I don't know how many of you are signed up for the Steelers text message news letter but for today youd hope you werent.
In the middle of chem today I get a text saying how Aaron Smith could have a "significant" shoulder injury. Well guess what!? Come home, check nfl.com and they say that he has a partially torn rotator cuff. This means that he could either be out for 3 months if he has surgery or miss less time if he doenst opt for surgery but risk his career. Overall this just flat out sucks. Anybody remember the last time we lost him for amount of time? Oh 2007 that was such a great year. Honestly though who the hell is supposed to replace him? Ziggy Hood? He's neither ready nor a defensive end. Travis Kirschke? I think hes a decent player...but he's a backup for a reason...Tyrone Carter anyone? Seriously i'm starting to believe in the freakin madden curse. Just when Polamalu comes back Smith gets hurt. If there's any two players that are more of a force on our team its those two. Thats so ironic too because the announcers last game were talking about how underrated Smith is. Are we ever going to catch a break? Pitch in and say if we will actually survive this year and who can step up for Smith. If I dont answer its because I drowned myself.
