Sorry it's been a while

I simply can't believe it's been more than a month since my last post.

And, as a writer, I can't believe how easy it is to get out of the habit of posting something here.

I'll try to get back in the habit of posting regularly again.

There certainly has been enough news going on in the sports world to comment on.

Penn State football seems to have recovered, Pitt football actually has won a couple games and Hurricane Sally lived up to it's billing.

Again, sorry I've let things slip. Thanks for checking in with the site and please return again.

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…
