Is this new? I noticed a couple times he was on the special teams unit, has he been doing this all year and I just missed it?

hmmm, I have not noticed. :huh:

He hasnt been on ST all year that I have seen.. I know we are alittle banged up so that along w/ the fact that many times in the past the Steelers have played starters on ST for big game situations.

I don't think Porter is playing special teams. I saw at least once, though, where the Steelers kept most of the starting defense in for a punt return, expecting a possible fake punt I guess.

Actually, I'd like to see a few more starters in the special teams unit as we go into the playoffs. I seem to remember the Patriots doing this with great success. Is that true Mr. LivinInThePast?

Here we go.

A few years ago especially now that I think about it, we had ALOT of starters on special teams becuz back when Jay Hayes was the coach our ST was so bad we had to play the starters.

we NEED someone who can tackle on kickoffs! Maybe we need Porter, But that will never happen

I never thought of Joey on Special Teams even though he is pretty good. That was confusing. But seems to have worked..

Yup it was on a couple of punts I saw him out there, and yes he did look completely lost. I think Troy and Hope would be awesome ST players.
