That is the fundamental problem. He WILL be put in obvious passing downs.

For the record, I've always been a Batch fan. With that being said, it's time to move on. He just can't make the throws anymore.
Wait and see. The Ravens will stack the line with 8 defenders and defend the short passes all game. When it's 3rd and long they will send the house at Charlie. They will basically bait Charlie to throw the ball downfield. Wouldn't you? He'll take a lot of hits, sacks and probably a few INTs. I honestly have a hunch that Batch could get injured. The Ravens defensive gameplan will be as simple as that. It could get ugly for the Steelers.
