The good thing about the Ravens is that they can be run on this year and Dwyer and Redman have been running well. I would feel better however if Batch were starting over Leftwich, but who knows maybe between the rust and the weather, that's why he looked shaky.Pittsburgh Sports Forum: Member Driven and no ads

I, too, would feel more comfortable with Batch starting than Broken Leftwrist. He seems faster in his decision process and could possibly keep that short/medium offence that's in this year going.'I want rustlers, cut throats, murderers, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ***-kickers, ****-kickers and Methodists.'

We're more of a timing, short/intermediate throw offense that relies on a rhythm. Leftwich's delivery is absurd, it actually gives the D a split second to close or move in on passes. He possesses the bigger arm, but that's not required in this offense.
In fact his delivery is identical to Nomo:
The injury timing is both good and bad. It's bad, obviously because we play the Ravens twice in the next couple weeks and now we're staring squarely at a wildcard and road playoff game at best instead of competing for the division and #2 seed. But it's good that it's so far from the playoffs that we should be able to have a healthy Ben for whatever run we need to make, compared to last year's gimp Ben.
