Re: Steelers working out 4.
OK, so I'll . This QB situation is bad. Who knows when Ben will be back and that he'll be able to STAY once he returns. One shot may re-injure the rib. For sure when Leftwich comes back, he'll last maybe a quarter. (I understand now why he hadn't taken a snap in like 3 years. They didn't want him to get hurt). So we're down to Charlie. God bless him! If he gets hurt, the next in line, at this point, is Heath Miller. Love the guy, but having him play QB?
I see the Steelers riding Ben for as long as they possibly can and then maneuvering in the draft to trade up get another franchise type guy. But I have to ask why? What's wrong with acquiring a young, off the radar type guy and teaching him to play in the NFL. I look at last night's game. Picture Colin Kaepernick as a back-up or a player like him. Some here have said that a young talented player wouldn't want to be buried behind Ben and therefore all we can get are scrap heap veterans. I don't buy that in a million years.
It is almost incumbent on the organization to deal with arguably the most important position on the team. Now before it's too late. Maybe this season can be salvaged, but beyond this year, it's like playing catch with a live grenade.
One question. If they sign Burress or another receiver AND a QB (which is mandatory), who loses their job?
are working out four players, including former wide receiver Plaxico Burress
, this morning at their South Side facility.
Burress is joined by former Penn State wide receiver Derrick Williams and quarterbacks Brian Hoyer and Mike Kafka.
They were being worked out under the eye of Coach Mike Tomlin
, offensive coordinator Todd Haley
and general manager Kevin Colbert
Williams was with the Steelers
in training camp.
Hoyer, who played at Michigan State, was most the recently the No. 3 quarterback with the New England Patriots.
Kafka was a former backup with the Philadelphia Eagles who was drafted on the fourth round in 2010 from Northwestern. He was 11 of 16 for 107 yards and two interceptions in a limited appearance for the Eagles.
POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS SHOULD BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!
