PONTIAC- Lions' head coach Marty Mornhinweg will announce today that Charlie Batch will again be the starting quarterback for the Detroit Lions.

Batch replaced Detmer in the second half of Monday night's 35-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams. Both quarterbacks threw interceptions deep in Rams' territory. When Batch took over on the first possession of the third quarter, he gave the offense a lift.

There has be no official word but sources in the Detroit Lions organization confirmed the rumors that were going around the Silverdome on Tuesday after the Lions 35-0 lost to the Rams.

Mornhinweg is not happy with either quarterback, and said that "Really, they played about the same, neither one has played at the high level we've been looking for."

But he did say that rookie Mike McMahon was never a consideration.
