It probably is before the time of most posters, but the injuries remind me of when the 1980 team broke down

That season featured the disappearance of the pass rush and lots of injuries on an aging team

You know, this is shaping up to be one of those silver lining sort of seasons. We're being forced to look at our rookies and 2nd-year guys in sharp detail. If we can do that and still make the playoffs, all will be good. Better than good, really.

Looks like Harrison is out until the Sunday night game against Baltimore - since I assumed pre-season the Steelers woudl lose the New England game set for the previous week I would sit him until November 6

There is a chance that Harrison could be back in three weeks. As AFC West blogger Bill Williamson pointed out, Raiders running back Darren McFadden missed 18 days of practice in this year's training camp when he fractured an orbital bone. And McFadden hasn't shown any long-term effects.

If this timetable is right for Harrison, the Steelers would have him back when they play the New England Patriots and Tom Brady on Oct. 30.

According to ESPN.com injury expert Stephania Bell, a study showed the average time to return from this type of injury to be 25 days, although there are many variables. Bell said the Steelers could expect Harrison to be out at least four weeks.

Getting old sucks, but having seen the 70s Steelers live rather than on NFL Films is one benefit of being a codger

Harrison is and has been the motor of the defense for some years... His loss is huge, compounded with the O problems
