    The Steelers third string QB, Duck Hodges, will start against the Cardinals this Sunday. I am getting flashbacks to a few years ago when Roethlisberger was on IR, and back up QB, Michael Vick, got hurt during the game against the Cards. They brought in their third string QB and STILL beat the Cardninals!!!

    Who was that QB? I can't remember.

    or just think about this year when Carolinas back up shredded us apart. Ever QB has looked elite vs us really. Qbs and TEs.

    This game is on Kyler. He needs to show he is special and get a win vs a 3rd string QB. No excuses on this one.

    I don’t understand this.

    It’s not 1v1 out there. What about the 11 players Hodges will be actually going against out there?

    You telling me that if Kyler put up a statline of 4:0 TDs/INTs with 386 yards against a great defense with two potential DPOY candidates while Hodges puts up 2:1 against this porous defense with 288 yards, but still wins, you hold that against Kyler?


    Like what?

    if he played against the 3rd string QB on the field that would make sense. This game is on the defense to show they can stop a 3rd string QB.

    Thank you, cardcrazy! Couldn't remember Landry Jones' name. And this loss against the Steelers was in 2015 when the Cardinals were actually a good team. Let's see how the Cardinals respond this Sunday after getting embarassed by the Rams. As BigRed pointed out, we don't play well against back up QBs like the game against the Panthers.

    The best unit in this game is Pittsburgh's defense. The worst unit in the game is AZ's Defense.

    the game will be won by the team who can move the ball the best and control the clock the best.

    With that being said:
    They have won 7 games and are in the AFC playoffs right now.
    They have a Coach of the Year candidate.
    They are 7-2 in their last 9 games. All with a Drew Stanton Level QB starting.
    They have been without Conner or JuJu in last two or three.
    They barely lost to Baltimore in OT with a Drew Stanton level QB.
    They won last week with an undrafted rookie QB from Samford college and a 3rd string Rookie 4th round RB.


    We are 3-6 in our last 9 and have lost 5 straight.
    We have the worst defense in the league and the worst secondary of maybe the past decade in AZ.
    We will also be a road team in our own stadium this weekend.

    If we win...... This would be a shocker IMO.

    We know the defense can’t stop any QB. Kliff, K1 and the offense need to step up and put up 40+ if we want to win. The online and running backs need to step up and help us win the TOP battle. If we give any offense the ball, they’re going to score. That’s a given. Our defense this year is as pathetic as our offense was last year.

    Same argument I had before. Plays well and loses, he needs to win, he's our QBoF.
    Plays average and wins, he needs to play good and win.

    Can't win for losing.

    It was debated on ESPN on Monday. He really has done a good job this year with everything that has gone on.

    Ben & now Mason
    AB
    Lev Bell
    Minkah trade
    Conner injuries.
    JuJu concussed
    Currently the 6th seed.

    I bet he's top 3 or 4 right now.

    There’s no excuses to have another sub-200 yard game or not throwing a TD. You can’t expect him to win a game by himself but FFS this is the era of inflated passing stats.
