[QUOTE]oh woe is the steelers, look at their line woe is the colts, "decimated" by injuries woe is the broncos (probably doesnt mean much to you all, but living in denver, i hear it alot) you line up, and you take snaps. its not like the steelers were only playing with 3 or 4 players on the o line last night, they still lined up 5 guys. the pats lost 2 of their three best defensive players before the season even started! (warren, bodden) but noone is talking about that. it is simply incredible. just because we lost them at the beggining of the season, apparently they dont matter. every team plays with injuries, and the pats are sitting at the top

Yes, every team has injuries scattered throughout the team.
The Steelers have the bad luck this year of having so many season ending injuries on one aspect of the team--the O line.
It is so bad, that if one more lineman gets hurt, the Tight Ends will have to play line for them.
You don't have room on a 53 man roster to have a complete, quality replacements for the entire O-Line.
They are between a rock and hard place for the rest of the season, but that's just the way it is.
I don't think most comments about that is a "woe for them" thing. It is just comments that it is really bad luck for any team to have so many injuries in one part of the team.
