Default I was proud of how they handled the Pat White injury!!!

You hear other teams say our D plays dirty. We all know it isn't true and it showed by the way our team gathered around Pat White in support. They showed nothing but class. I think the comment by Deirdorf was out of line saying it was a helmet to helmet hit. That's bullshit!!! Taylor led with his shoulder and the impact caused their helmets to hit. He made it sound like Ike led with his helmet. Anyway I hope the kid's OK. I hate to see anyone taken off on a stretcher.

Agreed. Our D showed a lot of class when they immediately went and prayed for Pat white.

I can't stand Dierdorf. What caused the helmet to helmet contact was Timmons tripping White up at the last seccond, that made him start to fall forward, head first. Ike was coming in lower with the shoulder. Haven't seen a hit like that since Ryan Clarks in the championship game last year.

They're still going to whine and cry and claim Taylor led with his helmet. I'm glad Dierdorf didn't fuel it and acknowledged it wasn't a dirty hit and that Taylor was just doing his job.

Maybe this is why football is called a contact sport!

Actually, I like what he said...

At that point, he was a running back and thus, it wasn't illegal. The other side of it, is that the QB led with his head as well in th ehit.

actually deirdorf tried to make a point that while the hit was made on the steelers sideline, nobody noticed and the steelers kept on celebrating the hit.

during the slo-mo replay while deirdorf was spewing his garbage, it showed that mike tomlin and the rest of the steelers immediately around him were the FIRST ones to notice that something was wrong, and start waving the trainers and medics over.
