Steelers’ Selection of Landry Jones is a Head Scratcher

There is no question the Pittsburgh Steelers needed to accomplish something whether through the late rounds of the NFL Draft or in signing undrafted free agent players. That ‘something’ was to find a younger back-up quarterback for Ben Roethlisberger as Byron Leftwich is out of the picture and with Charlie Batch being somewhere near the age of gaining his AARP card. The Steelers...

On Friday, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the Pittsburgh Steelers were really wanting to get back quarterback Brian Hoyer, who spent a short time on their roster last season when Ben Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich were both sidelined by injuries. That want was made impossible recently when the Arizona Cardinals put a second-round tender on the 27-year...

Steelers Backup Quarterback Situation Will Be Interesting To Watch Play Out

The Pittsburgh Steelers will certainly be faced with a backup quarterback dilemma next season as both Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich are once again unrestricted free agents. While there is a good chance that one of the two will be brought back, you have to think that the position will be addressed via the draft or in free agency. The problem with both of those scenarios, however...

Writing on the wall for Byron Leftwich and Rashard Mendenhall?

You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to rationally think to yourself that both Rashard Mendenhall and Byron Leftwich may very well be looking at their last season in a Steelers uniform. Given the production of both players this season, or lack thereof, the lack of playing time post injury, and the recent updates by Mike Tomlin in his Tuesday press conference this week, things...

Anytime your franchise QB goes down and you're faced with starting 3-years-removed-from-Tampa Byron Leftwich and 2-years-removed-from-spot-starting Charlie Batch against division rivals in successive weeks, the forecast is grim.

Steelers Offensive Line Breakdown – Baltimore Ravens – Week 11

Pittsburgh Steelers: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#10)

Record: 6-4 Last week: 9 (-1) I have no idea what Mike Tomlin was thinking leaving Byron Leftwich out there when he was clearly hurt. There’s no real difference in talent level between him and Charlie Batch; in fact, I thought Batch should have been the starter in the first place after Ben Roethlisberger was ruled out. He’s a better fit for their quick throw, timing based offense...
