Default Stan Savran interesting Question

Was watching Stan Savran today on Sportsbeat and he had two question so I thought I throw them out there to see what everyone else thinks...

Question #1 was about Ike Taylor and I see everyone's thoughts on him in the other thread.

On to question #2 who is the steeler without the obvious ben, what player rookie or veteran are you going to most closely watch in Saturday's preseason game.


Question #2.... Becuase of Ward's hammy Nate Washington gets the start. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE this kid and think he can be a real play maker. He's got great hands and catches the ball in front of him away from his body, you don't see this a lot. So that is who I'll be watching on Saturday pre-season game.

like you said, obviously I'm interested to see how Ben will be playing (if they play him...I won't be surprised either way), I'm also really interested to see Washington in action. I'm sure he's gonna make the most of this opportunity to show the coaches what he's got. also hoping to see a little Reid action

Non-starters. McFadden and Kemoeatu. To be sure Willie Reid and Jacobs.

The short list.

James Harrison. The Steelers have to find a way to get this guy on the field in a starting role. He exemplifies the mean and nasty tradition that the Steelers have been missing at the LB position since the departure of Greg Lloyd.

McFadden
Colon
Harris
Washington

Ditto on Ryan Clark. I want to see how well this guy fits into our secondary. I'm also going to be watching Santonio, Nate and Willie Reid. They all looked pretty good in camp the other day and I want to see their playmaking abilities against the Cards' D. I'm hoping they get a lot of playing time against the Cards first and second team D's - Arizona had a pretty good D overall last season.

I also would like to focus a bit on Omar Jacobs. There have been conflicting reports on him coming out of camp but watching him at camp a few days ago - he looked pretty sharp to me. No better way than to dispel the doubters but to get out there and kick ass!

if willie parker gets the start and goes against arizonas 1st teamers that means duce will probably play 2nd string and possibly tear up az's back ups. im curious how this will play out. duce has a chance to look great. im wondering if most fans start calling for him to be the starter if this happens.

I think everyone is pretty much stuck on parker starting and Duce being the number 2 guy no matter what happens in Preseason. Now if in the reg season, Parker starts and doesnt get anything going, then we have the luxery of swapping them around and playing Duce for awhile to see what he can do and bring Parker in on select plays. This may happen during the season where Staley could get more carries if he is the one that gets going and Parker is in at select times. I dont think either scenerio is a concern and i dont really care who starts ... whatever formula will win us that game that day is fine by me.
