Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Willie Colon is expected to miss the entire 2010 season after suffering what doctors believe to be a torn Achilles' tendon, a source with knowledge of the situation said Monday.

Colon, who didn't miss a game the previous three seasons, likely will have season-ending surgery Wednesday. He injured the Achilles' tendon during a Monday workout and left the Steelers' facility on crutches.

For an offensive line that takes a lot of heat for being below average this is probably a Very Bad Thing.

They would probably still kick our ass.

I find that to be highly debateable SM. Giving away Holmes and not having Big Ben for 4-6 weeks changes the makeup of their team quite a bit. Also, I don't think the offense would be nearly as bad as they were when they played 2 seasons ago. Duane Brown not being a rookie helps (in his first regular season pro game no less) as well as not being completely new to a pure ZBS.

You're an optimist?
