Default Hampton out with a groin & more

http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_589429.html

• Casey Hampton left Sunday's game with a groin injury, and coach Mike Tomlin said after the Steelers' 15-6 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that the veteran nose tackle could miss some time because of it. Tomlin said the Steelers will know more about Hampton after evaluating him today.

• Bryant McFadden started in place of Deshea Townsend (heel contusion) for the second consecutive week at cornerback, and Travis Kirschke started for Brett Keisel (calf strain) at right defensive end. McFadden picked off his second pass of the season in the second quarter and it led to a 53-yard Jeff Reed field goal. He also recovered a fumble in the first half. Kirschke had a team-high seven tackles, along with James Farrior. He also was credited with half a sack.

• The Steelers weren't happy about the call that led to an Eagles' safety in the fourth quarter. Officials awarded the Eagles two points after they ruled that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, under a heavy rush in the end zone, threw a pass where he didn't have an eligible receiver. The Steelers argued that a safety shouldn't have been called because running back Mewelde Moore was in the area.

• A day after the Steelers signed rookie linebacker Patrick Bailey from the practice squad to their 53-man roster, the undrafted free agent dressed for his first NFL game. Also on the inactive list were wide receiver Limas Sweed, offensive tackles Trai Essex and Tony Hills, outside linebacker Bruce Davis and Dennis Dixon (third quarterback).

I am just happy ben is still upright and in one piece. He will not be able to endure the same beating he received today week in and week out the rat birds are up next and with the way the O line played today this isn't a good thing.

Is now a good time to point out that Tomlin did nothing to address the Dline depth after he said that was a concern during the offseason?

Only when the D underperforms, then there will be multiple threads I'm sure.

They tried to tell him not to hide food in his pants on gameday.

We will be fine, Hoke is good and we are ok for Dline depth. Not to mention our Def played outstanding all game, even after Hampton left in the third.

they weren't okay at depth per their coach and nothing has changed, so why are they ok now?

So, if Big Ben doesnt make it through this season who IS gonna win our AFC North tittle?
The Ravens?


I hate to say it, but it is just a matter of time til Ben goes down and doesnt get up... I cant believe that he made it through the Eagles game...
