Ben Roethlisberger/Byron Leftwich 2012 summary:
The Steelers failed to make the playoffs, but Roethlisberger enjoyed one of his best statistical seasons in offensive coordinator Todd Haley’s new short-passing scheme. Outlook:
Even though Roethlisberger was sacked for the fewest times (30) since 2005, he still was forced to miss three contests because of injury. Roethlisberger has completed a full 16-game schedule just once (2008) in his eight NFL seasons, which places a greater emphasis for Pittsburgh to have a sound second-stringer. Leftwich and third-stringer Charlie Batch could both be on the outs in 2013, leaving the Steelers to find another veteran alternative. The solution could be John Parker Wilson, who was claimed off waivers from Jacksonville on February 28. —Alex Marvez
