I dont like our chances with Carter starting. Its not because of his play its just that his height creates a serious mismatch. Brady is going to be going over the top to Moss a lot. Even if you swapped the safeties they are going over the top to Stallworth. Smith is going to have to play a very smart game. I hope Townsend is calling out the coverages.

If Carter's height becomes a problem, I can see them putting McFadden in at saftey OR putting McFadden in at corner and shifting Townsend over to saftey.

This might sound crazy, but i like Carters chances better in the pass coverage over Troy who has over played so many balls this year!
I was thinking along the same lines. I haven't seen much out of Troy this year so this news isn't a BIG disappointment to me.

Apparently he injured it when someone rolled into him in practice and it swelled up - at least the swelling was not from regular running so who knows if he plays.


Safety Troy Polamalu, who developed swelling in his injured knee when a teammate rolled into him during Wednesday's practice, will have a run test this morning to see if he can practice and play in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

Even if Polamalu can't practice today, he will be tested again tomorrow and a game-time decision will be made on his condition.

Polamalu, a three-time Pro Bowl safety, has a sprain of the medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee -- the same type of injury that sidelined receiver Hines Ward for three games earlier this season.

Polamalu has not played in the past two games. He was doing fine and was scheduled to return against the Patriots until his injury was aggravated two days ago, causing swelling.

If Ward took 3 weeks to recover I say sit Troy Sunday to heal him up. Steelers need to win 3 of 4 to guarantee the #3 seed (big difference playing Jax or Browns/Titans in round #1) and it does not matter which 3.

I agree, Dan. If Troy's not 100%, sit him - better safe than sorry. I think Carter has played very well in his stead and will have his game on against the Pats as he has the past several weeks.

The other thing is there are many people who would tell you the defense has actually been MORE effective without Troy. Whatever Tomlin and LeBeau have done with the d this year, it has taken something out of Troy's game. Let him sit and get healthy. I myself, am more concerened about Santonio, and whether our line can buck-up and play.

Update. Doesn't look too good that Troy will play against the Pats.

Steelers' Polamalu unlikely to play Sunday
Friday, December 07, 2007
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Safety Troy Polamalu, who developed swelling in his injured knee when a teammate rolled into him during Wednesday's practice, did not practice today and likely will not play in Sunday's game against the New England Patriots.

Polamalu was given a run test this morning to determine if he would be able to practice, but there was no change in his condition and it appears he will be unable to play against the Patriots.

Polamalu, a three-time Pro Bowl safety, has a sprain of the medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee --- the same type of injury that sidelined receiver Hines Ward for three games earlier this season.

Polamalu has not played in the past two games. He was doing fine and was scheduled to return against the Patriots until his injury was aggravated two days ago, causing swelling.

Meantime, outside linebacker James Harrison missed practice for personal reasons, but he is expected to rejoin the team tomorrow and play against the Patriots.
