There are some decent mid round qbs. They should focus on one to develop them for the future. Look how well it worked for the redskins this year with cousins.

What was wrong with Neil O'Donnell?

The Redskins got lucky with Cousins.

We need a nice back-up to fill the need of "if Ben gets hurt". Someone who spent more than two years starting in the NCAA would be a nice option; preferably someone from a big school. Landry Jones would be a nice option.

As for "after Ben era"... it's far too soon. That shouldn't be worried about until the 2016 NFL Draft.

Living in Louisville I'm pretty fond of Teddy Bridgewater, but I hope Ben can play until he's 36.

I wouldn't mind AJ McCarron when he comes out next year. I think he would be a solid mid-round choice

Next season is when maybe this question becomes a reality because Big Ben will be entering 2014 as a 32 yr old QB. So what ever freshman/RS Freshman QB are out there could end up being the pick. So 2017 is probably the year the Steelers draft a QB between rounds 1-2. Unless they get some gift of a QB in the 2 yrs from now.

You really think 5 years is how long we will wait? I love Ben but chances of him lasting til 36 given the pounding he has taken year after year has got to be slim.

Trust me there is a big difference between 31 and 36! Wink

To be exact, I think it's a 5 years difference!! Laughing Wink

I know what you mean though, which is why this quick passing game will lengthen Big Ben's career as long as our offensive lineman stay healthy too, which almost never happens!!

Love Teddy...but if that guy keeps playing like he did this year we will have to use a high 1st rounder on him

If Ben is still producing 90+ QBR and 13+ games a year plus playoff games then yes. If he's has some god forbid season ending injury then yes of course the search could start a sooner.

I would spend a 5th or 6th on a QB this year.

I wouldnt worry about the post Ben era for another 3 years or so....unless we finish with a really high draft pick before that and have a shot at a great talent at QB.

With our O, we need a pretty Big QB to survive.

Thought on Collin Klien to see if we can turn him into a QB or end up using him at a different position?

Don't see an NFL future for him, although I thought the same about Tebow Laughing Laughing Laughing

THIS! That dude lit up Florida who was supposed to have a very solid D on every single level and two safeties and two ILBs drafted within the first 4 rounds.
