    Your exactly right. It takes 15 minutes for the guy to throw a pass with that throwing motion he has. I'd rather go with Batch.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Yeah, I would much rather have Graham Harrell (Rodgers' backup), Chase Daniel (Brees' backup), Tyrod Taylor (Flacco's backup), Brady Quinn (Cassell's backup), Colin Kaepernick (Smith's backup), David Carr (Eli's backup), Tim Tebow (Sanchez's backup), Brock Osweiler (Peyton's backup), Derek Anderson (Newton's backup), etc than a man with a 24-20 record as a starting QB for the Jags against the Ravens next week.

    The guy has experience and has won in the past. That is more than you can ask for in a backup QB in this league. OF COURSE there are holes in his game. That is why he is a backup.

    Vince Young? He must still be playing for the "Dream Team", right? ;-)

    That said, I hope we do not have to use either in the coming weeks.
    I'm not comparing his stats or even effectiveness, I just noticed last night that his passes are like trying to catch a 30-06 bullet.

    Lefty will be servicable with another week of practice. No one in the NFL can replace Ben, let alone some guy we pick up this week. We need to worry about establishing the run game vs the Rats! The rest will fall into place.

    I agree that he did seem a little hyped up when he came in. The guy definitely has a bullet.

    All I know is if the ravens can't beat this team without Ben, they've got some serious issues.

    I'm not optimistic at all that we can beat the rats without Ben.

    It obviously makes it much more difficult but we almost beat them with a backup when Ben was suspended and their defense is weaker now. With Ben, I would have said we were a 66%-33% favorite. Now, I would say 50-50 or maybe a slight Ratbird edge. Either way, this game can still be won.
