Post up all your pregame and during the game talk here !! Let's see if we can make it 2-0 in preseason!

Im looking forward to seeing Hines back out on the field, seeing more of Parker & Herron in action in the backfield, and hopefully seeing more monster blocking by Chris K !

Seeing Hines on the field is one of the best parts of this game for me. I would like to see some more of Parker, Washington, Miller, McFadden, and Gibson this game.

I'm really looking forward to the return of Hines Ward, but I would really like to see the younger WR's play some more. They were very hungry to get noticed against the Eagles.....

Another one to watch is special teams. I know they won't perform like Monday, but none the less it should be interesting to see this week.

Im looking forward to Ben taking a lot more snaps. The guy's besides Ben that I want to see-

Miller- Like to see him get more chances and look a little quicker. BTW did anyone notice my prediction came true? http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=1474&page=2 He got held on the play.

Colclough- He was my favorite to take Willie's job. I still think he's a better player than Taylor.

Taylor- He's getting a lot of hype for play that isnt worthy IMO. He was passed on at will last week. He was solid not dominant like some paper said. I know Cowher is talking him up too. Hopefully he opens my eye's.

McFadden- I hope he makes an adjustment in his game soon. Instead of playing the ball he face guards and knocks the ball down without ever seeing it coming. Thus the low int totals in his college career.

Kemoeatu-The guy is a monster. Hopefully he serves up a few more pancakes :D

Keisel- I'd like to see him run with the 1st team for a few snaps. Lets see if this is the year he puts it together.

RB's Herron and Parker- hopefully they get to run behind the #1 OL. I know Parker will.

Kranchick- Must improve his blocking! If he doesnt he'll be cut. His ability as a reciever is unquestioned.

Essex- Was solid last week with pass blocking. Must improve his run blocking.

With all that said, Tivo is a wonderful thing :busted: I will watch the whole team close. Rewinding then slowmotioning through each play. :D

How long will our starting offensive unit play?

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:05 PM
Atleast thru the first quarter.. maybe just into the second, but thats all.

Rush58
08-20-2005, 08:08 PM
I am hoping for one solid drive by the starting unit.

08-20-2005, 08:08 PM
Hey, I'm watching the game through NFL.com, is the weather ugly up there causing all this sloppy play?

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:09 PM
almost intercepted by Carter, but only got 1 foot inbounds... still 4th down, phins are punting again!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:09 PM
yea chef..massive tstorms and rain caused a 1 hour delay to kickoff

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:10 PM
Damn, Ben just threw off his back foot and right into the hands of a dolphin DB!!

Rush58
08-20-2005, 08:12 PM
Ugh.... come on offense!

bigbensgirl7
08-20-2005, 08:12 PM
man this game is just looking ugly!

bigbensgirl7
08-20-2005, 08:16 PM
wow...Willie seems to be running well

ironcitychef
08-20-2005, 08:16 PM
someone needs to test Farrior and Parker tonight. Haggans being a close second as well.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:16 PM
Ben seems alittle ansy in the pocket tonite.. although the dolphin pass rush is pretty good ... Parker just had a great run that he almost broke for a score but he stumbled.

ironcitychef
08-20-2005, 08:24 PM
Seems like he isn't technique sound. Last week he chucked that one near pick cause he couldn't decide to run or throw. And you all said tonight he was off his back foot. What gives Whipple?

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:28 PM
Man parker just saved the day.. he ran backwards and lost 7 yds, then just got a swing pass and got us the first down.. so far 78 yds rushing!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:37 PM
Hines has his knee bandaged up w/ ice..although he's still in uniform and walking around, so it must be for precautions.

Rush58
08-20-2005, 08:37 PM
offense looks pretty bad.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:40 PM
Harrison is all over the field..he's having a helluva night!! Foote just recovered a fumble.. STeeler ball!

bigbensgirl7
08-20-2005, 08:46 PM
What the hell...our offense can't seem to get anything going

ironcitychef
08-20-2005, 08:47 PM
six turnovers so far? Can we get a regular game so we can evaluate talent?

bigbensgirl7
08-20-2005, 08:47 PM
yah this is definately sloppy

first string defense is out... backups are in...

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:51 PM
Sloppy play on both offenses..turnovers, dropped passes, overthrown passes... both defenses are playing tough !

Rush58
08-20-2005, 08:51 PM
Blitz, how bad is it looking on offense?

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:52 PM
OMG..another turnover.. Steeler ball!!! this is ridiculous!!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:53 PM
Ben was very antsy in the pocket, seemed to have happy feet one play and then solid the next.. Running game and run blocking is on key and doing well. Pass protection isnt the greatest tonite.

Field is pretty sloppy, alot of slipping around of players, and of course the ball is wet and muddy, not raining though. Ben just basically looked inconsistent.. i play was right on the money, the next was a poor decision or a drop by the WR.

Backups on offense are in now too.. batch is at QB

Rush58
08-20-2005, 08:55 PM
Tommy playing 3rd string?

ironcitychef
08-20-2005, 08:56 PM
what was the deal with Randle El getting so many incompletes?

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 08:59 PM
First half analysis..

Running game w/ Jerome and Willie was on key and doing pretty well overall. Parker especially, although the Bus has some very good runs considering he didnt play much. Haynes isnt doing so well right now, and did have a fumble.

WR's are dropping balls left and right but are making some good plays here and there. Steeler pass rush is on target and kickin ass..run defense is superb for the most part.. pass defense is good but they did give up a few big plays.

special teams return game stinks... coverage teams are pretty good.

ironcitychef
08-20-2005, 09:00 PM
make that 8 now! I wish I could see all this.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:00 PM
Yeah Tommy wont play till midway thru the 2nd half.. Randle el did make a few nice plays as did cedric.. but they did drop some too.. it just appears to be an off nite for the offenses.. both of them.

Steelers did recover a muffed punt and have it first down in the red zone !!!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:02 PM
Damn, batch just overthrew mays on 3rd and goal.. FG coming up.. Reed still in kicking, he missed a chip shot earlier...

26 yd attempt is GOOD!! 10-0 Steelers

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:05 PM
Alonzo Jackson still looks like he's lost.. He doesnt deserve to wear that 95 he's got on!!! Damn, he just got flagged un necessary roughness on the sack. He had a huge hit on frerotte and drove him into the ground.. 15 yd penalty.. DAMNIT!!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:09 PM
OMG !!! :rofl: feeley was rushing back up to the line w/ 8 seconds to go.. then he just walks backwards, totally oblivious to the running down game clock and time expires!! Total lack of awareness on the field !! 10-0 Steelers at halftime..

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:28 PM
Update... No tommy maddox tonite.. batch then St. Pierre.. 2nd half under way w/ a nice return by mays.. Steelers still 0-7 on 3rd down.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:29 PM
Miami fumbed the punt, Steeler ball!!!! Steelers have created 6 turnovers tonite.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:36 PM
Nice pass from Batch to Nate Washington.. this kid is pretty impressive.. first and goal at the 1

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:37 PM
TOUCHDOWN !!!!!!!!!!!! Verron Haynes, 1 yd run!

bigbensgirl7

Yah...he may definately be our little cinderella story!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:46 PM
no doubt.. I thought it would be cobb as the cinderella story, but so far, its Washington. If he keeps this up, he'll find himself as part of the 53 in september.

Game is starting to bog down again.. punt, punt, punt, UGH! still 17-0 Steelers

bigbensgirl7
08-20-2005, 09:51 PM
looks like another punt

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:57 PM
yep, run for no gain, dropped pass, dropped pass.. punt.. never ending story in most of the 2nd half. .. UGH!!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 09:59 PM
Another turnover, run down to the 30 yd line.. Steeler ball.. It aint pretty but we're getting it done.. no I take that back, its pretty downright ugly...


-----

St pierre and Noah Herron are now in the game.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 10:11 PM
Jackson just blew another sack opportunity...lets just cut him now !!!!

Hines interview right now.. said its good to be back, happy to be playing.. still alittle rusty but he said he'll be ok.

He said he was worried about the fans reaction to him being on the field..but everyone cheered and he's happy.. All seems to be well.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 10:17 PM
Barring a complete change of events..its basically over.. now its just punt after punt after punt..

08-20-2005, 10:22 PM
Is anyone else worried about Ben? All his passes are floaters or high. Cant wait to watch him next week when he'll play 3 quaters.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 10:24 PM
so much for the shut out.. Coc made a HUGE hit on 3rd down to force the dolphins to kick the FG.. 17-3 about 6 minutes to go..

Im not gonna be worried about him yet.. He only played like 2 series last game so he basically didnt even play.. tonite he did make some nice plays..it just takes time, plus he needs to get his timing back down w/ Hines too.

I'll wait and see before I get too worried.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 10:28 PM
Damn Herron is running hard!!! Very impressive !!! down to 4 minutes to go..

BlitzburghRockCity
08-20-2005, 10:33 PM
game over... Patton just picked off rosenfels.. we'll just run out the clock for the last 2 minutes.. frazier had a big sack too!!!

Damn we had a shiate load of forced turnovers tonite.. It was definately a defensive game and everyone showed up and kicked some dolphin offensive ass.

Rush58
08-20-2005, 10:35 PM

I am. No touchdowns with the 1st unit in 2 games?

SteelProven
08-20-2005, 10:43 PM
I'm really not worried about Ben becuz it's only preseason. Timing still a little off and it'll probably take till the end of the preseason to get it down. I really won't put to much thought into how Ben's playing. The Steelers are using there basic sets so there not game planning. There just calling plays and trying to get some continuity.

SteelR1
08-20-2005, 10:51 PM
The defense is certainly on point this season. Next week well see how the offense comes along.

Wouldn't it be so nice for the offense to match our defense, it would be SICK!!!!!!!!

Lets go Steelers

Prosdo
08-20-2005, 11:51 PM
The Steelers better cut Alonzo. That was just ridiculous! Willie Parker looked impressive tonight. I really like this guy and think he will see some more playing time if he keeps this up. Offense wasn't really great. I'm not too worried about Ben at the moment. He will play more the next preseason game so if it is still an issue there I might worry a little.

pitt
08-21-2005, 12:46 AM
I still see a weakness in our corners. If it hadn't been for the recievers dropping passes on their own, those long completions could of really hurt us.

melroseplace
08-21-2005, 02:39 PM
I was impressed by Parker, a little disappointed by McFadden and definitely wanted to see some Maddox action...I was starting to get frustrated with Ben quite a few times.

it was great to see Hines out there tho! when he got up from that first hit smiling I was grinning from ear to ear :D haha
