Most definitely. I have no doubt, though, that LeBeau will have the first team ready to rumble in the opener. Pre-season is mainly to evaluate the roster, keep the gold and silver on the final roster, transfer the bronze to the practice squad and discard the pewter. Cowher and his coaches know what they want in their players - we have to trust their judgment here. They haven't let us down in the past.
I'm sure the coordinators are cooking up a whole host of new surprises and schemes to throw at our opponents this season which aren't recorded on any NFL films and most definitely will not be revealed in the pre-season. We have two of the best coords in the business.
Don't sweat the pre-season folks - have faith in Cowher and his coaches to do what they need to do to put the best team possible on the field this season.
