Woods still short of dominant form

Tiger Woods always is the story, isn't he?

He was in control of the Masters Friday when things went awry.

By now you heard what happened, and have heard all sorts of opinions whether he should have been penalized or not, and whether he should have been disqualified.

My point today is if Tiger is the dominant golfer everyone wants him to be, he still would have won the Masters.

And maybe he tried.

He's just not the same golfer.

The chase for Jack Nicklaus' record of 18 majors continues, but Woods remains four back.

I'm not sure he gets there.

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…
