I agree. He's a solid #2 in my opinion. When called on this past season I thought he played as a #2 QB should have played while being a #3. This past season, any game he started, we won and any game he had to come off the bench during, we won. How anybody can complain, I have no idea. Not only am I content with Homestead Charlie, I'm happy to have him as a #2.

Batch is a solid backup. Who would you rather have Tommy Turnover? Steelers did draft Omar Jacobs and so they do have a young QB in the folds to groom as a backup to Big Ben. Hopefully our backup QB's never see the field until the last game of the year against the Bengals since we will have the AFC North locked up going into that game.

exactly tony.

The Saints dont even wanna give Deuce up. I dont know if you realize this Big D, but Reggie Bush was going to have to share carries if he went to Houston, too. Reggie Bush shared carries in college with White, hes not a 25 carry/game back, but one who gets 15 and makes use of them. The thing is about Reggie Bush is that he can line up in the slot and play wideout, almost as good as anyone in the draft. (cept santonio of course ;) )

Deuce Mcallister has had plenty of injuries in the past, hes very injury prone. Why not have the best 1-2 punch in the league with them, and possibly create one of the best offenses in the league?

The Steelers WILL NOT get a big name back, especially with our current cap situation. Deuce would be a huge hit, and it would never happen...ever...you can mark my word...the steelers will never get Deuce Mcallister

And dont say Charlie Batch sucks, because if you look around the league, hes a pretty good backup compared to what other teams have right now.

Deuce Mcallister is just as injury prone as our Duce Staley. I like Deuce but he will never be a Pittsburgh Steeler. We don't need him anyway.

McAllister is just as injury prone as Staley,and is at a higher price.I'll keep Staley at the smaller price tag.

Also,Bush isn't big enough to be a 25-30+ carry a game guy.He'll get 10-15 carries plus kick/punt returns and some catches out of the slot/backfield.

Also,Batch doesn't suck.He was 2-0 for us in starts last year while Turnover Tommy was 0-2.Yeah,he didn't have a great Green Bay game...but that was the first time he was asked to start a regular season game in forever.In his second game he did much better,and in the Cleveland blowout he looked damn good.I'll take Batch over any backup in the league.

yeah I agree with BlackNGold, Willie ran for 1200 yards in the only year hes ever started. Not only that, but he averaged 4.7 YPC which is great. People dont give enough props to him, just because he isnt a Steeler type runningback.

Consistancy cant be proven when youve only played one year

I'd also love it if this was my girlfriend...there's actually LESS of a chance of Deuce sporting the Black & Gold.
