I am not sure why Batch has been with this team for the last 2-3 years when they only let him throw the ball in absolutely necessary passing situations.

Someone tell these back ups the point of that stupid cushion is so that they can make a proper form tackle and not give up YAC

Limited playlist for Batch on 1st and goal after blocked punt = ........FG. Never even sniffed the end zone. Again -- WHY IS BATCH ON THE TEAM??? There are plenty of stronger, more mobile, more versatile backups. He's a 37 year old journeyman. Montana retired at 38. Bradshaw at 35. Marino and Elway at 38. And these were guys that played at a high level.

And to to add insult to injury, the defense is on roller skates.

Indy TD.....sure as hell glad I didn't pay money to see this "game." Arians wins the first round, I am NOT impressed with the Steelers at all. Time to get rid of some players that obviously do not have it.

It's funny how people think this isn't just the slightest bit alarming, this is the 2nd and 3rd string but if players are injured in a game who do you think replaces the starters? Not the end of the world but this is pathetic

The exact same rationalization can be made for every other NFL team, so what's the point? Our depth is far worse than the Colts? (and Eagles?)

No one is panicking over the Steelers' ineptitude. These "preseason vanilla games" set the tone for the team in working on their gameplans (in this case, offensive futility and defense in "I'll wait 'til the season starts" mentality).

I expect a big roster shift this week. These guys are horrible.

Settle down, it's the pre-season. Why is Batch on this team? Because we win when he's in the game, and he's a VERY reliable backup. As far as i'm concerned, he went 3-5 for 16 yards today, and that's a pretty good day for a backup in the pre-season.
