1.Rogers
2.Brady
3.Manning
4.Breese
5.RG3
6.Caepernick
7.Horse Face Manning

Not saying I want these guys I hate half of them but they get the ball, and they get rid of the ball, all have strong arms and in general stay healthy.
You don't need to say Manning. Horse-face will suffice. ;)

How about we don't draft a QB in a very weak and watered down QB class? Band-aid the problem for another two years and then draft a QB in the first round when there's better prospects and/or we're picking higher.

Is that why Bradys OL got destroyed in 2 SBs. Im not buying that arguement at all. I dont for a second believe that behind an unhealthy and inconsistent OL any of thise guys would be more successful than Ben.

No problem with this whatsoever. Everybody needs a little wakeup call. Ever since the Tebow bullshit, this team has lacked focus. That said, I haven't seen this team lack the depth at the linebacking position, EVER. I see us going DE/OLB tweener in Rd.1. We need a FREAK edge rusher who torment the outsides and get into the QB's comfort zone. With James on his way out in probably his last year, we're in NEED.

Landry Jones would be a good pick in round 4....

I laughed a little when he put Peyton and Brady on that list I guess he never seen Peyton and Brady start dancing when there under pressure smh

There's only 1 QB I would choose over Ben and thats Aaron Rogers.

Bandaid will only work if you will are willing to live with 8-8 or 9-7 seasons. Ben is older now and the hits are taking more of an effect on his body,between his style of play and the offensive line problems he is bound to get injured and miss Atleast a couple of games. Batch needs to retire and Leftwich is NOT 2nd string material so draft a QB give him ample practice and attention so when Ben is injured the Steelers will be ready.
