    Mendy's return probably makes Batch expendable. No real need for 5 RB's on a roster- Mendy, Dwyer, Redman, Rainey & Batch is overkill.

    Not sure what the FO plans on doing at QB if/when Ben & Lefty are fit again. depending on the timeframe involved on Lefty's return, might have thought IR was possible. Would have given them a real chance to look at Hoyer. That said, Hoyer might just be a roster body & the FO has confidence that Lefty is the long term back-up QB in Pittsburgh.

    Anyone else kinda excited to see Plax back??

    I've wanted to bring him back since last offseason and think he can help us in the redzone. He's the prodigal son. I'm excited to see him in Pittsburgh again.

    He seems like a different person than his first go round in Pittsburgh. It may sound out there, but he might be a guy that can come in and help Wally get his head on straight. Plax has gone through a lot and I think he can have a positive impact on our young WRs.

    Plus Ben loves him. I'm expecting some fun playground football come playoff time. Haley's gonna have fun dealing Ben and Plax and their secret plays that only they know.

    Not sure if Batch is practice squad eligible, but if he is and we add him to the P.S., then I'll probably keep it. If not, I may go back to the ol' Gladiator sig. I'll give it a few days...

    According to Steelers.com, both players were added to the practice squad...

    OG Ryan Lee and TE Jamie McCoy were released from the PS to make room for them.

    Guess I can get the Plax Bobble Head Doll out now that he is back as Steeler #80 again. Unfortunately, the bobble head is broken--and probably why it was given to me in the first place! That is not something I would surely buy.

    Wishing him success this week against the Browns.

    Batch tweeted this AM that he had signed with the Miami Sharks!
