Tiger's back stories about to roar into overdrive

Any minute now, Tiger Woods will wrap up the Farmers Insurance Open.

Even before he sinks that final putt, we've heard that he's back.

As much fun as it was to rip him when he was going though his public divorce, the media now wants to build him back up.

Sorry, folks, I'm still skeptical that he's all the way back.

This is just one tournament. It's on his favorite course. It's January.

Heap all the praise you want on Woods. In my book, he's not back until he wins a major.

That may or may not happen again.

He's lost the air of invincibility. In sports, that's difficult to get back.

The players will truly be the judge on Tiger's status. And, it won't be by what they say in the press.

If the pros start to quiver in a major when Tiger's making his climb up the leaderboard, then I'll start to be convinced.

Until then, I won't bestow the comeback label on him.

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…
