He might be one of the healthier starters on a defense forced to bounce back from a toothless performance littered with breakdowns both mental and physical. Getting handed the franchise's worst loss in 27 years - a 31-point meltdown against Philadelphia - has a way of limiting your options.

Now Pittsburgh (2-1) must try to fix things on the fly with new parts - or in some cases ones that haven't been used for a while - in new places. He insists his surgically repaired right knee is fine. The Steelers had to rely on Jarvis Jones (who had four total tackles) and, obviously, that didn't go as well as defensive coordinator Keith Butler had hoped it would. Time to see how much they've learned. "We've been able to talk to him, communicate, when he's been allowed to be here for meetings and stuff", Roethlisberger said. I'm not a Tomlin-basher by any means, and feel that if anything, he doesn't get enough credit for what's he done here in Pittsburgh. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

The Philadelphia Eagles stifled Williams and the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, en route to a 34-3 blowout win.

"He's going to be harder on himself than anyone else, so I don't need to bring him down any more, just keep building him up and let him know that I have faith and trust in him", Roethlisberger said of Wheaton. The stuff like that we've got to eliminate. "What am I doing on that play?'" He played 95% of the team's offensive snaps, according to Fantasy Data.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly. "It's not like we're not in position".

The Chiefs will also be challenged to get ahead early. Butler's system is a little more streamlined than his predecessor Dick LeBeau, though that is largely out of necessity.

Butler's scheme also relies on less blitzing that what LeBeau preferred, instead of looking for defenders to win head-to-head battles with blockers.

"We have a great group of guys in all three phases", linebacker Arthur Moats said. "We're just happy he can recover from this incident and get his career back because that's what matters to him and matters to us as well".

Paying Osweiler $72 million never really made much sense anyway, but Elway's reluctance looks even more shrewd after a Week 3 that couldn't have gone more differently for the Broncos' former and current quarterbacks.

Las Vegas likes the Steelers, the experts like the Steelers and for reasons unknown to many.this will make fans extremely uneasy. He did not practice for the second consecutive day and is unlikely to play Sunday.

NOTES: G Ramon Foster (chest), S Robert Golden (hamstring), S Sean Davis (back), LB Ryan Shazier (knee) and WR Eli Rogers (toe) did not practice on Wednesday. G B.J. Finney was limited. On the bright side, the Steelers get Le'Veon Bell back for their Week 4 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
