Did Tiger Woods gag on Sunday?

Tiger Woods lost.

That was a couple days ago and I'm still stunned.

That's not supposed to happen -- at all. Anytime Woods has the lead in a major, he's supposed to win. It's predetermined. It's automatic.

Well, tell that to Y.E. Yang.

Woods' battle with Yang was one to remember on Sunday at Hazletine.

I'm still a bit perplexed by how many people have reacted following the end of the PGA Championship.

It seems not many people want to say Tiger Woods choked.

It's hard to suggest, let alone believe. But, think about it for a second.

If the roles were reversed, and Woods shot a 70 and Yang a 75, what would people have said about Yang gagging on a lead entering the final round?

I'll bet there would be a mention or two of Yang choking.

That doesn't diminish what Woods has accomplished to date. He's his generation's greatest golfer, and likely the best of all time.

But he still didn't close it out when he should have.

What do you think?

So much for Byron the great backup

I never understood the Steelers' fascination with their backup quarterbacks.

They've had either Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich for what seems like ages now.

And when the Steelers really needed a backup, Leftwich couldn't deliver.

Leftwich rambled 31 yards for a touchdown Sunday against the Ravens, but other than that burst, the Steelers couldn't do anything on offense in a 13-10 loss that puts them in a bad position in the AFC North.

Leftwich, with his long delivery, looks better suited for the Pirates' bullpen than behind center.

He went 18-for-39 passing for 201 yards, but couldn't help a Steelers' offense that looks lost right now.

The Ravens came into the game with a weak defense. The thought was Leftwich could manage the game, the Steelers could find a running back to rely on and they'd escape with a win.

It didn't work out that way.

And it looks like we could see Batch at QB this week -- or someone else.

The Steelers are worried about Leftw…
