Posted by zeke 23:17 on the other board. Tantalizing tidbit about trading Starks/Mahan or Essex. If it's Starks, do we get any of that money back?

**********************************************
Steelers place Batch on injured reserve
Saturday, August 30, 2008
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers have decided to place veteran quarterback Charlie Batch on the injured reserve list, ending his season and ensuring that Byron Leftwich will be the top backup to Ben Roethlisberger the remainder of the year.

Also, the team has decided to release wide receiver Willie Reid, a former third-round draft choice, and former Pro Bowl return specialist Eddie Drummond as part of the cuts that will be announced later today by Coach Mike Tomlin. The Steelers have to get to a mandatory 53 players by 6 p.m. today.

As part of the process, the team is considering a trade that would involve one of their veteran backup offensive linemen -- tackle Max Starks, center Sean Mahan and tackle Trai Essex.
Batch, 33, had surgery to repair a broken right collarbone after he was injured in the team's first preseason game Aug. 8 against the Philadelphia Eagles. His contact with the Steelers expires at the end of the season, but he will still be paid his $1.355 million salary this season, even on IR.

Yeah, but I agree with SASF Les. Even if Nutsack is Eddie, we shouldn't be piling on unless he starts acting like his other persona. I personally think that anyone should be welcome as long as they're not displaying signs of douchebaggery.

By the way, good to see that we're apparently going with Baker...Go Gators!

I was thinking the same thing when Meyer stuck Newton in the game on first and goal.
WTF??...at least let Tebow finish the drive out and give him another TD (potentially).

Looks like the Hawaii coaches didn't evaluate their QBs very well either. That Funaki kid looks like a much better player than the two guys in front of him and just hot the former Rainbows on the board to avoid complete humiliation :lol: .

I guess no one has heard anything more on the potential trade of one of our linemen. My money would be on Mahan if it happens. The guy is starter-capable at guard and I don't see us unloading a tackle with Marvel's injury history still looming and Colon's sucking still an issue.

Man, you're making me hungry!... Good thing I have a rack of ribs on the grill right now!

...Baker was the more logical choice, IMO.... But I'm also not a Reid fan....

Obviously I've been a Reid supporter. Just got the feeling this will be Mike Vrabel Part II.

Never really saw what Baker offered, but if the coaches like him they know more than me.

Hey,its all good,Fla.You have your opinion on this matter and I have mine.Personally,I could care less about "piling on" the troll.He has shown SEVERAL times in the past how he insults people.Besides,I honestly didn't say anything wrong in the matter,but whatever.Today is a new day........ :twisted:

BTW,it is very interesting to say the least that Baker made the squad.I've been a personal fan of his(the Gators not so much :lol: .)Hope he proves to be a hidden gem.
