Thats what great teams do, had maddox just done his job in the JAX game, I strongly feel Reed would have hit a FG in OT and we would have only lost once this year. Two plays have costs us games I think. One was randle el's pitch at the 10, which would have more then likely got us a TD with the momentum against NE and that fumble. However, its good right now that we have very capable back ups. This is probably the best depth I have ever seen our team have. I hope we can bring it all together, nice and healthy by the playoffs....

I disagree, I think Batch is ALOT better than Maddox. While Batch did fumble 2 snaps, at least he recovered them and didnt kick them around the field. He also only had 1 int. in the beginning of the game compared to Maddox's 3, and overall did what a backup is supposed to do; Win the game. Not a knock against Ben, but I'm saying I have more confidence in Batch than Maddox.

Should Batch get some security hired around his house?

well he did only throw 16 times, so that could be a reason he only had one int and the packers don't really have ball hawking dbs. i hope batch can manage us to another win on sunday.

Its not so much that Batch played terrible. He just wasn`t really good. Plus they knew he wouldn`t be that good, so they stacked against our run.

Although its only been a little over a year, we all miss Ben when he is not in. Its actually kinda funny. Ben wasnt supposed to play at all last year, and maybe battle for the job this season. Now we cant live without him. Get well soon

Batch hasn't played in 4 years. He did what he had to do. Although one fumble was his fault, the other wasn't; it was hiked to his ankle. He managed the game and got us out victorious. Great job.

I said it last week and I'll say it again.. Our secondary sucks!! Doesn't seem to make a difference who the qb is we just can't seem to cover the recievers and they can pass at will.. For some reason though the opposing teams give up on the pass and try and run which we will dominate everytime at (THANK GOD!!) Green Bay as well as the Ravens in the last 2 weeks are able to move the ball at will by throwing almost everytime and our corners are almost 5 yards away everytime. I don't know how many times we get them 3rd and long and they still convert on the pass. I'm not talking out of frustration nor in experince of our team. I've watched the Steelers for 28 years now and know this team inside and out. I love our defensive line and linebackers there probably the most solid in the league but the secondary just makes me cringe.. Alot probably has to do with the calls from Dick since he blitzes almost every play and leaves the secondary wide open for the recievers to run in. We again got to the quarterback like 2 or 3 times (1 making a huge play) but all the other blitzes were pretty much worthless and almost if not for crappy Favre passes would have put the Packers ahead.. I don't need another lecture from someone saying how he hates criticism after a game but I think were getting very lucky holding on in some of these games. Green Bay basically beat themselves and I just hope we can tighten the corners up on man to man coverage as I see alot of room given to the receivers.. A win is a win though and I couldn't be happier in the end and as for Batch.....Nice effort for 1st start in 4 years.. If he starts against Cleveland I think he'll settle down even more.. Get well Ben and Willie!!!!
