Backs up Ben ? Do you keep Batch who started the last 3 games or do you make Leftwich who was groomed to start the season your #2 guy ?

If I had to make the decision ,I believe I go with Lefty.

2. Lefty
3. Dixon
4. ?? or none

Batch to a coaching position.

I am not certain one option is better than the other. Charlie proved he can play yet, Lefty can too but neither to Ben's standard so, I guess I would let the circumstance dictate who would play. Going into a game with a sack happy D I would make Batch the backup (#2) and Lefty #3. If the opponents D is better at pass coverage then Lefty before Batch. If we are facing one of the top 5 or 6 Ds in the league...lets just hope Ben stays healthy.

For the time being it'll most likely be Batch IMO, mainly because he's healthy and has played this year more than Lefty has. Although in the long term, it'll be Lefty backing up Ben and Batch will most likely be released after the season is over.

Hopefully, the long term strategy of the Steelers includes bringing in some better prospects via draft, free agency or trade. The Dixon-Batch-Leftwich trio of back-ups fills me with dread if Pittsburgh's lead slinger ever goes down long term. The defense can't be left to consistently do the heavy lifting without some offensive production at the QB position.

Of course, with the impending lock-out next year, it may be a moot point.

I misread it, thought he meant next year. Obviously now, it is Batch as he is our only healthy option.

Most of you agree with me on Batch. He got us to 3-1 not 0-4.

Defense got us to 3-1 Batch is only 1-1.

I vote Lefty if he is at all healthy.

I'll bet the last couple of days Colt McCoy has been wishing it was him.

leftwich if hes ready to go and its not even close. charlie did ok even though he lucked out big time in TB with his bombs and failed to get the same luck with baltimore but he really showed that he cant make all the throws, or even all the reads in the baltimore game. he limits the offense SO much, leftwich does not

I would think it would be Batch, but hopefully it won't matter.

I think they're keeping Leftwich as the long-term backup for Ben. He's not gonna land a starting role in the NFL and he says he wants to finish is career in Pitt. I could see Batch maybe filling in this year, but not in the future.
