The funny part is that he dropped two easy catches -- and then made an acrobatic jumping catch over the middle a little later in the game. Seems like you gotta catch him off-guard to make him catch the ball. Maybe Ben should yell "BOO!" right before the ball gets to him.

It looks exciting, but I'd like to save my excitement for the games that count.

If your one and only job was to hit a button that triggered a stop light that stopped school buses filled with little kids from running into other school buses filled with little kids, I'm guessing you'd:

A) Be paid about 150,000 times less than Nate Washington.
B) Be about 150,000 times more effective than he is at his job, which is to catch a small oblong shaped ball when it is tossed his way.

I'd love to see your analysis, SteelerWatch. Please feel free to post it which you can do without linking. Thanks!

LITP - that was a great assessment and I can't say I disagree with your thoughts. I'm not going to get down too much on Nate - it was the first preseason game and he may have had some butterflies. Remember - though he's been in the black and gold since '05, he only started playing last season when Ben really wasn't up to snuff himself. If the dropsies become a habit with Nate (which I don't believe will be the case) - off with his head! (j/k)

It was obvious that the Saints players were taking it as just another preseason game, but it looked like the Steelers were thinking it was the regular season opener.

Yeah, Willie Parker and company were the least of their worries last night.

All this hype about him being able to lay someone out and it never happened...it made me sad inside. But he still had some good punts...and none of them were blocked.

Yup, I hate when they do that...it's like they forget that the football game is actually the main event.

You're not lying...why is Fred Thomas still a starter? I couldn't possibly name a worse starting cornerback in the league right now. And I'm glad to see that New Orleans is getting a taste of how watching Kevin Kaesviharn and Brian Simmons get burnt play after play feels like.

You sure you aren't a Seahawks fan?

No, just another Bengals fan that will never give credit where credit is due. New Orleans played the game as if it were a preseason game, and we treated it like a regular season game. Guess that explains why our starters were pulled after the first series and our 3rd and 4th stringers played most of the game. The bottom line is both teams had virtually the same amount of time to prepare for the game, and the Steelers were better prepared, which I hope becomes a trend that continues right into the regular season. Besides, I would rather see what I saw last night any day of the week than the abortion I saw last preseason, and a better part of the last regular season to boot.
