He definitely validated the faith the team put on him and made trading Dobbs an easy choice. He looked confident when Ben did not.

Damn, I wanted a win out of that. But itís a long season, so Iím not panicked yet.
As a Seattle fan of course I was not rooting for the Steelers, but after a while I was rooting for Rudolph. He was good. I think Pittsburgh fans should be encouraged by his play, as Ben gets older. Rudolph could be a really good QB, he showed a lot of poise and athleticism, even patience when having a defender bearing down at him unblocked. As a second year player thatís impressive.
