Someone needs to call Ron Bartell up or put a waiver claim in. Whatever it takes. We need someone cause Brown has shown nothing. If Allen can't go we're in big trouble. ESPN reporting Dez wants to play.

I'm with you on the injury excuse, but seriously - all O-line injuries aside since 07 season, WHAT THE EFF!?!? Someone on this team or coaching staff has to be bringing some awful Karma to the table.

This is where Tomlin's in house fixes are hurting this team. The Steelers needed a CB to replace Gay when he left and instead of trading or drafting a CB the Steelers decided to ignore the need. I realize the offensive line took center stage but the CB issue should have been aggressively addressed.

Ike Taylor was playing at a Pro Bowl level. Keenan Lewis was also. We did address corner. That's why you see guys such as Lewis, Brown, Allen and now Victorian out there.

I don't know. This could turn ugly.

2011 all over again.. I mean, are you fucking kidding me with the injuries again? This season is turning into a mirror image of last season and will likely end in Denver again.. If we make it there this time.

Are you absolutely SURE the Steelers don't need to look at revising their offseason workout program at all?

Just this season alone, we lost games due to:

* Missing QB
* Missing backup QB
* Missing 3 of 5 starters on Oline
* Missing 1st, 2nd, 3rd round picks
* Missing 3 of 4 CBs in the secondary
* Missing Polamalu (the 2008 version, not the oft-injured 2010 - 2012 version)

* Missing Woodley
* Kinda having James Harrison back
* Most of Dline on shakey knees
* Can't keep any RB healthy for more than 2 weeks at a time

The list is long and keeps growing...
Woodley is horribly conditioned. Even his conditioning coach spoke out about he needs to work on his hamstrings.

Woodley is gonna replace Casey Hampton next season, that's the plan.

Another guy that got paid and got fat, he's gotta be over 300lbs the fat fuck.

I think Woodley needs to do something about this:

Evidently-- he injures that thing every season around this time. He is getting paid way too much money to only be around for 5 games a season.

Pouncey's annual twisted ankle, and Colon's yearly visit to IR are becoming pretty repetitive as well.

Maybe Tomlin needs to crank up the heat for next year's OTAs and camp? The "camp cupcake" thing is NOT working. These guys are WELL-PAID professionals-- nobody should be "playing their way back to health".
