Is that ambiguous enough of a statement for you?
Cowher spent 20 minutes double-talking his way through a
press conference Tuesday, saying plenty and nothing at the
same time. But that's nothing new.
You can bet the Steelers will guard their stars in Sunday's game.
Sure they are going to try to win. But Cowher doesn't want guys
running around out there thinking about not getting hurt, either.
© Some would think Sunday's game will be a good opportunity
to get a look at some young players in game situations.
But with the injuries the Steelers have had this season, there
aren't many players who haven't gotten a chance to see major
We'll see a lot of Max Starks at right tackle, with Oliver Ross
sliding to the left side in place of Marvel Smith. Chukky Okobi will
also play a lot for Jeff Hartings. We might even get to see Jim Jones at left guard in place of Alan Faneca. There may even be a
Matt Kranchick sighting.
But the problem will be the inactives. If Ben Roethlisberger is
deactivated as the third quarterback, the Steelers likely will have
to add Brian St. Pierre to the active roster. That means
somebody else has to be released.
The problem is, you start messing with team chemistry if you cut
somebody now, days before they get themselves a playoff check.
Lots of talk, but little info
