Nothing quite so demoralizing as losing a rookie first-rounder — and a starter — on a meaningless play in a meaningless game at the hands of his own teammate. But if there’s a silver lining in all this it’s that the Steelers’ offense came out of its coma after DeCastro left the field on a cart, with Ramon Foster at right guard.
The point: Pittsburgh and Big Ben (he was calling the plays during that 98-yard end-of-half drive!) seem to be at their best with their metophorical backs against the wall. So, yes, losing DeCastro is devasting. But the Steelers will be okay. (That said: enough with the injuries. I’m tired of saying this.)
