Chiefs QB Palko Looks Forward To NFL Start

PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Former Pitt Quarterback and Kansas City Chiefs backup Tyler Palko will get his first start in the NFL this week after starter Matt Cassell went down with an injury. He joined Bob Pompeani Saturday on 93-7 The Fan to talk about it.

Palko has worked hard throughout his career and now he finally gets his chance. This is not an easy start for him as it will be this Monday night against the New England Patriots. He then moves on to play the Pittsburgh Steelers next week in Kansas City.

But Palko is excited for the challenge and looks forward to playing against some really good teams and defenses.

The former Panthers QB is surrounded by western Pennsylvania receivers in Kansas City (Jonathan Baldwin and Steve Breaston), and he enjoys the local connection and hopes to be able to get the ball to them as much as possible.

Harrison Sounds Off

Read the complete article of James Harrison sounding off against .. well, everyone.

Calling Roger Goodell the devil... check

Calling out teammates... check

Calling out the New England Cheatriots... check

Calling out Brian Cushing... check

Calling out league policy... check

Harrison should have a "shut up" clause in his contract for real.  The guy is a great player and he's even better at channeling his anger to the playing field.  But come on now Harrison, just stay away from the microphone.  Your not a good talker and you can easily be taken out of context.  The result of this is now the Pittsburgh Steelers will have a greater target on their back this year.

O-line Final Challenge

The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line has one more big challenge for the 2008-2009 NFL season.  And what a challenge it is, for the Pittsburgh Steelers 6th Super Bowl victory.  Truth be told, I think the Steelers offensive line issues have not received enough publicity this week. 

The NFL analysts have been more interested in Larry Fitzgerald and the Steelers defense more than anything else.  But the game could and probably will be decided up front on both sides of the ball.  The Steelers offensive line will have their hands full to say the least.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm are very familiar with the Steelers sub-par offensive line.  They know their strengths and weakness and you can expect that both have been relaying their knowledge to the defensive staff of the Arizona Cardinals. 

The Steelers have the advantage in run blocking against the Cardinals.  The Cardinals are an undersized front and are not nearly aggressive up-front as teams the Steelers are used too and have played against.  The New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, San Diego Chargers, New York Giants, Cleveland Browns, etc are all bigger and more aggressive defensive fronts that the Steelers have faced.  I would expect that the Steelers should be able to run on the Cardinals.  And make no mistake about it; we need Parker, Moore, and Russell to have a huge game which will in turn, open up the passing game. 

However, the Steelers have a disadvantage against the pass rushers of the Arizona Cardinals.  The Cardinals defensive front, while undersized, has very quick pass rushers coming off the corner.  This is by far the Steelers biggest weakness and could potentially win the game for the Arizona Cardinals and is a huge matchup for the Steelers.  Willie Colon will have his hands full and better not jump offsides to try to compensate for the speed rush.  Max Starks is the slowest footed left tackle in the league.  Ben Roethlisberger must get rid of the ball quickly, he must hit his quick hot reads, and must punish the Cardinals for sending blitzes his way (i.e. get the ball in Heath Miller’s and Mewelde Moore’s hands!)

While the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line has been better later in the season, they must put together a good performance Sunday in order for the Steelers to hoist their sixth Lombardi trophy.
