Kraft can't be serious about being duped, can he?

Patriots owner Robert Kraft says he was "duped" by Aaron Hernandez.

Does anyone really believe him?

Plenty of NFL teams passed on Hernandez because of his history at Florida.

The Patriots took a chance on Hernandez based on his exceptional talent. Hernandez took that opportunity and ran with it on the field. He was one of the top tight ends in the league.

The Patriots rewarded him with a mega-contract.

The Patriots acted like any college team or pro team, they rewarded a player that can help them win.

If Kraft was angry, mad or extremely disappointed, then I'd buy it.

You can't blame the Patriots for Hernandez's actions, and they have to be commended for cutting Hernandez.

But duped? C'mon.

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…
