Trainer Tomlin always says it has to be the next man up, so we're doing a very excellent job of replacing, and I'm fairly sure we can keep it up.

"(But) every person's fairly good, because we've got to progress. As a group, we can't get down after just one activity, even though it was a considerable activity. We just have to keep forcing through this, because we have more activities to come. (And) we have to do what we can as a protection.''

Id Lewis and his group members examine out the rankings, it reveals the Pittsburgh steelers (6-4) are two activities behind the Birds (8-2) in the AFC Northern with a department activity at Cleveland Weekend mid-day.

"But we know they're going to be ready for us. They always provide us with a excellent activity, so we have to be ready and ready for them, too.

"We don't really discuss being behind the Birds or anything like that. We know where we are, and we know we can't get too far in the department behind those people. We have to try to win the department, because that will help us in the playoff competition. We know that, so we have to win out.''

The Pittsburgh steelers might have to do that with Charlie Set, their No. 3 qb, operating the violation.
