My wish list:
Ben looks solid
OL looks solid
One of the other RB's makes a statement (Parker isn't playing)
No injuries

Also, this is the only game I won't see, so I bought Field Pass but I'm hoping everyone here will be able to explain in detail what I'm hearing.

Does anyone have a link to a radio station streaming on the net where I can catch that game. I really wish I could watch it, but NFL Sunday Ticket doesn't include preseason.

All I am looking for in this game is for the offense to finally put something together, and to get out injury free.

http://www.nfl.com/fieldpass

This is the only alternative. The NFL policed all the stations that were streaming the game, because they want all the revenue for themselves.

The good news is that it's free for the first 7 days. I'll never use it after tonight, so I'll cancel right after the game. All they ask is a credit card in case you keep it, and they don't charge it if you don't...

some please give an update

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 07:14 PM
I'm listening...I don't know where evryoe else is.

So far, it sounds like Hines had a pass knocked away, Ben has been on target, and Verron can't run.

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 07:15 PM
Carolina has the ball now...I'll give a synopsis after the possession...

Not good...Carolina is getting big chunks of yards...inside the Steelers 20 in just 4 plays...

that just seemed too easy

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 07:23 PM
So far? Who cares? The defense will be fine, as will the ST...the big concern is Ben now, and it sounds like he has been accurate so far...

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 07:25 PM
Steelers start from our 17...

They should leave them in for the 1st half... Boost their confidence a bit.

How long are they scheduled to be in?

Suitanim

Nice! Forced fumble by Logan!

Panthers recovered.

Harison put on a big rush then the ball was tipped by Haggins...

Carolina has their 2nd string in, and they are shutting are 1st string down...this is unacceptable...

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 07:42 PM
Ben runs for a 1st down...thank you, Ben...

That's the end of the 1st QTR

geran42o
09-01-2005, 07:44 PM
wow my audio is way behind NFL.com

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 07:46 PM
Ben is trying to do this himself...running when Hines was open...not good.

We are punting.

And that will be it for the 1st team Offense. They get a grade of F for the preseason. They have 10 full days to fix the problem.

Pass to Miller for 25 yards!!!

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 07:58 PM
Batch to Morey is our first legitimate 1st down.

Who was saying Mays was better than Sean?

Miller from Batch for 30 yards!

geran42o
09-01-2005, 07:58 PM
about time they get Miller involved

Koopa
09-01-2005, 07:58 PM
holly shit! miller 29 yard catch, why the hell do they wait to throw to him when batch is out there?

Koopa
09-01-2005, 07:59 PM
batch is playing like a mad man, well it seems that way on this nfl game tracker

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 08:00 PM
Batch being out there shows that they are keeping 3 QB's. St. Pierre is behind Batch, and I can see that. Charlie started like 60 NFL games.

geran42o
09-01-2005, 08:00 PM
inside the 30 come on guys

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:02 PM
oh oh oh oh, now the wrs start catching passes. it's a conspiracy i tell you a conspiracy!

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 08:02 PM
Catch the ball, Northwestern!

BB2W
09-01-2005, 08:02 PM
Noah is not improving on his 2.8 yard average much, huh.

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 08:03 PM
Heath Miller getting a lot of love...is this for real?

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:04 PM
heath miller two catches 37 yards, they better throw to him when ben is playing cause he's making batch look like he's worth a damn

geran42o
09-01-2005, 08:04 PM
inside the 15

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 08:06 PM
Verron Haynes looks great against the 2nd string...

geran42o
09-01-2005, 08:06 PM
5 more to go. HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO

geran42o
09-01-2005, 08:07 PM
Touchdown!!!!!!!

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 08:07 PM
Herron gets in...good for him. He was on my sleeper list, and he's been good so far...

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:07 PM
GEAH! GEAH! TOUCHDOWN, bout damn time, to bad it wasn't from the first string but it's still good to see the offense get in the endzone and at least miller had a big part in it

BB2W
09-01-2005, 08:07 PM
Woot!!! :cheer: :tt: :alcohol: :beerbang:

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 08:11 PM
Logan recovers the fumble that he caused!

ngreene15
09-01-2005, 08:12 PM
Logan's having a nice game.

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:14 PM
he don't want to get cut so he's leaving it all out on the field

geran42o
09-01-2005, 08:16 PM
Way to go D

Suitanim
09-01-2005, 08:17 PM
I think Nate Washington makes the team.

I'm just gonna listen from here on out...

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:18 PM
couldn't score get it in the endzone but at least we got the lead

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:19 PM

I'm just gonna listen from here on out...

he better make the team, he's done good this pre season. i hope gibson will get some balls thrown his way. those two better make the team. it'll be a shame if they don't

ngreene15
09-01-2005, 08:19 PM
I'm still concerned with how Ben played.

Should have left him and the starters in for one more series.

BB2W
09-01-2005, 08:19 PM
"HE HATE ME" just had a nice return....

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:23 PM
damn it they are throwing all over us. oh well it's only a field goal.

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:24 PM
who gets the ball after half time?

Lyn
09-01-2005, 08:26 PM
Sorry I am late what is the score?

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:27 PM
10 to 10 half time

BB2W
09-01-2005, 08:29 PM
Carolina gets the ball first in the third quarter.

Koopa
09-01-2005, 08:30 PM
well i think we'll win week 2 for sure, we play the texans, and carr was 1 of 5 4 yards and 2 picks, he's been playing like crap all preseason and going against us will only make him look worse. so we got week 2 in the bag.

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:31 PM
IM here...I saw the first half at work!! Damn Ben was off target, happy feet, Haynes couldnt run for shiat!!

Whats up BRC??? Where do you work at?

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:39 PM
IM beginning to think we should just bench the starters and just play the 2nd string guys all year.. ;)

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:40 PM
Damn I think I'd fall over dead if Zo could actually get off of a block!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:43 PM
Damn Keisel just layed him out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I.C. Lights
09-01-2005, 08:43 PM
Jeez...I'm stuck watching the Eagles get pounded by the Jets. Jets just had like a 95 yd. int. return for TD. We can't look as bad as the Eagles do right now.

So, Ben's still struggling, huh? Let's hope he's just laying low for the preseason!

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:45 PM
Yah he's struggling alright.. overthrowing, underthrowing, throwing behind... UGH!!

Rush58
09-01-2005, 08:46 PM
Ben running is fine...Ben running when he has wide open receivers is not...

Well said.

I.C. Lights
09-01-2005, 08:48 PM
Underthrowing? That's scary. That means no cofidence / poor balance, footing or all of the above :o

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:52 PM
no confidence is what it seems ..definately happy feet.. He's trying to hard, forcing the issue as well.

I.C. Lights
09-01-2005, 08:55 PM
Oh well, I'd still rather be watching that than the Jets/Eagles!

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:55 PM
Damnit.. Carter got beat on a TD throw !!!

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 08:59 PM
Can we get ANY decent field position tonite!!!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 09:04 PM
WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That was about the craziest thing Ive ever seen, and Gibson stayed with it and picked it up after chasing the ball w/ 2 panters defenders.. plus a personal foul roughing the passer !!! 1st down inside the red zone!

TasmanianTroy271
09-01-2005, 09:13 PM
As I posted in the Steelers/Panthers thread...

"anyways, I'm going out on a limb here and guessing 21-17 us with a TD 4th quarter... Herron with an excellent game..."

:busted:

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 09:19 PM
Herron is trying his hardest..he's running hard making his bid for this team..

Rian Wallace definately soildified his spot..this guy is a hitter!

BB2W
09-01-2005, 09:27 PM
They have been throwing to Washington a lot, but I noticed a lot were incomplete.....

BRC can you tell me if they are drops or bad throws or what???

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 09:34 PM
Most the drops that occured when Ben was in were poor throws unfortunately.

Batch has been in since then and for the most part is doing ok. He's had some overthrows and a few underthrows, but he definately looked better than Ben did tonite..hell he looked better than Ben has all preseason.. and thats not saying much!!!

Washington had a chance for a TD, but was it was just outta reach in the corner of the end zone. He ran a good route, just didnt make the catch. But he's playing his heart out !

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 09:41 PM
Why in the hell isnt BSP in the game !! Unless the coaches have already made up their mind.

Koopa
09-01-2005, 09:41 PM
maybe ben is messing with all our heads and then come regular season he'll become another payton manning and tear defenses apart with his 4'2" wrs.

BB2W
09-01-2005, 09:44 PM

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 09:46 PM
OK, can we do something , 5:34 left!!! Can we get a drive and win this game !!!!

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 09:47 PM
Maybe they are trying to showcase Batch for trade purposes.... You never know.


That would be a logical assumption.. or they may be keeping batch and getting him as many reps as they can cuz he wont playmuch this season unless injury occurs. And letting BSP go ???

Rush58
09-01-2005, 09:47 PM
OK, can we do something , 5:34 left!!! Can we get a drive and win this game !!!!

That means we will have to put the ball in the endzone, right? :D

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 09:54 PM
Yeah slim chance of that happening..infact its happened so few times on offense this preseason its hard to recall !!!

BB2W
09-01-2005, 09:56 PM

BlitzburghRockCity

KRanchick got upended diving ahead for a couple extra yards, and then got rolled over on.. no word yet, but he walked off under his own power.

BlitzburghRockCity

BB2W
09-01-2005, 10:05 PM
Morey may have just taken a spot from Gibson or Washington....

BlitzburghRockCity
09-01-2005, 10:05 PM
Batch was flushed out of the pocket,nearly got sacked..ran to his left, and heaved it down field to Morey who was inside the 5 and ran in for the score!

so is maddox hurt? or they just didn't want to play him?

pitt
09-02-2005, 01:14 PM
I was hoping to see Tommy play last night. He was always on of my favorite players. So was Tomazack. I guess I have a soft spot for our backup QBs.
