Default Batch speaks - sort of - about Steelers

Batch speaks - sort of - about Steelers

I caught up with Charlie Batch briefly following the Steelers' charity basketball game at Washington & Jefferson College - which benefitted the Special Olympics.

Batch, who's usually very friendly and insightful with the media, was understandably evasive in his answers regarding the current state of the Steelers and what has transpired with the team in the past month.

Here's what he told me:

Q: Charlie, I saw two Steelers quarterbacks out there tonight (Dennis Dixon was the other) are we going to see any more quarterbacks at these kind of events?

"We just play the games. This is like the 50th game we've played. I don't know who's going to play."

Q: With everything that's happened, obviously, you've always been a guy who's done all the right things, but did the Steelers' image take a hit?

"You all can answer that, it's really not for me to answer."

Q: But has the response you've gotten at events like this remained positive?

"They're happy to see us."

Q: There's a good chance you or Dennis could end up starting the season as the starting quarterback. Have you given that any thought?

"I haven't given any thought to that. We haven't even started our practices yet. It's too early to start worrying about next season. I don't know at this point what's going to happen. I keep on reading what you write."

Q: Is it tough seeing teammates go through stuff like this?


Q: And former teammates.

"Really, I'm not going to answer anything about that. This really isn't the right time for that."

Batch did an excellent job of just moving past the ignorant questions. They were looking to stir the pot and Batch didn't go for it.

Should Batch be playing basketball? He seems pretty fragile to me.

Fragile? Hah.

No lie: My buddy last week has a history of shoulder dislocations. He was bored and went to play 4 squares with our buddies. Wouldn't you know it he popped his shoulder.. PLAYING FOUR SQUARES! Now THAT'S fragile.. just sayin.
