Center Maurkice Pouncey started every game for the Steelers this season, and despite a high-ankle sprain that forced him to watch the final three quarters of Sunday's AFC championship game in street clothes, the rookie from the University of Florida said he will start Super Bowl XLV.

"Most definitely," Pouncey said when asked whether he would be playing against the Packers in two weeks in Dallas. "I had this same injury before on my other ankle and I know how to attack it. I know how to approach things. I know in my heart I'm playing in that game."

Pouncey said he knew he would not be able to return to the game as soon as the injury occurred. He said he heard a pop in the ankle after a Jets defensive lineman rolled up on him.

"It was the worst pain ever," he said.

Pouncey said he had a similar injury when he was a sophomore at Florida, and he came back to play the next game. He said he expets to hear from trainers today how badly the ankle is injured.

Lets hope so, because Legs will be eaten alive by Raji...if he can even get the snap off while that big MFer is lined up across from him. He had enough trouble snapping the ball with the Jets.

OK Chris. Now that we have practiced kissing and cuddling, we'll practice eating out...at a fancy restaurant.

I would advocate going shotgun every snap if Legs is the starter.

I love Pouncey's heart, in contrast to certain other players from yesterday's games, but I will be shocked if he'll be able to play effectively in two weeks.

Yeah...I actually thought he broke his leg when I saw the replays.
