Agree. Nattering nabobs of negativism is much closer to the mark. :D
Are you referring to the elite corps of impudent snobs.
Certainly not, for while not a member of the press, I am an impudent snob.

When asked about Ben Roethlisberger's (elbow) recovery, Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said, "All signs are good at this point.

Big Ben's recovery appears to be on track, but the team will have a much clearer idea of his health after his "significant" checkup on February 21. The medical staff should know how realistic a full recovery is and when it's realistic to have their franchise QB back on the field. Pittsburgh wants to run it back with Big Ben as the starter for at least one more year, but they remain a candidate to take a Day 2 quarterback in April's draft as long as Big Ben's health is up in the air. Roethlisberger will be entering his age-38 season this September.

If they take a day 2 QB my head is going to explode. First off, the QBs available Day 2 are so unlikely to represent a significant upgrade in 2020 for even the low bar that is the Steelers backup QB situation. Secondly, with only 6 picks and holes/weaknesses... it's just another pick taken away from Ben's treasure chest in the event Ben is 100%.

Maybe we will miss out on another George Kittle while Tombert sprints to the podium to select another Josh Dobbs that they’ll trade so they can keep hot garbage like Ducky Hodges.
