    Chuck's clearly working with those Angels in the Endzone folks. Gotta stick with God's QB.

Yes, Hoyer doesnt know the Offense and has only been on the team for a week, but the guy is an NFL QB. He can adapt a lot easier then what some of you think. This isnt rocket science, its football and the last I looked it is still played, for the most part, the same way it was played in 1930. Hoyer was able to grasp the Pats offense, which is similar to Haley's, so he'll not have many misunderstandings, except for the names of the plays, in ours. Batch is finished and will be dropped after this season and in my opinion should be cut right now. Pick up another QB and get on with this season.

    If Batch starts against the Ravens we will lose by 2 td's or more. The Ravens play a lot better at home then they do on the road. We have to score at least 24 to win this game and Chuck isnt going to get us there. Not even CLOSE!
    It's all good.

    Yesterday, we were going up against a Harbaughian level of douchebaggery, and Tomlin stepped up to the plate by screwing over Coach Massengill at the post-game handshake.

    This coming weekend, we will face the douchetastic Phil Rivers. Charlie Batch is simply too nice of a guy to match that degree of douchiosity, so we must start Hoyer this week instead, since he spent 3 seasons studying at the douche altar of Brady and Belichick.

    Todd Haley was a douche too until he came to Pittsburgh. Coming to Pittsburgh absolved him from all his sins.
