Get well soon, Ben. Kick some ass Charlie, I'm behind you all the way. Duce, you better pro-duce this Sunday or all my faith in you will be gone for good. At least Fast Willie should have an amazing day.

I have ZERO confidence in Batch but .........maybe he will surprise us. Every time his name is mentioned all I see is him lying on the field in Detriot, LOL he was horizontal most of the time LOL. But let's give the guy a chance he did pretty well during training camp.

I know how you feel not seeing Ben play in person, same thing happened to me on the 16th with the Maddox fiasco.

Disappointing news. I do think Ben picked a pretty good time to miss though. Hopefully he will be back soon and ready to go. Lead us to some wins Charlie!!!

Remember, Charlie never had too good of a line to work behind in his years there, and no receivers to throw to but Edwards. He'll be allright.

If this was going to happen, now is the best time.. we have 2 games coming up against teams that we can beat without Ben if we play the way we are capable of. Run the ball, play great defense, and let charlie do his thing. Batch can do it, and liek suit said, he cant be any worse than Tommy played!

We'll be ok!!

I played against Charlie Batch in high school. He went to Steel Valley and was the backup. He started in the championship game at 3 rivers stadium and he whooped our asses. Hopefully he remembers that and takes that memory to his pro level game these next two weeks.

Ah well, this would be the time to get this taken care of.
Sorry dude. I guess I lucked out by seeing him play on Halloween. He didn't looked hurt at all during the game, from what I could see.

At least the next 3 games are with weak teams. If Steelers play Steelers ball, they will be strong and ready for when Big Ben returns.
