Just remember Steelers’s fans, things could always be worse. The Jets had a plane circling their practice field yesterday. It towed a sign calling for the firing of the general manager.
-Practice today is from 1-3pm Eastern.
-Injury report from Wednesday is a long one… Did Not Practice, Keisel, Mitchell, Miller, Pouncey (Not Injury Related)… Limited participants, Cam Heyward, Ike Taylor… Did Not Practice Due to Injury, Polamalu, Shazier, Ventrone, Thomas, Worilds
-I took a bit of criticism for my article last week about Haley not reverting back to his old ways heading into the Baltimore game. The Pro-Haley crowd took exception even though the Steelers came out in the first quarter with a more conservative approach.
-In case you missed this, Mean Joe got the “Renegade” treatment Sunday night.
-Here are Ben Roethlisberger’s thoughts on facing the Jets.
-Big game tonight in the AFC North as Cleveland plays at Cincinnati. Both teams dealing with some injury issues.
-Le’Veon Bell wasn’t a huge factor on Sunday night especially running the ball but he was a monster when it came to key receptions in the game and in picking up the blitz.
-I’m very curious to see what Rex Ryan does to try and slow down Roethlisberger. With a poor secondary and the fact that Ben is good against the blitz, his options are limited.
