Default Broncos' Polumbus tasked with big challenge in Steelers' Harrison

Broncos' Polumbus tasked with big challenge in Steelers' Harrison

Tyler Polumbus (76) will have to protect Kyle Orton from a stout Steelers line. (Joe Amon | The Denver Post)

For his first NFL start, Tyler Polumbus gets to take on James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons and the mighty 3-4 Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

Then again, Polumbus just did a good job holding off Terrell Suggs and the Baltimore Ravens so there's evidence he's ready for his next challenge. In Harrison, Polumbus will see the NFL's defending defensive player of the year.

Polumbus, a former standout from Cherry Creek High School and the University of Colorado, is the Broncos' new right tackle after Ryan Harris suffered two dislocated toes on his right foot Sunday.

Harris could be out three weeks, although the Broncos are hopeful he can return earlier.

"He will not play this week," Broncos coach Josh McDaniels said at his Monday press conference.

Polumbus, who the Broncos signed as an undrafted free agent last year, filled in for Harris early in the second quarter and finished the game.

Although, the Broncos suffered protection breakdowns against the Ravens, Polumbus was often matched up against Suggs and did not allow Baltimore's well compensated, pass-rushing outside linebacker to get at quarterback Kyle Orton.

"Tyler went in and did a decent job; hung in there," McDaniels said. "Tyler's been in this system as long as anybody else has this year. He familiar with what he's doing. We're always getting plenty of reps in practice. He handled himself well in the preseason and we'll expect him to go in there and play well."

Polumbus already called Harrison "an old man who could not sack a bag of groceries." I wonder how James will respond to that comment?

He's a right tackle.. wouldn't James Harrison be matched up against Ryan Clady, the left tackle? and Lamarr Woodley on Polumbus?

Yeah, more lousy reporting by some scrub journalist. For the most part, Woodley is gonna be over the RT in passing downs and even on the run game. Harrison will be over Clady.

I am gonna be interested to see how Ben Hamilton is able to handle Keisel. This is an athletic, but not overly massive Bronco's O line that can get pushed around by a big NT like Hampton and some 300lb ends.

Plus the Ratbirds helped us out a little in providing some good tape for seeking out the weaknesses in their protection schemes.

Alright, that's alot less insane. You should try to get Harrison's number so you can tell him how gay his hybrid car. (much like some players did impersonating keenan mccardell and calling greg lloyd)
