I'm hesitant to even write about this topic for fear that my treatment of the subject will doom my other Pittsburgh sports love for the remainder of the season. If Sidney Crosby blows out his knee tomorrow night, it's all my fault.
One of the most interesting things about the Year of Champions was the close camaraderie between Pittsburgh's championship teams last year. From Max Talbot becoming a full-on Steeler fan to Casey Hampton sitting at center ice to Ray Shero and Kevin Colbert cheering each other on, the Penguins/Steelers crossover was something to behold.
This week’s gospel will be a little different; generally when the Steelers play on a short week I will focus only on the matchups…The problem this week…I have no freaking clue what players will start for the Steelers at key positions across the defense. I will guess at the matchups. This season feels like 2003…The Steelers are just a mess…The team has zero direction on both sides of the ball.
