No passing, no Ben, yet motivated Steelers are 2-0
With Dennis Dixon (knee) uncertain for Sunday and No. 4 quarterback Charlie Batch ineffective against Tennessee, Byron Leftwich may start against the Bucs, his team a year ago. Even though Leftwich wasn’t on the roster Sunday after being released the day before to create a roster spot for a defensive lineman.
Who dreamed all this up?
Dick LeBeau, in part. The 73-year-old defensive coordinator keeps reminding his players they were being written off as too old _ all but two starters will be 30 or older by next season _ after they couldn’t hold leads in the fourth quarter five times last season. After starting 6-2, the Steelers lost their next five.
“We’ve got a chip on our shoulder this year because of how things went down last year with our five-game losing streak,” nose tackle Chris Hoke said. “So we have something to prove. Sometimes when people wrote that we’re not going to be very good or maybe they’ll go 2-2 or 1-3 when Ben’s out, that’s a lot of the stuff that (makes us mad). For people to go out and say, `Hopefully, they’ll be 2-2, we think that’s a knock on us a little bit.’ “
