I try! Need to keep tab on what the Rivals are doing...in the case of the Bungals, not much. They look about as good as my Browns have...which is a very sad state of affairs right now. Here's to hoping the Vikings put a hurting (on the scoreboard) over the Steelers.

Unless one of the Steelers fans get's excessively stupid, I will (try to) limit any smack talk. We need to actually beat you guys before I'd feel right about talking smack. And not just once in a blue moon either.

With that being said, I will make honest football criticisms if they are warranted.

That's one way to avoid getting Ben killed, quick outs to the TE.

Ben shouldn't have thrown that ball, IMO. Almost an INT

If he was going to throw it, throw it away....

Why is that funny? I missed the beginning of the game and NFL.com says http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/playbyplay?game_id=29821&displayPage=tab_play_by_play&week=PRE3&season=2008

that he started the game.

Oh ok that's wierd. Why does NFL.com think Dixon started.

xfl2001fan
08-23-2008, 07:14 PM
Your defense looks good against a team not exactly known for passing the ball well...who is starting it's backup QB. I'll hold further reservations.

***************
Not sure what's going on with NFL.com...probably somebody just wants to stir up some talk or confused which team was starting it's backup QB.

You know, part of the reason why I and many other Steelers fans don't post in here is because you are here every single week taking over the thread. It's great that you're watching the game, but this thread is supposed to be for STEELERS fans to talk about the STEELERS game. It's not supposed to be insult-filled and filled with crap that has nothing to do with the game.

He and mahan look about even.

Though on the whole, the line does look a little better this year... not much, but a little.

I'd have to disagree. It's obvious we definitely need to find a better option at C, but I think Mahan played better overall than Hartwig. There's a reason he was cut by the Panthers.

Halftime Pros/Cons.

+The Linebackers
+The D-Line
+The Defense as a whole.


-The Offensive Line sucks...again.
-Ben looks shaky
-Ward and Holmes...where are you?
-I think we Surrendered the Run Game too soon. Willie was just starting to find some room.
-Rashard's Fumble

X-Terminator
08-23-2008, 08:34 PM

Cause and effect. Ben has missed some easy throws tonight though, on the rare occasions he had more than 1 second to pass.

Edman
08-23-2008, 08:40 PM
And BTW, I think the 3rd consecutive bad performance of Not so Marvelous Smith is more proof that he shouldn't be rewarded a new contract.

He's past his prime and should be let go.

Too much pop at times - that's been the knock on him his whole career. When he needs to take a little bit off his throws, like that one to Baker, he just doesn't. It doesn't excuse Baker though - he has to make that catch.
