Default Re: Preseason game #3

Here's my thought on preseason game number 3!!!

WE completely stunk up the joint!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Morey couldnt catch a pass if you put velcro on ball.. Ben was way to jittery and not calm in the pocket, ARE was dropping passes left and right.. our starting defense was getting exhaused from all the 3 and outs they had to try and save....

Kranchick looked decent, as did Heath Miller, Parker had 1 good run, but thats all he got pretty much since he's our only healthy RB right now.

There was little good to take from this game other than a few good spots here and there of individual plays...

Thank GOD this is preseason!

Blitz...I have to agree with you here! I really feel like Ben just needs more time to get his timing down. Remember Hines was out for the start of camp and I am hoping that has something to do with Ben's performance. Right now, he's just not hitting targets and looks a little flustard.
Our D was exhausted...and they are not used to being on the field that much.
I am keeping my fingers crossed Bettis isn't out long. Parker did look good on his one run...but he needs to stay healthy.

yes...it is the most important game...and we did suck no doubt...but I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet...this won't be the first time the Steelers have had a bad preseason. I will say I am worried about how we have been playing, and we really won't get a good feel if they are going to bounce back until regular season now. They won't play much at all the next game, but I have to stay positive and hope they can work out the kinks. It could very well be a long season, or we could bounce back from this and have a great season. Only time will tell!

I dont know whats up with Ben. You can tell he is making an effort to stay in the pocket and plant his feet, and even when he does he still isnt even close on his passes. The whole offense is just a mess right now.

I have to admit, I AM WORRIED. It really doesn`t seem like a timing problem. I could see over or under throwing somebody on the run, and blaming it on timing. But when players are standing still and you can`t hit them?/ Then there is a problem. I agree to that his feet are never underneath him when he throws. His mechanics suck right now. That worries me. Ben looks terrible. That scares the hell out of me.

Our defense couldn`t stop any of thier backs last night. The we couldn`t stop thier crappy passing attack. 150 yards passing in the first half, and 1 td. Would equal 300 yards and 2 td for the game. This all from a qb that doesn`t even know if he will be the starter. There offense made our offense look back. Not to mention our defense. I am worried.

I know its preseason. But our offense has don`t squat. If it weren`t for defensive and special teams tds. We would be embarrassed.
