"We have starters and starters-in-waiting..." -Coach Mike Tomlin.

Sorry if you've already seen or heard this one. I still haven't watched the Tuesday press conference and just now got around to reading my Steelers Digest. This was his comment after the Jags game (crediting our ...Starters-in-wait) and I thought it was a great quote.

Give to Mike Tomlin to term his men like that.

It does sound a lot better than benchwarmers, doesn't it?

Its like Limas Sweed said. You keep working and wait for your opportunity.

Sweed is dressing and if the Steelers put it away in the 3rd quarter, I bet Limas gets some playing time and an opportunity.

Based on comments from Coach Tomlin, Limas could see some playing time this Sunday. I like the fact that a lot of players are getting a chance to show they can do and in this league depth is a key to making it deep in the playoffs and having a winning season.
