Backup quarterback for Ben. Time for a poll: Will Batch or Leftwich be in black and gold next season?

I'm betting both will not be players with the Steelers this season but you might see Charlie as a coach.

Bruce was my quarterback during a WVU football camp tournament back in 2000. He was a pleasure to block for because he only needed about two or three seconds to find someone. We won the tournament, and it's one of my favorite sports memories. Glad to see him back home.
