I'd like to agree with you on SBI but somehow, some fucking how when we play them it'll look like they have 4 D'onta Hightowers playing. Hell, it'll probably look like they have 4 Randy Moss' playing also.

it is huge news. However, the injury bug is a fickle being so its best not gloat in other team's problems. Sucks for the Pats, Im sure they will be fine.

I know Shazier gets shit on a lot here at Steeler Fury for being injury prone and missing a lot of time but I have always felt it is the nature of the ILB position. Specifically, that impact ILB that teams expect to do everything, to be that playmaker, that tone setter, the linchpin of the defense.

I did a post this offseason where I talked of how the top ILBs all seem to miss time, significant time, that Shazier was no better or worse than any of the other top ILBs.

So, Hightower was on my list and now look, here he is done for the year.

Luke Kuechly was on my list too, and he continues to have concussions at an alarming rate. He missed this past game with a concussion and MAY be able to play this Sunday.

Sean Lee was on my list, he has only played in 4 games for the Cowboys this year, he may not play this Sunday.

Tampa Bay has a really great young MLB in Kwon Alexander, who has only played in 2 games this year because of injuries.

Our own Vince Williams will probably miss this weeks game.

As I talked in the original post, it is hard to find ILBs that can play in all 16 games, start all 16 games. Maybe people should remember that when Shazier misses a game here or there, but no the old china doll moniker comes out and talk of him being unreliable and undependable ensues.

Yeah but Shazier is predisposed to injury because of his frame
