Don’t Expect Much in the Way of Changes from Steelers’ D.

I feel like I’ve been in some form of twilight zone over the past week because I swear I’ve had the same conversation over and over.

I think we all realize that the Pittsburgh Steelers’ defense is better with James Harrison on the field than off.

Onward Steelers; Foote Getting the Job Done

Coming into the 2012 season, anytime the name Larry Foote was mentioned, it was typically followed by the ‘replacement for James Farrior the all-pro linebacker who has now retired.’ I don’t know about you, but I think I would get tired of this after awhile and that’s no knock on Potsie who had an outstanding …
