Default Re: Week 2 PS Gameday thread, Colts Vs. Steelers

Again, I'm not usually the worrying type, but I am surprised how there's not even a bit of concern from some that our O line still looked bad, the second team defense was terrible, and Ben didn't even produce a FG. He gets credit for the TD to Brown as he should, but Brown made that play. I will have to rewatch the game to be certain, but I'm not sure Ben even set foot on Indy's side of the field. We're the Steelers and I tend to stay confident because of that, but look what happened last year. Week 1 was an embarassing blow out, Week 2 beat the Seahawks. Week 3 Ben pretty much just laid in the backfield and we were one bad throw away from being embarassed BY CURTIS PAINTER. Then Houston made us look like amatuers the following week. All I'm saying is: just because we're the Steelers and have been used to being sucessful doesn't mean we're always ready. I'm definitely not saying "be worried", I'm just not wearing rose colored glasses.

Exclamation Re: Week 2 PS Gameday thread, Colts Vs. Steelers

My fan-hood of this team was passed down by family. I've NEVER been ashamed of that. With it, I'm not hitting the panic button at all. It's PRESEASON people! 3rd stringers playing 3rd stringers. I got one thing for those hitting the panic button ...

I'm gonna look at some POSITIVES - Did anyone even SEE #18 on offense? Pretty impressive. He added a blow to Mike Wallace after the Antonio Brown TD. Potential deep threat?? I think so!

- Every RB seemed to have at least one big run. Again, The O-line is dumping the potential though once again. Dwayer was impressive to me. B. Batch? Not so much. Hell, even newly signed Ford had some highlights.

- J. Johnson played calm and did well *AS A BACKUP* of course. What, KEEP Byron Leftwich??? Sorry fellow fans...it's time for lefty to go! What has he done as backup?

- Charlie Batch is fine. Yes he is getting old. But I realize he's here still for a reason. The guy has some wisdom with his aging. He's proven reliable and can still read defenses WELL. Give the guy a break. He's earned his roster spot. Has Lefty???

- I saw at least one effective screen pass. A catch + the extra effort for a first down.

It's too freakin early to be worrying so much in the NFL. I think many of us take for granted all the success this team has had. It will go on to win time after time. But the roster is 53 people. We're just finding who fits the right roles.

And I give a to Indy. They are no Baltimore Ravens. They are no New England Patriots. You get the point. Have a little RESPECT for other teams?

I'll save the superbowl dream. It's one *preseason* game. We'll be okay.

I fail to find ANY way to disagree with any of that. Pretty much sums it up.

And yet we finished 12-4.
