    How much longer are the Steelers going to dress only 7 lineman?

    How many more injuries is it going to take before Tomlin and Kugler finally decide that 7 players on the offensive line is just not enough. How many years has it been since we've had a starting 5 that have played together for even half a season let alone the entire year?

    Deactivate an extra defensive back if you have too, they don't normally get hurt as quickly as our blockers do. I don't care who it is but somebody please justify the the continued thinking that 7 is all we can afford to have on gameday. I'd say we are beyond lucky that the starters lasted as long as they did this year so far.

    I don't care if Kelvin Beachum is a rookie, at least he's a healthy body available.

    At this point, why bother carrying both Mundy and Allen on the gameday roster, it's not like either one is going to give you anything close to a consistent, solid game. Besides that you don't normally have DB's going down very often and if an emergency situation came about then stick Cortez back there just to get through the game.

    Free up a spot anyway you want but I'm tired of only having 7 guys available, none of which has proven they can stay healthy for any length of time.

    As other people have mentioned, someone should start looking at why we're seeing so many injuries. Is there a conditioning problem? Flexibility issues? Strength concerns?

    I'm thinking Kugler has very little to do with the number of linemen that dress for the game.

    I think the strength and conditioning of this team is below par, Falls on coaches and players for this issue. This team has had to many inuries over the past few years it's mind blowing.

    Carter also hurt, so now we're down another LB.

    Could this a result of the CBA put in place last year, and the limited number of practices etc now allowed?
