Chances of a Win on Sunday Dimming

With evidence mounting that Aaron Smith will not play against the Giants, we cannot help but recall another instance of when the heralded rushing defense of the Steelers went into a key game without Mr. Smith and was humbled.

We have no doubt that, whatever the situation, Aaron Smith is doing the proper thing; but the feeling here is that without him on the field Brandon Jacobs' day is going to be significantly easier.

On the other hand, with Santonio Holmes out of Sunday's contest one can hope that Limas Sweed will have more than a few balls thrown his way.
