    Next Man Up!

    What a great job by our line, our running backs, and even our return guys. We have been doing an outstanding job of compensating for injuries this year!

    We were down to our 14th string running back at one point in the game. Well done Steelers.

    You'd think we actually have good coaches who prepare the whole team well.

    Thanks for the lesson, Pap. You'd think I'd have learned better by now.

    And our star, well-paid, receiver goes down early and we are stuck with a malcontent as our go to guy, and a third string punt returner

    Steelers don’t expect to have Antonio Brown on Monday night
    Posted by Michael David Smith on November 6, 2012, 2:26 PM EST

    The Steelers plan to play without their leading receiver and punt returner when they meet the Chiefs on Monday night.

    Antonio Brown, who suffered a sprained left ankle on Sunday against the Giants, is unlikely to play against the Chiefs, coach Mike Tomlin said. Tomlin said that the injury limits Brown’s “short-term quickness,” and it’s tough for a receiver and punt returner to play when an ankle injury is slowing him down. Brown leads the Steelers with 42 catches and is their primary punt returner, but they’ll be in good hands with Emmanuel Sanders getting more reps at receiver and taking over the returns while Brown is out. Sanders scored a 63-yard touchdown on a punt return against the Giants after Brown went down.

    Tomlin wouldn’t say so, but the Steelers may also be calculating that they can beat the Chiefs without Brown, and they’d much rather play it safe with him this week so that he can be closer to 100 percent for the following week’s AFC North showdown with the Ravens.

    Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer has a good chance of playing this week after missing the Giants game with a quad injury, Tomlin said, but running back Rashard Mendenhall may miss another game with an Achilles injury.

    Tomlin also said that Ravens game could mark the return of safety Troy Polamalu, who has missed most of the season with a calf injury.

    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Same just posted on ESPN too. Good news is Dwyer looks like he will be back

    PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Steelers will likely be without leading receiver Antonio Brown next Monday night when they host the Kansas City Chiefs.
    Brown sprained his right ankle in last Sunday's 24-20 victory over the New York Giants. Coach Mike Tomlin called Brown's status "very much in doubt." Brown leads the Steelers with 42 receptions and is second on the team with 499 receiving yards.
    If Brown sits, it's likely Emmanuel Sanders will take Brown's spot in the starting lineup, with veteran Jerricho Cotchery moving up to starting slot receiver.
    The Steelers will also be without safety Troy Polamalu, who will miss his fifth straight game and seventh overall with a right calf injury. Running back Jonathan Dwyer, who sat out last week with a right quad injury, is expected to play.
    With Rainey likely out I wonder if they will activate a WR from the practice squad or use more two and three TE sets?? Thoughts?

    All season long, we've had Wallace, Brown, Sanders, and Cotchery, with Rainey as an alternate option if needed at WR. If Brown and Rainey can't go, I doubt we'd go with just Wallace, Sanders, and Cotchery at WR (considering how much of a passing league it is these days). If one of them gets hurt (and considering Sanders will also be handling KR and PR duties, that's a possibility), we'd only have 2 WR left. I'd think they'd have to promote Clemons or Gilreath up from the practice squad to the active roster, right?
