A lock? Do you know the franchise has only retired two numbers?

granted, I don't think they'll be handing out #12 or #7 jerseys to any rookie qbs any time soon or after Ben retires.

Mayfield won't have half the potential Landry Jones did as a rookie. At this point, Landry is something akin to what Alex Smith was six or seven year ago. I'd rather have Jones next year than either.

Lol, Baker Mayfield is twice the QB Landry Jones ever was, I watched most of games at OU and Landry couldn’t hold Bakers jock.

Ben is not going anywhere. He’ll play out his contract, 2 more seasons, at least. If he did retire, you get Kirk Cousins.


Agree. Cousins is the prize this off seasom.

I wouldn’t touch Taylor with a 10 foot pole.
I’d be good with Smith or Cousins.
The QB I would want isn’t from Oklahoma he goes to Oklahoma State. I would like Josh Allen in the second if Ben returns.
Mayfield reminds me of Manziel, no thanks. Small, runs around and throws it around like it’s street football, that doesn’t transition to NFL success.

We beat NE on the way to both of those And then Brady retires after Ben wins his 4th-

Everyone that's had any interest in Fitzgerald as a QB candidate in the draft take a look..... "gruesome" leg injury caught on film. OUCH!

And what will Ben do if we play and coach like children against the pats again in a playoff game ?
If we win a SB he is back - a repeat of last year and I believe he may quit

I would be very surprised if Ben decides to retire after this season. This is not to say that he's incapable of creating more drama over his status, as he did at the end of last season; the drama is something we've come to expect. It's hard to know exactly what the Steelers think of the other QBs currently on the roster; if there is some stubborn faith in what's there, it's not faith I find convincing. Most likely they'll look to add another QB somewhere in the draft.

I still believe Dobbs can be a good NFL QB. But not next year.

I know most of you diasagree with me, but I still think the Steelers should go after McCarron after this year. A.J. would be
a good replacement for Ben, and since the Bengals don't want him, maybe we could get him.

We won't have a top ten pick obviously.

That and he's a head case. The intelligent thing to do would be make a play for Andrew Luck. He shouldn't command much with injury concerns and turnover problems.

He's got a similar skill set to Ben.

Bullshit, Baker is fucking great. You want to talk about "street" football yet Ben played like that all his career. I don't agree with bashing Manziel either. He played for Cleveland- Cleveland ruins qbs.

Baker is way more accurate than Manziel ever was, Josh Allen sucks balls.

My only knock on Mayfield is that he is not accurate in tight windows. When he has to make a thrown in tight coverage it is not very good. That may be correctable but he could suffer from being a system QB.

Teams will roll the dice on Darnold but the guy is a turnover machine. He would need a year to fix his mechanics and pound some sense into his head.

Rosen is the safest but still meh. He should not start right away and does not give you the "it" factor of Darnold.

Lamarr Jackson may be the best QB but I have not seen enough of his games to judge his accuracy.

I would still roll the dice on Fitzgerald. Cannon for an arm and can make the throws into tight coverage.

Mayfield will be a bust. Manziel part deux.
Allen has size, can run, big arm, he has the tools to develop, he has no help-playing with him.
Rudolph is the one you want in the first, followed by Darnold, and then Rosen from reports Rosen is a rich spoiled brat, who’s not liked in the locker room.
Jackson will be another RG3, runner/scrambler who won’t stay healthy in the NFL, take out a knee and he’ll have no game.
Pocket passers, over scramblers.

I don't think Mayfield will even be drafted high enough to be considered a bust. If he was a little more tan, maybe.
