Steelers QB Batch, not Roethlisberger, to face Rams

The Pittsburgh Steelers will start Charlie Batch at quarterback for Saturday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Ben Roethlisberger was expected to be given at least one week of rest as he recovers from an ankle injury. The 29-year-old Roethlisberger has thrown for 3,856 yards with 21 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 14 games. Batch, 37, has thrown two incompletions this...

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger could sit vs. St. Louis Rams

After a very poor performance against the San Francisco 49ers Monday night, it’s becoming more and more of a reality that Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger could sit this Saturday against the St. Louis Rams. NFL Network contributor Jason La Canfora on Twitter this morning confirms this. Jason LaCanfora reports, “Steelers officials would be shocked if Ben...

Ben Roethlisberger SHOULD Sit At Least Week 16 If Not Both

In Charlie Batch we must trust. Courtesy Ben, Ben, Ben.  This might be the most attention you’ve received during the actual course of the football season and not just the offseason.  For those keeping up on Ben and his ankle and have been thinking about it, you may have already read Kimmy’s post about her thoughts on the matter.  She’s on the fence.  I, on...

Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger active vs. 49ers

Power Outage Delays "Monday Night Football"

As Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was announced as being active against the San Francisco 49ers, the stadium had different ideas. The start of Monday Night Football at Candlestick Park in San Francisco was delayed Monday when a transformer exploded just outside the stadium. The start of the game was delayed indefinitely and ESPN showed aerial footage of fans...

Steelers let chance to control AFC slip away

The lights weren't the only thing that went out in San Francisco. The Pittsburgh Steelers saw their opportunity to take control of the AFC disappear in a 20-3 loss to the 49ers. Injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger passed for 330 yards but also threw three interceptions, and the Steelers were held without a touchdown for the first time in over two years. Instead of moving...

Mike Tomlin never considered benching Ben Roethlisberger

The most bizarre thing about Monday night's Steelers vs. 49ers game (okay, the second-most bizarre thing) was that gimped-up quarterback Ben Roethlisberger played all sixty minutes. On an injured ankle, when the Steelers' line couldn't protect him, and with the game decided, there was Large Benjamin, still under center, still getting pounded. Even more strange? Head coach...

Batch Will Start Tomorrow

Looks like the Steelers heard my pleas. Ben Roethlisberger will not play on Saturday, and Charlie Batch will be under center against the St. Louis Rams. The Steelers have likely accepted the fate of a fifth seed, content to play the AFC West champion on wildcard weekend. In the meantime, Ben Roethlisberger can work on getting healthy. By not working at all.

Thursday Night Injury Report: Rams at Steelers

The Steelers Injury list is relatively short this week.  They are heading into week 16 pretty healthy.  Minus Ben Roethlisberger’s status up in the air this team is pretty well set for who is in and out.  LaMarr Woodley returned to practice.  I will have to tell April to calm down.  Woodley could not practice a day after a game.  Rest the hamstring.  Rest.  Here is the...

If Charlie Batch Can’t Win, Why Does He Exist?

I’m going to wade into Steelers territory for just a moment. I think the title says it all but let me elaborate.  The Steelers started an obviously hurt Ben Roethlisberger against the 49ers in a must win situation. Did Ben look good to anyone? Now we must assume Ben started because he gave the Steelers [...]
