    Question Week #4 Starting QB IS.........

    ....... Charley ? Leftwich ?

    My $$$ is on Charley.

    After Charley kicks *** next week, who will start Week #5 ? Will Ben have enough rust knocked off to take the reins back from Charley ??

    This is a question I was ripped for a few weeks ago....

    Obviously Ben is our man... But if (and only if) he is rusty after coming back, I say start the hot hand, whomever that is...

    Ben has been out of touch with everything football and Steelers for a few weeks... It's not a comunal sacrifice to say that he might not be completely up to speed... If he is, then cool... If not, then go with the hot qb whoever it is.

    Ben will be our starter in the Browns game.He looked pretty good during the preseason.I'm sure he will be just fine.Besides,the Browns will be a warm up for him.

    In all likelyhood Ben Is the starter for the warm up with the Browns. He may get beat! Leftwich will pass up Charlie again on the depth chart and we can keep Charlie until he's fifty!

    Batch is the guy for next week, Ben after that. Not even any question about it. Who you cut after that is a good question. These things almost always work themselves out but all three are going to be getting healthy on the bench so who knows. Maybe someone will come down with a mysterious injury that won't heal and go on ir.

    Ben. No question.

    Letīs not get ahead of ourselves though. Need to get Batch and Byron through next week healthy. Anything can happen afterwards and we may need some depth.

    At the same time, how great is it having our franchise QB coming back with an at worst 3-1 record without even taking a hit yet? This little suspension may end up being the best thing that could have happened for our team.

    Ben is the starter in game 5 when he comes back. He may be rusty, but you can't knock the rust off unless you play. In fact, this sets up perfect for us. He'll have the bye week to get extra practice in when he comes back and his first game will be against Cleveland. This will all ease him back into it.

    Charlie starts next week..hands down. (Lefty be ready....O line will have to play great)
    Ben starts against the Browns.....but Tomlin better be ready with the hook if he plays poorly.
    I can't see the D letting the Browns beat us though, regardless of any lingering rust by Ben.

    Let's not start talking crazy talk, Ben will clearly be the starter against the Browns. He may be rusty but even if so he's still better than anyone else on the team at QB, and it's not even close. If he's rusty and you don't play him, won't he be even worse with that logic by waiting to play him later in the year? The Browns are the perfect team to get back into action against.

    And I love Batch, he had one of his best games ever as a pro (maybe his best ever considering the circumstances) BUT about half his yards came off two extremely lucky deep passes.

    .
    Plus, we have a bye week in between the Ravens and the Browns. Ben will be fine. He may uncork a few stinkers here and there but nothing to get work up about.

    Ben plays the whole game unless the brownies hurt him.

    Charlie Batch better be the starter for week #4. When Ben returns, he's definitely the starter. Who do the Steelers keep? It wouldn't suprise me if the Steelers put Dixon on I.R. and keep both Batch and Leftwich to back up Roethlisberger.

    No brainer! Batch has proven his leadership and poise over and over.

    1. Ben
    2. Charlie till he retires
    3. Whatever veteran we can get next year
    4. A 3rd or 4th round diamond in the rough next year
