Steelers to workout QB’s; Fear Leftwich will miss time with injuries

In Sunday Night’s in-division game between the Steelers and the Ravens, Steelers starting QB Byron Leftwich took a beating and hobbled off the field several times.

Steelers Offense Never Had Any Short Fields To Work With Against Ravens

Prior to the game Sunday night I wrote about how the Pittsburgh Steelers offense would need a few short fields to work with in order to beat the Baltimore Ravens. Those short fields never materialized. Whether it be by turnover or by return, the offense was going to need help as I knew it would be asking too much to continually to expect quarterback Byron Leftwich to drive long...

Ravens, Steelers play even in third quarter

Not too much action in the third quarter of the rivalry game between the Ravens and Steelers. The Ravens couldn’t take advantage of a Byron Leftwich interception, but were still able to come up with a 39-yard field goal by Justin Tucker. The Steelers weren’t able to get in the end zone on a stout Ravens’ defense. They had to settle for a Shaun Suisham field goal. At the end...

Ravens-Steelers Live Blog, First Half

After an unforeseen somewhat competent version of Chad Henne appeared in Houston, there is a touch more hope that a better than useless Byron Leftwich could emerge for what at one point seemed like a game worthy of its Sunday Night Football timeslot. By which I mean, still not a lot of hope. The Ravens put up 55 points last week. Granted, that was at home against against the awful...
