10:52 AM ET 12.10 | The Pittsburgh Steelers will have a makeshift offensive line the rest of the way, as left guard Willie Colon is likely finished for the year after reaggravating a knee injury. Colon came back after missing two games, but hurt his left knee again and had to leave the game against the San Diego Chargers. The team returned to the awkward arrangement they'd had with him out, with all-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey sliding over from center to left guard and backup Doug Legursky handling the snaps.

Hey, Charlie, get out of that cab! We've canceled your retirement again. Ben says "**** this noise; make Charlie do it". Meet us in the Kevlar Fitting Room in ten minutes. Bring a priest.

That's a damn shame.

Based on the picture, they also have hideously ugly uniform issues, as well.

They have more issues than that. It is not a steelers year and personel change is a coming. Even if they make the playoffs it is only because the AFC has a lot of pretenders and only two contenders.

Issues Indeed ! This team seems to take "weak" opponents for granted, They had an opportunity to advance a game on the Ravens and the Bengals, and what happened...the Browns picked up a game on all three!

They've had "O-line issues" since Faneca left, but they still managed to go to 2 Super Bowls and win one. Their "issue" is they have a mixture of older veterans and young players that have started to tune out the HC. All, Tomlin does now is chest bump players coming off the field. hold grudges against John Harbaugh, talk in ridiculous cliche-speak at post-game press conferences and talk trash with opposing players on the field (i.e. Philip Rivers yesterday).

He has not improved at his craft as a HC, which really means he has regressed. He fired his ST coach before the season w/o reason so that his buddy could take over. And he cannot motivate his team to play it's best every Sunday. He may have been ahead of the curve in 2008 but he is an average HC in 2012.

The biggest issue is friggin' receivers that can't catch that damn ball.

What the hell is with Wallace this year? If not for all those misses of catchable balls in the first quarter, the Steelers would've likely had a lead at the end of the quarter. All the WRs were dropping balls.

I want some one of those uniforms to use as PJ's.

Scare the daylights out of my better half, YEAH!

Pittsburgh has other issues re: the uniform displayed in the photo. I don't know how Heinz Field, as well as the stands, wouldn't be covered in vomit after having to see people dressed that way.
