    Finally national commentators noticing

    I am glad to see others finally noticing some of the BS coming out of Pgh. On First Take, they finally questioned how any calf injury lasts as long as Troy's and that there is a problem when you are seen more on commercials and the side lines than seen on the play field. I am so sick of seeing Troy in commercials and on the side lines. I wouldn't miss him in the least if they just cut him next year. No calf injury known to mankind last this long. His injury is to his Achilles not to his calf. Once again, the Steelers are being liars.

    They also questioned why Batch is on an active roster at all, and at his age, let him be a coach if you want him around, but there is no reason to have a guy that age, with that weak of an arm, on your active roster. The Steelers are often loyal to a fault, and this is yet another case of that. Charlie is from Western PA, and the Rooneys always apply way too much weight to that. Who the F cares if a player is from PA? You allow your team to be inferior just to have more players from the region on the roster? That is moronic. Johnson should have been our 3rd-string QB. The front office/coaches have screwed the pooch at the fan's expense.

    As I predicted, this team went from 6-3 to 6-6 leaving no room for error. They have pulled off things like that before (see 2005) but the odds are, they won't win out the last 4 games. They need a purge. There are malcontents on this team and that shows up in the chemistry and end product. I am perfectly happy for a down season or 2 to get this team solid again. Trying to win with a patched up, jerry rigged team is not the way; starting players on past performance instead of today's reality (Hampton instead of McClendon, etc.) is no way to run a team. Mendenhall has proved more than ever that he sucks. End the Troy all-commercials-no-play ways. I would cut Wallace TODAY - what would we lose without that jack ass? It's time for this team to face realities and end their idealistic ways. Grow up.

    They asserted the first two paragraphs, the third one was my personal rant.

    Correction: the 2nd part of the 2nd paragraph was mine too.

    Skip Bayless agrees with your viewpoint, and that is vindication in your mind?

    If that doofus happened to agree with one of my opinions, that would probably cause me to start re-thinking my opinion.

    Bayless is simply an airbag who spouts out contrarian ideas in order to get a rise out of people.

    Talk to me when an knowledgable NFL mind (former player/coach/GM) agrees with you, not some newspaper blowhard.

    I guess in lloydroid's mind it is


    There are 2 things you count on from Skippy:


    1. Skippy blowing his load over Teblow

    2. getting some good laughs from his viewpoints.

    I love how some of your hatred for Skip is so immense that you are forgetting what the point is, making yourselves look silly. So, is your position that Troy really just has a pulled calf muscle? Is that what you are claiming? Damn, you look goofy. Do you know anything at all about injuries? Do you really think a pulled calf keeps you out for an entire season? I don't want any of whatever you are smoking; it must cause too severe of hallucinations.

    AH, yes, falling for the "blah, blah, blah, whine, whine, whine" because Bayless ate your lunch routine. It's not who says what, it's what is true. So, let's put your jacked mindset and logic mode to a test. If Skip Bayless has an opinion it automatically makes the opinion wrong. Do you have any sense at how flawed your logic is? Do you have no desire to realize the truth in life, or does your jaded, defensive needs to serve your ego preempt simply seeking what is true? So, by the very definition of what you assert, if Skip holds an opinion, it automatically proves said opinion must be flawed. Hmmmm. That sounds like a super way to evaluate things. FACT is no calf injury lasts this long. It must be his Achilles. I have been saying it for months, and now Skip has also realized it. So, using your "logic" (using the word as lightly as possible here), Troy really just has a pulled calf muscle since Skip said it must be more than that? Have a nice life with using logic like that. Wow. Hey, I heard Skip say the world was round, so it must be flat. I am using your model of logic here.

    And this just in: Terrell Suggs had an actual Achilles tear, and he is back playing football. But Troy just had a calf pull and he is missing the entire season. Isn't that special?
