I'm in my seat after doing the pre-, pre-game show on ESPN-970 and this place looks ready to go.
The NFL did oversell the game, however, and is offering the fans who did not get seats three times the face value as compensation. That's a crime. You come here, spend money on the flight, hotel, days off work and can't get into the game? Money can't compensate you for that.
The Steelers surprisingly did not activate Dorian Brooks on the 45-man roster today. He's inactive. It leads me to the question as to why they would even make the move with Pouncey if they weren't going to activate Brooks?
It's nice for Brooks, though. He makes a bigger paycheck for being on the active roster, so maybe it's a gesture by the team to get a guy who's been on their practice squad all season a little more money - at the league's expense.
Also down are Batch, Dwyer, Butler, Chris Scott, Steve McLendon, Aaron Smith and Jason Worilds.
Frank Zombo will start for the Packers in place of Erik Walden at right outside linebacker.
Walden is down.
