Steelers radio analyst and former NFL QB Charlie Batch stopped by Gio And Jones on CBS Sports Radio. The first topic up for debate was whether Christian McCaffrey and Leonard Fournette are making the right decisions by sitting our their respective Bowl games.
“I can see both sides of the argument,” Batch said. “I would have loved to play in the bowl game. When you look at injuries happening, it makes you consider do I play in the bowl game or not. If you’re McCaffrey, you’re potentially the top running back in the draft, do you do it..no.”
Do players understand the decision in the locker room?
“You wouldn’t hold it against him at all,” said Batch. “You have to look at the bowl game. If this was the playoffs or a potential national championship bowl game, he’s playing. When you’re talking about the Sun Bowl, it doesn’t benefit him, I understand the decision. I can see why fans are upset about it.’
