M. Pouncey (US Presswire)Posted by Andy Benoit

Devastating news for the Steelers: center Maurkice Pouncey is out for Super Bowl XLV. The rookie Pro Bowler suffered a high left ankle sprain when Jets linebacker Bryan Thomas inadvertently rolled up on his leg during the AFC Championship. As we wrote earlier on Wednesday, Pouncey is on crutches and in a hard cast.

Guard Chris Kemoeatu spilled the beans  about Pouncey’s status. “We are definitely sad that he won’t be able to be with us in the Super Bowl,” Kemoeatu told Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “Definitely I feel bad for him. We just have to win it for him.”

Doug Legursky, a third-year pro who was undrafted coming out of Marshall, will once again fill in. Legursky and Ben Roethlisberger had trouble with their snap exchange against New York. They now have two weeks to get that in order.

Pouncey’s absence hurts the offensive line’s mobility in the run game – a critical factor given that the way to attack Green Bay’s powerful front three is to force their 325-plus-pounders to play laterally. On the bright side, the Steelers at least won’t have to deal with the distraction of addressing Pouncey’s status every day for the next two weeks.

Steelers Pro Bowl C Pouncey out for Super Bowl

I find all this negitive Ben talk interesting and yet Mike Vick is a convicted criminal that has done hard time. Why aren't he high and mighty still protesting every game he plays. He's now getting endorsements, how can that be? It's amazing how winning seems to change peoples opinions. But what I find more interesting is the fact that Mark Sanchez was arrested in college and charge with sexual assult. Google it on NBC Sports in 2006. He paid bail of $200,000 and noone talks about that.  HMMMMM wonder why?

If Ben's a raper, how come she only took him to civil court? FAME and MONEY! 
There you go. You are a perfect example of an uneducated moron that doesn't know the difference between civil court and criminal court or why a woman would go civil and not criminal.   But since I'm a great guy I'll be happy to educate you a little for once in your life... and I'll keep it simple since I know that childrens books is about as far as it goes for you when it comes to understanding anything...

Moron. To be convicted in criminal court a person must be found guilty "beyond a reasonable doubt".  Filthy rich and famous people like Ben hire the best law firms in North America to represent them.  These law firm specialize in creating and proving doubt even when there really isn't any. 

In Civil court only most of the evidence has to be against somebody, it's much easier to convict.  Furthermore although the girl doesn't have money because it's civil court and if she wins her likelihood of seeing money is outstanding, lawyers are willing to work on commission so it could technically cost her zero dollars to pursue action against Ben in civil court.

There are a lot of people not found guilty in criminal court that lose in civil court or settle out of court.  Kobe Bryant is one perfect example.  Michael Jackson is another perfect example.  Even Stallworth who pleaded guilty and served 3 weeks in jail settled out of court at the same time as his plea.  Even though "experts" said he could have "beat it" he didn't bother because 3 weeks in jail wasn't worth fighting and he knew he would lose much more in civil court.

Were you one of the idiots that believed Michael Jackson when he said he didn't rape those little boys, just because he was never convicted of doing so?  Hummmmmm... didn't it bother you a little bit that he admitted getting under the covers naked with little boys but supposedly didn't touch them??

Using your logic, if Michael Jackson was alive you would be ok sending your little boy over to his house.  That terrifies me.... but actually no it doesn't..  you probably don't have kids and can't relate to any of this...

Steelers Pro Bowl C Pouncey out for Super Bowl

I realy like the Steelers, and all year have not bet on a game. but I am temped to bet on this year's
Super Bowl.

However, upon second thought, I cannot bet the Steelers, because it is obvious the best and toughest
quarter back ever is Arron Rogers of the Greenbay Packers.

What did the Steelers ever do to you to make you so bitter. "inbred" !! Very original. And by the way, who are "those" college girls ? I thought that the situation involved one underage drunk woman, which he wasn't charged with raping. I guess the NY papers have more information about all these women.
The initial story was about Pouncey and his missing out on  the SB. Why is this shite about Ben in here anyway? I thought that even someone deranged enough to like the Yankees, would be able to figure that out. There are enough other stories about the soon to be three-time SB winning QB.

Devastating news for Pouncey. The Steelers are used to playing in Super Bowls. They'll likely be fine. But it's this kid's first chance to play in a Super Bowl, and he might miss out on it. And it's no small feat to play center on an offensive line as a rookie. The center calls out the protections and schemes. He spots the mike. He's a traffic cop of sorts. To do all that (while making the All Pro team and going to a Super Bowl) as a rookie is staggering.

I love people like you who think their teams are chock full of men that are free and clear of all wrong doing.  Everyone knows your dear Yankees are clean too.  It is this simple.  Ben was wrong and people here do not condone his behavior.  Had people quite infuriated to tell you the truth.  I also do not condone Ray Ray's accessory to murder or any other person that feels they are above the law.  All we are doing is rooting for a team.  A team that happens to win more than any other, which is why douche bags like you have to throw stones and live in a world where only their teams are on their best behavior? Yeah, right.

Has the Steelers organization actually released that he's not playing or are they only going by a teammate's comments?

Steelers Pro Bowl C Pouncey out for Super Bowl

well ... well .... well 
This dude said he came back from the same injury in like 72 hours one time.  On the heels of all the Cutler controversey,
I think he was trying to rush back with a lot of wishful thinking. 
This is devastating.  Might we see another Super Bowl safety??? 

GO PACK GO
