The problem is that willie is coming off a broken leg and now another injury that has kept him out for a while. We can't keep giving him the ball 25-30 times a game and expect him to make it through a lengthy post-season run if we're fortunate enough to be in that position. Maybe mewelde will do just fine in relief, but I really would prefer to see what mendenhall can do.

Miss yes, lose because he isn't there, I doubt it.

yes they are "tough" but...really look at them.

Their QB has a 77.7 rating, 2 tds and 4 picks. Ranked 20.
That's not the same guy we played last year.

We can beat these guys for sure. Just attack their QB, stuff their Run and control the ball. Sounds simple but really, attacking their QB is the key. He isn't the highly rated QB is was last year now that everyone is learning his tendancies.

They are also without their 2 starting guards who are out for the season. So they haven't been nearly as effective at running the football, and as a result, Garrard has been pressured a hell of a lot more than he was last year and hasn't been as effective. If the Steelers stop their running game, they can turn Woodley and Harrison loose and make life miserable for Garrard.

After the Bye Week, Willie, Carey Davis, and Casey will be back, and Keisel will be back a few weeks after.

People need to chill about these injuries, including the media. They're already counting the Steelers out. And will someone tell ESPN that we beat Baltimore without 2/3 of our defensive line, one of which is a pro bowler? Not to mention an All-Pro running back missing. Oh yeah, we were playing with desperation backs in the 2nd half.

If we find a way to go down there and beat Jacksonville, we're 4-1 going into the bye, which is coming at a PERFECT time.

Sometimes its good for the media to start rumors like that.....makes us look like a non-threatning team!
