He looked awesome last night! I think we found another late-round gem with speed to spare!

He made some nice moves on the td and showed off that speed but if you watch the replay of that play we clearly got away with a block in the back right when rainey.caught the pass lol. Not going to complain about that seeing as other teams get away with it against us

That defender was already on his way to the ground and wasn't even going to sniff Rainey even without the block in the back. It also didn't stop the other 10 guys on the field from tackling him, which they failed to do. Not trying to be a dick, it's just that the stream I was watching last night was from Philly's local station and their commentators made a huge deal out of that when to me, it was nothing. I thought for their first NFL game action the replacement refs did a fairly respectable job last night, overall.

77 was able to meet him at the goal line ... I think that's more impressive than Rainey's TD!

- he's got that game-breaker speed alright - something we've been missing from our stable of ploughhorses

just get off the line and in the open - swing passes baby, that's what Haley showed he likes

I was loving every minute of those passes too. It was nice to see an o-coordinator who actually utilizes his backs in the passing game.

Simple answer: Yes.

Long answer: It wasn't just that play. It was his elusiveness & dump-off pass-catching ability. A friend was at the game... all night, I got this text: "Will I am GAY looks amazing as a RB."

After all the cuts he had to make he had to slow down, especially on a "screen" play, the edge goes to the defenders. Just take a look at how mnay people had the angle that he outran that is the impressive thing, speed kills!!!!

Let's hope we see a lot of this coming season.

Not to compliment the other team, but the big guy #77 on the Eagles never quit

From day 1 I have said that Rainey would be electric. Here's to hoping that he has more in the tank than just one preseason game.

Steelers running backs Chris Rainey and Issac Redman during OTAs on the South Side May 2012

The Steelers aren’t concerned about the size of running back Chris Rainey’s heart, but the coaches worry how much punishment the 5-foot-8, 178-pounder can endure.

It took one hard jab to bring him down Sunday against Indianapolis. Rainey swept left on a reverse, then was hammered by Jerraud Powers as he cut toward the middle of the field.

Rainey, who caught a 57-yard TD pass in the preseason opener at Philadelphia, was examined before being escorted to the locker room for further tests for possible concussion symptoms. Rainey returned to the game late in the first quarter.

• Antonio Brown dodged several Colts en route to the end zone on 67-yard TD catch in the first quarter. But credit tight end Heath Miller and running back Baron Batch with assists. Miller created a seam with a block on the boundary, then Batch took out two defenders to clear a path to the end zone. Batch missed last season with a knee injury but has bolstered his chances of making the team.

• Quarterback Jerrod Johnson, who completed 4 of 5 passes for 65 yards, showcased the mobility and agility that’s made him a contender for the third-string job. Johnson completed a fourth-down pass of 24 yards to receiver David Gilreath in the fourth quarter, then threw 21 yards to tight end Justin Peelle. On third-and-29, Johnson completed a 14-yard pass to rookie Toney Clemons (Valley) to set up a Daniel Hrapmann field goal.

• Ike Taylor and Reggie Wayne dueled during the first quarter. Rookie quarterback Andrew Luck targeted Wayne once on the first two drives. He appeared to have Wayne open on an out pattern, but Taylor returned it 49 yards for a score. Wayne gained redemption with 27- and 23-yard receptions to set up a Luck scoring run.

• Steelers linebacker Stevenson Sylvester missed the game with a knee injury. The Colts lost linebacker Robert Mathis (shoulder strain), receiver Austin Collie (concussion-like symptoms) and defensive end Cory Redding (knee) with injuries.

• Linebacker Mortty Ivy blocked a punt in the third quarter, and safety Robert Golden had 11⁄2 tackles on special teams in the first three quarters.

He really didnt look as fast or quick as I thought he is. As long as he isnt touched, he will be a weapon, but he seems as though a strong wind knocks him down. Never seen him run thru a tackle yet.

He's 180 lbs - he's never going to 'run through tackles' - you must be stuck on thinking of The Bus

Thanks for simplifying things Capt. Obvious......yeah, I am comparing him to Bettis :doh: .... he seems to fall over when hit by an arm on kickoffs.

I dont expect to see him blast thru Brian Urlacher, but I would hope he could stay vertical when touched by a blue glove of a Colts special teamer.
