Default According to NFL.Com Ben is Out!!!!

Charlie is starting, I sure hope he looks better than he did against the Clowns. Also, week 17 will prove crucial, play Ben or not? Do you let him go into the playoffs rusty, the past has proven that isn't a good move!!!!

Default Steelers name Batch starter for Rams game

Steelers name Batch starter for Rams game

By Scott Brown
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Friday, December 23, 2011

The Steelers have named Charlie Batch their starting quarterback for tomorrow's game against the St. Louis Rams. Batch will start in place of Ben Roethlisberger, who is nursing a high-ankle sprain.

Roethlisberger started last Monday night in San Francisco and played the entire game. The Steelers will rest him to give his injured left ankle extra time to heal.

If Roethlisberger dresses tomorrow, he will likely be used only in the case of an emergency.

Scott Brown can be reached at sbrown@tribweb.com or 412-481-5432.

Couldn't agree more! I was just telling my parents this last night. Let him sit the next two games and get ready for the playoffs. Glad someone has the presence of mind to do it.

Batch will do just fine. I have confidence in him.

Charlies stint in the Browns game recently was a display of what a quarterback would look like if you picked him up off the streets, put him in a jersey and threw him out their. Charlie didn't prepare whatsoever, and I don't blame him for throwing poorly, and he really didn't do that. This is the guy who was STILL considered the best league backup just last year, and led us undefeated in Ben's absence.

Of course. Batch was money last year, and with the needed practice he'll do fine tomorrow. This guy was, and always has been considered the game's best backup quarterback. Sure, he's getting old. But Ben's in his 8th year and is turning 30 in March.
