    News and notes:- Arians wants to get Hines his 10 more catches

    Tuesday, December 06, 2011
    Tuesday news and notes

    A bevy of Steelers did not practice today. In fact, the Steelers really didn't practice. It was more of a glorified walkthrough using a Nerf ball instead of a normal one for most of the session.

    But two players who did not work were linebacker LaMarr Woodley and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

    The bet here is that neither will play Thursday against Cleveland.

    Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians said Sanders favored his sore knee and ended up with a sore foot. Sanders had surgery on both feet in the offseason and likely will sit until the Steelers travel to San Francisco.

    One player who did practice was guard Ramon Foster. He looks like he'll play against the Browns.

    © Nose tackle Chris Hoke will have neck surgery next week and his season is done.

    It's likely Hoke's career is finished as well.

    Apparently his stinger issue was not getting any better and the best course of action was surgery.

    © Arians said today that its a priority for him to get Hines Ward the 10 catches he needs to get to 1,000 career receptions - so long as its in the context of winning football games.

    The Steelers wanted to get Ward some more catches against Cincinnati, but the Bengals doubled him all over the field, knowing what the Steelers were up to.

    Quite honestly I think it's pretty lame for the Bengals to double Hines Ward just to stop those catches. It's not like you need to double cover Hines at all under normal circumstances. He's not going to run away from anybody and he's not a primary target in the offense at all.

    If Hines can get the receptions, more power to him. I just hope that Arians and Roethlisberger don't push it too much at the cost of offensive efficiency. You wouldn't think that they would, but it is an Arians-guided offense.

    As long as he stays true to his word and not force the issue, I'm sure they will have several plays designed for Hines to get into open space (other than bubble screens).

    Let Cleveland double Hines, that leaves the young guns in single coverage.

    At this point in time Hines is the worst WR on the roster, I love the guy but agree do not force the issue!

    Not the fastest or the youngest, but, Hines has the best hands, most physical, no one better in the clutch (AB is up and coming), one of the best at reading defenses / blitzes.

    Speed and youth don't always equate to greatness - see Troy Edwards.

    Just my opinion, and agree that he should not be force fed, but if he is open, throw it to him.

    Oh please please please. Double Hines every play. Have 2 guys escort him to the toilet. That just leaves more foom for Wallace and Brown.

    Whoa there sailor! I would not use "worst." He is still a great receiver for what he does. Maybe "Not as useful," or "not as good."

    Not trying to start a pissing match here but look at the group we have:

    Wallace, Brown, Sanders, Cotchery, Hines

    I'm all about getting Hines his catches but this is a must win AFCN game not a preseason opener for tinkering!

    Horny

    What will Bruce Arians do tomorrow?

    Will he play to our strengths? We he play to the brownies weaknesses?

    Our strength and our new identity, passing! Will he unleash Ben and Co. and pass all over the browns?

    Thier weakness is defending the run, they`re the worst. Will he keep handing the ball to Mendy and Red?

    Looks like it should be a clear night, I would like to see a great game called, pass the ball, mix in some run, get a big early lead, I hope. Then get Hines at least 7 catches and a TD if we can get the lead.
