Default Steelers D has another test this week.

They're playing the Panthers. Seems we play these guys every preseason. Same goes for the Eagles.

I've watched highlights of the Panthers game against Washington last week and I have to say Deangelo Williams and John Stewart (the rookie) are having a pretty good preseason. They ran all over the Redskin Defense. Combined for over 200 yards.

They may not have the same spotlight as the Taylor/Peterson tandem in Minnesota or the Taylor/Jones-Drew duo in Jax, but these guys run pretty hard. The Steelers D will be tested again this week.

Its good that we get these tests anyway, not that our starting D will be in there very long, but we can take a serious look at our dline depth and see how they play against a very good rushing team in Carolina.

it definitely will be a test

many people count out the panthers, but they are my pick for the NFC South. as long as delhomme stays healthy. and even if he gets injured, matt moore seems good

stewart/williams is going to be dangerous. both could be starters

and any time you have steve smith your team is dangerous.

I doubt we are going to see a lot again this week.

Why give tape to the Texans?

It'll probably be so vanilla that vanilla would be good.
