If Big Ben goes down we need a rock-solid backup option. I think you know where we need to turn.

They were simply trying to win and based on Ben's track record of being able to play through and win while playing hurt I thought it was a good decision to start him. I will say though that after interception #2 they should of probably given Batch and/or Dixon a chance.

Your first post as a member is a complaint and suggestion. That kind of. Sucks.

The right decisions we're made, and the outcome is irrelevant in that.

Didn't we win 3 games out of 4 without Ben last year?

I do not dislike Batch but the guy has been Ben's backup for a longtime and always looks a little lost when he gets thrust into the game. Maybe he would have faired better versus the Niners since he took many snaps last week but he does not give me confidence when he is under center.

Dixon may not be polished or have a full grasp of the offense but at least he can outrun trouble if needs to. :coffee:

Batch will play our final 2 games, Ben will be saved for the playoffs

This is what I think we shoul do- but I wouldn't mind seeing more of Dixon either.

I believe that we should play Dixon and see if there is any value in the trade market for him! If he can't win against the Rams and Browns it shows he truly is worthless!!! :popcorn:

Yeah. Batch isnt getting any younger. Would rather see a more youthful backup in there getting some snaps.

Just messing around with LOLcatz and some Jay-Z lyrics. Of course Roethlisberger is the man! He's just nursing some serious injuries. He'll be good to go for the playoffs.

I think a hurting ben is better than batch unless you have a time machine...

Well, for a successful Batch you'd only need to go back a little over a year. Remember when Ben was suspended? I think Batch is ok. What you saw of him against the Browns wasn't what you'd see from him if he started this week. He didn't get any first team practice that week and had about 2 warm up throws before being rushed to take off layers of additional warmth.
