As a former player and coach in the game of football, I understand better than most that you don’t ever get caught looking ahead. Quite often, when a rivalry game was on the horizon, it would not be a bit surprising to see the fan base and media start looking ahead.

Just two weeks ago it looked like Dwyer owners were about to go on a roll but a quad injury forced him to the sidelines last week and Isaac Redman made the most of his opportunity with 147 yards on the ground.
Mike Tomlin all but ruled Antonio Brown out of Monday night's game, but he had some good news on the running backs and Troy Polamalu for the following game.
