Preseason Expectations: Quarterback

Five games. 18 practices. That’s the allotted time the 2015 Pittsburgh Steelers will have to prove themselves before playing in a meaningful game. The preseason is unique in the sense that it’s the only time when the scoreboard doesn’t matter. 0-5, 5-0, it really isn’t going to matter. It’s the…

Of course, the one position that may need better competition the most is at quarterback. It goes without saying that Ben Roethlisberger is locked in as the starter for years to come.

Bruce Gradkowski’s Career Arc Provides Comfort, Trust With Steelers

It’s a player Pittsburgh Steelers fans hope they never have to see. Yet it’s one the team unquestionably has put substantial trust in. A downright weird way to describe a player but for backup quarterback Bruce Gradkowski, it’s fitting. His uniform number is high than Pittsburgh passing attempts, five to…

Poor Quarterback Competition Leaving Door Ajar For Slash Role

This may not be cause for much surprise, but it certainly doesn’t appear as though the Pittsburgh Steelers currently have much of a quarterback battle on their hands. I’m not speaking of Ben Roethlisberger, of course, who is coming off a career year; that goes without saying that his position…
