Poll: Best backup QB situation in division

By Jamison Hensley

A big theme this week on the division blogs has been the state of the backup quarterback position for each team.

Now, it's your turn to weigh in on the subject. Which AFC North team has the best insurance policy when it comes to quarterbacks?

BENGALS: Bruce Gradkowski. He has a less-than-stellar 6-14 record while starting for three teams. But Gradkowski did lead the Bengals to a come-from-behind win over the Browns in last season's opener after replacing an injured Andy Dalton.

BROWNS: Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace. McCoy went 4-9 last season as the starter and finished as the NFL's 25th-ranked passer. Wallace has a 1-8 record as a starter the past three seasons.

RAVENS: Tyrod Taylor and Curtis Painter. Taylor has completed one pass in three brief appearances. Painter played last season under new Ravens quarterbacks coach Jim Caldwell in Indianapolis, where he was benched after failing to win in eight starts.

STEELERS: Byron Leftwich and Charlie Batch. Leftwich has started 49 games (24-25 record) and passed for 10,260 yards and 58 touchdowns. Batch is 5-2 as a spot starter since joining the Steelers in 2003.
