LeBron James must be Dreaming ...

First, Kobe Bryant claimed this year's U.S men's basketball team would beat the 1992 Dream Team.

Now, LeBron James said the same thing.

It's nice to talk, but James and Bryant must be dreaming.

This year's team would not beat the 1992 team.

No way.

This year's team would not beat the 1996 team.

And I'm not sure this year's team is a lock to win gold in London, either.

The 1992 team was stacked with Hall of Famers in Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan. But the list doesn't stop there. There were 11 Hall of Famers on that team.

Other than Kobe and LeBron, I'm not sure anyone else from this year's team makes that 1992 squad.

And you can say the London team is more athletic, but tell me who on that team would stop David Robinson, Patrick Ewing or Karl Malone in the post?

No one.

That's this team's biggest weakness, no big men.

But it looks like dreaming could become a bigger shortcoming. They should focus on gold before they lose.

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…
