Everybody panic, the season is over. Ben Roethlisberger is hurt and no one has any idea how long it will take him to heal. Considering he could die if he plays football in the near future, the Steelers will dive into the heart of the NFL season with Gary Coleman Byron Leftwich at quarterback. Pretty much nobody is confident in Leftwich at this point in his career, and not unjustly so. Leftwich seems to go on IR if he so much as gets shampoo in his eyes, a reputation that he made sure to remind everyone of when he was slow to get up after one play against Kansas City. But what is it that Leftwich still brings to the table?
Leftwich is the kind of guy who has to prove he still belongs in the NFL. Guess what: This is his chance. Let's not forget, Leftwich isn't some scrub the Steelers just picked up off the street. While the Eagles and 49ers are turning to the inexperienced Nick Foles and Colin Kaepernick, respectively, the Steelers and Bears have the luxury of backup quarte...

One thing we know about the Steelers, they take the “us against the world” mentality and run with it any chance they get. Bill Cowher preached it during his tenure, and the players today still use it when they feel like nobody is giving them a chance.
Right now, most of the league “experts” are leaving the Steelers for dead now that Ben Roethlisberger is out indefinitely...
Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley had his usually talk with the media on Thursday and made a point to say that they will call the offense around the strengths of quarterback Byron Leftwich while Ben Roethlisberger is sidelined by his shoulder and rib injury. He also made a point to say that the big picture of the offense will not in the process.
Injuries in key division games can deep-six a football team. There is no bigger set of division games than the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. the Baltimore Ravens.
These are two teams that hate each other and look forward to beating each other bloody twice a year, every year.

The Pittsburgh Steelers say Byron Leftwich will start for injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in Sunday's key matchup against the Baltimore Ravens.
Roethlisberger sprained his right shoulder in the third quarter of Monday night's win over Kansas City when he was slammed to the ground by two Chiefs linebackers in the third quarter.
Leftwich will be making his first start...
Byron Leftwich will start at quarterback for the Steelers this week against the Ravens.Fantasy Spin:Leftwich completed seven of 14 passes for 73 yards Monday against the Chiefs. He's filling in for injured starter Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder, ribs). We wouldn't expect much from Leftwich on Sunday despite Baltimore's porous secondary.
The last time the Steelers faced the Kansas City Chiefs and went to overtime was in 2009. Ben Roethlisberger was injured during that game and the following week the Steelers had to start their back-up quarterback on Sunday Night Football against the Baltimore Ravens, sound familiar?
In 2009 Dennis Dixon, now on the Ravens practice squad, made his first career start for the Steelers...
You are a sick person aren’t you? Sure, you have appropriately ripped your New York Jets all week to anybody who would listen. Sure, you swear you won’t waste time watching another game. But we all know that you will. You will be glued to your TV at 1 PM this Sunday, wondering in an anxious horror if your football team can truly get any worse…or if maybe, just maybe they could...
In the wake of Pittsburgh Steelers fans collective gasp after Ben Roethlisberger left with an unknown shoulder injury in the 3rd quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs, there will be a lot of pressure on both sides of the ball to compensate for No. 7’s absence going into the latter half of the season. Arguably having an MVP-quality season before the injury, Roethlisberger’s...
Todd Haley: Oh, so this is how it’s gonna be, is it? Moping around like a bunch of bar flies after all the good tail got claimed for the night. You ******* are harshing Boss Todd’s buzz. What is it? You’re down because we lost our walking assault charge? Listen, f*ckstains. We’re more than one man. We’re a system. A brilliant system of my design. If anything, losing Pig...
The game of football and especially at the professional level is about match-ups and being able to take advantage of them. Both the Steelers and Ravens have been scheming all week on how to take advantage of each other’s weaknesses.
Rarely does a game seem so simple in terms of those match-ups than this one and I’ve got it boiled down to the three keys that apply to both teams...
The Sunday night game features one of my favorite rivalries in sports in the Baltimore Ravens and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Unfortunately in this one, it is not going to be “what it could be” as the Steelers super star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be watching the game from the sidelines in this one.
In gambling, quarterbacks are the main position that moves the betting...
Rashard Mendenhall may finally be ready to return. He's the big name with the largest paycheck and most proven history so it stands to reason he'll get a chance to reclaim the starting gig in light of the other rushers struggling. Against the Chiefs on Monday night Jonathan Dwyer (19/56) and Isaac Redman (8/21) couldn't get anything going. The ground game will be critical...
Below are the week 10 offensive and defensive snap counts from the Pittsburgh Steelers 16-13 overtime win over the Kansas City Chiefs Monday at Heinz Field.
The Steelers once again saw all five starting linemen play the entire game. Unfortunately starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not as he saw 33 snaps and played just one series into the third quarter before injuring...
