C Maurkice Pouncey Carted Off With Knee Injury


It’s been one of the most bizarre starts to a season ever in the Steel City.

The Steelers got a safety on the first kickoff of the 2013 season when the Titans on accident took a safety to make it 2-0 Steelers.

Then, on the Steelers first possession, they were driving, only to have disaster happen.

Center Maurkice Pouncey left the game on a cart when it appeared he suffered a serious knee injury.

Pouncey got hurt when last seasons first round pick, right guard David DeCastro, rolled onto his lower right leg on a running play.

The Pro Bowl center was down on the field and left on a cart.

The team only has seven offensive linemen today, and they will ALL be used in the matchup now.

    Well that is not a good start to the season. Tomlin needs all his players healthy to keep the team at 8-8.
    Tomlin is a clown that never should have been hired. This minority interviewing process is a big joke. Hire the best person for the job, not just because his is a minority!

        How pathetic we can’t even score 3 points! We will probably be the worst team in the league! Someone needs to put a foot up their ass and play football!!

    I should have seen this coming and switched my alligence to the Broncos last year. All the Steeler players who helped win Super Bowls have been dealt to other teams. Titan’s are like having a sandlot team beating Pittsburgh. This is what happens when you put your offense in the hands of a moron like Todd Haley. Your on a sinking ship Mike T. I’ll ask Denver’s front office if they can find a spot for you.
