Ugh....9 more hours.

The one plus to away preseason games for me, I at least have "NFL Yearbook: Tomlin Hire", "Steelers Kickoff" on KDKA and "Savern on Sports Beat: Steelers Edition" on FSN Pittsburgh to hold me over until kickoff. But these night games are killing me.

First team, one quarter of play....please.

Ryan Clark going against his old team as well, just from the other side. Maybe there will be some match-ups betwee Clark and Randle El. Here's a link to a story on Ryan Clark and his thoughts on his old team.

Oh yeah, clark too. Forgive me but I'm too concentrated in anthony smith winning the job that I forget the man he is competing with. Cool article thanks.

Awesome, Duke! Thanks for the heads-up! I have been checking throughout the week and it looks like they finally assigned a channel to it. I just hope the channel is online - I tried to watch the Pats/Titans game on it last night and the channel it was on was offline. Fingers crossed. :hope:

It looks to me like they're in "let's just get this shit over with" mode...not that there's anything wrong with that. Remember folks - the primary thing you want to do in the preseason, other than evaluate talent, is to get out of it without any major injuries. You think the Redskins' collective buttholes clenched when Campbell went down? A season-ending injury to their starting QB is the LAST thing they want to see.

When they start playing for real, I think they'll be ready to go, and if they aren't, then I'll worry. Until then...meh.

Yeah, you do. But the preseason games mean nothing to me - it's just rehearsal. I save my angst for when it matters. Need I remind you that in our SB season, we were 1-3 and looked horrible in the preseason? The Bengals were undefeated (I believe) last preseason - what good did it end up doing them?

You, me, and everyone else here wants to see the team play well and win these games. But if they don't, who cares? I just want everyone healthy and on the same page in Week 1.

You, me, and everyone else here wants to see the team play well and win these games. But if they don't, who cares? I just want everyone healthy and on the same page in Week 1.

I just get a little concerned because I want to see the coaching staff make good decisions.

The third down play calling has been a problem. I want to see it fixed before week 1.

The third down play calling has been a problem. I want to see it fixed before week 1.

I think it will be fixed. Though to be quite honest, I think a lot of the problems we're having on O is because of all of the shuffling on the OL. They've really had no time to gel as a unit - it's new guys starting every week. I hope that once the evaluation period is over, there will be a set group and they'll get enough playing time together to become a solid unit going into the regular season.

I don't know if the problems are major. The problem with this group is the 3rd down conversion...but...unfortunately, it's been like this for quite some time.

I'm more concerned with the offense. The OL looks out of sync. I don't know if it is the rotating of players in and out, but some of it tonight has to be that Essex is in for Smith. We need a good showing next week by the "O". If we look like this on offense next week, I will be worried.
