there is absolutely NO indication that the steelers would half ass it and not put a premium on a training staff, look the other way and settle for second best. i thought steelerfans knew our team better.

but of course the fan's psychology NEEDs to find someone or something to blame for this-

interesting were the comments on gilbert because that is the tongue in cheek conclusion the author of linked article comes up with-

im not sure that isnt that far fetched, but then again, i beleive that gilbert is pretty much a turd who never has put in the extra work in the first place.
Each guy is different. At first I thought maybe it was because we have a lot of 30+ starters. But there's a ton of young guys going down.

RB's always get hurt on every team. It's just a matter of time. O-Line, more of the same.
Troy has been injury prone as he's gotten older. Wear and tear.
