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

    ​Congrats to Robert Golden. He earned it.



    Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.

    Golden also played some corner in college, so he can be the de facto 5th corner as well, since we only kept 4 CB's on the final 53. The more that you can do...Tomlin loves that flexibility. I think Golden could be the primary backup in Denver to both Troy and Mundy (since Clark will obviously not be in the lineup) because I'd say that Golden is a better option on defense than Will Allen already (Allen is pretty much a special teams only player at this point...actually surprised they kept Allen this year over Cromartie-Smith...probably because DCS still had another year of PS eligibility left). In nickel defense in Denver, we should see Ike, Keenan, Cortez, Troy, and Mundy as our 5 DB's...it will be interesting to see if they use Golden or Curtis Brown as the 6th DB when we go into our dime defense.

    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.

    yep, we should cut all our RB's except dwyer.

    he can do it all every game.

    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.
