    Default Steelers No. 2 quarterback likely will remain mystery

    Steelers No. 2 quarterback likely will remain mystery

    Tuesday, October 12, 2010
    By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette



    Steelers quarterbacks Charlie Batch, left, and Byron Leftwich.


    Who's going to be the No. 2 quarterback now that Ben Roethlisberger is back?

    Well, even Charlie Batch and Byron Leftwich don't know.

    Unless coach Mike Tomlin reveals his decision at his weekly news conference today, or decides to tell one of his backups later in the week, the selection will remain a mystery for at least a couple more days. And maybe until game day.

    Here's why:

    Unlike the routine under Bill Cowher, who always had the No. 2 quarterback take some snaps with the first-team offense at the end of a Friday practice, Tomlin does not let his backup quarterback work with the starters at all, not even for a series.

    So Batch and Leftwich will split time as the scout-team quarterback this week and nothing else. They won't know who the top backup is until Tomlin tells them.

    I would question the wisdom in this but somebody would probably accuse me of trying assassinate him or something!

    I have found, if I try to figure out Mike Tomlin the madder I get. So I don't try and figure him out anymore.
