...we need to consider the massive amount of injuries going on, both before this game and during it.


Polamalu - pro bowl S
Woodley - probowl LB
Mundy - meaning they were on 3rd string to start game
Will Allen - meaning they had to go to FOURTH STRINGER at S
Mendenhall - only RB worth crap, done for the year
DeCastro - 1st round pick who was supposed to dominate
Pouncy - probowl center and team leader
Redman - back up RB, already missing our starter.
Foster - back up OG, already replacing DeCastro
Gilbert - starting RT

Am I missing some? Feels like I am. It's just not our year, fellas. Is there something this team is doing - or not doing - to create so many injuries? Why does it feel like we have so much more injuries than other teams, on average. It is REALLY bad this year. And, I WILL NOT spend another season seeing Troy on the sidelines in civie clothes - as they show him like 10 times a game and I am sick of it. If he is still on this team, and hurt, next season, I literally may not watch the games anymore.

After this post I decided to jump off the Tallahatchie Bridge. Not our year okay must not be the Packers year either and etc. It's still early. Anyhow sad for anyone if you have to live and breath Steeler football just being a fan. Also half these prime time games are fixed to a point and predict a Steeler win on prime time next week.

I jumped into the water but Arron Rodges jump in after me to save me and he must be my guarding angel Clarence.

No, I'm tired of the injuries being an excuse. Injuries didn't make Keenan Lewis drop that interception. Injuries didn't make Ike Taylor play like crap. Injuries didn't make Ben throw that pass to AB that was intercepted (they got greedy to quickly). If anyone of those things doesn't happen, we probably win this game.

Done for the year? I haven't seen any information on ESPN, on this site on another Steelers site I'm not allowed to mention or on Ed Bouchette's twitter. Source?

Are you sure? Troy being on the field makes Ike much better - as he is less isolated and might have help from a streaking Polamalu coming across the field. Troy makes up for Lewis dropping the ball, as TP would catch a few if he was out there. With Troy, Woodley on the field, guess what? Ben doesn't have to score as much, or throw as much, in general. It's a chain link fence - everything is connected and impacts each other. If you don't think us being down to our FOURTH STRING at OT, running back and safety, I don't know what to tell you.

I thought some might take issue with this. I heard it's an Achilles, and last I knew, and Achilles Tendon injury is usually season-ending. Can an AT be just a strain or pull? I think that's possible but not likely. If it's just strained, then he could be back. If there is any kind of tear or rupture, he is toast.

Yea, games are fixed, but not all. Packers are off kilter, and yes, it's a matter of getting hot as December draws in, if you are in striking distance, i.e. the last two Giants Super Bowl wins, and Packers 2 years ago. Timing is everything. So the Packers are still in it, as of now. But do the Packers have this level of injuries? Are they down to their fourth string in 3 difference units?

Woodley - probowl LB

Depends on the injury. If it's a tear, then he's done for the year. There are lesser injuries of the achilles though.

I looked around, other degrees of AT injuries are possible, but not typical. Once you saying AT, you are usually talking about bad news.

There likely won't be any real updates of any significance until Tomlin's presser next Tuesday. No mention of anything with Mendenhall other than achilles. If they even thought it was torn he wouldn't have been on the sideline with his pads on for most of the game.

It's not uncommon for other injuries to happen when a player gets back, especially in a hurry and goes full bore.

Yup, very true. I didn't see him how he left the field after he was hurt. If it was a tear, he'd be hobbling real bad. I didn't even know he was hurt until after a while of not seeing him in the game.

Between seeing Polamalu for the 100th time in civies on the sideline, and yet ANOTHER O lineman go down, I was ready to throw up.

Somebody needs to put a Valium in this dudes Ice cream! There would be serious rumors around the web now if Mendy was done for the year. Relax! Go run one off and order Domino's. In fact use your ice cream glove to play stranger before you order Domino's.
