Default Polamalu should sit at least one more week

Polamalu should sit at least one more week

December 20th, 2010

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin did not tip his hand today regarding injured strong safety Troy Polamalu.

But there is no way the five-time Pro Bowler should play Thursday night against the Carolina Panthers.

Make that the 2-12 Carolina Panthers.

The Steelers have already clinched a playoff berth, and if they canít beat a run-heavy team that will start a rookie quarterback at Heinz Field shame on them.

They donít deserve to win the AFC North and are not a legitimate Super Bowl contender.

Seriously, Santa Claus himself couldnít have delivered a better present to the Steelers than the Panthers.

Yes, they are coming off their second win of the season but they have to beat the Steelers on the road.

And they sure as heck arenít going to approach the 177 yards they churned out last Sunday in a 19-12 win against the Arizona Cardinals.

Make that the hapless Arizona Cardinals.

The Steelers will force Jimmy Clausen to beat them, and the defense will still be a little chippy after not playing one of its better games in a 22-17 loss to the New York Jets.

They don't need Polamalu Thursday night.

Correction: they shouldn't need Polamalu to beat an NFL bottom-feeder that is last in the league in passing offense.

As much as Polamalu may want to play, it is better to sit him for at least one more game -- and have him ready to go if the Steelers need to beat the Browns on Jan. 2 to win the AFC North.

I wold let him get his rest here and if we need him against the Browns to clinch the division then play him there.

It would be gross misconduct and professional stupidity to allow Troy to play at all in the next two games.

I agree he should sit as well as Big Ben if we get the game in hand. This time of year is tough on the body and any rest for the walking wounded should be taken advantage of. Leftwich can handle the mop up time in the next two games. Give Redman more carries and give Mendy some time to get super strong to the run in the playoffs.
