Postgame Steelers QB Byrron Leftwich

Q: What happened on that sixty-yard touchdown to Mike Wallace?

A: Well he did a good job of getting open and I hit him with the ball. They did a great job in coverage and I kind of moved the safety a little bit. I kind of pumped a little bit and once Mike gets even with a person, it's over. I just put it out there and let him run up under and he did a good of that.

Q: The first team offense, in general, looks like you're moving the ball more efficiently than the first preseason game…

A: Yeah, the first preseason game is always hard because, not to give any excuses, this whole game is about preparation during the week and going out there and playing on Sundays. In the preseason, you don't do that. You don't get the opportunity to prepare, scout your teams, your opposing teams, so it makes it tough. It really goes against all of the rules that once the regular season starts – you don't really prepare for that because you're still in training camp mode, installation mode, starting your offense, and doing all of those type of things. So it's really tough. There's not enough time in the day to really do all of that and try to game plan against somebody. As the preseason goes along, we get more and more of an understanding of your opponent and it tends to go smoothly.

Q: Another effective game by Isaac Redman. Do you like what he's doing out there?

A: Yeah, I think he's doing a great job and we've got a lot of good football players on this team. You need that to be successful in this league because you never know what's going to happen to someone.

Q: Was there a play of Ben Roethlisberger that stood out to you?

A: Yeah, the one to Spaeth. Just the way he found time and just do what Ben does, that's what Ben does. He decides the way to find time and find the open guy and that was a prime example of that right there
