Pittsburgh Steelers Notes, Quotes 2008-09-27
--G Kendall Simmons' wife gave birth Tuesday night to their third daughter, so that won't keep him from playing against the Ravens. Simmons said last week that he would be with his wife, Celesta, for their daughter's birth, even if it meant missing a game.


--QB Ben Roethlisberger sounded surprisingly upbeat, not to mention standing upright, after he was sacked nine times in Philadelphia and on pace for 64 this season.

"It doesn't concern me," he said of the pass protection, or lack thereof. "I think people made a lot out of it. I am standing here and we are good to go and we move on."

--The Steelers are first in the AFC with a plus-five in turnover ratio. They have eight takeaways and lost only three.

--The Steelers have allowed just four 100-yard runners in their past 69 games, including the postseason.

BY THE NUMBERS: .722 -- Steelers' winning percentage at home since the 1970 NFL merger, best in the league.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "There is a concern of the cumulative effect of getting hit. I'm not willing to use the word skittish." -- Coach Mike Tomlin, on QB Ben Roethlisberger's demeanor in the pocket after getting sacked nine times and hit many others in Philadelphia.
