I think Gradkowski gets more protection from the refs than BRoeth.

That wasn't our 1st round pick laying injured on the ground there was it?

So, not being in the local market I'm kind of
out of the loop, but is it safe to assume that no one is talking about "young money" this year?

Obviously disturbing to hear Jarvis in hospital for chest injury, but there’s been NO characterization or specifics. We’ll see. #Steelers


Can we agree this is awful news?

2013 is going to go down as a very cursed year.

if the team turns on coach haley, then can we include the fire from what would be an epic meltdown?

I s'pose. I can't remember a year that I have looked forward to less than this one. I am usually pretty optimistic about the "Steeler way" winning out, but I believe Tomlin has lost that.

This team looks dreadful, and that is with their defense healthy. The O line, which is young, has shown no flashes of brilliance. For all of the accolades heaped on Pouncey - he sure has his own issues pass blocking. The 2 young Tackles take turns getting beat. I have hope with them for the future, but I think this season they take their lumps. I'm hoping that they may emerge as a unit late in the year.

They have no running back and no tight end. They have receivers and Ben, but no consistent time for them to run progressions.

The D needs playmakers. Cortez Allen may be one that can catch a pass. Troy can if he's healthy. They needed the rookie linebacker to be that as well, so we'll see how badly he is injured. Perhaps Woodley can rebound and give us a playmaker at each of the three levels of the secondary.
