Detroit Lions fan Don Wilkins of Detroit holds up a sign aimed at Pittsburgh Steelers backup quarterback Charlie Batch during the fourth quarter at Ford Field in Detroit, Saturday, Aug. 24, 2002. It is said that one of the toughest jobs in Detroit is being the starting quarterback for the Lions. Just ask Charlie Batch. Four years after winning the starting job as a rookie and two years after signing a $50 million, five-year contract, Batch found himself without a job. On Saturday, Batch returned as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who faced Detroit in the first-ever game at Ford Field. Boos filled the air when Batch entered the game late in the first half. When his first pass fell incomplete, fans cheered loudly. (AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)
