    Re: Aaron Smith may be out Sunday

    There's a story out about Aaron Smith's childhood, dad and granddad and it wasn't a pretty picture for Aaron growing up. I'm looking for it, but, I can't recall where I saw the article. When I find it I'll post it.

    Found it!

    What a joke.

    The only reason the line/D has still played well with injuries on the line is BECAUSE of Aaron Smith.

    We'll again see what his worth is this week...sadly.
    Cmon benny. Give credit where it's due. Answer this question, how can Aaron smith get credit for nick eason beating his guy and getting penetration through he oline?

    This is bad news. But there's more to life than football, and if A. Smith needs to take a respite from football for personal issues than he surely deserves it. Its just incredible to me how this team has just crumbled with regards to personnel missing from the rotation and still are able to compete week in and week out. This week's opponent is our biggest test yet. We can't let these guys come to our house and win. If the stains were able to defend their home turf, we surely can fare better.

    I really do not understand why some people think this way. Although Smith is a good player, he does not play the other positions on the Dline. Without those other players stepping up, the run defense would've collapsed. Hopefully the backups can do the same this week.

    It's the same as when you have a stud receiver who draws double teams. That allows someone else to step up on the other side.

    When the O line has to shift it's attention to A Smith it allows the other guys to step up.

    I really hope he plays.

    If not, I think we lose. I believe he means that much to the defense, just as we saw last season once he was out.

    Sorry to hear this. I hope things in A. Smith's life can get squared away soon.

    He is the most important member of this defense. No doubt about it. IMO Eason and Kirschke look better this year. But I am not ready to give them the job on every down, at least this is only a personal issue and not an extended injury.


    ...Lastly at least he might be missing the game against a NFC team.

    Defensive end Aaron Smith was excused from practice for the third day in a row because of personal reasons, and coach Mike Tomlin said "it's questionable" if he'll play against the Giants.
