Default Rallying Packers Spoil Tomlin's Home Debut

Title: Rallying Packers Spoil Tomlin's Home Debut

Summary: After getting out to a 9-0 lead in the second quarter, it looked like the Steelers were well on their way to winning their preseason home opener and remaining undefeated in the preseason. But, it was not to be, as the Packers' backups rallied for a 13-9 win at Heinz Field last night.

It doesn't really matter that much.Our backups lost the game,not our starters.

The home debut that matters is against Buffalo.

Typical preseason game .... some good and some bad.

First team D played well. First team offense was uneven. The backs and qb's played ok, but the line had problems. Run blocking was effective and they opened some holes, but poor pass blocking, particularly by the tackles.

The second team D did not play well. Of course, that second team D wasn't running much much but a vanilla D. Still, even the second team D should be more stout against the run.

The special teams were uneven again. Great punting, but too many mistakes on coverage late in the game.

Starks has given up sacks in both pre season games. No matter how the O line shifts. Starks given up sacks still is going to happen. Do we want to keep a healthy Ben for the season are do we want to wreck him. Starks is going to possible get are QBs hurt during the games. A change is needed.
