    Please God, make Ben/Charlie well!

    Wow, I don't remember Leftwich throwing such an uncatchable ball several years ago? He throws a bullet that allows the receiver zero time to adjust which means that if the pass isn't pinpoint accurate, it is impossible to catch.

    What is Charlie's status?

    Is Batch hurt? I figured they just didn't want to dress the extra QB. Where is Troy Smith?

    From http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/...d-half-661879/

    Inactive playersThe Steelers had the following players inactive: Charlie Batch, DeMarcus Van Dyke, Rashard Mendenhall, Troy Polamalu, Sylvester Stevenson, Marcus Gilbert and Antonio Brown.

    As a result Mike Adams started at right tackle (in place of Gilbert), Redman started at running back, Emmanuel Sanders started at wide receiver and Will Allen started at safety.

    The Chiefs inactive players were Brady Quinn, Steve Breaston, Tysyn Hartman, Cyrus Gray, Bryan Kehl, Bryan Mattison and Jerrell Powe.

    If Batch plays against the Ravens twice in three weeks he may shatter into a million pieces.

    As I said on another thread, we are being too tough on Lefty. The guy has not played in years, got no snaps with the first team this week, and played in miserable conditions. His numbers were comparable to Ben's and he had a huge third down throw to Cotch. Both he and Batch are very capable backups.

    That said, I hope we do not have to use either in the coming weeks.

    Nobody is being too tough on Lefty. He just isn't very good.

    I believe the guy has a winning record as a starting QB in the league. You are not going to get Brady as a backup in this league. An overwhelming majority of teams have as a backup A) an old guy with much worse career stats than Lefty or B) a young kid who may have a brighter future than Lefty but is going to be a turnover machine if thrown into a high stakes game like next week. No one wants to go into a game against the Ratbirds with a backup but I would take ours over most teams' any day. In a hypothetical battle of backups next week, would you prefer Lefty/Batch or Tyrod Taylor?
