    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    With this injury to Lefty with Batch/Lefty being a bit old and or fragile, do you guys think this is the last season we see them in Steeler uniforms ? I think they'll have at least one of them on the team through training camp next season with a couple of younger qb's also. With this, they'll let both Batch and Lefty go once the season starts and we will have a youth movement at backup.

    I'm not going to say that I'm relieved but I guess I am, I just can't take watching Lefty go back out there next week. He is almost painful to watch. I will be much more comfortable with Batch. Win, Lose, or Draw!

Say Charlie goes down and then we're left with Heath. We're then scrambling to sign ANYONE to play against Cleveland which is bad news bears all around.
    Play 'em til the wheels come off. Or the chassis breaks apart. Isn't that how it works?

    I'd hope Haley has the chance to pick a back-up who best fits his system. Make that plural ... back-ups.

    Either way this is on Tomlin. Anyone could plainly see he was hurt. He needed to come out of the game.

    Yeah.. especially later in the game... how COULDN'T you tell he was hurt?

    I would have taken him out regardless, injury or no injury because of his 1st half performance.

    I'd possibly keep Batch as a QB coach or mentor. Maybe not so much for Ben (or maybe a lil' for Ben) but a younger player as well.

    I agree that Tomlin should have taken Lefty out. At the end of the game he was struggling to even get the ball to the feet of the receivers.

    I say we bring Hines back. He can throw a good pass and can definitely take a hit.
