Quote:
Jason LaCanfora of CBSSports.com reports that the Steelers fear that they will be without quarterback Byron Leftwich “a while” because of the rib and shoulder injuries Leftwich suffered in the 13-10 loss to Baltimore on Sunday night. Per LaCanfora, they expect to work out quarterbacks this week although there’s no word if Tyler Palko or Brodie Croyle are on the list.

Croyle retired. And he's awful.

Palko is working as a financial representative with Northwestern mutual. And he's also awful.

I'd prefer old man Charlie Batch if I were Steeler nation.

What is Vince Young up to? I'd definitely prefer him over Batch. I don't think Batch should be starting any of these upcoming games. That said, even though I hate the Steelers I'd be rooting for him. Dude has the word underdog tattooed on his forehead.

Is Dennis Dixon still out there?

May not know the offense but I believe he is familiar with the WRs.

We signed him to our PS last week.

We'll trade him for a 1st.

Vince Young failed with noted QB gurus Andy Reid and Chan Gailey. I defended VY post Titans but failing to prosper with those two? Ouch.

Not to mention he's poor between the ears. He'd have a really hard time preparing to start off the street.

Yeah I wish we could have seen what VY would do under Gailey's guidence (look at what Gailey did with Fitz) but he just doesnt seem to be able to pick up the playbook.

I'm going to say Pittsburgh will sign either Palko or go for a vested vet like Garrard

But at this stage, who is there? Tyler Palko? Brodie Croyle? David Garrard?

Pickings are slim for QBs right now, might as well go with one who has won in some form at the NFL level. Scale down the playbook, let VY do his thing, hope that he finds some lightning in a bottle...

I don't see Garrard as being that bad of an option, relatively. He was leading the Dolphins QB derby prior to his injury. He claims 100% health now.

Billy Volek
Troy Smith
Sage Rosenfels
Donovan McNabb
J.P. Losman
Mike Kafka
Brian Hoyer
Max Hall
Richard Bartel

... Few guys I can see being at least looked at by Pittsburgh

85% healthy Garrard is better than a 100% healthy Charlie Batch.

Well that sucks. Batch is definitely a better option than Tyler Palko. Heck I might be a better option than Palko...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

Convince the Jets to cut Tebow then sign him (if it's legal). He's way better than what i've seen from Leftwich. I think he could learn more behind Ben than any other QB in the league and be a great replacement should he go down again in the future. He plays hard nosed Steeler football.

Yes! Garrard over Leftwich AGAIN!

Troy Smiff is their best bet, IMO.
