Default Fridays Practice

BACKS BEST 'BACKERS: The running backs/tight ends scored a 7-6 victory over the linebackers in a backs-on-'backers drill that was officiated by Steelers coach Bill Cowher on Friday. With each side having six wins, fullback Dan Kreider stopped James Harrison to clinch victory for the offense. Kreider, who earlier stuffed Clark Haggans, pumped his fist in celebration. Harrison, though, turned in the biggest hit when he leveled running back Willie Parker. The hit was so vicious that bystander Joey Porter kept yelling, "Down goes Frazier!"
COLON-HAGGANS II: A few days after their early-camp tussle, rookie tackle Willie Colon and Haggans had a rematch in one-on-one blocking drills. Colon got the upper hand by knocking off Haggans' helmet as the linebacker tried to force his way around the end. Haggans got even in the next round, beating Colon with a spin move to the inside. This prompted more woofing from Porter in defense of his fellow linebacker.

NO CONTEST: Defensive end Rodney Bailey twice got the best of tackle Barrett Brooks in 1-on-1 drills. Brooks wanted one more shot at Bailey, but he didn't get the chance.

GETTING THEIR KICKS: Jeff Reed was 4 for 4 on field-goal attempts, booming his 50-yard attempt with plenty of distance to spare. Rookie free agent Mark Brubaker converted 3-of-4 attempts. Brubaker missed a 40-yarder, but he eased his 50-yard attempt over the cross bar.

BIG HITTER: Cornerback Bryant McFadden broke up a pass with a nice hit on rookie wide receiver Santonio Holmes during 7-on-7 drills. Safety Ryan Clark, showing he's starting to fit in with his new teammates, became vocal and screamed, "Big Mac, I like it!"

H IS FOR ...: On a 2nd-and-8 scenario, tight end Jerame Tuman lined up in the backfield as an H-back.

GOING DEEP: Running the second-team offense in a one-minute drill, Charlie Batch needed just two plays to reach the end zone. Rookie receiver Willie Reid got behind defensive backs Chidi Iwuoma and rookie free agent Mike Lorello and cradled the pass and scooted all the way into the end zone.

BUTTERFINGERS: Ricardo Colclough muffed a kickoff during the morning practice. He worked with Quincy Morgan on the first return unit. Rookies Holmes and Reid were on the second unit. Colclough, Reid and Holmes took turns on the punt-return unit.

SEVENTH HEAVEN: During 7-on-7 drills in the morning, Cedrick Wilson and Quincy Morgan made nice diving catches in the end zone. Wilson was on the receiving end of Ben Roethlisberger's strike to the left pylon. Morgan's catch, thrown by rookie Omar Jacobs, was made in the back right corner of the end zone and came at cornerback Ike Taylor's expense.

OOPS: During morning 11-on-11 action, Morgan couldn't hang onto a Shane Boyd pass that struck the receiver between the numbers
