    Perfect example of a player earning it with his play. Very happy for the young man.

    Also very happy to see that Baron Batch is on the team.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I am very happy for Golden, but Batch? What's he done to impress? He went for 30 yards on 7 carries vs. all scrubs. And that was the best he had done all preseason. I just don't see what's so great with this guy. I don't think he's a legit NFL back.

    With Mendenhall not yet healthy, you have to have the extra RB, regardless of your opinion...

    Batch also played on special teams...

    Baron Batch is a very good special teams player...

    Batch is a spunky, heady player. Those types of players tend to make it based on their versatility. I would imagine Batch to be a very solid ST player as well as backin up at RB.

    He kinda reminds me of former Michigan RB Mike Hart. Hart was a smart player, who made it (don't know if he's still around) simply because he was dependable and smart. Batch is the same way. These guys are good for overall character of the team.

    Last I knew, Hart was in Indy's roster. Don't know if he still is, he is just too small.

    He last played for the Colts in 2010. He is now the RB coach for Eastern Michigan University.

    On 3rd downs, you need a RB who you can count on to block so Ben does not get killed back there. In the past, that guy was Mewelde Moore...now it's Batch. They could use Redman on 3rd downs, but I think they plan to use him on 1st and 2nd downs and don't want to overwork him. Redman is the starter, Dwyer is his back-up (relieving him every 3rd series or so like Redman used to do for Mendenhall), Batch is the 3rd down back, and Rainey is a scatback operating more out of the slot than in the backfield (and on special teams, obviously).

    I'm real high on this kid. I think he has the tools to make a terrific NFL safety.
