Default WR Sweed leads list of Steelers' inactives

WR Sweed leads list of Steelers' inactives
http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...s_658557.html#

TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Saturday, December 19, 2009

Steelers second-year WR Limas Sweed, who did not practice all week because of illness, has been ruled out for this weekend's game against Green Bay at Heinz Field.

S Troy Polamalu (knee) and G Chris Kemoeatu (wrist) were ruled out against the Packers earlier in the week.

Tyrone Carter will make his fifth consecutive start in place of Polamalu, who hasn't played since Nov. 15 against Cincinnati. Rookie Ramon Foster will start for Kemoeatu for the second time this season.

According to ESPN.com, more than a dozen Steelers are in contention to earn a spot in the Jan. 31 Pro Bowl at Dolphin Stadium in South Florida based on the latest fan voting. They are: Polamalu (first) 347,418 votes; OLB James Harrison ( first) 225,186 votes; ILB James Farrior (second) 135,311 votes; DT Casey Hampton (second) 215,587 votes; Kemoeatu (second) 156,070 votes; C Justin Hartwig ( second) 141,907 votes; P Daniel Sepulveda (second) 78,094 votes; S Ryan Clark ( third) 71,132 votes; QB Ben Roethlisberger (third) 459,469 votes; TE Heath Miller (third) 208,600 votes; FB Carey Davis (fourth) 70,230 votes; K Jeff Reed (fourth) 63,538 votes; CB Ike Taylor (fifth) 100,066 votes; DE Brett Keisel (fifth) 99,994 votes; KR Stefan Logan (fifth) 44,231 votes. Voting ends Dec. 21, and the AFC and NFL teams will be announced Dec. 29. The votes from fans, players and coaches each count for one-third in determining the rosters.

DIGITS

Dec. 6, 1970 Green Bay's last win in Pittsburgh.

Pretty solid breakdown of the most retarded fans....Why is Ike Taylor or Carey Davis even on that list? And Logan has been an improvement for us...but really???

... and here I thought this was supposed to be Sweed's big chance to step up.

I really don't understand how Polamalu is in first place. The guy's awesome, but come on, he's hardly played this year. Farrior is also kind of puzzling.

I mean, I'm not stupid, so it's not a mystery WHY, but really, fat, drunk, and blatantly stuffing the ballot box is no way to go through life, son.

I think it's because of the head and shoulders commercials.

That's to bad I really wanted to see Sweed on the field not because I am sold that he is a good player but because I am more convinced he is not and want to see if we should keep or cut him. Point being if he can play lets see it in then next 3 games and if he can't cut him loose.

As for the pro bowl who cares??? It is a joke of a game anyway why should the voting be any different. Love how that game is going to be on before the Superbowl...Godel is an idiot and his ploy reeks of something Jerry Jones would do.

Preacher...Farrior has missed tackles in more than one game and late in coverage in others. I like the guy but his play this year is not up to par, and has lead to many wondering if his done for.

Glace...Yep Logan is decent for us but not a Josh Cribbs. He is 5th so he's not a real threat to make it, but you never know.

I'll be willing to guess that Limas Sweed will be to Mike Tomlin as Mike Vrabel was to Bill Cowher. Sweed will be dumped, picked up by another team, and become amazing.

I don't want this to happen, but, by the looks of it....
