Porter did drop into coverage alot more than Ive ever seen. He actually went down field with Heap for about 20 yards, had great coverage but got all twisted up when the ball was coming, fortunately Heap didnt make the catch. I think Porter is ok, he certainly isn't what he was 3 years ago, but he's a very solid OLB and our best leader, sometimes the later can be more important !

Harrison does need to be on the field more, I agree. But Porter came up huge just a week ago against Cinci. And Ogden does well against everybody that he plays.

joey porter is a linebacker! not a defensive end like freeney. porter had his work cut out for him.

i remember greg lloyd getting handled in the superbowl by larry allen i believe. when you ask a lb to take on a house of an o-lineman all game youre not gonna put up great defensive numbers. one thing porter has going for him is hes one of cowhers favorite players and he brings much needed intensity. yes at a high price, but that can be worked out.

He did? How many tackles did Joey have in that game?

I'll give you a hint, its a nonnegative integer less than 1.

The problem is, if u bench joey, or release him after this year..we have ZERO experienced depth. Harrison and Haggans are the starters, and that leaves Frazier as the key backup. There fore you are now going out and having to draft a couple LB's in 2006, and also look to FA for a good 2nd tier LB to provide experienced depth. LB's are too important in our defense to not have good depth.

I'm not gonna talk up Joey, but I did see some holding from Ogden that coulda been minor holds calls worth calling. Bleh!

Joey is one of the captains on the team. I would like to see somebody tell him he is washed up to his face. So what he doesn't have 10 sacks already. He plays an intrical part of how other teams gameplan and run their offense. Come on guys, everyone knows he is one of the baddest, strongest and quickest OLB's in the game right now.

I dunno about Joey. Do you go with the experianced vet or the kid with alot of potential (Harrison)? I dunno, I think Harrison has too much potential to lose him in FA so lets see what the kids got.

Maybe Cowher should tell Joey hes thinkin about starting someone else.
That should get him going.....and he will play a bit harder.
