Thanks for the info HTG. Keisel is going to be a beast this season, I just keep hearing good things about him. But what about Aaron Smith, I don?t think i?ve heard much of him

Thanks HTG. Looks like Big Snack had a tough day or two - first an unsuccessful debut as a fullback, and then not being able to beat the new guy. Nice to see the boys still got the intensity. HTG did you happen to see the FA tackle from IUP, Capese (sp)? He would be hard to miss at 6-9. I keep hearing good things about him. He could be the J Kuhn of the O'line.

I posted my TC pics last night in the Media forum - hope you all enjoy them!

To answer your questions:

From what I saw from my vantage point, Willie Reid was pushed out of bounds on the catches I watched him make, but he got some nice yardage on one of them.

Aaron Smith on the one-on-one's with the OL looked tough, but he still couldn't get past Mahan. I know it was only one practice, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to see Mahan starting either at G or T - he was that impressive.

Jason Capizzi did well on the one-on-one's as well. He's a big dude and you really can't miss him. The coaches seemed pleased with him.

Thanks again HTG. Wow, if Capizzi makes this team and Max Starks really does improve the Steelers could have a pair of huge OTs in the future.

If, if if if.

How is Chukky Okobi looking? Does it look like Mahan could possibly be our starting center?

Okobi got beat several times but as I said above, that was just one day. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Mahan at center - you had to be there to actually see how physically strong this guy is. Hey - if you can hold back Big Snack, you can hold back just about anyone. It was clear to me that he wants a starting position somewhere on that line and he's going to prove to the coaches that he is deserving of that spot.

Thanks HTG. I definitly think that for the money that we are paying Mahan that he should be starting somewhere.

Even if okobi picks up, I'm thinking Mahan will end up starting at Center this year over Chuckky.

I'm still rooting for Chukky, but with that big paycheck Mahan got seems like he'll have start somewhere in the line
