Default Sweed gets another shot this weekend

www.timesonline.com/sports/spo...d-on-sweed.html

It didn’t take long for coach Mike Tomlin to give Limas Sweed a second chance.

Sweed, a wide receiver who didn’t suit up in last week’s win over San Diego, will be in uniform this Sunday when the Steelers play in Detroit.

“I’m ready to get back in the mix and have some fun,” Sweed said after Thursday’s practice.

Sweed, a second-round pick last year, lost his spot as the No. 4 wideout after dropping what would have been a 34-yard touchdown pass in a Sept. 27 loss in Cincinnati.

Infuriated by Sweed’s tendency to drop passes, Tomlin made him practice with the scout team last week.

Shaun McDonald dressed as the fourth receiver in the win over the Chargers. McDonald, who played the past two years with the Lions, will not play Sunday.

This has to be his final chance to impress. If the ball comes his way and is catch able he better have glue fingers or his season is over.

This may be Sweed's last chance. He better prove that he's worth keeping around.

By my calculations this is his third chance to be a professional football wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers. I hope he steps up!

Note to Limas Sweed: Dropping easy touchdown passes isn't fun.

I'm really dreading this.

Mendy redeemed himself Sunday after fudging up. Can we see a repeat with our WR?

Honestly, Limas, I don't care whether you have fun. Be nervous as hell and hate every second of it, for all I care, if that's what it takes to catch the damn ball.
