Linebacker Joey Porter, who leads the Steelers with seven sacks, did not make the Pro Bowl for the first time in the past three years. He made three of the past four Pro Bowls.

"I didn't have the year I felt I could have," Porter said. "But, at the same time, it just didn't happen for me. It didn't bother me that much. I think a lot of outside linebackers played good this year, and lot of guys had better records. The guys who made it deserved it."


Seriously, I am glad to hear Joey admit that he did not play to his previous level this season, just as I am glad to hear Porter and other Steelers state they have only themselves to blame for what happened this year. They could have taken a page from Cincinnati's book and claim without Ben's injuries they surely would have won it all but that is not what I have been reading.

Instead, this self-critical attitude hopefully will result in a focused offseason and big bounce back in 2007.
Remember back to last season, Porter was having a mediocre season. Then when we went on a run, he was on a run, he was untouchable. Its time to turn it up a notch

All I can say is I know every single one of you praised Joey last year on Jan. 14th in the last quarter of the game, where he came up with two big consecutive sacks on Manning to seal it. Face it, whether you like Porter or not, agree with what he says or not, he is a hell of a player.

And what is this talk that his play is on the downslope? Are you kidding me? Don't sit back in your computer chair eating your chips after your 8hr day at the office and tell an NFL player who has trained and prepared his whole life for football that his play is on the downslope...are you honestly serious? Just because he isn't coming up with huge sacks every other game doesn't mean his play is any worse...he is a good player, and he can come up big in the big game when it matters.


Hopefully Joey can prove me right tomorrow.

Amen brother, Amen! Like I mentioned in the Troy thread, stats arent everything anyway.
