Time to start the Brian Hoyer era in Pittsburgh?
 
The Charlie Batch experiment was a complete failure.

He hasn't even seem the playbook for more than a week. Batch will be in next week unfortunately.

I don't think Hoyer could have been any worse than Batch today. 3 Ints is about right for a rookie. But at least he may have been able to throw the deep ball.
What sucks is watching Kaepernick for the 49ers coming in and doing a great job. Just like a backup should. IDK why we don't have a backup like that. SMH

look at charlie's record in pittsburgh

the guy wins football games

today was an exception

i think it would be nice to see teams run polls so that our favorite players stay on our favorite teams

i'd be exstatic to see dennis dixon start some more games in the burgh. just like i wanted tee martin to get more snaps while in the black and gold

At this point I would consider starting Heath Miller. He has played the position before and knows the offense.

A coaching staff that allows Batch to start next week should be FIRED!!! Hoyer needs to be practicing and reading up on the Steeler playbook

give Hoyer the 1st team reps. Batch can come in for relief if needed. He was and is just terrible. A 38 year old man with a 68 year old arm.

I personally think Batch would have been fine if we had kept it short. We rolled the dice on Wallace a few times and got burned. It was a stupid mistake, but hopefully they won't make it again. One of those interceptions wasn't an INT, it was Wallace tossing the ball to the Browns.

I think we now see why Lefty started last week. Batch cannot make the throws. Don't get me wrong I don't think Lefty has much left either, but atleast he could keep D honest by getting it down field. Wallace was a non factor for a couple of reasons, 1 is he was too fast for Batch's week arm and the other is he doesn't give much effort and is not an all around receiver. Not worth the 10 mill franchise next year. At some point the coaches have to be to blame with not having a better back up, especially with Bens history of injuries last few years. And Larry Foote who I stuck up for last week when 2 guys were beefing it out over how bad he is was an empty uniform. Oh $hit my bad I thought this was the venting thread. Back to thread I don't know how much of the O he could learn but Batch against Ravens is a loss before we start.
