Big Ben gets his bell rung, and then Charlie Batch needs surgery on his wrist. Who's the third stringer who may have to start next week? If this injury to Ben is going to keep him out a few weeks, will the steelers even make the playoffs?

The legendary, indomitable... Dennis Dixon. Hey, he's got a 79.2 QB rating (career line of 1-1, 3 yards passing (nfl.com) notwithstanding).

Jeff Garcia and Cleo Lemon are the two outside names I've been hearing all morning. (National Football Post)

Also in huge trouble in the near future are the Packers, who managed to lose both Aaron Kampman and Al Harris for the season yesterday.

I think Ben is supposed to be fine for next week. Obviously I mean football fine, not I think this was at least his 5th concussion fine. They should still sign Garcia for insurance though, obv. (Why doesn't Leftwich just mosey on back? He was the [Dumb] People's Champ here in the city last year.)

The goal for the season may have to be shifted from Super Bowl repeat to making sure we go to Cincinnati for the wild card game and get them back, however.

Why on earth would ANYBODY be clamoring for Cleo Lemon to start for an NFL team? Is that a joke?

NFL contracts, even with Tampa Bay, are marginally more ironclad than, say, ECW's, Raw's, or Smackdown!'s.

Right, but I don't think they'd miss him. Poor Byron will never be the king of Florida once more.

Aaron Kampman was mis-cast in the 3-4. We did alright against Dallas without him. Al Harris WILL be missed.

Apparently, Leftwhich is in danger of being cut this week. So maybe it'll work out after all.

Steeler fans at the moment are more concerned about:

#1. The unbelievably horrendous special teams on kick-off/punt returns and what's it going to take for the special teams coach to be fired.

#2. When will offensive cordinator Bruce Arians and his pass happy play calling be run out of town?

#3. Defense: Why can't the secondary function without Troy Polamalu and why does the defense play well for 3 quarters and then basically disappears in the 4th ever since the Super Bowl against the Cardinals?

Should've been the second he called the pitch to Mewelde Moore on 3rd and 2 in field goal range in overtime. FUCK'S SAKE :O

The good news for Pittsburgh is that after this week's tilt with Baltimore, they get two virtual byes against Oakland and Cleveland, so there's plenty of time to get people healthy before their big two final games of the season hosting the Ravens and going to suddenly-hot Miami.

That's what we all said about K.C.

Ask the Bengals how easy Oakland is. Ben is going to play and as a Steelers' fan, I think its a bad idea. Ben's 5th concussion is something that needs to be taken very seriously. I say IR Charlie, sign Garcia and let him deal with the Ravens in a game that the Steelers probably weren't going to win anyway. If Troy is out for a month, I think we can see an 9-7 season with no post-season.

There is nothing virtual about counting Cleveland as a win. That goes for any team Cleveland plays, for the rest of the season. Oakland on the other hand has Gradkowski power, and since he is an ex-Brown now he must excel. Go Rockets!

I was just thinking about Dixon the other day after watching part of Oregon/Arizona. I remember reading about his rehab after he tore up his leg. I had forgotten he ended up with the Steelers.

Byron Leftwich is probably sounding pretty good right about now.

Except for the part where he's on IR.

http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/news?slug=cr-uncagents092910 OK it was bad before, but this is well beyond that now. USC got nailed because a coach knew what was going on but wasn't involved. UNC had a coach on the take for years.
