That's gonna hurt bad...Hartings is one of the best centers in the league....Plus I love him being from Penn State.

I don't think he's officially retired yet. And I don't know what's up with Koopa. Hehe...

Guess this became official today, according to the Post Gazette. Assume it means Chukky will be the starter?

Steelers' Hartings to retire
Thursday, February 01, 2007

By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- Pro-Bowl center Jeff Hartings has told his Steelers' teammates that he is retiring.

Hartings, who succeeded Dermontti Dawson at a position that has been the team's most stable and successful for the past four decades, told his fellow offensive linemen shortly after the season ended that he will not be back.

"He's done. He told all of us," said offensive tackle Max Starks.

Hartings ends an 11-year playing career with two teams at two different positions. He began as a guard after the Detroit Lions drafted him in the first round from Penn State in 1996. He switched to center, a position he had never played, when he signed with the Steelers in 2001 as an unrestricted free agent.

Dawson was forced into retirement after the 2000 season because of lingering hamstring muscle injuries. Hartings moved in and started all but six games over the past six seasons at center, despite chronic problems and soreness with his knees because of a loss of cartilage.

Hartings made two Pro Bowls as a center after the 2004 and 2005 seasons

Good luck Jeff - arguably the best FA pickup (after Donnell Woolford - not!) of the Cowher era

I cannot imagine the pain Hartings (with cartliage gone in his knees) and other pros go through to get out there with chronic injuries - how they play at the level they do amazes me.
