A quick daily look at what’s happening around Steelers Nation. And consider this your open thread for discussing the days events and, well, anything else that comes to mind about the Black and Gold.
– Maybe I’m part of the problem because I figured James Harrison might get a fine for one or both hits against the Browns. But because, you know, this is football, I didn’t think it would go beyond that. Yeah, I was wrong. The NFL, apparently just realizing that this a violent sport, will now start suspending people for what they deem dangerous hits.
I tweeted it yesterday but I’ll repeat it here: I have no issue with the league suspending Deebo. Not because I think he should be suspended (he shouldn’t), but because I’m guessing it’ll just make the Steelers angrier and better. If they can win without Ben, they can win without James. Anyway, Browns fans/media aren’t happy. Shocker, I know. [Gigler for the Post-Gazette]
– Keisel’s out for the Dolphins game and maybe more. If nothing else, perhaps we’ll get a longer look at Ziggy. [Trib-Review]
– Just like the four previous games, the defense does it again [Behind the Steel Curtain]
– And for your Random YouTube Magic, a short trip in the Steelers Lounge Time Machine, back to Week 17 of the 2009 season. Also known as: The Last Time Pat White Played in the NFL. (And, yes, Ike should be suspended as well. HELMET TO HELMET WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.)
