Thanks for the memories, James Harrison

Steelers linebacker James Harrison is now former Steelers linebacker James Harrison.

Harrison tweeted his goodbye to fans Saturday.

I have plenty of memories of Steelers' Super Bowls, including Lynn Swann's catches, John Stallworth in Super Bowl XIV and Santonio Holmes' game-winner against the Cardinals.

His slam of a Browns fan running on the field was a classic. Any hit of a Cleveland player ranks up there, too.

Thanks for all the memories and living up to the Steelers' hard-hitting tradition at linebacker.

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…
