    Why would people need rescuing during a fire drill? LOL. Still though he should get the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for his heroism if that's true. You can never be too safe.

    I'd only be worried about him playing if it were against the Lions.

    It's incredible to me that a guy with his money has to still ride a bike. They must have taken his Camaro away! LOL! Seriously though this has to be good news but does anyone know how common it is for a guy to have this much movement this early in his treatment for this injury?

    Remember who were playing, they will try to further hurt Him. I'd keep him in safe haven at this point. Next man up we win this.

    Yep. Suh said he didn't realize he was stepping on Rodgers' foot. He thought it was his throat!

    LOL! I never seen that because I only watch ESPN for MNF. Their best one though was the "Senior Night" where all the old people couldn't hear them. That was really funny. It was a long time ago though.

    My favorite is when McCutchen and the pirate mascots come in and steal all the food from the meeting.

    I like the one where the New Jersey Devils mascot is already on the elevator and he's asked if he's "going up" and he just shakes his head no.

    Or when him and the Penguin are battling over the thermostat. ESPN does have some clever marketing.

    Not saying he didn't matter, just that the running game wasn't the factor that won us the game, and therefore it wouldn't be so critical that we "can't win". That said, I mentioned in another thread about Bell that he is so much more important to our offense than just running and blocking - he had 83 catches this season - you can't just subtract that from an offense and not feel it. But I have confidence we'll still win without Bell.

    I agree and also thought of when Ben and Lefty played and should not have. We shall see!

    Not to hijack the thread, but on that topic - that idiot (Suh) now says that his feet were numb and he couldn't feel Rodgers under him. L to the OL.

    Just read this:


    Le'Veon Bell feels 'great,' but taking it day by day

    By Aditi Kinkhabwala

    PITTSBURGH -- Le'Veon Bell walked down the hallway Wednesday with no discernible limp. He stood by his locker and said, "I feel great." Twice. But then, when the Steelers running back with the hyperextended knee was asked if that "great" meant great enough to play Saturday night, he smiled and said, "Obviously, I'm taking it day by day."

    Mike Tomlin said the Steelers would operate this week as if they won't have Bell in Saturday night's wild-card game vs. the rival Baltimore Ravens. The Steelers signed veteran running back Ben Tate, cast off by both the Browns and the Vikings this season, Tuesday. And even as Tomlin said he'd "leave the light on" for the team MVP and Bell's teammates said they were holding out hope, the focus Wednesday was on readying undrafted rookie Josh Harris.

    "The expectation level is high. He's got big shoes to fill if 2-6 can't go," quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. "We'll see what happens, but we've got confidence in him."

    In coming in after Bell was hurt Sunday night, Harris did show off his speed in a 59-yard run. It was ultimately called back after a late flag for holding, but Roethlisberger said he thought that run had to aid Harris' confidence -- and maybe even send a message to the Ravens that they should respect the Steelers' backup.

    For his part, Harris said both receiver Antonio Brown and tight end Heath Miller have pulled him aside and talked to him about "staying calm." As a reporter asked Harris about the added pressure, linebacker Jason Worilds walked by and said, "There's no pressure. Don't put that in his head."


    Harris very coolly said the best thing he can do "is make sure I have a really good week of practice. You play how you practice." He said his coaches are purposely not trying to overload him, but he's excited to show he can both catch the ball, and revel in blocking well just as much as Bell does. He quietly huddled with Bell in the locker room after talking to reporters and several Steelers said although Harris is shy, he has not been wary of asking for advice.

    Tomlin, meanwhile, cautioned against expecting too much from Tate. Roethlisberger said at most, there might be a package of "a few runs here, a few passes there" for him. He said Tate stood up in the Steelers' team meeting room this morning and told his new teammates he's "just here to help us win."

    Roethlisberger said he didn't know how -- or if at all -- the Steelers' offense would change if Bell is indeed out and the running back group wears these new faces. But he was reminded that the last time the Steelers and Ravens met, Nov. 2, the Steelers won by 20. And as a team only had 55 rushing yards. So maybe, as Tomlin said Tuesday, losing Bell isn't the end-all.

    Maybe it was more like a stinger, he walked perfectly fine going down the steps just after the accident
