01:31 PM ET 10.10 | The Pittsburgh Steelers face the Tennessee Titans on Thursday NIght Football and they'll be without two impact defenders when they line up. Safety Troy Polamalu has already been ruled out for the game, according to Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, and the official injury report ahead of Thursday's game also lists linebacker LaMarr Woodley as out. Polamalu injured his right calf in Week 5 and there's concern he could miss more than just Thursday's game against Tennessee.

They're playing Tennessee...

Just put the Fat Guys up front to stop C.J. and it'll be over quick.

Yawn- They could suit up their cheerleaders and they'd still beat the Titans. Who would know if it was Polamalu or a cheerleader on the field with all that hair, that is unless she has a bad case of dandruff.

The Steelers offense scores easily and often enough that they should win going away, but taking an opponent for granted is a good way to lose a game that you should win.

Except for the fact that the Steelers don't have cheerleaders, I get your point.

Ok what the hell does Polamalu do in the offseason? He is always messing up his calves and his hammies. He needs to spend less time on strength training and more time on stretching and flexibility.

I know he didn't miss a game last year, but honestly doesn't it feel like forever since he's been healthy for an entire season?

We had cheerleaders back in the day. After the Colts brought cheerleading to the NFL, just about every team in the NFL thought they needed cheerleaders.

But the Rooneys ended up deciding that they didn't like them, and that the cheerleaders were just be blocking someone's view of the field, so they got rid of them.

Besides, we don't need cheerleaders, we have our gay pride mascot, Steely McBeam!

Troy has played for 10 years can you name another safety who has played at his level and not had some injury problems by their 10th season???
