    It does, but I hope we do the same to Rothlisberger on Sunday.

    hasn’t he had surgery on that same shoulder twice now? Could that be his career?

    Shaun Philips just gained a little more respect and expect him to be even more wrapped up throughout the rest of the season. With Merriman out for this one, it will certainly have a terrible impact on our pass rush.

    Yeah... we'll have ZERO sacks instead of one.

    I actually think the defense will play better with Merriman out right now. He hasn't been more than 75% in any of the 3 games thus far, so English gets another full week of preparation... and the Steelers' o-line is nowhere near as good as Baltimore's right now.

    That's a career ender.

    The Chad Henne era has officially begun.

    That's really too bad. The Dolphins had a reasonable shot at having a fine year.

    Yeah as much as in a sense I'm glad the bolts don't have to play him again, he's a good guy and a hell of a competitor

    Sorry to hear that. Never like anyone losing players for the whole season.

    I think the NFL needs to develope a mini IR for players who will be out 6 or more weeks... Not that such a thing would help Chad right now. I cant imagine how frustrated he must be.

    He did, he owned us, I would hate to see him go out like that. He was a great adversary, he made us play our A game every time he came in here.

    I am not a Doctor, but I just don’t see how they can go in there and fix it up a third time, and what I mean is how much fresh meat is still in there? And on the other side, how much range of motion will he have, and is it worth it too try for another season or is it time to hang them up,

    they had it that way a few years ago. They changed it because of the way that the teams were placing the players on the list, then taking them off.

    I heard the same thing. He is supposed to have "The" Dr Andrews look at it. Same doc that has cut on his shoulder twice already.

    I hope not, but at the same time he has to start thinking about the long term effects.

    Agree. I'm all about keeping Shawne & LT out for now if we can swing it. I f Applewhite can get healthy, keep Shawne out. And WTF is Tyler of the new contract??

    Yep - Chad has had a questionable arm/shoulder his entire career. Marshall has been a long-time competitor of VT. Chad has always been a good competitor & very smart, but his arm is fragile.

    This suck's, I hate even hearing about it, and I don't like that it happened to him. I've had three major sport's related injury surgical procedures and none of it was fun. 18 months is what I had to go through and I'll tell you this, every second of it was fawked up.

    Fawk, I had surgery today on my left elbow and it sucks. Luckily, a friend of mine came out here from Dego and she is helping me out.
