    Heading over the Mid Season Hump...Who on the Bench Will Step Up in the 2nd Half??

    Heading over the Mid Season Hump...Who on the Bench Will Step Up in the 2nd Half??

    So far we've seen DWYER step up, COLON is settling into his new position and FOSTER has elevated his game.

    But I was thinking Defensively:
    -A Run Stuffer on the Line like McClendon
    -Who's gonna get to the QB and add some pressure?
    -How about someone who can make a few key INTs???

    You're just begging someone to say Bench Wally.

    I agree. Use him like an old plough horse and run his legs off.
    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!

    On defense, I think Keenan Lewis will step up with some second half takeaways. He's covering well, and has 12 passes defensed so far...I think he converts some of those to INT's in November and December.

    On offense, I still think DeCastro will be able to contribute late in the season and into the playoffs. While our OL is starting to gel as it currently stands, with our OL luck, I can't see them remaining completely healthy throughout the rest of the season (especially since we seemed to be losing 2 o-linemen per game to injury earlier this season). If either of the guards get hurt, DeCastro should be able to come in and contribute (I like that Kugler's been keeping him involved with mental reps by having him chart the games on the sidelines while injured), and if either of the tackles get hurt before Gilbert is able to come back, we may have to move Colon or Foster outside to fill in, thereby opening up a spot for DeCastro at guard as well.

    on defense, I'm saying Troy.

    offensively, Chris Rainey...

    Steelersí Rainey expands role on offense

    By Ralph N. Paulk
    Published: Saturday, November 3, 2012



    The Steelers' Chris Rainey carries for a touchdown during the fourth quarter of the Steelers' 24-17 victory over the Bengals on Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012, at Paul Brown Stadium.

    Rookie running back Chris Rainey is beginning to settle into the Steelersí offense.

    Heís carried the ball eight the times the past two games after having only seven the first five games.

    ďIím starting to get involved in more plays, so every opportunity I get, Iím going to take it,Ē he said. ďIíll do whatever it takes to help the team win. Iím still working on special teams but just have to be patient. I know Iím not a starter, but Iíll do whatever it takes.Ē

    Rainey has averaged 3.9 yards on 15 carries and has eight receptions. Heís also averaging 27.2 yards on kickoff returns.

    I have a hunch that it's gonna take until year 2 until we really see what we can get out of Rainey. He's lightning quick, but I think he needs to get a little stronger and used to the speed of the game before we see the game click for him.

    I'm gonna vote for Troy and Mendy.

    I agree. If both can get healthy we can ride them in the second half of the season.

    I'm going to say Will Allen. He's getting involved more every game he's in and who knows when Troy is coming back.
