Re: Reasons to be optimistic about C. Batch
With the schedule in front of you the next couple of weeks, there's no way you're gonna win with Batch. Cowher doesn't even trust him to throw the ball. If Batch is in you better hope Bettis, Staley and Parker all bring their A-Games.
Ben is so good because he doesn't make mistakes. He doesn't make any real spectacular plays, just gets his 200 yds a couple TDs and no picks each game and lets the playmakers and defense do their thing.
Batch in a showdown against Cincy for first place in the division is not going to look like Batch in preseason against a bunch of 3rd stringers
