The Pittsburgh Steelers may be facing a quarterback situation, and not just the Ben Roethlisberger suspension, Byron Leftwich is feeling froggy.
While appearing on The Sirius Blitz yesterday, Leftwich was asked by the hosts (Adam Schein and Rich Gannon) about whether or not Ben Roethlisberger is automatically given the starting job when he returns from suspension.
The hosts asked “You’re the quarterback for the Steelers. Pittsburgh goes 3-1 or 4-0. Does Ben automatically get the job back?” Leftwich responded , “I don’t know.”
Okay, first of all, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin hasn’t named a starter yet. Maybe Tomlin has told Leftwich he has the inside track, maybe Byron is assuming that he’ll win the job. But for Byron “The Human Windmill” Leftwich to consider himself as the same caliber of NFL quarterback as Ben Roethlisberger is hilarious.
If the Human Windmill gets the starts while Ben is suspended, expect to see a heavy dose of running the football, as soon as Goodell clears Roethlisberger to return, sit down Byron and don’t touch the ball again for the rest of the year.
