    True, true...but Jax has been hit hard with injuries as well, particular on the interior of their o-line. I think it will be a close, hard-fought game right down to the end. Could go either way. I hope we are able to pull it out...but we'll see...that is why they play the game. Go Steelers! Beat those Jagoffs!!!


    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204

    4-1 going into a much needed bye? I'll take that any day. Coming off the bye, we have some games that we can build some momentum before the really nasty part of our schedule.

    I hope I'm wrong on this one, but, I think the lack of depth on the defensive line may be the undoing of the Steeler season. Jax is physical, NY Giants are physical, Ravens II, Dallas, Eagles, Washington and Ravens I are physical. Even though some key players form other teams are out the schedule is loaded with teams that like to hit.

    The Steelers are getting hit with the injury bug, hopefully, some guys can get healthy after the Jags game. Or, they'll be scouring practice squads looking for players.

    Attrition may be the Steelers enemy and not the opponent.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?
