If Starks goes out for Baltimore, who steps in to replace him?

God, Suggs is going to be all over that side if that's the case.

all ya'll are worse than a bunch of old women gossiping over the back fence


Steelers notebook: Brown, Polamalu out

Receiver Antonio Brown, his injured ankle still badly swollen, remained out of practice Wednesday as the Steelers began practicing for the Ravens.

Safety Troy Polamalu (calf), linebacker Chris Carter (abdomen), right tackle Marcus Gilbert (ankle), defensive end Brett Keisel (shoulder), left tackle Max Starks (ankle) and Ben Roethlisberger (multiple) also sat out.

Such a long list isn’t uncommon during the week after a Monday night game.

Rashard Mendenhall fully participated, meaning the Steelers could have their top three running backs healthy against the Ravens

o-line and running game need to help Byron out

The Ravens and their awfully annoying fans have a ton of bluster after blowing out the Raiders "Who we didn't beat de derp"

I really just want this win so they can go take their purple flags off their cars, you know, the normal routine for Ravens fans after they realize their team might not get the division afterall. They tend to be bandwagoners

Rollerskates Scott is too busy scrubbing Suggs floors and washing his car.

Starks is just off so that he can protect the left side of Ben's hospital bed.

Short week, only had one day off before practice. All hands will be on deck unless they're busy holding dangling ribs in place.

It's Ravens Week.

injuries in the uberviolent game of football. thats a real head scratcher. who'd a thunk :huh:

whoever said its time to fire the training staff, made a completely moronic and ignorant statement cause we have one of the finest staffs in the league and no amount of "training" prevents ben's rib from popping out.

EVERY team is suffering a myriad of injuries. steelerfans just dont follow every team to notice.

its not because every teams training staffs suck.

its because grown men hit hard.

Aside from the Gilbert falling on knees thing, the rest of the inuries are a result of a team that plays way more physical than most other teams.

Troy rams his head into people for a living. Clark once knocked himself out while hitting McGahee. Et cetera.

The downside of being physical is that it takes a toll, and every once in a while, someone is going to be injured. BUT, I'll take the intimidation factor (teams do NOT like playing against the Steelers) for the one or two players who have to sit out every week.

Play by the sword; die by the sword. And, thankfully, the Steelers mostly win those battles.
