Default Yeah, yeah I know...

It's only one preseason game, but I just can't shake the optimism off of me. The Steelers looked pretty good last night. Especially the 1st teamers and Ben. I'm sorry, I just can't help it. Sure, there were a few kinks (punt returns, Nate's hands) but hey, they have four extra PS games to play to fix those before the opener in Cleveland.

So don't be afraid to show a teeny little bit of optimism, guys. Our Steelers are back in season. After another long summer of watching the Pirates lose, unfortunately.

I feel good!!! It was great to see some Steeler football (dvd's can only do so much), and it couldn't have been better than getting that 'W' on Tomlins debut!

C'mon guys show some optimism. We had one bad year because of unfortuante circumstances. We are still the team that won the SB in 05!

I feel great though, I love the fact that Ben is "re-writing" the playbook.

Honestly, I wouldn't put too much stock into a Hall of Fame game win. First year coach Steve Spurrier spanked the 49ers (I believe) 37-7 in this game a few years back...and we all know how that turned out.

Dallas beat the Saints last pre-season 30-7 in similar fashion. Fast forward to week 13 in the regular season...Saints 42, Dallas 17.

Saints corner Mike McKenzie said he couldn't believe he saw a double-move 15 yards downfield in this type of game. Not to mention the all-out blitzes the Steelers used on the Saints all night long. Especially on the first teamers. There was no play-action or dog-blitzes from the Saints side.

The Steelers wanted the win and they got it....woopieee

It's a long season...give your heart a break until September.

I don't think too many folks here are. And trust me, LeBeau didn't scratch the surface as far as defensive sets of ours are concerned. We also didn't keep our defensive starters in nearly as long as N.O. did. Sounds to me like someone is a little miffed that the Saints lost. I think you need to take a variation of your own advice and not eat too many sour grapes over a preseason game.

Yeah, that couldn't have been a case of McKenzie playing CYA for getting burnt, could it? Of course not.
