PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Barring the umpteenth injury to the Steelers’ offensive line, the tape will show that Ramon Foster replaced Willie Colon at left guard in Dallas. In any event, Foster hopes that tape shows something–anything–better than the one of last Sunday’s disaster at Heinz Field.

“It showed more of us not executing our stuff. San Diego is a very good defense…and we didn’t execute. They did a little bit better than we did,” Foster told 93.7 The Fan’s Eric Hagman on the South Side Wednesday. “It was one of those games…they got pressure, and stuff like that, and we’ve just got to be better in that department. We can’t let them determine the game.”

Kickoff between the 7-6 Steelers and Cowboys at Cowboys Stadium is set for 4:15 Sunday on KDKA-TV.
