    Confidence in Charlie Batch?

    Do we want to go into the playoffs with Batch as the back up the only back up? I understand that he hasnt seen much of the field, but he looked lost. Hell he looked as if he didnt want to even be there. Would you consider McNabb just for the remainder of this season? Depending on the cost, I would!

    Hard knock life when you have one backup with a broken arm and the other has been inactive for the past 2 months.

    It would be like poking the Eagles in the eye if McNabb won a ring with the Steelers.

    i gotta admit, that thought crossed my mind when the vikings released him. i doubt we could afford him, but it wouldn't be the worst idea to think about him as an insurance policy.

    When Batch came into the game the offense was completely deflated. In his defense, he came in cold, literally and figuratively, and your starting QB just went down with a horrible ankle/leg injury. You don't know as players how bad it is and you're in the middle of a dogfight.

    Batch comes in and fortunately it was close to halftime so the offense was basically just trying to get through the shock of what happened and get to the locker room to regroup and figure out the gameplan. You're game plan doesn't necessarily change when Batch comes in although you're probably going to run the ball more than you might have planned.

    If Ben doesn't come back, the Steelers may have still won but I'm not totally convinced as such. You saw how the offense rallied around Ben when he came back with running the ball. You're excited, adrenaline is pumping, you're in a zone trying to rally to the cause. You'd like to think they could do the same thing when Charlie comes in but would it be as successful?

    How about dressing dixon? I think the only reason Batch is on the team is because Leftwich went down. I love Charlie, but he seemed very rusty.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    I don't think he has the arm strength to make many plays anymore. That pass out to Heath that went incomplete took way too long to get out there.
