BEN IN, WOODLEY OUT



OK, finally got clarification: Ben Roethlisberger WILL play today, Lamarr Woodley will not. Woodley will be replaced by Lawrence Timmons. Other injury-related changes include Mewelde Moore for Willie Parker at RB, Max Starks for Marvel Smith at OT, and Matt Spaeth for Heath Miller at TE.

Other inactives include QB Dennis Dixon, DE Orpheus Roye, and OT Tony Hills. And to answer your next question, yes, I'm ready for some football.

Somebody please teach Santonio Holmes the importance of fighting for the ball. His lack of effort resulted in the INT which wound up costing them the game.

That could have easily been an incomplete pass, or possibly a tough completion, if he'd bothered to match the defender's effort.

Holmes has trouble fighting for the ball.

Having Heath out of the game really didn't help. Woodley being out sucked as well.

Did anyone see how poorly Brett Keisel played today on pass rush?

I thought Spaeth looked good catching and protecting the ball, but I couldn't help but wonder how many extra yards Heath would've had on some of those catches.

Heath was missed.
