Hold on guys first with most NFL Team the coaches don't neccessary get to make that call more and more owners are make decision and the poor coach is getting the blame. In this case I believe that this is a decision from the front office. Remeber Cowher is a former player and he is a great coach and wouldn't make a call like this. When the season is over and cowher retires he will reveal the truth.
We have blown a chance to repeat, because next season it will be a different team because we will lose alot of good player, because the owners don't want to pay.

Understand we need a big smash month running back and until we get that we are in trouble.

Also remember Ben was surrounded last year by great players who in turn made him look good. Without that he is an average quarterback at best.

Wow! This is just like being on Rf.net! Same kind of talk, just a different team.

Hang in there guys and gals... your season isn't over yet.

Cowher needs to do this:

Tell Ben he needs to take a week off and rest. He can tell the media that Ben's thumb hurts or something to avoid the controversy if he wants. Then, start Batch next week and play him until the real Batch is revealed. If Batch lays an egg, then put Ben back in. If Batch plays well, keep him in to send Ben a message that he needs to step up his game. I think we all know Ben is a better QB, but right now he isnt showing it. A little extra motivation might straighten him up. At this point, a QB controversy is of little concern to the prospect of not making the playoffs.

I agree- let Ben get some rest, let Batch do his stuff- see what happens
