Default Sylvester

I was traveling and didn't get to see much of the game, did Stevenson Sylvester play any in relief of Farrior/Foote or did they play the whole game? I'm assuming he didn't take the world by storm or anything cause I haven't read anything about him but did he mess up bad or anything or was he just quiet?

He had a holding penalty on a Steelers punt return and 2 tackles

Back-ups got some reps in garbage time (although Tomlin decided to keep Ben in the entire game and some of the Titans were quoted as being less than pleased by the deep bomb to Wallace late up 31-17)

Maybe Sylvester gets some time next week, although if Worlds returns that leaves less reps for a second string ILB

He also missed to cover their onside kick, which eventually they recovered.

Sylvester will be fine, he'll get some playing time the next couple of games if Worilds & Harrison are still out. He'll eventually be playing a little bit more & developing into a reliable backup as the season goes by and our vets need some rest. This may be his chance to prove he's worth the roster spot.

Also saw Christopher Carter on the field. No tackles or passes defended.

Maybe they should have thought of that 3 years ago when they stomped on the towell.

I thought it was great that They went deep and put the game out of reach with the TD to Wallace, shows me something going forward, maybe they won't sit on a damn lead.
As for Sly, I didn't see him much on the field, which makes me wonder, for all his speed and ability, is he really getting this D ?

Sly will be fine, he just needs some experience under his belt. As for the bomb to Wallace. Really? Until the day comes that Hines wipes his ass on a Titans jersey, I could care less about their feelings.

Word...

Maybe they should have tried to stop it? Oh wait, they couldn't... My bad, sorry they couldn't do their job...

The bomb near the end of the game was nothing personal ... the Steelers just needed the Points For stat when it's playoff time

He gets taken out of plays way to easily. He is way to east to block. He seems to always be in the right place at the right time but he gets taken out if the play way to easily
