    having said that, I don't know why he throws it SO hard on short routes...
    It's called "touch". Other hard throwers like farve have it. Heftwich don't have it.

    I don't expect Carey Davis to catch a nolan ryan fast ball 6 yards away....and he shouldn't have to.
    i take it you didn't finish reading my post?

    The biggest issue I've seen with Leftwich since he's been here is that more of his passes ricochet off of recievers hands, faces etc. than actually get caught.

    Another AS masterpiece.

    Leftwich needs to put a little touch on the ball and the receivers and him probably need more time together. They are not on the same page and I'm sure with more reps they could be. I just wish Byron would think less howitzer and feel it more.

    He didn't move the O and didn't complete a pass. Although, to be fair, he was the relief pitcher in a game that was largely over. That I would boil down to just not having the requisite focus to move the team and kill the clock.

    It's hard to feel anything but good over the way the Steelers played today. Hopefully, when Lefty gets another chance, he'll step up his play, even if the outcome is far from in doubt.
    Gotta agree, Ms. Big Fan noted that to me earlier almost verbatim.
