The Pittsburgh Steelers didn’t skip a beat with Byron Leftwich replacing injured Ben Roethlisberger at quarterback Sunday night. That’s right. Leftwich can do everything Roethlisberger can do. He showed the same stage presence as Roethlisberger when he clutched his throwing shoulder on every other play. His shoulder bothered him because for some reason his touchdown dance involved flopping to the ground and landing on that shoulder. Leftwich temporarily commandeered Roethlisberger’s place in the hearts of Steelers fans when he scrambled 31 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 Steelers lead 31 seconds into the game. So whenever he showed pain the rest of the evening, it gave Steelers fans the same feeling as parents whose teenagers aren’t home yet at midnight. It’s the same feeling Steelers fans get when Roethlisberger is hurt or acts like he’s hurt. All right, all right, so maybe Roethlisberger doesn’t have two Super Bowl rings because of his dramatic flair. Leftwich is no Roethlisberger...

  • i would say the defense did do their job. you take a special teams error off its a steelers win, an offensive fumble in which they only allowed 3.
