Default Re: Steelers LB Porter 'scoped, out four weeks

Team leader on offense = Hines Ward
Team leader on defense = Joey Porter

Two names we need. Not just because of thier play. But more because of thier desire, personality and leadership.

I'm seeing this shift right now not because they don't desrve it, but they need to just be themselves. My picks Off leader - Ben - cause everyone will be looking at him and may go the way he goes. If he is loose and comfortable then fine. If he looks uptight and looking for help lookout. Def leader - Farrior - cause he is the one on the rise and playing all out. having Porter go injury to injury is a little inconsistent to come in and start shouting at you to "D" up. It will still work, but if Farrior tells you to step it up you will act a little faster cause he has been going sideline to sideline getting passed over for honors for all last year and everyone knows it. So while he is silent in comparison to Porter, when he speaks, it says volumes.

Defensive emotional leader is Joey by far, no doubt. He's the heart and soul of the defense out there. Defensive leader in terms of his position on the field and calling the shots is Farrior. They are both equally important.

Offensive leader. Ben because he's the QB, he's the guy who's got his hand on the ball on every single play. Heart of the offense is Jerome and Hines. Both of whom are 2 of the most respected players on the team period.


Good stuff cleve !!

Is the man who gave us the jutting jaw, the foaming-at-the-mouth tirades and the Josh Miller ear-beatings going Dick Vermeil on us? Could it be that the modern-day Bill Cowher is kinder and gentler entering his 14th season as the Steelers' head coach?
Yes ... No ... Perhaps.

In publicly discussing Joey Porter's knee injury, which appears to have occurred after the linebacker stomped his foot upon winning a pass-rush drill, Cowher defended the Pro Bowl veteran for his passion and love for the game.

That's not to suggest that Cowher didn't have choice words for Porter behind closed doors - "What I say to (the media), is not always what he and I discuss," Cowher said. - but he was supportive Thursday morning.

"Joey hurt his knee playing the game of football," Cowher said. "If something like (the stomping celebration) is what prompted it, it was going to happen anyway. The game of football is a lot more violent than jumping up and down and stomping on the ground."

Porter sustained the injury (loose cartilage that will keep him out a month) during Tuesday afternoon's practice at St. Vincent College. Porter had been beaten in a one-on-one pass-rush drill by free-agent tackle Ulish Booker, prompting the linebacker to challenge Booker again.

"I was working on a new move," Porter said, explaining why Booker had defeated him.

Porter and Booker lined up a second time and Porter blew by the big lineman. The two went at it one more time, and Porter faked outside. He then twisted back inside and easily got by Booker.

Porter celebrated by stomping his feet in a marching motion, then finishing with one final stomp. Moments later, he walked off the field and plopped down on a water cooler. He did not return to practice and underwent surgery the next day.


here's the rest
