Default Should Troy sit out the rest of the season?

I think he should. It doesnít look like the Steelers will make the playoffs and I think itíd be best to just rest him so he doesnít set himself back. The Steelers could get some more looks at Mundy at SS perhaps. At least get him some more experience.

No.

With that logic, we should sit Ben and let Dixon get some more experience, because Ben is probably going to get hurt again next year.

No. Have you even looked at the wildcard picture and the remaining schedules of each team? Steelers aren't done yet. You people give up too easily. It ain't over till we're mathematically eliminated.

But for us to have any chance to win out and finish 10-6 we NEED troy.

We're not mathematically eliminated from the playoff picture, so I would say no.

OH I looked at each schedule, but since this is such a weird season for them, not getting the bounces and good calls against in their favor I just donít see them getting any breaks to reach the playoffs. I just donít want Troy to risk further injury by rushing back when we can have him healthy for next year. Him rushing back and doing further damage isnít worth it in the long run. I think the only tough team the Jags play are the Colts so even if they lose that game theyíll probably still get the final spot anyway.

I think the question is being answered for us.

He's too hurt to play. We may not see him the rest of the year anyway.

What are you talking about logic.Ben isn't injured. The knee injury that Troy has will probably require surgery during the off season.I'm sure he'll play after this week but he's taking a risk. Your logic doesn't hold water either.

DUH>>>>>>>>>>>>>It wasn't meant to be logical. And neither is keeping a player off the field that is ready to play, when the season isn't over yet.
