I wonder if Leftwich is asking for too much money?

How many one year deals does Batch have left?

Collecting paychecks while sitting around on I.R. is a tough gig. Not everyone could do it as well as Lefty. ;)

I thought Leftwich was going to Indy so he could tutor Andrew Luck on how to become a mediocre NFL QB like himself.

Duce seemed to be pretty good at it. ;)

I dont get it. Is this the best back up QB the Steelers can get? Charlie Batch is horrible. Flat out. There are plenty of better options out there. Why do they keep going to him?

Wonder if we will draft a mid to late room black QB to take Dixon's spot or if Jerrod Johnson or Troy Smith fill the void.

While he may not be as bad as you say, I am equally dumbfounded as to why we keep signing this china doll to back-up Ben. He is average at best, when he is healthy, which is hardly ever. Remember when he broke a body part (I can't remember which) when he played about four downs... I think it was vs. KC or something. I think every play was a handoff too!

Dan Rooney loves him, he's from Pittsburgh, and he's broke.

The only reasons he's still here.

Plus he is like having another QB Coach on the team to talk to Ben.

I do get the sense there is some degree of charity in keeping him around because he is such a good person in the community.

Just because they have him now doesn't mean he leaves camp on the Final 53

The thing that is slightly puzzling is the fact that we are going to be going to a new offense - so the old adage that "he knows the playbook" doesn't necessarily hold true anymore. And it might be harder to teach that old dog new tricks. Maybe they are thinking he can pick things up fast and can be a liason to Ben (if needed).....

Wonder if they can install an I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up device in Charlie's new throwback.
