Gonna be tough ...
Gonna be tough ...
We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!
HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
With Batch missing both days of practice, we may have to roll with Mendenhall, Dwyer, Redman, and Rainey as our active RB's, and with Redman being healthier than Dwyer or Mendenhall at this point, ol' Redzone may be getting more carries than we'd expect.
If Woodley can't go, then I'd imagine Worilds would start (he seems to be better suited to Woodley's strong side OLB spot than Harrison's weak side OLB spot anyway), with Chris Carter as the primary back-up to both OLB spots.
If Sylvester can't go, we need to fill in another spot on special teams (and with Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith no longer on the active roster since Ta'Amu was reinstated from suspension), we may need to dress the human penalty flag DeMarcus Van Dyke once again.
Final Ruthless Mock:
1.22 CB Marcus Peters, 6'0" 197 lbs., Washington
2.56 FS Damarious Randall, 5'11" 196 lbs., Arizona State
3.87 TE Clive Walford, 6'4" 251 lbs., Miami
4.121 DE Henry Anderson, 6'6" 294 lbs., Stanford
5.160 WR Titus Davis, 6'1" 196 lbs., Central Michigan
6.199 OLB Kyle Emanuel, 6'3" 255 lbs., North Dakota State
6.212c OLB Max Valles, 6'5" 251 lbs., Virginia
7.239 RB John Crockett, 6'0" 217 lbs., North Dakota State
Jonathan Dwyer has received comparison by some on the board to Jerome Bettis. Just wondering if anyone with ready access to stats can show the ratio of game missed due to injury of the Bus, and that of Dwyer, for some comparison. Seems to me that Bus was durable, and JD has been less so (at least at this early stage of his career).
Not looking to be critical of JD here ... appreciate his hard-running style, and want to see more of him.
Narcissistic injury is the term used for any threat to a narcissist's outsized ego or self-esteem.
