Steelers Post-Gazette beat writer Ed Bouchette joined the Fan Morning Show after the Steelers win and give us an update on the injured offensive line, but everything appears to be fine with Maurkice Pouncey. Ed thinks Rashard Mendenhall should be fine for the rest of the year with the way he has run the ball so far this year. Jeff Reed will not be replaced anytime soon, Ed said. He is one of the more reliable kickers in the league, and most of his misses are from around 50 yds.
Ed said this Steelers defense is a good defense, but he thinks a reason opponents have come back is because the league has skewed the calls toward the offense and the officials have made some ticky-tac calls.
