Let's assume for a moment that all three are healthy, which I believe is the case.  Who do you start?  Batch is probably the "healthiest", I am pretty sure that is one of the signs for the imminent Apocalypse, right after the raining of bugs. So do you start him?  I wonder if the play calling was as a result of wanting to protect Batch or maybe his skills have fallen way off.  Of the course the main reason is BA is a dumbfuck.  I honestly believe that Lefty is within one hit of going out again and he will get hit again.  What about Dixon's ego if we don't put him back in?  It was neck and neck during the pre-season and then we have Dixon playing 1.5 games.  You know Lefty is going to be rusty for awhile, before he gets hurt and then you are back to Dixon again.  :huh: :huh:

So here is my take...the defense should carry us through the next two games, at worst we lose one of them.  I say give Dixon the experience.  Neither of the other two will be here next year, one will not be here in three weeks.  We need to have a good second guy and I think Dixon can be it but needs some time.

Who are you going to start?

It's Charlie.  DD is absolutely out.
Lefty isn't worth the risk.

Charlie's throws on Sunday were good throws....when BA let him throw.
We dropped more passes Sunday than we do most seasons! Seriously.  Heat dropped 2 that hit him right in the numbers.
So....maybe it was timing, starters not having worked much with Charlie. Maybe BA figures out that the D cannot win the game alone - at least not all the time.

But, for now, in Charlie we trust.

I'm less worried about who starts the next game than who finishes it.  I like Batch, but his track record for injury makes me very nervous. There is no way that we should go into this game without another QB -- and by that, I mean, a healthy QB.

It's ok if we have Leftwich as the 2nd QB, but if he goes in and his knee doesn't hold up, we need to have a better plan than Randle-el or Ward going under center.

Don't know if I like the idea of singing Bill Stull. Is Tommy Maddox available? Or better yet, can we throw some dough at Kurt Warner? Be a nice part-time gig for a retiree, no?

Garcia is much better than Gary Coleman IMHO, even if he's gay and has a hot wife for a beard....

I disagree.

DD = torn meniscus, he's not a factor until BBR comes back and he can return to the backup rotation.

BFL = now at the minimum time expected out, can't believe he's anything more than 75%.

So, it's CB, two gimps, a couple of college QB/NFL WRs.

We're screwed.

You just know BA will go to his defensive stance playcalling (rush-rush-pass-punt) and we'll drop a game we should easily win.

We start the season with 4 QBs and by game 2, we have 1.  Maybe 1.5.

Of the course the main reason is BA is a dumbfuck. 

I agree wholeheartedly that BA is that. However, I'm somewhat glad that he called the game the way he did the other day. It was conservative as hell, no doubt, but the Steelers D was virtually unstoppable. I'm sure that if we'd lost, I'd be singing a different tune. But, had we lost because he decided to let a rusty-ass Batch or rookie-like Dixon sling it around against a stout D that was playing pretty well in its own right, I'd be even more pissed.
