BLACK QUARTERBACK TO THE RESCUE CHARLIE BATCH

WHO ARE YOU GONNA CALL ( GHOST PLAYED BY BEN ROETHLISBERGER )

If your problem

was Ghosts you’d call

Ghostbusters

But if you’re in Pittsburgh and

your Starting QB has

an emergency Appendectomy

( a result of his motorcycle accident ? )

you ‘d better call

Black QB Charlie Batch

if you still want to Win

That pretty much sums up the NFL season opener featuring SuperBowl Champion Pittsburgh Steelers and Hopeful Miami Dolphins. NEW Miami Starting Quarterback Daunte Culpepper was expected to be the Black Quarterback story . Instead we were Treated to the Delights of a Black on Black QB matchup.

Better this Way

The Black Quarterback

has to Win

Back to the Game. Clearly Batch who might not have gotten a chance to play all season as Hyped Up Ben Roethlisberger’s Backup, instead Batch played and outplayed the far far far better known Culpepper.

While there Stats were somewhat comparable ( not really ) the outcome certainly was not. Culpepper was 18 for 37 for 262 yards, NO TDs but TWO costly interceptions and his longest pass play 52 yards.

On the other side of the Gridiron

Charlie Batch was 15 for 25 for 209 yards and THREE TDs, NO interceptions and his longest pass play 35 yds. longer for 87 yards and a Dramatic Touchdown. Let’s revise the comparison. Batch FAR outplayed Culpepper. Even if he Tossed for less yardage. Football is a game of TDs not yardage. Anyway.

In fairness

Into the 3rd Quarter it looked like the Dolphin’s game to lose which they did. Miami had come back to take a 17-14 Lead before one of those DUMB face mask grabbing penalties by a Dolphin transformed what would have been a Pittsburgh turnover deep un their territory likely setting up another Miami scoring opportunity – instead the Steelers got a 1st Down and took the Ball down the Field.

Miami never recovered

As Steelers Quarterback Charlie Batch took Command of the Gridiron, Miami and the Game. As the Dolphins gave him a nice assist with bad plays and bad calls by their Coach. If you didn’t know. If you had been away on a Intergalactic fishing trip across the Cosmos or something, coming back and watching this Game you would have “logically” assumed that Charlie Batch is THE Starting Quarterback for the NFL Champion Pittsburgh Steelers. What else would you think.

The Fact is

after Thursday’s performance

Charlie Batch should be

Pittsburgh’s Starting QB

and Ben Roethlisberger

his Bachup if only

Life was Fair.
