I saw him have difficulty tackling and gave up a couple of first downs because of it this season. Polamalu does't have that problem.
Troy most absolutely whiffs - not because of tackling - but because of missed-timing and taking more chances (which he has earned the right to do) why mess with chemistry right now? I don't buy the "we're a different defense with Troy in there" stuff anymore. They learned to win without him already. Sure, we're on a 2 game skid - but it isn't because Troy isn't in there - as a matter of fact - the defense is back to being the main reason why we were still in both of those games. I love Troy - he just hasn't proved to be the same. There is only way he can prove that - and it is coming at a time where I wouldn't mess with the chemistry. Hell - if he comes in and starts wacking the ball from Flacco and intercepting -then fine - I really hope I'm wrong.

I am really amazed that people are considering that the Steelers shouldn't play the "not even 2 seasons ago" Defensive Player of the Year.

Wednesday news, notes

Mike Tomlin shook up his depth chart on Tuesday, and then proceeded to shake things up Wednesday on his offensive line.

With Mike Adams, Willie Colon and Max Starks all sitting out Wednesday, the Steelers moved Maurkice Pouncey to left guard, Ramon Foster to right tackle and Kelvin Beachum to left tackle.

Doug Legursky was at center, while rookie David DeCastro was next up at right guard.

But just because the Steelers made these moves on Wednesday does not mean that will be the starting line Sunday in Baltimore.

In fact, I highly doubt that it will be.

This is a shell game Tomlin is playing with the Ravens, hoping they will take their eye off the ball enough to allow the Steelers to come away with a win.

Chances are, when the Steelers line up Sunday, Starks will be at LT, Colon at LG, Pouncey at C, Foster at RG and Beachum at RT.

But if there's an injury during the game, particularly to Colon, Pouncey could make the move to guard.

And if Beachum is overmatched at RT making his first career start, Foster could move over.

But that is not the plan right now.

@ Ben Roethlisberger did some light throwing Wednesday as he was limited in practice. He's getting better, but I'd be surprised if he plays this weekend.

@ Antonio Brown and Troy Polamalu both looked good Wednesday, a big plus for the Steelers.

I'm really worried with Beachum at RT.
I think the Ravens will repeatedly attack this very weak link.

agreed, but i'm sure the coaching staff is giving him his shot because he's proven something to them. otherwise we'd likely see foster shift over and decastro at RG

which is most likely the adjustment the Steelers will make if Beachum struggles badly.

I would prefer watching Heath run pass patterns instead of staying in to block.
