Default Nice Coming out Party

Well its fair to say that Mr. T. has somewhat of a grasp on what a Steelers coach is supposed to bring to a Steelers team. I'm not talking about individual players. I'm talking about the whole team and the all around play. We all pretty much figured that the first team would come out kickin but. But where ever you looked we beat them to the punch. I don't know how many times I heard Chris Collinsworth say "the Steeelers are just dominating and playing Steelers football ball".

Look I know this was only the first game of pre-season but I was really impressed with the overall speed and physical nature of our Steelers.

I liked the intensity level, from the top players on down. Ben & Hines around Ariens on the field, talking about plays, the young guys playing their hearts out. I'm excited about the team! :)

The Steelers played with fire they severely lacked last year. I was really impressed by the O. It was so methodical and Colt-like.

What equally impressed me was the D. It had so much trouble handling the Saints O last year. It got off the field quickly,made great plays, and the Saints 1st teamers couldn't so squat. Best of all, It got QB PRESSURE. Another lacking area from last year. Mark it down, Lamarr Woodley will be a beast for years to come. Hurry up and heal Timmons so we can see what you got!

Ben looked really sharp...Cedrick Wilson looked like he could finally be a third option for us....Holmes looked solid....Got to worry about he kick return game though...Why can't those guys hold onto the ball...I think the one ball hit Reid in the face mask and then he ran for a good gain..Did not get to see much of Supulveda, which I guess is a good thing.

For a first game...

with a new coach... some of the offseason issues that we have had... etc.etc.

I think it is a great game and a great start...

What that means for us... is simply that it is a nice beginning.... four more weeks before these things begin for real!!

I loved how the steelers came out and proved that our starters are already kicking it and still have time to improve, and also how Batch and St. Pierre came out and had great drives to prove we can score under any situation. Not to leave out the starting D who held Bree's to 1-6 and shut them out 0-6 on third downs. Overall i was impressed and its only the pre-season.

Yeah... We looked like we may seriously be three deep at back... maybe four... however, once again, this is the first game.

I want to see those back in against the first string defense.

I like the fact that the O and D coordinators are right on the field to actually interact face to face with the players and Tomlin. No worries that a play could get lost in translation from the booth to the field. A little more accountability if you screw up and have to go to the OC and get into it face to face rather than talk to a phone as well.
