Default Running back Moore returns to practice for Steelers

Running back Moore returns to practice for Steelers
http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt...s_717033.html#
By John Harris
PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW
Friday, January 7, 2011

Running back Mewelde Moore returned to practice Thursday, as the Steelers concluded their work week. Still not practicing were right tackle Flozell Adams, receiver Hines Ward, safety Troy Polamalu, linebackers James Harrison and James Farrior, cornerback Bryant McFadden and defensive end Aaron Smith. All except Smith, who dressed for practice but didn't participate, are scheduled to practice when players return Sunday. Smith's status for the Jan. 15 playoff game at Heinz Field remains uncertain.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and left guard Chris Kemoeatu switched jerseys at practice. Roethlisberger wore No. 68 and Kemoeatu wore No. 7.

Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey is happy with the direction the running game is headed. "We like the things that we're doing,'' Pouncey said. Told that the majority of running back Rashard Mendenhall's big runs have come on the right side this season, Pouncey said, "We like to keep it balanced. But if it's working, we're going to keep doing it until somebody stops us.''

Ward said he'll watch the playoff games on TV this weekend but not as a fan. "We can't watch it as entertainment. I've been around so long, I can't watch it without critiquing it.'' said Ward, 34, who will be appearing in his 15th playoff game. Ward said the Steelers didn't prepare for any potential playoff opponent this week with good reason. "Preparing for a team we're not playing is a waste of time,'' Ward said. "It's Steelers vs. Steelers (in practice). It's not about the other teams.''

glad to see some of the big guys getting a little rest. Hopefully, they'll come out next week for a good practice and have strong work-outs in the weight room too

Moore returning to the lineup is literally the worst thing that could happen to this offense. I swear to god Arians has a fetish with him and wastes so many unecesary plays trying to get him the ball, and it never works. I was hoping he was out for the season so Arians wouldn't be tempted.

Cruel, but true. I personally am a fan of Memo's, but he has definitely had a bit of an offseason this year. No worries, the guys can't play at an elite level every season-- some off years are allowed. He can come back strong next year, but right now, I think the Mendy/Redman combination is our best bet for the postseason.

I mean I appreciate what he did for us two years ago in Parker's absence but again that was two years ago, he's not the same and between Mendy and Redman I see no reason whatsoever to be in on any offensive play, yet somehow he seems to get like 1/3 of the snaps...Peronsally I think those snaps should be split about 3/4 Mendy and 1/4 Redman and Moore should only get in if somebody's injured, but that's not the Arians way for some reason.

I appreciate 2 and 3 years ago as well, this year not so much. Redman has more upside. I always figured he was Tomlins teachers pet due to playing with the Vikes together, Hopefully being a veteran he will switch gears in the playoffs like so many do.
I have a feeling Hines will this post season.

What irritates me so much about Moore this year is they tried to turn him into an every down back when Mendenhall should have stayed in the game. He is a great third down back but he truly sucked on first and second down. Stupid Arians once again. Mendenhall is the type of back who needs reps to wear the defense down. Arians is still a moron. I hope they don't use Moore like that in the playoffs or we may very well be one and done.

I love Moore as well. And he has been playing better lately, cause he was terible early on. But with that said,,,Boy! Not to Dis Moore but,,I sure would like to see how a FRESH, 235 Lb J-Dwyer would do coming at some of these teams.

Just sayin!

I wonder how that looked. I imagine Ben was swimming in that thing while Kemo was ripping through his like the Incredible Hulk.
