Steelers toss Pack a bone.

There may be a ray of hope for Sunday's game against the Steelers at Lambeau: neither starting QB Ben Roethlisberger nor RB powerhouse Jerome Bettis will play. They are being replaced by backup QB Charlie Batch (who has only passed 8 times since 2001...and that was in the 2003 season!) and RB Duce Staley who hasn't carried the ball yet this year.

The Steelers -- and the football gods -- have finally thrown the Pack a bone. There is a slightly better chance for a win today than there was earlier in the week. Let's hope that this is one time the Pack takes advantage of an edge, however so slight it may be.
