Thread: I would keep Batch, at least till Ben comes back

    I would keep Batch, at least till Ben comes back

    He might be the best QB on the bench now!

    Classic line by Aikman tonight: "Where's Bubby Brister?"


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    He might be the second best QB on the team. He still throws a nice ball. His only problem is he is fragile as glass. Does not take much to break Charlie.

    Agreed. He should start week 1. He has more exp. than Lefty if we're going on experience.

    Yeah... we know Batch has moments of greatness but his durability is a concern. Tonight I watched Dixon struggle and Lefty look uninterested..

    He's a real good teammate too, he threw that pic just to keep Lefty and Dix from feeling bad.

    Not sure, only the coaches will know, but that may have been a bad route by the WR. In which case, not Batch's fault if it was.

    WR definitely missed the hot read.

    I always chuckle at the fragile comments. Weird injuries happen all the time. Batch got pounded pretty good a few times tonight and bounced right up.

    Arizona has Matt Leinart, Derek Anderson, and rookie John Skelton (they got they got with the Santonio pick that we gave them for BMac and their 6th round pick that they used on Antonio Brown). Who would they get rid of for a 35 year old Batch who has never thrown to any of these Cardinal receivers before.

    We can cut Batch, and he should still be available in the case of catastrophic injury to Byron or Dennis during the first 4 games.

    I was being serious.

    Leinart has sucked so much this pre-season, he's been benched for Anderson.

    If you are benched for Derek Anderson- who couldn't beat out Brady Quinn - you suck.

    There are some rumblings coming from AZ that Leinart may be in jeopardy of being cut.
