    Embrace the tank. This season was cooked before it started. Dark days are ahead for a long time.

    Just happy he walked off on his own. Could have been much much worse. Game changed as soon as he left.

    I gotta be honest. He seemed pretty okay to me walking off the field considering what happened.

    I have a feeling he might miss some time, but nothing serious.

    I really thought it was his knee and I expected to come back from commercial with him on a cart....then they showed him walking around and said it was his hip. Hoping he is back. We desperately need him.

    Rapaport is reporting he’s scheduled to have an mri on knee and hip today. They don’t think injuries are season ending, but short term ir or just plain week to week are possibilities.

    Sounds like best case scenario he may be a couple weeks gone. Which means out vs Chargers and Bengals. Two games where you need disrupt good QB play.

    Hopefully its not longer than, if he's gone for longer... it will not be good. Probably that most unreplaceable player on the Steelers.

    The Melvin Ingram trade looks really bad now.

    Steelers aren't winning many more games at all...Watt out, Dotson and Turner out, maybe Haden... Ben's washed, no JuJu, no Tuitt/Alualu, Taco to START...And of course...

    Tomlin is still there!

    They've been a terrible football organization this season, going back to March.

    Been terrible since last season not realizing our run game was smoke and mirrors and we got really lucky in those games to start the season ..We really made no real adjusments after the Ravens showed Teams how to play us ..Then we approached the off season thinking all is well it seems and this season will end even worse than last years...

    The Ingram trade was stupid even if Watt wasn't injured.

    possibly. No way to tell if he was acting the fool like AB.

    It wasn't one I think they wanted to make, but when someone doesn't want to be part of the team, its kind of hard to not do something to get something out of it.

    It isn't hard at all. You hold the guy to his contract. You don't repeatedly send the message that players can force the team into making bad trades or releasing players just because the guy isn't happy with his contract or his playing time. Such moves have come back to bite the Steelers in the ass before, yet they keep caving. Now they are stuck with a practice squad guy and a bust they signed off the street earlier this season as options to start at outside linebacker.

    Best case outcome. As it happened, I was worried that they would return from the commercial break with TJ getting an air cast on his leg. I feared he may have snapped his tibia when his leg whipped around and hit Schobert.

    You mean the guy who had two assisted tackles in two games for the Chiefs?
