If Leftwich is going to play (He would either way if little Ben is born), then I am truly grateful that he had a chance to shake off some rust in last night's game. He will get the majority of reps in practice this week to prepare for the game. Keep in mind that no matter what the analysts say about Flacco and Co., they have been pretty inconsistant all season. If the Browns had a coach who was truly playing to win and had the slightest incling of "clock management", they would have beat those "mighty" Ravens. The Steelers have something to prove this week. I'm excited about this game and have confidence in The Steelers!

I , for one, am glad we have Lefty backing up Ben. I believe he will be able to take us to wins in the next 3 games. Remember, it's not just about Lefty. The entire team has to come to play. The D really has to step up and we have to be able to run the ball. The 2008 team focused on the phrase, "band of brothers" and played hard one one another. They need the same "motivation" now. Play hard and keep winning , so when we get Ben back we will be better and the super bowl talk won't be just talk

The "Leftwich slow release" is unfortunately the narrative, so your numbers will fall on deaf ears. First, decision making and ball speed are two other factors involved in whether or not a pass gets where it's supposed to go on time.

Second, his release is greatly exaggerated. Doesn't look all that abnormal to me. Flacco's is similar.

QB's with unconventional throwing motions who make it to this level and play 10 years usually compensate in other areas. I'd love to see a Sports Science on him.

TD = 6
INT - 1
QBR = 93

“Probably about 20-25 miles per hour,” wide receiver Mike Wallace said of the difference between Roethlisberger and Leftwich. “Byron’s ball comes out a lot faster. I like Byron’s ball. Ben has a nice soft touch on it, you just pluck out of the air and keep rolling. Byron, you definitely got to brace yourself because it’s coming.”
