    Nowhere did I say the guy was Ben, Brady, or even Christian Ponder. However, he did play "well enough to win" 2 of the 3 games he started. Five fumbles beat us against Cleveland, not Batch's INTs.

    Too many people here are big babies. The most you can ask for from a backup QB is that he comes in and gives you a chance to win. The backup coming in and playing anywhere near the same level as the starter (what everyone here seems to expect) usually means A) Your starter sucks, or B) he is the starter in waiting anyway.

    When Charlie filled in for Ben, we were in a playoff position and when Ben returned we were still in a playoff position. Batch did everything a sane person could ever expect from a backup QB. DBR96A's comment notwithstanding, we were not "screwed" by Charlie.

    Ben makes it easy to blow his "injuries" out of proportion, he's a drama queen!

    Ross Tucker is a douche, Ben isn't done (yet)...

    Ross tucker on Sirius was saying he thought Ben was done? Whatever, I don't take much credibility from ex browns.

    I agree, but whole heartly believe a hurt Ben was still our best option over a 100% Batch the last month of the season...

    I agree and would say the same about Ben with 80 percent of the backups in this league.

    He only played in two games. Leftwich started against the Ravens.

    When you throw 3 picks in a game? You played like ****.

    Unless you are Ben, then it was LeBeau's fault.

    As has been covered over and over again by nearly every poster, you are an idiot.

    Well you must remember Charlie was taken off the practice squad to play vs the browns. He wasn't football ready.
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    Ben doesn't play defense. He has nothing to do with our 4th quarter prevent defense that has sucked since 2007.

    Don't blame me because you don't follow the team.

    Like I said, when another QB gives up 3 INTS, he "played like ****."

    When Ben throws 3 INTs, you blame Lebeau (or Tomlin, or Colbert, or Rooney, etc.). You said it more clearly than I ever could.
