    Out of all that, that's what got my attention the most also.

    I agree with your sentiment, especially with our history of first round OL. In this case however, I don't think there is anything major. He doesn't have any injury history, and it may very well stem from that fumble return against the Vikes, where he pulled up and fell while chasing Robison. He doesn't seem like the kind of player who is fragile.

    If Peanut doesn't play tomorrow night i hope Bowman has a good game and not make to many mistakes, i'm sure the steelers will throw plenty passes Bowman's way and not so much Tim Jennings side.

    We really need Tillman to be able to play, and play well in this game. If he can't play, or is seriously gimpy on that knee, then that is huge. Peanut is one of about 4 players on this team we can't replace very easily. Bowman is his replacement. He's a big step down from Peanut.

    The good news is Pittsburgh's lost any serious big play receiver. Honestly, the offense looks like it's worse than the 2010 Bears, and that's saying something. As long as Heath Miller isn't used as a safety valve in case the pass rush isn't getting there quick enough, I honestly see a smothering.

    There a perfectly clear reason WHY they fake an injury, to gain time. Not quite the same thing. ;)
    Not like a PRO team is going to believe a player is injured and alter their game plan and then DOH, he DOES play. No.
    Any deceptions have to do with making a player seems LESS injured and MORE Likely to play so a team doens't attack the position (Tillman) that they KNOW is going to be out.
    Football is a brutal game and if you only have 1 injury at a time you are doing pretty well.
    At this level the difference between guys that stick and guys that don't is WHO can play through pain, cuz it's always going to be there. The non-star guys that stick in this league are the toughest SOB's around. They don't exaggerate their injuries, it's a MACHO thing at this level.
    Sorry if I assumed you would know such things.
