Steelers 34, Redskins 3

Well so far from the stats, looks like a nice return by fast willie and good pass to Hines for 11 yds, and then 1,2,3, and we're punting....

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 07:15 PM

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 07:21 PM
Washington has to punt

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 07:24 PM
the skins have a good defense, so this will be no cake walk on either side of the ball...

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 07:25 PM
nice completion to ARE

4th and 1 and u settle for the FG !! victory for our defense!! but they got torched on that drive.

BlitzburghRockCity

Parker is doing VERY well so far at returning kicks!!! maybe we're onto something here ....

SteelCityMan786

atleast we moved the ball on that drive and didnt stall out like the others..thats progres w/ the first unit.

Koopa
08-26-2005, 08:03 PM
mayne, thank god we got a great d. cause i don't know like our offense. i'm a little late so i'm just referring to our first couple of drives, i don't like that we run 3 in a row and then it's 3rd and 8th. i don't see how we got better, and i'm starting not to like randle el, it seems everytime ben throws to him it goes over him, it's like the ball don't like him, cause ben does alright throwing to ward. i say the hell with el and put cedrick in or at least attempt to use our first round pick. damn i love polamalu, he's great. williams is worthless to me, i want either ricardo or byrant in there. parker is tight i love fast backs i'm tired of these power slower then crap rb no disrepect to the bus. damn and ben seems retarded sometimes he locks on one guy and won't even look around to see if anyone else is open we had the touchdown if he would've threw it to Kreider. oh well thank god it's just pre season, hopefully they'll get their shit together cause the offense looks like crap to me, the only bright spot is willie parker.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:04 PM
sweet!! good stand on defense!!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:06 PM
they just said bettis has a calf injury, no news yet....

I think the timing w/ El is definatley off tonite, but its been pretty good in camp... we'll need everybit of El, Wilson and Ward every game to have success. Wilson will get his shot, and if El wins the starting job and falters, Wilson will get the nod before too long.

Willie williams is actually have a good preseason and is playing well for the most part..he's the only vet we have in the secondary besides townsend, so he'll have to step up.. but one of the other 3 will probably take over midway thru the season if they keep progressing.

Ben's stinking up the place. He can't hit any reciever. :o

BlitzburghRockCity

damn, our starting offense is just not in sync at all.............. :chair:

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:15 PM
Ben's stinking up the place. He can't hit any reciever. :o

is he off target for the most part, or is it the WR's dropping passes ?

Koopa
08-26-2005, 08:15 PM
let me apologize in advance sometimes i get to much into the game and i sometimes get heated with mistakes and i let it all out by talking trash about the players, like i'm probably gonna be doing with el, he has yet to show me he deserves that starting spot.

SteelerSal
08-26-2005, 08:17 PM

Way off target. He has happy feet.

Rush58
08-26-2005, 08:18 PM

I agree. Too much bounce.

Koopa
08-26-2005, 08:18 PM
:crying01: why does are offense suck so much? and why isn't willie running the ball? damn it i hate this. :banging: they keep throwing and running on us.

SteelerSal
08-26-2005, 08:18 PM
Our defense has to be tired with all the 3 and outs.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:19 PM
Whats he problem!!!!! I know the skins have a good defense,but man, calm down Ben.. calm down!!

Something happened to Ben the last 6 or so weeks of last season, and its carried over to this season.

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:23 PM
we can't get much going at all. I kindof wonder if Cowher will keep our starters in a little longer to see if they can get anything going

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:23 PM
damnit!!! the NFL network is swapping thru all the games except the STeelers!!! WTF !!!!

He better.

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:25 PM
Iagree...I know they said only the first half...but something has to give and these guys need to figure something out and Ben needs to get some confidence

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:25 PM
Something happened to Ben the last 6 or so weeks of last season, and its carried over to this season.


He hit the rookie wall and was just plain exhausted!!! and yeah, he hasnt been in sync much yet all preseason!!! maybe he's holding back :rolleyes:

08-26-2005, 08:25 PM
4th and inches!! We need a big stop.

Off ain't the word to describe Ben right now. :D

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:28 PM
well its time to see Ben and the offense respond.. its tied up, this is the first game we're really having to fight in..the first 2 were cake walks...

SteelerSal
08-26-2005, 08:29 PM
I have to keep telling myself, its just preseason!

08-26-2005, 08:31 PM
Finally, we throw some passes. lol

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:34 PM
Hail mary picked off

Rush58
08-26-2005, 08:34 PM
We are simply not throwing the ball enough. When we throw the ball, it's on obvious passing downs. Ben can't get into a rhythm like that. They need to open it up more. Stop running the ball 1st and 2nd down and then passing it.

Koopa
08-26-2005, 08:34 PM
we should come out throwing, ben can't get into a rythm when they run 3 straight times and throw once. i do not like how this is going, damn i sure hope this doesn't carry into the regular season

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:35 PM
83 is Chris Doering... and yeah ARE isnt having a good nite!! its just preseason..its just preseason..but damn, I'd like to see something good on offense besides Willie!

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:35 PM
I agree Rush...we are just putting Ben in third and long situations too much

SteelCityMan786
08-26-2005, 08:36 PM
Better go kick some a$$ in the 2nd half. Our O needs to score. :chair:

SteelerSal
08-26-2005, 08:36 PM
We have a game and a half for the offense (Ben) to get his/their sh*t together.

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:36 PM
I know cowher said he really wanted to see what the running game could do tonite..but damn, keep ben and the starters in there for a few series in the 3rd quarter, and let him come out firing.. Right on Koopa!!

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:36 PM

Not really...because they are not going to get much more playing time

#83, I was talking about Heath Miller, when he finally caught a ball.

SteelCityMan786
08-26-2005, 08:38 PM
Probably nothing more than the 1st series is what they'll play

I.C. Lights
08-26-2005, 08:38 PM
Well, on the bright side. Did anyone see how it took 3 or 4 skins to take down Miller?

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:38 PM
yeah, the last preseason game, ur lucky if u see the starters for 1st quarter... but at this point, they're looking like they need alot more than that... but we have too many young guys who need time too.. its a catch 22

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:39 PM
Well, on the bright side. Did anyone see how it took 3 or 4 skins to take down Miller?
Yah Miller was tough

SteelCityMan786
08-26-2005, 08:39 PM
That was good work by Miller, If he can do more like that, We might see the game become WIDDDDDDDDDDDDE OPEN in the Steelers favor.

Rush58
08-26-2005, 08:39 PM
It's hard to make an evaluation on the offense when we are running the ball too much. I am a bit concern with our run defense. We do not look fired up for this game at all.

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:40 PM
yeah, the last preseason game, ur lucky if u see the starters for 1st quarter... but at this point, they're looking like they need alot more than that... but we have too many young guys who need time too.. its a catch 22
I say in this game they give the starters 2 more possessions and then put in the young guys...next game we will hardly see our starters

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:40 PM
this is the toughest game for the vets too, because they know they have to play alot, in a meaningless game, and they are worried of getting hurt, and just wanna get off the field...

bigbensgirl7
08-26-2005, 08:42 PM
yes...true, but our offense really needs the reps

Rush58
08-26-2005, 08:43 PM
yes...true, but our offense really needs the reps


I hope those "reps" are not run, run, and then pass. If so, we are not going to see much production from the offense in the second half.

SteelCityMan786
08-26-2005, 08:48 PM
Our O does need reps. They didn't even get a possesion till after they went up 14-0 v.s. Philly.

We wont see Parker anymore tonight, Cowher said he is his only healthy back. Sounds like he's inching closer to "starter".

SteelCityMan786
08-26-2005, 08:53 PM
No Easy Yards D!!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
08-26-2005, 08:53 PM
yeah i agree.. we cant risk him...he's got good reps in the first 3 games, we know what he can do.. give it to Herron in the second half and let him go to town!!

ok, i see our defensive backups are in now too

Rush58
08-26-2005, 08:54 PM

Koopa
08-26-2005, 08:57 PM
damn are second unit defense sucks, i've seen two games this preseason, cause i only get to see what's on national tv and they don't look good period. old ass burnel and their third back is punking us. oh well unless we can stop them it's pretty much over.

He's right. I'm am very confident that the score would be extremely different if this were a reg. season game.

yeah dude, we keep it real here... we always have fun on SF, especially on gameday..

Morey wont make this team as WR, but he's still has a shot as ST, and spencer gets what he wants alot of the time for his crew,and morey is good on ST..

nah...I don't think there is an excuse for how poorly they have been playing.

JerseySTEEL
08-26-2005, 10:41 PM
Well,considering the skins kept there starting defense longer then we did almost a full qtr more, just shows they wanted this game. and with the lack of starting RBs on our side we rely didn't have much to work with. Ben has that high lob to deal with, but i loved the 51 yard run by my man Willie.

I can overlook the running back being alittle off becuz of the injuries and the skins have a good DL and LB's and it being preseason..alittle bit.. but Ben, man comon, he hasnt done much of anything in 3 preseason games.. We all the games dont count and all that but I'd like to see the starting offense score atleast 1 damn TD in the preseason

figg
08-26-2005, 11:02 PM
Ben sucked again! He missed open recievers missed Kreider wide open at the goal line and threw more high passes. The OL gave him time he just didnt get it done. I have no idea why Cowher didnt give him 1 series to start the 3rd qtr :rolleyes:

I don't think Big Ben sucked. I think the offense needs to call more pass plays, especially back-to-back. There are too many run, run and then pass on 3rd and long. The ratio between pass and run needs to be more fluid.

08-27-2005, 08:00 AM
Three areas of offensive concern...Ben's off target throws, Randle El's hands of stone, and Ward always being 1/2 yard short of the sticks. What gives with this kinda rust going into the last week of preseason?

Question, did you watch the game,listen on the radio,or watch 2 helmets on the screen of your computer? My guess one of the last two for you to make a comment like that.

Maddox and St.Pierre threw far better passes than Ben. I have'nt seen Ben throw a good pass since week 13 of last season. :o

Yeah, I watched the game. The problem I see for the Steelers is that the running tendency is way too much. I think it's time the Steelers change their philosophy up a bit and throw more consecutive pass attempts. When the backups came in the game, there seem to be more of an emphasis to pass the ball. You can see Big Ben start to warm up when we finally threw the ball on consecutive downs, but it was 25 seconds or so left in the 1st half. :rolleyes:

I agree they could have called a better game for him. Also there were a few drops and Mays didnt come back for the ball on the curl. At least thats what the PG said.

The production problems of that offense were not all on Roethlisberger's shoulders, as was evident on the next series when two of his receivers failed him. Cedrick Wilson, who has looked good in practice all summer, let one pass on a crossing route clang off his hands. On the next play, Lee Mays ran a medium hook but did not come back for the ball and the pass was easily broken up. http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/05239/561203.stm

Figg, I agree with what you said. I think this is all part of not emphasizing the passing game enough. We need to establish the passing game before we run the football. I don't see us pounding teams into submission like last season. Our opponents, this season, will be better prepared for our running attack. I think it's up to our coaching staff to get the passing game up to par with our running attack. So far, they haven't done that.
