Default More injuries; thin in the secondary

Jeezus H. Christ... did anyone leave Cleveland healthy?

Defensive back Madison to re-sign with Steelers

Monday, January 02, 2012
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Perhaps desperate for defensive backs, the Steelers will turn to one of their former cornerbacks and special teams aces to try to prop up a secondary that has been hit by a rash of injuries and perhaps the absence of safety Ryan Clark.
Although he has not yet signed a contract, Anthony Madison is on his way to Pittsburgh to likely rejoin his former teammates in time for their playoff game at Denver on Sunday. He announced today on his web page he will re-sign with the team.
Madison, 30, broke in with the Steelers in 2006 and has been off and on with them ever since.
The Steelers lost two cornerbacks to injuries in Cleveland: Keenan Lewis with a hamstring and rookie Cortez Allen to a separated shoulder.
They will decide soon whether starting free safety Ryan Clark will risk playing in the high altitude Denver, where his sickle cell trait caused a violent reaction in 2007 that required emergency surgery and nearly killed him.
The Steelers placed rookie cornerback Curtis Brown on injured reserve Dec. 23.
The new injuries left them with only three healthy cornerbacks in Cleveland -- starters Ike Taylor and William Gay, and veteran Bryant McFadden. Their other defensive backs include safeties Ryan Mundy and Will Allen.

We'll be ok thin at corner against Tebow, but we'll need Lewis against the Ravens or Pats.

I know this sounds extreme, but we won't beat New England without Lewis. The only way we could is if Cortez Allen steps up big like Lewis, but without that good Nickle play we have been getting, we can't beat a passing team. Is it a minor pull or is he out for all remaining games? I think this might be the final blow to this team, if we don't have to play the pats we might get away with, but without a nickle corner playing at top notch we won't be able to shut down Brady nor whichever top QB we would face in the SB. All season we have had huge, key injuries that have broke our back, but being this injured in the playoffs will definetly cost us.

Lewis will we have 2 weeks to heal if we defeat the Broncos. Don't necessarily need great corners for the game. This game is for Ziggy Hood and Cameron Heyward to shine.

That's the worst Steelers playoff injury situation I can remember. I'm glad we go to Denver first.

The worst I can remember is when we lost both Rranco and Rocky in the 1976 season playoffs going into a game with the Raiders .

not to side track the thread, but I've always been told that was the best Steelers team of the 70's.

We are going to be a bit short at secondary. That seems a shame because our secondary has been so good this year and might be the one position this team hasn't had injury problems at this year.

EVERYONE CALM DOWN, We got this people... we got this. I guarantee we will beat Denver. I can't beleive there are people that are actually nervous about this game, Denver shouldn't even be in the play offs, if they were in a decent division they wouldn't be in the playoffs, We went 12-4 this year and mende just did us a favor by injuring him self so we can have a real running back like redman start. We all are set for another superbowl run take my word for it, I won the superbowl in madden 12, TWICE. Big ben threw for over 7,000 yards. trust me I know whats up.

but can't you win any game in Madden if you have a good running game? that's the way it use to be. Denver does have a good running game.
