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?
