Default Would trade a 4th, 5th or later rd for COlt?

I just want to gauge the curiosity of the board. I think Colt McCoy could be a decent QB if he had some weapons around him.

I think the Steelers need to get younger at that position, and instead of drafting a guy in the late rounds with no experience I would gladly take Colt to back up Ben

He would be 6th qb on the roster wouldn't he?

Ha, awesome.... Giving up a draft pick for a backup we would never want to be our starter makes no sense. Especially with the success we've had in these rounds in the past.. What if we gave up Antonio Brown for sorry ass Colt McCoy to get Big Ben Gatorade.

No way. Colt is too undersized. he can play but Batch is actually better than Colt.

NO.

I'd rather have Leftwich in, but i will McCoy's much better than Batch. I wouldn't mind taking someone near the end of the draft depending on who's left as a backup to be groomed. I really don't like our backup situation....its "just ok" for right now, but won't be for long.
I don't think anyone around here really desires McCoy to be here.
