Batch it is and they HAVE TO sign a backup now. No question. Who will it be??? I vote for Doug Flutie or Vinny Testeverde.

I always thought Batch was the better quarterback. What was Tomlin thinking keeping Leftwich in when he was in obvious pain!

Yep. Broken ribs = lefty will not be available for at least a couple weeks, and we aren't going into a game with only 1 quarterback.

maybe they're gonna give mcnabb a call afterall
