I’m sure there was somebody out there that was still under the belief/delusion that Charlie Batch would be starting two Sunday’s from now against the Cleveland Browns, or that there was still some level of debate as to who would (or should) be the No. 1 quarterback.
On Tuesday, Mike Tomlin confirmed the obvious (and left no gray area for people to manufacture their own controversy) and announced that Ben Roethlisberger will start the Steelers next game.
While speaking on Sirius NFL radio, Tomlin said the following:
“He’s going to get his normal reps in terms of preparing for the game that he’s gotten since I’ve been here in terms of preparing a starter to play, and, of course, he’s going to start next Sunday.”
And it’s settled.
