Default Some thoughts from an outsider

I ended up taping the game as it started 4 hours before I was due to go to work (1AM) and bed seemed like the only option.

Ok, some thoughts.

1. Ben looked relaxed and confident with the offense

2. Cedric Wilson stepped up with some very nice catches.

3. Nate Washington stunk the place up - dropped at least two easy catches.

4. The Saints played flat all night, with a lack of intensity.

5. The Steelers looked pumped and ready to go - everyone from the 1st to the third team looked motivated - kudos to Tomlin.

6. Tomlin looks the part - calm, assured and always in control.

7. The Saints possibly had one of the worst secondaries in the NFL last year, and going by this showing not much has changed - the amount of open space Wilson and Holmes gained from simple stop/go patterns was an embarrassment.

8. The Saints stacked the line to stop the Pittsburgh running game and left their woeful DB's in single coverage.

9. Sepulveda showed nice control with his punts, but I feel weirdly diappointed he didn't take someones head off fielding his own kick - maybe he needs to line drive a few more so he gets a shot at the returner

10. There was still much time spent focusing on the booth chit chat while the game played out in a small window - that sucks.

11. Did I mention that the Saints secondary sucks, too?

12. And finally, HOF inductee Charlie Sanders not only looks like Morgan Freeman but he sounds exactly like Morgan Freeman. Charlie Sanders is Morgan Freeman.

Completly agree even with the Morgan Freeman stuff.

I try not to take to much out of a pre-season game....But I did like the Steelers energy last night.....The whole team was pumped and ready to play....Were the Saints did look like zombies out there...lol

I guess Ben looked confident.....Don't get me wrong it was nice seeing him out there and looking sharp....But he still only threw 3 passes......Which he completed two and was on target on all three....Damn Washington dropped his one incomplete pass...

Was that Cedric Wilson or Jerry Rice last night?lol Nice start for Wilson...Hope he continues to show up all year....As for Nate Washington....yep he did stink it up bad......No excuse for his two drops especially in a pre-season game.....

Just wait until Dec....Then you see Sepulveda lay the smack down....Wes Welker be afraid be very afraid......

Yes Charlie Sanders sort of looks like Morgan Freeman....lol

I did a running analysis of the 1st and second quarters, the second half and a final run of grades last night, which were long and I would rather not re-hash right now. We can't post self-glorifying links, so you can either a) figure out where to find a link to my site (it's not that hard!), or b) ask and I will post them in here. I love this site so I won't take the risk of breaking a rule by linking to my own site.

I, for one, welcome Morgan Freeman to Canton.

LITP...

I have to agree with your assessment...

It is hard to draw any REAL facts from the game... but there are generalities that we can see..


1. Steelers seem to have bought into the hard-nosed, hard hitting type football once again.

2. Cedric Wilson and Simmons sure LOOK like they understand their job is on the line this year.

3. Sep. hit some good punts....

Other then that... I have to wait to see them play more against the first strings of other teams.

Yesterday, I was ready to give us the Superbowl... Today... I say it is a great start.. we look good... but we played one series!

Ben showed me last night that he is more comfortable and he actually set his feet before he threw which impressed me. Cedric was also very impressive and showed me that he can play with this team and step up to be the 3rd string reciever, but then Nate yes had a very bad night, but i think and hope he can improve and be a good WR for the Steelers.
