View Full Version : Why was Leftwich left in the game after the half??

He was clearly hurting since the first TD, kept getting drilled and getting hurt more, and was left in the game. Makes no sense. Tomlin has to be a man and take him out of the game because he's not going to admit that he needs to be taken out. Tomlin, open your eyes! When a guy as strong as Lefty can barely get the ball 30 yards down the field you have to do something!!!

I was screaming this the entire second half. The strong arm is is Lefty's upshot, and he could barely throw it thirty yards. Batch should have come in at halftime.

IMO Tomlin should be disciplined for this stunt! He lost the game for us!

Leftwich has such a strong arm and when he's under throwing everything it's pretty obvious he needs attention

Bad decision for not bringing in Batch. Oh well, time to get ready for next week. If Steelers lose to Cleveland the fans will be calling for someones head.

Agreed. Plus **** poor clock management. Defense played there asses off. Poor playcalling.

Like Black@Gold said, it makes it that much more frustrating that it was a very winnable game.

To only lose by three and giving up 13 points yea its really frustrating especially since Stevie Wonder could see Lefty wasn't effective tonight but Tomlin just stands there on the sideline without a clue......I'm always against Batch to since he is so old but it was clear Lefty didn't have it tonight and he should have been yanked at the half.....

When a QB, that is renown for his "big arm", can't throw a 25 yard pass, it's time to pull him.

Not sure if Batch can throw it 30 yds anymore. LOL:thinking:
Yeah,Leftbitch was hurting,looks like bruised ribs maybe?
This is what you get when you gamble with two stiffs
as your backup QB's. Mediocre play in a game that the
D stepped up,the ST unit F'd up and was winnable if the
inept O could have sustained drives and finished.
Over and done now. Get Batch some Geritol and muscle rub
because he's gonna have to come in soon.:evilshake:

Batch needs to play next week. Lefty is so banged up it's ridiculous. Or bring someone else in. Honestly I don't care as long as it isn't Byron Leftwich.
