Can’t believe it’s already Week 16. A Panthers team somehow more banged up than the Steelers will be at Heinz Field tonight. In the meantime, a few Steelers-related links:
– Troy’s out, Heath’s in tonight.
– Ryan Clark awaits word on the inevitable fine he will receive for leveling Braylon Edwards. [Tribune-Review]
– I love that Gerry Dulac spent a few hundred words on this matchup: Clausen vs. Farrior. [Post-Gazette]
– Dulac also writes that Panthers coach John Fox learned from Chuck Noll. [PG]
– A more detailed matchup breakdown from Behind the Steel Curtain [BTSC]
Not-so-random YouTubes: yep, that’s right, the Anthony Smith high-steppin’ interception against the Panthers from the 2006 season. A couple thoughts: Still love Dick LeBeau’s reaction. Deion Sanders: shut up.
Oh, one more thing: this is your game thread.
