    Halfway Thru the Season ... Who Steps Up Now???

    We are halfway thru the season.
    Over the 2nd Quarter of the season we've seen these men step up their game:
    -Willie Colon
    -Ramon Foster
    -Keenan Lewis
    Honorable Mention: Ike Taylor (could step up more down the stretch, but then again could flop)

    So who steps up?? Who will be allowed to step up??

    I agree. I just don't understand Hampton getting so many snaps. He gets zero pressure on the QB.
    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!

    In Running Situations can't McClendon play in HOOD's spot at DE along with CASEY?? Maybe even use him in a 3 Technique and playing WOODLEY shaded over the Right Tackle??

    I usually trust the coaches decisions in personnel situations but not getting McClendon on the field is mind boggling.
    the only thing I can think of is he's not up to par in preparation.

    I'd like to see Timmons a bit more. He's had a good first half of the year, but I'd like to see more. I'd also like to see Troy step up. This is more because he really hasn't been a factor the first half of the year.

    Troy would have to get onto the field to step up. Timmons has clearly been our best LB this season. Both Woodley and Harrison are underperforming.

    That's why I mentioned Troy. I'd like to see him on the field.
