Tiger's not out of woods just yet

By many accounts, Tiger Woods is the favorite to win the U.S. Open.

It's just like the Masters, when Woods was coming off a convincing win and was tabbed as the favorite.

Tiger told us he was ready for a win and his game was in shape.

It didn't work out that way.

Tiger looked normal and didn't win a green jacket.

The Open starts Thursday and Tiger is coming off another convincing win.

We're also hearing similar comments about everything clicking for Woods before the tournament.

We'll see how that works out for him.

I think Tiger is trying to convince himself, the media and the rest of the PGA Tour his game is back.

He's trying to bring back the intimidation factor.

I don't think the top players are buying it.

And I don't think Woods' game is tip-top shape.

I think he'll eventually win another major, maybe even two.

It won't be this week at the Open.

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…
