    If we get desperate, maybe, right now, ARE almost looks like a better option!

    I would honestly take almost any of those QB's right now. Leinart actually played pretty well in the preseason this year and didn't look bad when I saw him earlier in his career for the Cards. He'd have to take a paycut to come to Pittsburgh obviously. I think he wants to compete for a starting job, though. I wonder if the Steelers are looking for another QB. I assume the FO is thinking about it.

    @ Matt Leinart
    He's definitely better than Dixon and it's not even close. The problem is he'd probably want too much.

    We could get Brady Quinn and feed him to Defense practice squad just for a morale booster

    He's still young and has thrown for almost 4,000 yards in his career even though he's only started 17 games. What has Dixon accomplished, again?

    I'm not saying Leinart is great or anything like that, what I'm really saying is Dixon is THAT bad. Leinart could be a perfect backup.

    If we did pickup another QB and actually ended up needing him due to the injuries to Batch and Dixon, the most he would be doing for us would be handing off and some really low profile passes. We have ARE for that if it comes down to it and ARE already knows our offense or at least better than anyone they would bring in.

    Sorry, but do you honestly believe that at this stage of his football career he has an arm that can play an entire game at an NFL level? Throwing 1 ball on a gadget play does not qualify, IMO. Sure he can handoff, but the defense knows this and will stack the line of scrimmage. He is NOT an option as a QB. Emergency, maybe, if both Batch and Dixon go down in the same game, but you could say the same about Hines or anyone else who played QB even in high school. They need to sign another QB off the waiver wires.

    I think our running game is going to be that good that we could in an emergency use ARE for handing off and some dump passes. I do have to agree with you now that I've read your post. Bringing in a another QB would be a better solution. I'm not up on the NFL personale of what QB's are available so without this information my wish for another QB would be an older type player. No Tyler Palko or someone that has just as little experience as Dixon. Is there a chance of getting a QB such as Mark Bulger. I honestly can't place any current backup QB's that were once starters but still in the league and in football shape that might have been released or just waiting in the wings ?
