For those who can't watch the game, some quick notes

-Sepulveda kicked his first to about the 5 yard line, then a re-kick only to about the 20
-Ike Taylor and a Giant's receiver that I can't remember both were ejected for throwing punches after a play
-Ben just under threw Wallace deep and was intercepted

Overall I would give us a two series grade of a D- I don't know who said Ben looks solid,but get your eyes checked. Wallace had 4 steps ahead of hios man, and Ben didn't even have the Arm strength to toss it 35 Yds...YIKES! Also, our Inside O-Line blocking is just laughable. I mean TWO times in 4 snaps 2 Gaints went untouched. Our Defense is okay, but the Gaints are playing without 8 starters. 4 of their starters tonight have NEVER ever played in a regular season game in their lives. So take our defense with a major grain of salt.

Don't know what game you're watching but it is NOT the Steelers game. Cause our O-Line has been SH!T!! 3 times now when Mendy has run, 3 Giants D-Linemen were 7 yards into our back field before Mendy even got the ball.

I have been against Redman but he is changing my mind. He should have been in there on those last few plays. Lefty is the only one who can throw the ball 68 yards on a rope to Wallace though. Not sure Dixon has that kind of arm and Ben sure doesn't. But he is so slow back there. I don't know what I think. I think Ben is a freakin idiot for getting his butt suspended.

I'm with you on this. Rooney said he wanted the Steelers to get young players on the field faster and I think these two young receivers might be a way of doing that. ARE only has so much upside, but the rookies could really be a big hit.

A lot of good signs. I think it's safe to say that we have tremendous talent on the bench. Our 2nd and 3rd stringers are players for sure. This is the second week in a row to where our bench outplayed their bench.

Real quick before I go back to watching.

Ben looked crisp. He seemed fluid and that pass to Randle El within the redzone was tight. One of the first times I actually saw him rifle it up there in the pocket. WAS SO AWESOME TO SEE 7 in there!

Again, we put ourselves into TOO MANY 3rd and longs. A couple of sweep plays on the edges that didn't look good. Also a reverse that was stuffed by Tuck.

Redman looks outstanding. I think this kid secured a spot with only the 2nd pre-season game. Had nice runs with the first unit. Pouncey was also pushing people upfield.

Leftwhich was throwing strikes out there. Actually led Wallace on a BEAUTIFULLY thrown deep ball. Give him time and Lefty can deliver.

The Steelers coaching staff has a tough choice because Dixon looked just as sharpe. Pretty much hit every pass I've seen him throw with accuracy too.

Troy needs to find his legs but other than that, he's crazy as usual.

Need to see more from Mendenhall. Not sold.

Lovin' Antonio Brown back there on kicks. Looks like Logan is odd man out at this point.

SteelKnight

Two plays in a row. He could move up the depth chart fast if he keeps playing like this weekly.

Not that Dixon has had to look great the past few series, but it looks like he is making a effort to not run at all. Even on 3rd and very short where it might be smart for us to do so. Looks as if the steelers are just doing tradional type run calls.

I didn't like that conservative play with Dixon towards the end but I guess a win is good. I wanted to see his passing ability.

Hard to call out who really shined. Cause even Ben and Lefty looked average. I guess I would say our run-tackling and open field tackling sucks. For the reason I LOVE players like Antonio Brown and S.Sylvester, which is their GREAT Energy. Is the reason why I question the Likes of Jason Worilds and believe it or not, Ziggy Hood, and that is playing with NO Energy at all. Don't wanna crusify them cause this is just pre-season games. But a TRUE player will play all-out/Balls-out in EVERY game. A TRUE Football player doesn't see any difference at all from a Pre-season game, and the " Super Bowl "...He plays just as hard in either. I don't see
that in Worilds, and Hood..( Recently, I have in the past )...so I'm not too worried about Ziggy. But Jason better grow a pair Inbetween his legs real soon.

I thought all the units looked solid. Of course, the first team needs more work. The pass protection is still so-so but they were better than last week. People were in Ben's face at that point of the INT but Ben threw a duck that looked to slip out of his hands.

Also, can ANYONE cover Mike Wallace? The dude simply blasts by EVERYONE with ease.

Also, Mendy and that spin makes me royalty pissed off. Mendy isn't showing much for me as much as it pains me to say it..

I like Brown too, but I think Worilds will be fine. Going from DE to LB is no easy task for these guys. Not to mention he is behind, because of OSU school schedule.

Oh yeah same for me....im really not impressed with our RB overall.Redman is the only consistent one right now and the way Mendy has been playing I dont see any reason for not keeping 5 RB in the final 53(4 RB - 1 FB/RB)

BTW. Dixon looked much better than Vick. Vick is an idiot who still can't understand offenses and read defenses. He sucks. I still want to see Dennis sit in the pocket and throw the deep ball.

yea mendy hasnt been looking to consistent and its really making me angry because we passed on Chris Johnson to take him instead. redman appears to be our best back and i would love to see him split carries right down the center with mendy come week 1
