    Steelers Activate Casey Hampton and Rashard Mendenhall From PUP List

    a pleasant surprise...


    Steelers Activate Casey Hampton and Rashard Mendenhall From PUP List

    Friday, August 17

    The Steelers activated veteran nose tackle Casey Hampton and veteran running back Rashard Mendenhall from the PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) List, the team announced today.

    Hampton is in his 12th season with the Steelers and has played in 157 career games with 146 career starts. A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Hampton was recovering from a knee injury in the offseason.

    Mendenhall is in his fifth year with the Steelers after originally being the team’s first-round pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Mendenhall has two 1,000-yard rushing seasons and has amassed 3,367 yards rushing in his first four years. He was recovering from a knee injury that he suffered in the 2011 regular-season finale at Cleveland.

    This is a very surprising move because it means that they won't be able to carry two fill in players on the Fianl 53, but almost for certain neither Hampton or Mendy will be able to play. I am confused by this.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I never would have thought that Mendy and Big Snack would come off the PUP list before Jason Worilds...

    Wow...total shocker with Mendenhall. Great news though.

He's ugly, he stinks, his mouth stinks, his breath stinks, and basically his soul stinks, too.

    why the hell would you talk sheet about Casey? He went to my ex-rival school, but understand how valuable he has been over the last decade. Whether his time is running out or not, no sense in taking shots at a guy very instrumental in holding down the DL for 2 Super Bowl teams. Just don't get this. Though you are just a kid.

    Casey is just a shadow of the player he was at one time. McLendon in now the best NT we have. IMO if Ta' amu had shown he was ready for prime time then cutting Casey would be a serious topic of discussion. Fortunately for Casey it looks like T-mu needs a year of seasoning.

    You know that McLendon is the best NT we have after watching him play one half of preseason football?
    You are good bro

    I think McLendon will be good but I'm not going to start bashing "big snack". If he's healthy he's going to be solid as he always is and with McClendon stepping up Hampton won't have to be beast mode all the time just some of the time.

    I know it's the preseason, but McClendon was collapsing the pocket like a young Hampton used to. I think Hampton peaked in the SuperBowl XL run. But he's not the All Pro NT he once was.

    You might even be able to make the case that Casey's lack of push up front makes QBs comfortable in the pocket. No longer afraid to step up. And they make less mistakes as a result and we end up with no turnovers or splash plays.

    For a 3-4 to function at it's peak, you need to have a great NT. And as good as Casey's been, I think it's fair to question is he great any longer? We need our NT to be great. It's the most important position on our D. Actually without the right 3-4 NT, I'd go as far to ask does a 3-4 make sense without this guy?

    McClendon's been one of the best surprises last year. This year, he looks like he turned into the Incredible Hulk. He looks like he made a Barry Bonds like transformation this past offseason. And it looked like it showed in his short time on the field last week.
