Default Ask Batch why we went 8-8 ?????

I am pretty sure the answer would be: coz I didnt play more than 1 FULL game! :-)

I don't believe Charlie would think that - or even say that, brind. He's a humble kind of guy and the consummate professional. Besides - the problems the Steelers encountered this season did not just originate from the QB position - they all played a role in that 8-8 season. With the OL problems we had for that stretch of games, I don't think Charlie would have made any major difference, quite frankly.

If Batch played the Jax & Oakland games I think they would have won both and gone 10-6 to make the playoffs, but hindsight is 20-20. With the Cowher era coming to an end I am remembering all the good times and looking forward to discussing what lies ahead rather than continuing my vents on all that went wrong since last February.

Making the playoffs would have been nice, but unlike last year this team simply did not need to get everyone healthy to make a wild card run back to the SB. There was a lot more than Ben's play that screwed up this past season

Dude, I love Charlie as much as the next guy, but you have not had one positive post yet. Batch isn't going to say some shit liek that.

I doubt Charlie would say it, but I still think the biggest mistake of the season was allowing Ben to start (not to mention stay in for the entire game) against Oakland when it was pretty obvious he was still suffering the effects of the concussion he got in Atlanta the week before.

Oh my God give it a ****ing rest already. Ben had a bad season get over it. Life goes on. You know what Ben is still only 24 years old and his best years are still ahead of him.

Really.

We finished strong. The final play of the season still makes me laugh.

Now let's figure out how to run on Baltimore next season.
