Default Time to look for the future

Big Ben is not going to play forever. I think it is time to look in the draft for a suitable QB for the future. Byron Leftwich is awful and no other way to say it!!

I've been saying this for 2 years now. The QB situation has now slapped the Steelers in the face

Well, easy to say now. I thought Lefty was the right choice going in. Batch has looked damn shaky when I've seen him in the past. At his age, I don't think it would have been any better.

What is so sad about this. The Steelers d was awesome. Offensive line was good. Running game was good. Leftwich is terrible and should never start again. He wouldn't make a cfl team here in Canada. Brutal!!

Maybe I'm missing someone, but I can't think of one #2 QB in the league that I'd be comfortable stepping into the offense and leading us to 30 pnts a game. He's not great, but #2s in the league are bad all around. Byron has to at least be in the top half of #2s in the league. Idk what people expect out of a #2 QB

Leftwich and Batch both need to be gone at the end of the season. I can not believe how badly Batch was just disrespected. He has been a consummate professional in his role as a backup for years. For Tomlin to make Batch watch that fiasco helplessly from the bench is an abomination. I am disgusted at the lack of confidence shown towards Batch.
