I'm looking forward to seeing a few players tonight, in particular:

Willie Parker. I really haven't seen enough of the guy to really form a solid opinion on wether he looks good or bad. Tonight I believe we will able to come away with a better and more informative opinion.

Keisel. I'm not sure how much we will be able to learn about him tonight since the Eagles are not a grind it out type of team, but Buckhalter will start.

McFadden and Coke even though the Eagles WR group is a complete joke . If our CB's look good tonight, the level of competition has to be considered.

Clark. I'm hoping he steps up his game in these next two outings. I still have high hopes for Clark and I still feel he can turn out to be a good/solid FS this season. Hopefully tonight he starts showing it.

Steeler fans.

Lets set out some targets for tonight.

What would you like to see from your team - is any recognised name other than Sean Morey under severe pressure for his place in the 53?

Is the final score totally irrelevant?

I think the Eagles have more to prove than the Champs so im thinking the eagles will come out on top in this one.

Off the top of my head and to keep it short and simple.....

From the offense: The running game. I would like to see Duce put on a better showing tonight. I have no doubt that he's capable of doing so, but it's time to put the "rust" issue to rest and start showing more pop. Besides that, I feel our first string offense looks solid (Ben to Wilson in particular).

From the defense: Simple, getting off the field on 3rd downs. On the defensive side of the field I will be paying close attention Keisel, Clark, McFadden and Coke.

Notable/recognized players with jobs on the line other than Morey: Gardocki, Colclough and Morgan come to mind.


I've learned a long time ago that the final score is completely irrelevant when dealing with preaseason games. I don't care if we go 0-4 or 4-0.

You think Staley will get a big run out?

Its kinda tough to judge the effectiveness of these 'big backs' - they operate best late in the game after they have worn down the opposing teams D - but I guess you can also see how he operates in the open field.

You expect to see Humes get much of a run out?

On the D side it will be interesting to see if the Steelers can rid themselves of that problem that bugged them last eyar - the getting off the field on 3rd and long situations.

I hadn't thought of Gardocki having his job under pressure, who is the other punter in the mix?

Thanks

I'm personally not too worried about our defensive backfield. They have never really been overly impressive in coverage, and they weren't last season either. The thing that makes the Steelers defense able to shut down the pass (or at least slow it down) is the pass rush. When the Steelers are bringing in their blitz packages, no one - not even Peyton Manning - can pass on them. Not to say that I don't care about the secondary, as I'll still be watching to see who should be out there starting, and who could be able to make a big impact at the DB position, but I'm more worried about watching guys like Keisel (whom I know you mentioned, I totally agree with your assesment on him), Aaron Smith, Clark Haggans, and Foote.

Mike Barr. I'm a big fan of Chris, and would like to see him stay, but I won't lose sleep over who is punting for us.

I really don't know much about Barr, I believe he is an UDFA, but it sounds like Cowher really likes the kid:

Good post, BBC, though I have to respectfully disagree with not being overly concerned about who is punting for the Steelers. Field position is just as important as any other aspect of the game and with Gardocki, we have a proven guy who can pin an opponent back behind the 20, 10 and sometimes a few inches in front of the goal line. Barr is very talented but Gardocki gets my vote here simply because of the aforementioned and his experience.

I have a FF Draft tonight and hopefully by the time it's over, the Steelers will have their first preseason V! Have fun everyone and enjoy the game. :cool:

GO STEELERS!

Oh I see.

Well that ball is now firmly in the court of Mr Branch and Mr Chayut (Branch's fine, fine agent).

My early feelings are that the Patriots are trying to demonstrate to Branch how much he is going to be worth on the open market - to help him gain a little perspective on his wage demands.

I really can't see a deal getting done - you need a team to over-pay Branch and also pay some hefty compensation to the patriots - a 1st rounder I would have thought.

Bottom line is - he isn't one of the few WR';s in the game worth doing that for.

Well the first half I thought the first drive started out well. Willie is looking very good. Ben, okay, not great. Missed on a few long balls and felt Cowher should have kept him in longer. Our interior O-line was getting beat pretty regularly. Batch looked like a solid #2 QB.

On D, Ike dropped two INT's (one gift wrapped). You gotta catch those. I thought our LB core looked solid. Troy is having a bad night. Tackling and coverage.

Willie looked great....
I'm starting to buy into the whole "Duce is slow" theory....
Ben looks OK...but far from sharp...

On defense...I dunno....they dont really look overly focused...

Again..most important to me...no injuries...

We still aren't running our real defense because we don't want other teams getting a head start at trying to figure out our blitzes. Troy and everyone will be fine. Duce needs to go he looks huge

I'm completely disappointed in the first team offense and defense. Once again they seem to be having a lot of problems that should have already been ironed out during the first few weeks of camp.
Duce just seems to have completely stopped running lately. Is he just banking on the fact that he'll be on the roster?
I think Ben definitely needed some more playing time, but I feel good that he'll be up to speed come Sept 7.
The defense looked ok but I wasn't impressed. I guess over the last few years I've been spoiled by their performance.

I don't know maybe I should be happy they aren't playing well during the pre-season. They did the same thing last year....and it is still pre-season!

havent had time to talk so heres my two cents :twocents:

i am now officially on the Anthony Smith bandwagon although i already liked him more than the 2 Cs.

it would definitely be a good idea to do somethin wit Staley before he completely ruins his trade value. after tonight u might be able to get a player wit Peyton Mannings speed and George Bushs inteligence.

Disappointing game tonight, but there were bright spots. Ben got hit. While, some may see that as negative - Ben got hit in the head, and legs, and popped right back up. That makes me smile. Willie looked very impressive, and those screens look to be working great. It looks like the Steelers are going to be able to stretch the field out a lot more this season, and when Hines gets back in the line-up it should only get better. Our first team defense didn't look great, but they didn't give up a touchdown. Anthony Smith proved to be impressive again tonight, and I'd still like to see what he can do in the starting role.

The best part? It's pre-season. None of this will matter come Super Bowl Sunday :wink:

Thanks to DVR I can watch as many as i want but this puppy is hittin the trash bin asap.. What a horrible game.. They came out looking like damn.. there gonna whoop some ass.. then Ben got hit.. then again.. then again.. same offensive breakdowns as last year in the beginning.. I'm sure they'll get there heads out of there asses but Ben just didn't have that great of a night.. Boyd looked horrible too and to tell you the truth.. Batch looked like the best player on the field tonight.. And that hit by Smith will be played over and over again.. smacked the ho!! I heard last week dolphins aren't as smart as everyone once thought.. can't wait to prove that theory right in 13 days!! WAKE UP STEELERS ITS TIME FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!!
