    Joey Porter unusually silent so far this week

    Arizona outside linebacker Joey Porter has been quiet this week.
    But, as Porter's coach pointed out Wednesday, it's early.

    "I'm sure as we move through the week, the chatter will pick up," Cardinals coach and former Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said. "Joey's a fiery, emotional player."

    The Steelers are well aware of that.

    Porter chattered before and during games while playing in Pittsburgh from 1999-2006. And he made as much of a name for himself calling out opponents as he did tormenting enemy quarterbacks while with the Steelers.

    Porter, now 34, will play Sunday against his original team for the second time since the Steelers released him. Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward, for one, isn't expecting to encounter a more mellow Porter in Arizona.

    "I'm sure he's going to try to pick up on some of the younger guys and get in their head," Ward said with a laugh. "He's not going to attack me, because what Joey says I just laugh at him."

    Honestly, I don't expect much to come from him. I think he enjoyed his career in Pittsburgh too much to start talking trash the way he did when he was in Pittsburgh. There will probably be a little jibber jabber, but I'm sure it'll all be harmless.

    They won 1 game, there's not much to talk about.

    I have to admit, I miss the days of Joey's trash talking. This is the first time the Steelers have not had a trash talking beast in decades. He always kept things interesting with his comments. Especially with big games like the Patriots, Ravens, AFC North Rivals, etc.

    I will always be a Joey Porter fan.....But when he was released I did think it was the right move for Tomlin.......We all saw glimpses of the type of player Harrison was in limited time and Porter making 5 million heading into 2007 it was time......

    Joey Porter was huge in the Steelers reaching Super Bowl XL and I will always be grateful for that......

    As much as I hate to admit it, Joey wouldn't have been able to survive in a Tomlin coached team. His style of play was fine but his trash talking and motivational tactics weren't what Tomlin is about.

    I'll never forget the sacks against Peyton Manning in the AFC Championship Game, or watching him on the field in pregame warmups out there jawing with the opponent.

    Lots of love for Porter.... He talked the talk and walked the walk when he was a Steeler.
