The guys we have right now are liabilities, granted Charlie got no help, but he was bad. He never had a strong arm in the first place, and he is aging.
I hear what you're saying; I really do.
Batch had open receivers... and either threw the ball over their heads (Heath, twice), threw it in the dirt (Wallace, twice), or threw it behind the receiver (three times).
BUT, I think that the defense will keep it close, and the RBs will NOT fumble four times. Plus, now that Haley KNOWS that Batch has a weak arm, Haley will call more short routes & screens (as opposed to deep balls).
I see the Steelers squeaking out 3 more victories (at least).
