    Brian Hoyer never gave Mary's brother Warren piggyback rides, though!

    Steelers set to sign Plaxico, Brian Hoyer
    Posted by Darin Gantt on November 20, 2012, 12:56 PM EST

    The Steelers wore the 1934 throwbacks Sunday night, but they might need to break out their 2003 unis this week.

    With Charlie Batch scheduled to start because of injuries to Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich, the Steelers are apparently going to sign Plaxico Burress to go with him.

    ESPN’s Adam Schefter said the Steelers were expected to sign Burress after watching him work out earlier today.

    Per multiple reports, they’re also signing quarterback Brian Hoyer, to give them another healthy arm on the roster.

    If it makes you feel better, from a distance he almost looks like Charlie Batch's illegitimate love child.

    And based on how old Charlie Batch is, that is not necessarily out of the realm of possibility.

    He looks like an overpaid farm-hand.

    In response to his pleas, an officer said: "You think we've never arrested somebody that's made national media? ... We deal with the Bengals all the time."

    I was just talking about Burress in another thread, the one about Wallace dropping the pass. Burress is a great red zone target. I just have to wonder if this means that AB is hurt worse than expected? Great move though.
