Maybe we will find Jacobs is one of those gamers.

I have watched Boyd play in NFL Europe and 2 quarters with the STeelers. I am pretty confident he sucks. No way he makes the team.

I think Cowher wanted Jacobs to have another week to digest before he throws him in against 2nd string opposing team talent.

After one preseason game my opinion of Jacobs thusfar is that he sucks.
No arm strength or zip on the ball and he doesn't look very comfortable out there.

I thought he looked good. He moved when he had to and of course put the touch on the ball where only his TE could catch it.

He went a long way on beating out Boyd today.

That's a pretty tough assesment if you ask me, I remember Ben stinking it up pretty bad during the pre-season last year and he turned out O.K.!

He probably should still be a senior. But then again the sooner you start to learn...but it's very rare when lights just 'click'. Ben probably made it look too easy to a lot of college players. As 83 points out Boyd doesn't give us more. And if that's the case I'd go with the rookie. He made a couple good passes today.

Same here. He at least got us in the endzone. I think some feel this kid is fighting for our number two spot instead of number three. After this first game, I think I'll take Jacobs over Boyd.

Ben was a known quantity coming off the '04 season.

i think he was drafted as a project with lots of potential. the steelers must think a year with qb coach m. whipple can do him good.

Jacobs looked pretty stiff against the last of the Cards rookies and free agents while Boyd was up against the Phoenix second and third teams.
If you notice as well the Steelers had enough confidence in Boyd to spread the ball around and would have been better than 8-16 for 67yds if some receivers hadn't dropped some very catchable balls that were right in their hands.

The Steelers spoonfed Jacobs with some easy screen and out passes and I wouldn't get all giddy over a push pass for a TD that the TE made look better than it was.

I can tell by your spinning you are a Boyd fan and I can tell you are a Jacobs hater.

I find nothing promising out of Boyd. Boyd was around the NFL last year and played in NFL Europe just a couple of months ago. He shouldn't look as raw as Jacobs that is for certain.
