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.Please. Batch played well enough to win 2 of 3 games that he subbed for Ben. Five fumbles cost us the Cleveland game, not Charlie. We were not "screwed" last year because of Charlie.
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.
