Re: Is this Porters last year w/ the Steelers
And keep this in mind too.. 2 years ago when he was shot, and came back to play, he didnt have the greatest season stat wise but he was still a force and drew alot of double teams to help free up Haggans & Gildon.
I'd like to see him in double digit sacks again, sure..but he makes alot of pressures, batted down passes, tackles in the backfield, etc...so even though u may not see him lighting up the stat charts every week.. know that he's there and if it werent for him, our defensive stats would be somewhat less spectacular than they are now.
Dont get me wrong, Im not saying he doesnt need to step up and he isnt the heart and soul of the team..but he is a huge part of it, and combined w/ players like Jerome, Hines, Ben, etc.. He's someone I'd just assume not be without anytime soon. :)
