TIME FOR OPENING NIGHT.

We've waited all year for this moment. To get a look at some of the potential new Pittsburgh Steelers as well as look at to see how the veterans have improved. It Might be Preseason, BUT IT'S STILL FOOTBALL.

And to all of the Pittsburgh Steelers fans, like the great Hank Williams Jr. would say......
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL???

HERE WE GO STEELERS HERE WE GO

that would have been a force out.

and Yes. I would STILL love that rule even if that was HOlmes.

I'm not so sure that would have been a force out though...his feet weren't staying together as he was coming down, with one going to the back of the EZ and the other to the far side. He wasn't forced sideways, where his right foot went out of bounds.

Nah, the Eagles player was actually making a play on the ball. Harrison actually prevented the WR from running his route.

SteelCityMan786
08-08-2008, 08:12 PM
INTERFERENCE!

If HArrisons was, that certainly is.

Harrison's was not pass interference period. That ball was not catchable.

Only the play that Santonio was involved with. The Ball was catchable and Santonio had no chance to catch it.

The Duke
08-08-2008, 08:12 PM

not all starters are in though....

Harrison's was not pass interference period. That ball was not catchable.

Only the play that Santonio was involved with. The Ball was catchable and Santonio had no chance to catch it.

In Harrison's case, it was a penalty...whether Pass Interference or Illegal Contact.

With Holmes, both players were going after the ball...the safety has as much a right to that ball as the WR does.

A defensive note....cover the ffing fullback near the goaline. The Browns did that to us multiple times last year.

Not really worried though considering thats primarily our backups

Didn't look like much of a Steelers fan on that lil cheap shot on Mundy. The play was over and Mundy was in a (basically) defenseless position.

Yeah... they asked him about Madden and he said he played. When they asked him the "leading" question about who he played as (expecting the Eagles), he said the Steelers because they were always his favorite.

That is the fire blitz scheme.... CB's have run responsibility. THus, they have to back of to not get locked up on runs.

hope mundy's ok

Today's 7:30 p.m. game at Heinz Field may not count in the standings, but it is anything but meaningless for Ryan Mundy. The rookie free safety will be trying to impress the coaches in his bid to make the Steelers. The Pittsburgh native will also suit up for the team he grew up cheering. He will play in front of a crowd that includes his father, mother, two sisters and grandmother. "I'm sure it will be electric," Mundy, a Woodland Hills graduate, said. "It's going to be exciting."

he must be eager to play right now
