Got to watch Leftwich in the game agains Buffalo and to read his comment about being in Pittsburgh.

I cannot imagine that the Steelers want to keep him. For a veteran he did not play well, Dixon was better. And his comment about Daunte was out-of-line. I am sure if this is an example of his attitude, he will be a locker room problem.

Bring back Batch when he is able. Don't do as the commentator suggested to keep Leftwich.

GO STEELERS

Justin, we can only hope, but all the same we need a backup. Any good strategy must have a contingency plan. Personally i don't think leftwich is it, but i dont have any suggestions at this point.

Just for the record, Big Ben already brought us the 5th ring.
