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.
Thanks BBC,

Whats the deal with Mike Barr?

I take it he is a UDFA?

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

"I like Mike; he has a very strong leg, a very powerful leg," Cowher said. "No question, he's a guy we're going to take a strong look at."

They have ? Depends on who you ask then i guess. and if you dont know who Spiegler is and which Harrison i am talking about ( Arnold ) then maybe you arent paying attention enough to make a judgement ?? lol those 3 are fighting for 1 or 2 spots.

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.

GO STEELERS!

Dang... Parker is looking pretty good, eh?

Could do without the continued rehashes of Ben's accident.

Looks like the eagles pass rush is teeing right off on Ben - where has the best offensive line in football gone?

C'mon you knew you were going to hear that.

Im going to presume that interception was another bomb like the one in the SB - but this time there was a pass defense on the field?

Yeah, looked pretty bad from the replay. Dawkins was there the whole way.
