Mike Tomlin told Suzy Kolber that Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey did not practice and has been ruled out of Super Bowl XLV.
While this is a big blow to an already suspect Steelers offensive line, Doug Legursky, Pouncey's back up, played serviceably in his place against the Jets. Not only that, but Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has already won a Super Bowl with a terrible offensive line. Such is his ability to create plays when his protection breaks down.
That said, it is definitely a big development, and a positive one for the Packers.
"I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle – victorious."
