Default Re: Group behind Ben getting alittle crowded..

I don't want us to be in a position where part way through the season we lose Ben and Tommy (which is always a chance part way through the NFL season) and have either no-one to fall back on who knows the playbook (cos BSP has been signed by someone else) or some street free agent (e.g. Kurt Kittner!!!) who is on our practice squad. While I said in an earlier post that they took the risk with St. Pierre late in the season, cos he wasnt the most desirable QB out there, it's still a huge risk. We'd be much more likely to win this year if our top 2 guys go down with Batch on the bench. He won quite a few games with the Lions (and not always with the best supporting cast). To me it's a no-brainer with a championship caliber team like the Steelers . . . Batch is more likely to win than BSP imo.
