Like I said, I'll take Jacobs over Boyd.

I dont know.....I really thought Omar Jacobs was a steel for us.....He just doesnt seem to have what it takes....Maybe its because hes a rookie....I mean........the last rookie QB we had was Big Ben.....and he never really played like a rookie.........Maybe we are missing the big picture that rookie QB's are suppose to struggle and learn, not win like 14 strait games and win the superbowl in your second year......Maybe Omar is just an average rookie????

You answered your own question. How do you know he's not a steal? Your putting Roethlisberger and Jacobs in the same sentence. That's just crazy. We are talking about our third string QB. Were you expecting this kid to come in and pass up Ben and Batch? Patience. Let the kid learn. I can't imagine the Steelers FO expecting this kid to take over the second string job in his rookie year.

im just trying to say that Jacobs is doing fine for a rookie Qb, and that maybe we are asking too much of him right now.....I think he should be our third string and hopefully trade bait in 3 years..

For the record, I am not at all comfortable going with 2 QBs for the simple reason that both Ben and Batch, especially Batch, seem to be plagued with injuries every season thus far. Not a good situation at all.

Somehow they are going to have to get Omar jacobs onto the PS for a couple of years - its pretty obvious that he has talent but the Steelers F.O feel that he is a worse bet at this time than a free agent they could pick up off the street if it came to that.
