    He will have a sign that states where it is and how much it hurts...
    So now it will be a penalty if he gets hit between the top of his head and his ankle.
    We will only be allowed to grab his heal and top of his foot as long as it is done without malice...

    should be ugly but who cares as long as we win.
    Why do you not care about this? We should absolutely care how we win. Any game where the offense doesnt put up at least 16 points, the coaches should treat the offensive players like it was a loss.

    That nonsense is for fantasy leagues and power rankings. Passing for 500 yards and throwing 4 INTs won't necessarily get you the W. Getting the W gets your the W. It's all about strategy and game theory. In this case, the coaches probably feel that the Steelers would only beat us if they had great field position. If we made them move down the field they would make the mistakes for us.

    If joe were to pass for 500 yards and 4 INT's regularly, he wouldnt be our QB very long. Its this same scared thinking that has us play down to competition and lose out on the #1 overall seed.

    Pat Kiwan called Ben out earlier in the year about his constant mysterious injuries, he's a pretty credible analyst that a lot of people listen to.

    Supposedly Ben barely threw any yesterday in practice.

    PITTSBURGH — Injured Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger just threw softly during the individual portion of Wednesday’s practice, and the word from a team source is that Roethlisberger will have to work through the tearing of scar tissue before he feels comfortable enough to throw with any kind of velocity.

    This has the makings of a funeral for the Steelers' season.

    The Ravens had better not play that ball control crap in their own house. I will not be happy.

    I just saw this.....commented on earlier in thread but thought I'd post:

    Steeler starting RT Marcus Gilbert (ankle) has been placed on IR. Rookie OT Mike Adams (ankle) didn’t practice Wednesday and is considered very questionable to play.

    Steeler starting LT Max Starks (back) didn’t practice Wednesday and is considered questionable to play.

    Steeler starting G Willie Colon (knee) didn’t practice Wednesday and is considered very questionable to play.
