Default Trade Charlie Batch!!!!!

im a huge charlie batch fan and would be happy to see him finish out his career like b. johnson, t. green or r. gannon. but i realize his value to the steelers. with todays shaub to texans trade, i see that value could be prettty high.

if the texans offered 2 2nd rounders for batch, what would you say?

I would deal batch in an instant if we got offered one second rounder for him.

First because i dont plan on using him this year.

Second- He is getting old i rather start grooming a younger player to be are back up for the next 7 years witch i thought is what they were doing with brain st pierre/Omar jacobs

I am seriously shocked that 2 people actually would rather have Charlie Batch than Peyton of Tom Brady.. even to just use them to trade for someone amazing.. .but really!

With injury concerns of our own starter and his quality backup and able to win when he comes in. No it is not worth it to trade.

I admittedly have never been a huge fan of Batch's, but he is a reliable backup and with Ben showing little shades of being prone to injury, it's good to have a solid guy behind your number one guy. I say no way.

I see where you are coming from

But if you are getting a second round pick for him i cant see any way we would turn that down. His stock right now is at a peak and we should cash in on it now before he isnt worth anything.

That's a tough one Tone,...as HTG stated,....it would put us in a precarious position in regards to our very own back-up situation. (Brian St Pierre is ridiculous,....and i don't mean that in a good way) LOL
But even with that being said,.....two second rounders would be an exceptional deal. And one that i MIGHT just take were i G.M. And then pick up someone like John Beck in the Mid to late rounds ?

....Anyway, I thought charlie played well last year. I doubt we're gonna get a crapload for him. however, i was a little surprised we cut jacobs. he looked ok, + 41/4 touchdown interceptions ratio in college. did he have gastrointestinal problems or something?

sorry to go a wee bit off topic but since everyone is talking about possible trades with Faneca and Batch it's got me wondering if there are deadlines or time frames for trading in football? I know in baseball they can only trade during certain times in the year, football have no clue.....
