I have no doubt that Charlie Batch can lead the team, and he has shown this on many occasions, but there is the possibility of Batch getting hurt. Sure, we can bring someone with a short-term contract, but is that good for the team?

Man you make too much sense. When I questioned the front office for cutting Jacobs some folks in here laughed it up and had good time ridiculing my thread. I think one of the younger mods even wanted to cut it because he didn't agree with my opinion of looking out for the Steelers future. Now if Ben can't come back I guess Batch is our future?!? This was my point back then and now we have to think about it. Sure we can use Ward in a pinch and move Jacobs on to the active roster, but Jacobs hasn't worked closely with Ben and isn't familiar with this offense.

What about that Brian St. Pierre guy did the Steelers not sign him as a QB? Of course I could be wrong but..I thought they did or was he released so they could sign someone else? And on ESPN.com if you type in Ben Roethlisberger it comes up with his page and it says "October 23 News: Roethlisberger apparently avoided a severe concussion on Sunday and should play against the Raiders in Week 8".

Maybe he can throw a few passes to himself! That would be cool considering I have him on my Fantasy team! DOUBLE SCORE

BSP kicks some serious ass on my PS2.

Since we're talking about cheap & affordable backups..where's Kordell these days? I mean if they brought back Chad Brown, and were always looking to bring back Neil O'Donnell...where's slash?

Batch is a great reliable back-up, but we do need to start thinking about keeping another QB!
