Posted 20 hours ago

Coach Mike Tomlin discusses some issues on the eve of the third preseason game, against the Atlanta Falcons at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 27 at Heinz Field:

Q. Is it fair to say that the bar is set higher for this preseason game than it has been for the previous two?

A. No question, because there has been more detailed time spent on preparation. We worked a lot on situational football and developed game plans in that area, so quite frankly we can expect the performance to be greater in that area.

Q. Looking back at the Steelers first two preseason games, how can a team look so good against the Eagles so soon after looking so bad against the Redskins?

A. Thats the nature of preseason football, unfortunately in some instances. The big thing is that we continue to be a team on the rise, that our arrow continually points up, both individually and collectively. So far it has, but thats not saying much though because that first performance left us with nowhere to go but up.

Q. Rashard Mendenhallhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/rashard-mendenhall/3e1ac879-3146-46f4-946b-216532a371b1/) seems to be having a terrific preseason so far?

A. He has, and its just the natural maturation process of a guy. He happens to be a wily, 24-year-old veteran at this point. Hes improving in all areas, hes got a desire to be a complete player as we have the desire for him to be. Hes working hard at it daily.

Q. What should fans be paying attention to in this game against the Falcons?

A. The situational football element of this game will be an interesting one. I imagine both teams will prepare situationally, be it third-down, red-zone, two-minute, short-yardage, goal-line. You should see quality action in those areas from both teams.

Q. Is this the most extensive game-planning so far during the preseason?

A. Yes, and in some cases the only game-planning when you talk about some elements of situational ball.

Q. Why has Jerricho Cotcheryhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/jerricho-cotchery/915e6a52-d1db-4618-975a-8a098e1d0d82/) been able to fit in so well so quickly?

A. Hes an easy guy to get to know. Hes an easy guy to get along with. Hes singularly focused like a lot of men on our team. Hes just here to win and put his hand in the pile to contribute in any form or fashion. Thats very evident when you get to know him, and thats why I think he has fit in so easily.

Q. What skill-set has Tony Hillshttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/tony-hills/51813d18-0a30-437e-b0bf-5ddb1517ba53/) shown to make you believe he can handle that right guard job?

A. More than anything, he has been consistently aggressive this camp and preseason. Hes a guy who appears to have his game coming together. Hes becoming a mature veteran player. Hes been here a number of years now, and he looks like hes a guy whos tired of watching.

Q. Will the Falcons represent the stiffest competition of the preseason?

A. I imagine they will, and not only from a quality of player standpoint but also from a preparation standpoint and the amount of time we should expect to see their quality people. It should be a stiff test for us.

Q. What kind of challenge does Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan represent?

A. Hes a battle-tested guy. Hes mature beyond his years, a top-quality player. He can make any throw on the field. Hes got nerves of steel I think that nickname Matty Ice is well deserved. Hes a quality player at a big-time position, and hes one of the main reasons why their program is so exciting right now.

Q. Do you expect a lot of rhythm passing from Ryan?

A. I think so. Hes got an awesome rapport with Roddy White. I think the last time we played those guys, they connected on 13-or-so passes, so we can anticipate that. But he has other weapons. He has Tony Gonzalez, a legendary tight end, and hes a got a big first-round wide receiver in Julio Jones. So hes going to spread the ball around and find some rhythm and include a lot of people in the attack.

Q. Running back Michael Turner is a tough guy to get on the ground?

A. Hes got a small strike-surface, as they say in the business. Hes 5-foot-10, 247 pounds, and he runs behind his pads. Hes very patient in terms of hitting the holes in some of their zone-blocking schemes. Hes a top-quality runner.

Q. Does Lawrence Timmonshttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/lawrence-timmons/afc86dd7-633e-4e37-a4da-5f089a96b666/) have the best closing speed of any linebacker youve ever coached?

A. I had a guy in Tampa who wore jersey No. 55, another Florida State man who was pretty good at closing on people, too. I often mention Derrick Brooks to Lawrence.

Q. What are your plans for the first round of cuts?

A. After we come out of this third game, were going to get down to 80, and were going to do it sooner rather than later. We dont run away from the necessary evils that are a part of this process. But more than anything we need to be a team that continues to move forward and identify the guys are going to be doing it with us.

Q. Has the tight end position come into view yet, or is that still a question mark?

A. I think its continuing to reveal itself to us. Of course, were very comfortable with Heath Millerhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/heath-miller/ada7ab1b-9acd-421a-bed0-79ccc4542630/) and we know a lot about David Johnsonhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/david-johnson/4e49a0b2-e0cf-4022-84ce-69563b3e5fa1/). And the rest of the guys are working.

Q. As you look at the Steelers at this point in the preseason, what are the keys to their performance against the Falcons?

A. Just to be where we are, to focus on the things that are in front of us, to put a game plan into action, to execute in situational football, to understand the unwritten rules of the game. I think its important that we not only continue to hone ourselves from a skills standpoint but to collectively understand situational football, the playing of the football in the field of play on special teams. Im looking for growth in those areas.

Crezdon Butler! Pick Six. 95 yards wow. Not quite Harrison in the Super Bowl but you gotta love seeing that out of our young corners.

Man it would be great if Butler could eventually turn into Taylor 2.0 when his time is done

We need some of these DBs we've selected to turn out to be some gems

Drudge Report is hedging - he has links to it being the apocalypse and nothing:noidea:

According to the NYT the storm peaks from 6 - 10 a.m,

Im in Atlanta watching the game and all they do is talk to and bout Falcons players. Anyone got news of Lefty?
Looked like he broke his arm/shoulder.

It's funny that people try to say Gay is ok in the nickel. I never believed that and still don't. Other then a few good splash plays that are the result of someone else on the team playing well. He is terrible!

the same can be said for mcfadden.

in 2009 the top 3 most burned CBs in the league were taylor, mcfadden and gay.
