Default I didn't realize until tonight how much this team misses Porter...

I know, gone is gone. And he's lost a step, yadda yadda yadda. But that fire. Not that we don't play with emotion, but man, this team needs that EXTRA fire that Joey gave us.

When we lost Cowher, we lost our executive leader, and Tomlin has done a good job replacing him. But when we lost Porter we lost our emotional and spiritual leader, and I really don't think anyone has replaced him, even a little bit.

With the Fins rebuilding next year, he might be expendable; it wouldn't be such a bad idea to pick him up again. Linebackers have a way of hanging in there longer than you might think (Seau).

I loved Peezy and appreciate all that he gave to the team, but I have no regrets about him leaving. Silverback has done a helluva job in his first year as Joey's replacement. I still believe Farrior, Hines and Ben fire this team up in their own ways but just aren't as obvious as Peezy was.

Joey put a smile on my face with his "I know you love me" after he picked off Ben. But I'll take Harrison's playmaking anyday.

I thought we looked fired up for the first couple of minutes, but our inept offensive penalties/decisions sucked it all away.

Its a good thing the Dolphins can't catch the ball or we would have been in trouble

I liked Porter very much but I don't think we have missed him at all...True he could have gotten the defense fired up at times this year but he wouldn't have helped Bruce Arians being totally clueless at times this year and Joey wouldn't have helped the Oline...lol

Give credit where credit is due: Even as the opponent, JOEY was the ONLY person firing the STEELER'S DEFENSE UP.

I like Porter, but I don't miss him terribly. Just look at what James Harrison is doing. And if you're worried about emotion, don't. Kansas Head Coach Mangino summed it up best.

"If you rely on emotion, it lasts until about two plays after the opening kickoff and then you're pooped," he said. "It's about blocking, tackling, running, throwing, playing sound fundamental football.".

That is what the Steelers need to do. So, do I miss Porters fire? Not really, but it was fun having a Spokesman with an attitude from hell when you needed one.

this team does not need or miss porter's mouth and lack of effort. why pick up a broken down LB who does nothing but babble and disappear on the field? porter was not a leader. he was a mouth, plain and simple. lambert was a leader. lloyd was a leader.

funny how the defense improved when porter was let go. i miss porter about as much as i miss his twin(gildon).
