Several people have asked if we could bring back

I decided to create this new form as I am now a parent with Cerebral Palsy and had a child in Nov. of 2012. I would like to have other parents who have Cerebral Palsy and are raising a child or children share their experiences here.

the Friday Night Open Thread. I had moved the event to Saturday mornin , but after minimal success, I decided to bring it back to Friday night — with a slight twist.I liked the Saturday Six-Pack theme, so I decided to just take the six questions and move them to Friday night. Say hello to Friday Night Six-Pack of Steelers Questions and open thread!The rules haven’t changed...Quick rundown of the ground rules.I’ll ask at least four questions strictly related to the Steelers.The rest of the questions could be about anything.Be respectful.Have fun talking about the Black-and-gold.That’s it! With that out of the way, it’s time to get this party started. Hey, don’t act like you’ve never done a little Friday night drinking. Here goes:1. Who wins the following games:Cleveland @ Tampa BayNew Orleans @ BaltimoreCincinnati @ Kansas City2. Are you now a believer in the Steelers? If not, explain what would need to take place before you believe again. 3. OVER/UNDER number of TD passes Patrick Mahomes has vs. the Bengals: 34. Predict the winner of the Steelers’ next three games:Week 8 - vs. ClevelandWeek 9 - at BaltimoreWeek 10 - vs. Carolina (TNF)5. Clearly fines don’t change Vontaze Burfict’s behavior. If you were Roger Goodell, and try to be as unbiased as possible, what would your punishment for Burfict be? Explain your reasoning.6. The trade deadline is looming. If you were to draw up a REALISTIC trade, who would be coming and going? No matter what, always remember...HERE WE GO STEELERS!PODCASTS Inconsistency might be the best way to describe the young NFL career of Josh Rosen."I still think he's improving ," coach Steve Wilks. "It's hard to say in that game (a 17-3 loss to Detroit on Sunday), but I still think he's progressing, moving forward."But as he often does when discussing his rookie quarterback, Wilks qualified his praise."When you look at some of the opportunities that he had, we have to do a much better job of really going through our progression and not trying to force a lot of throws," Wilks said. "Sometimes there are check-downs underneath that we need to look at. We need to see the rotation of the safeties as far as cover two, single-high and those things."Then, Wilks added, "I think he's doing a good job."Rosen's passing statistics are near the bottom of the list of NFL starters. He's completed 55 percent of his passes for 1,910 yards with 10 touchdowns and 12 interceptions."I definitely need to throw to our team a lot more in all facets Jon Bostic Jersey ," Rosen quipped when asked about his accuracy issues.Backup Mike Glennon, watching from the sidelines, sees Rosen's growth, though."Obviously some weeks are better than others. That's just part of being a rookie," Glennon said, "but I think some of the most valuable things is the experience he's getting. Really, that's just irreplaceable. Overall, no matter what the results are, he is improving. That's just how valuable those reps are."He's done some good things and some plays he'd like to have back but I think he's seeing the field better and he is growing as the season progresses."Rosen, speaking to reporters after practice Wednesday Ryan Switzer Jersey , didn't want to assess his growth as a quarterback through those last 10 games as a starter."That's kind of up to you guys. I'm just trying to go and win football games," he said. "I haven't done as much of that as I would've liked to this year. We've got three left, but the growth and development, that's all in your guys' columns."Arizona is 3-7 since Rosen took over as starter four weeks into the season and 3-10 overall, tied for worst in the NFL.Rosen's efforts have been hampered by the shifting cast of characters around him. Arizona has six offensive linemen on injured reserve. The only player remaining from the unit that began the season is rookie center Mason Cole, and he only got the job because A.Q. Shipley blew out a knee in training camp.Rosen will have three rookies starting on the offensive line when the team plays the Falcons in Atlanta on Sunday."I don't want to say it hurts him," Wilks said. "Is there inconsistency there? Yes, but Josh, as he and I spoke the other day, he's just got to do a much better job of keeping his eyes down the field and not worry about the rush because when he does that Hines Ward Jersey , he's pretty effective."Rosen also must deal with a thin receiving corps that has little experience beyond Larry Fitzgerald. Rosen lost his good friend and one of his favorite targets, Christian Kirk, to a season-ending foot injury. Wide receiver Chad Williams missed the Detroit game with a hamstring injury and didn't practice Wednesday."We're bringing in new guys and just seeing who can play," Rosen said. "I think at this point in the year it's, if anything, the intensity of practice is picking up a little bit because there's competition at every position all over the field."He said all the changes in personnel are "tough because we haven't been winning games, but it's football. It's a physical sport. Injuries and all this stuff happen all the time. It's just that the degree happens to be a little bit more here this particular year."Throughout your football life, you're always faced with adversity in different forms and fashions. It just happens to be a little bit more. I've got to buck up and get ready just a little bit more."Notes: Wilks said DT Robert Nkemdiche would undergo surgery Thursday to repair a torn ACL. ... RB David Johnson (quadriceps) and S Budda Baker (knee) did not practice Wednesday. Fitzgerald had a veteran's day off.
