Default THE OFFICIAL TUESDAY NIGHT "WHAT I WILL BE LOOKING FOR EARLY ON" THREAD

So, what will you be looking for early on?

What I will be looking for:

offensive line- We have a $100 million QB and ranked 23rd last year in the rushing department. We need to keep Ben upright and block for our backs, especially Willie!

return game- Stefan Logan shined for us in the preseason, and I'm looking forward to his effectiveness early on in the opening game on both kickoff return and punt return.

Limas Sweed- In my opinion, Sweed will be the wildcard for us on offense this year. He had a real good preseason, now it needs to carry over into the regular season. We need him to make those big catches and provide a real third option for Ben in the receiving core.

Bruce Arians play calling- let's see will his play calling improve this year and how he will do after we get some "big plays". His play calling after big plays last year was horrendous. We need to see improvement. Also, there is talk about us going more to the screen game this season. If any Steelers fans remember, we used to be the best screen team in the league. What this does is take pressure off of Ben and open up our offense more.

Sense of urgency- I believe Mike Tomlin will do a better job than Bill Cowher with coming off a SB title. He is more of a disciplinarian and I'm pretty sure he has gotten the message across that LAST SEASON IS OVER! We need to come out firing on all cylinders and start the season off with a huge win at home!

All I ask for is that the OL shows up and plays an OK game. That ultimately gives FWP running room to break out big against the tough defense, and the play action for Big Ben works as well.
Limas Sweeds turn to shine and see how much he has improved since that huge drop last season against the Ravens in the playoffs for an easy TD.
Our ST defense has always been good, but now we have excellent return man on kickoffs and punts so im excited to see our starting field position compared to last season.

Finally now that Sep is back and after a season with two horrible punters im excited to watch this youngster pin the offenses deep in their zone and watch our defense prevail.

I'll be looking at how beautiful the city of Pittsburgh and Heinz Field look on my new 46" LED TV!

I'm looking for a fast start from the get go. I'm eager to see the running game, and how the offensive line does in their first test of the season, as it is a tough one. I'm eager to see our pass rush, and of course, that swarming defense that we are so famous for. I'm looking for a nice controlled, clock game, a feared return game and more importantly, consistency, timing, and BIG, BIG, BIG HITS, all which should result in a W!

I'm looking for Keyaron Fox to have a busy night. He's gonna have to rack up some tackles because they'll be running right at him. I'm guessing the D won't miss a beat with Timmons sidelined, and that's definitely not a knock on Timmons. I like the confidence Tomlin has in Fox, and I like the fact that he's a co-captain. More than anything else, I like the guys who are gonna be surrounding him on D.

I would like to see a fast start by the offense and then keep racking up the points...

I can't wait to see how well Logan does in a real game...

I would also like to see the season sack record be re-adjusted ... again!!




And of course... lots of @$$ kicking by the Defense...
