Morning Links (and Daily Thread)…

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.

– Our friend Brian St. Pierre is back in the NFL having signed with the Carolina Panthers this week. Even more incredible? He split first-team practice reps with Tony Pike and could actually start Sunday’s game against Baltimore. Wow. Since being selected in the fifth-round of the 2003 draft, St. Pierre has thrown five passes, completed two, and been impersonated by one person. I have no idea how he continues to catch on with NFL teams, but he keeps finding a way.

– Behind The Steel Curtain was also present at Tuesday’s One Team Tour Tailgate Event in Pittsburgh. [Behind The Steel Curtain]

– And in case you haven’t read it yet, here’s my brief chat with Ryan Clark from the same event. [Us]

– Jeff Reed’s agent claims that Jeff Reed received offers from two teams after clearing waivers, but turned them both down. Also possible: Agent trying to drum up business for client. [Pittsburgh Post Gazette]

– And for your random YouTube of the day: James Farrior.

    I’m not sure we’ve made enough of the Steelers injuries up front. Of the 8 OL and DL who were supposed to be starters going into the season, all 8 have missed significant time due to injury. Add in Hines and Timmons coming out of the last game, and Harrison being limited, and we were missing lots of blockers and front 7 attackers. This might have been the most banged up we’ve been in a game in a long time.

      I agree. 3/5 of our starting OL and 2/3 of our starting DL were out. That is a killer in the NFL. A lot of the guys we are starting/giving major PT too are barely NFL caliber.

      “I’m not sure we’ve made enough of the Steelers injuries up front.”

      We may not have.

      Our opponents will.

    It’s been mentioned several times in different places that the Steelers have gove 6-2 in the first halves of the last four seasons.

    In fact, in the last eleven half-seasons – going back to 2005 – the Steelers have had seven 6-2 halves. That would be the first half of 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009 aand 2010 and the second half of 2006 and 2008.

    That’s seven out of the last eleven half-seasons. Not bad. Now let’s go for eight of twelve.

    If Suisham gets injured in, say, Week 16, would you go back to Reed, assuming he is available?

    Are you suggestion that the Steelers start Legursky?

    And St. Pierre has been named the starter for Carolina on Sunday against Baltimore.
