Steelers Six From Around The Web – Friday October 1st – Legursky May Be New Right Guard Edition

Ed Bouchette thinks the Steelers may want to sign Steve McLendon again from the practice squad if Chris Hoke can not practice again today. The Steelers only have 5 healthy defensive linemen besides Hoke. If McLendon is signed, Bouchette thinks Dennis Dixon will be placed on season ending injured reserve and we agree with him.

Scott Brown blogged about how guard Doug Legursky may indeed have won the right guard job from Trai Essex based on the comments of Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. Regardless, it is safe to say Essex will be down this week again with an ankle sprain and Legursky will start.

Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward talked with Rich Eisen on Thursday about the Steelers heated rivalry with the Ravens and what\’s behind their 3-0 start.

Former Steelers great Rod Woodson breaks down on video how Steelers safety Troy Polamalu changes games and how he makes a difference on defense.

    I agree with Terry Bradshaw that Ben Roethlisberger should not be a part of the Steelers organization. Nonetheless, there has been very little debate in Pittsburgh, and most people seem to agree that Ben should play as soon as possible in order to win ballgames.

    I do not doubt that Ben’s play increases our chance of winning regardless of our 3 and 0 start. He is a great quarterback and has proven that he can win superbowls. My issue is that I am a Pittsburgh Steelers fan for life, not a few seasons. I grew up with the Steelers of the 80’s and only heard stories of the Steelers of the 70’s. Losing sucks, but our strength compared to other teams in the league is our tradition. Keeping Ben Roethlisberger is a threat to our tradition. Steelers fans may disagree on the degree of that threat, but the threat does exist. We have rarely kept players who have acted like Ben. And we should not sacrifice forty years of tradition and our identity as a team in exchange for a few winning seasons.
