Other teams suffer injuries - but nothing like this. Something is starting to stink. Are our players being trained and worked out correctly? Are their post-workout treatments being done correctly or not 'up-to-par'?
I don't like what I'm seeing. I know injuries happen. But not like this. Is and should our training staff be under the microscope??
I've been wondering the same thing for a long time myself.
I mean, I know that injuries are inevitable, but why is it that we always seem to have far more starters on crutches than any other team or even any past Steeler team?
For Three decades, we had exactly Three Centers.
Yet in the last two seasons, we've had to rotate three different players in and out of the Center position alone and that doesn't even begin to address the Chinese Fire Drill we've had at Tackle and Guard.
It can't all be accidental or because of bad technique and I really wonder if the trainers know what they're doing.
