannot afford).Secondly Batch most likley will retire and Leftwich needs to be coaching High School football not skipping passes into Recievers at Heinz field. So that leaves the draft,if the Steelers can make a trade(to move up)and pick up a desirable QB what's wrong with that? The fact is Ben will not be around 10-12 years due to injury and the Steelers orginization sees that so they must look foward and face the fact that the Steelers can survive with a mediocre backup LB but not a mediocre backup QB
Vikes are getting exactly what they deserve. They had a couple of prospects a few years ago but they choose to gambled on Farve. They've been drafting QBs but not developing them. Webb was a sixth roung pick so I didn't expect much from him anyway.

I think we can find a servicable young QB in round two or three this year.
