Stewart never had a good throwing motion and it fell apart under pressure in big games - IMO he was better suited to play WR with some gadget plays as he was used in 1995-96

Pryor is a great athlete but (unlike Cam Newton) his throwing mechanics are horrible - and unlike NCAA ball the defenders are as fast and strong as Pryor is - hoping a great athlete with a lousy throwing motion who had success in college (Tim Tebow) will develop into a serviceable NFL QB is a foolish gamble

Steelers presumably will stay away
