    Our RB health is downright frightening, but MM had some success running against a very physical Ravens D, and we can always sign Russell back from the PS.

    Waiting for the postgame... hopefully the injuries weren't as bad as they seemed.
    Their Offense is decimated as well. I remember after the 1st game that they lost 3 starting O-Linemen already...

    I heard it in a post game interview w/ suzy colbert however he DID NOT use the words "told Arians" He said he suggested it (he didn't say to who) AND he said something about calling his own plays.

    I suggested earlier in the week in one of threads that I'd like to see Ben call the plays. Quarterbacks are heavily involved in the flow of the game. They have a better idea of what plays will work than a coach.

    For all of the problems that this team has, we have to say so far that our DL depth is very good.

    Ben HIMSELF said it in an interview after the game.

    Bull. He said SPECIFICALLY that he suggested to "Coach Arians and Coach Tomlin"

    Yes, the ones we have are playing very well, but, we're thin with only 5 healthy defensive linemen. Any more injuries there and attrition will doom the Steelers.

    Pappy
    Eason: 28
    Hoke: 32
    Smith: 32
    Kirschke: 34
    Roye: 35

    I think that says it all... I know many linemen can maintain strong play as they age, but having five guys over 30 will catch up to us later in the season.

    I love how every topic (in this case, one about the injuries that occurred tonight) somehow disintegrates into yet another "We must fire Arians" thread within 3 posts. Who are you people trying to convince at this point? Give it a rest already. I swear that someone is going to try to argue that the reason Druckenmiller pulled his offer to buy the team is because the front office refused to fire Arians. We should just appease the masses and do a cathartic Arians photoshop contest next so everyone can let their venom flow in a more creative way at least.
