whaaaaaaa ... oh well, it'll be cool watching them in a couple preseason games, other than that, I don't really care.

The only thing that would bother me is If we have to see them at any point during this season as a starter.

1-ben is hurt for a decent amount of time.

2-charlie batch is not back yet ... which means that it is early in the season.

Ben being injured at the beginning of the season for an extended amount of time ... with this schedule ... there is no way we can compete.

I'd personally prefer Culpepper, but we'll see who wins the backup spot. I like Culpepper's mobility and he's a smart QB. He hasn't played much in recent seasons but I think he'd be a good fit in the Steelers system.

I wonder if they did inquire about Kelly Holcombe. He did retire this offseason, but about $200,000k just to sit on the bench isn't too bad..is it? Might help pay for gas prices.

So hopefully they just pay plane fare to bring both into camp?

If they actually sign one of these guys to a contract where do the Steelers get the $$ under the cap? - does Batch not count against the cap if he goes on IR (which IMO is where this may be heading)

I know what you mean. It will be really strange seeing either of those names on a Steelers jersey.

as cool as i think it will be to see both of them in stillers jerseys, i dont really understand it. What is going to happen when batch comes back? is batch going to stay as the 2, and culpepper or leftwich (the one that makes the team) becomes the 3? what will we do with dixon? he can be a dynamic player for us and i think he deserves a chance on the team. so then do we keep 4 quarterbacks? doubtful, last year we started the season with 2, and st pierre on the practice squad. we wont be able to put dixon on the practice squad, hed get picked up. so what do we do when batch comes back is what i want to know

I never liked either one of them, this is going to take some getting used to.
