    PFT is particularly filled with idiots, the human race is in question whenever I read comments there.

    The Steelers are one of those teams like the Patriots who can suffer these supposedly "devastating" losses to key players and still manage to plug in scrubs and have them play at a high level just long enough to win football games. Are the Ravens one of those teams? With Suggs out, we might get to see.

    Neither one of them was touched when the injury occurred.

    How easily we forget how close even routine NFL play can come to the limits of what the human body can support.

    Exactly! Roesthlisberger turns a mediocre team into a playoff contender every year.

    What are you smoking? Are you calling the Steelers team mediocre? Of course Ben has had a huge part of the Steelers winning the SB in 08 and getting there in 2011, while having a bunch of other success (granted in 2005, he was riding that team more than winning it for them) but there is no question Ben has rarely ever played on an average team. The 08 team was from top to bottom arguably the best all around team in the NFL with a flawed offensive line, but the defense was out of this world. The only area where the Steelers have struggled at is the offensive line, I'd say there is a strength in pretty much every other area on the Steelers roster, maybe they could do with a slight upgrade at RB, but Redman looks like a powerhouse and probably an upgrade over Mendenhall as crazy as that may sound.

    I do have a feeling though with Reothlisberger getting up there in age, the hits he will be taking this season could prove too much for him and could cost him time in the season. The Steelers will still win some of those games without Ben because of how good their teams still is, but they aren't quite what they used to be, and it could be the difference between winning the division and a wild card berth, or even (probably really unlikely) a missed trip to the play offs.

    According to Schefter in This Piece, Decastro has significant knee damage but didn't tear his ACL.
    Still sounds like the dude is down for quite some time with everything else he damaged.

    Pittsburgh will be fine if they can stay healthy. However, that seems to be an issue for them.

    Interestingly, NFL.com is reporting that he did tear his ACL and is done for the season.

    DeCastro is done for the season, according to NFL.com.

    The offseason has been an unmitigated disaster for them so far. They have no depth due to a top heavy roster with salary,missed draft picks, and question marks all over the place on both sides of the ball.

    If Jen can stay upright they will probably be 8-8 at least, but anyone who thinks this team is one of the best in the AFC has a screw loose.

    I would like to agree with you, but I have written them off so many times in years past, only to have them figure out a way into the playoffs.

    All I heard all offseason was how good their line will be. Now we see Adams is a long ways away and Decastro is done for the year. Same lame Oline. Last night almost every pass play they were getting pushed back into Ben. Outside of Rainey I don't think they have a back who runs a sub 5 second 40. All their backs look slow. Better get Wallace back or they will battling the Browns for 3rd. Love it.

    2006 they didn't get in the playoffs. 2009 they didn't get in the playoffs.

    It just isn't a given that the Steelers will get in every single year.
    Especially with their cap situation handcuffing them this offseason, and an injury list a mile long. And we haven't even played a real fame yet.

    Not only are they not better at any position from last year, they got worse at a number of them. Much worse, due to injury and completey unproven players being relied upon to start or play significant snaps.

    NFL.com has now clarified its story to be in-line with Schefter's.

    No ACL tear (which would have definitely ended his season). As it is, he is apparently going to miss a lot of time.

    Torn mcl could potentially be the rest of the season too. Not as bad as acl, but still bad.
