PITTSBURGH (AP) - Charlie Batch was convinced he could still do the job. He just didn’t know if he would have one.

A forgotten man on his own team, the 35-year-old quarterback was virtually ignored by the Steelers after Ben Roethlisberger became tangled in his off-field problems last spring. They traded for Byron Leftwich to take over Batch’s former job as backup, then relegated Batch to No. 4 on the depth chart behind the inexperienced Dennis Dixon.

Good thing for the Steelers that Batch refused to go away, because a team that seemingly had too many quarterbacks found itself down to one healthy one last week. And that was the man they had all but refused to play.
