could have had pollak from ASU.

more problems with the O-line than the center position. simmons and colon will be a liability all season. kemo is still unproven at this point.

I agree. Looks like a low scoring game in the making. Hey - just so the scoreboard shows us on top when the final second ticks off the clock.
Great call, HTG! Reckon we was up at the final tick.


Any word on the extent of Larry's knee injury? I missed the game, but am catching up. Nice to hear about Timmons playing like that.

Lefty had a great game! If he has another performance like that one, Batch won't be back this season IMO.

Yeah, and if Ben were to do that, Steelers fans will jump all over him, accusing him of throwing the OL under the bus and shifting blame. So he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

Yep. How quickly folks forget how P. Manning got jumped all over and called a crybaby for the "protection issues" comment, huh?

I agree 100% ... although I think what made Manning's comments so aggregous is that he was clearly calling out some terrible blocking assignments at the line. Letting Porter go unblocked because Troy might blitz is not exactly smart.



Ben is doing the right thing. If he needs to call someone out as a team leader do it in private.

Positives: Defense,Leftwich, Skippy Reed
Negatives: Arians(with that formation, I figured it out already) Mendenhall's fumbles,(he's lucky it was just preseason), entire 1st offense in general.
Triple negative: O-line(that O-line gives me no confidence looking at all the teams they are playing).
Still GO STEELERS
Great game guys

Mendenhall is lucky it was just preseason. He needs to do something about the fumbling problem. Do that inregular season games you get no sympathy, fumble it and it costs you a game you'll hear it in the media. Do it in the postseason no one would want to be you, fumble it and it costs your team a championship you'll be remembered for just that one play.

I wonder if he won't train the way that Tiki Barber did to help fix his fumblitis (silk sleeve, or something like that).
