05:05 PM ET 11.01 | The Pittsburgh Steelers are looking to get back in the win column on Sunday against the New England Patriots. Unfortunately for the Steelers, their struggling offensive line will be without the services of its top player, David DeCastro. With starting center Maurkice Pouncey out for the year, DeCastro has become the top player protecting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. However, an ankle injury forced him to miss practice this week and he has been ruled out for the upcoming game.

Whatever.

Steelers Depot, writing in September: "Fortunately [Guy Whimper] is not being asked to be a starter in Pittsburgh, and is in fact likely not even being asked to dress."

Guy Whimper, speaking in November: "I???m willing and more than capable of coming in and helping this line out.???

So either Guy got way, way better or (more likely) we are in very bad shape right now.

That's ok, I'm ruling the Steelers out of the game against the Patriots.

Ben will be moving around like old Terry Bradshaw by the time his career is over.
