We should probably have a thread for every game this season, just to keep the game discussion in a formal area.

I'm excited to see how the first team outside linebackers do. We all know a lot of this season rides on if the young pass rushers can step up and replace JP.

**STEELERS LINEUP NEWS**

RB Willie Parker, OL Darnell Stapleton, and LB Lawrence Timmons won't be playing tonight.

LB James Harrison is doubtful.

RB Najeh Davenport will start for the injured Willie Parker.

S Ryan Clark, CB Deshea Townsend, and C Chukky Okobi (center) will start in the place of S Anthony Smith, CB Bryant McFadden, and C Sean Mahan.

QB Rotation: Roethlisberger, Batch, St. Pierre, Randall

I cannot wait for this game. I wanna see Sepulveda make a tackle so bad. I can't wait to see Woodley starting. I wanna see Miller, Spaeth, and Dekker in a 3TE set. I wanna see Ben run the no huddle offense. I wanna see Reid return one for a touchdown. I can't wait to see Baker, Fowler, Russell, and Davis all get into an actual game.

Most of all I wanna see Tomlin on the sidelines.

Thanks, the pizza place I deliver for is making me close tonight...ugh. My boss is a Steeler fan too! My dad said he'd order a pizza when he's watching it over at my neighbor's house (who's from Pittsburgh) so I could watch a few minutes.

McCallister is out.. I don't like that as a pre-season game. I want to see the guys tackle him.

I got good feelings.. I think we're going to have a bunch of mistakes.. I'm looking for sole potential.

#81 and #82 are looking good in warmups :)

Hey you're lucky, I can't get at all. There is no possible way to get it with Time Warner.

Amazing game (Sorry to rub it in)..

I'll find you a copy somewhere, and I'll put a full-write up the next day or so.

Awesome game, Steelers played flawlessly aside from Reed missing a FG attempt. Standouts to me were,

Big Ben
Ced Will
Holmes
Davis
Russell
Woodley

Barr did have a decent 50 yrd punt. unfortunetly he has no real chance of getting on the field unless Sep gets hurt, or Barr just out preforms him in every Pre Game

Barrs only chance is if Sep gets injured.

I wanted to see more out of both Baker and Fowler. Hopefully they can get more action in the other games.

Carey Davis and Gary Russell...I really like these guys.

Ced is stepping up because he knows Santonio is gunning for his job.

Good play by Woodley

Najeh played horrible, I want to run him out of Pittsburgh myself.

Smooth Criminal

Only thing that I'm not liking out of Davis is that when you take his one long run away from him he had 6 runs for 12 yards. I'd like to see more consistency out of him. Russell had a 5.1 YPC without any huge run distorting that number.

Smooth Criminal

Najeh didn't look that bad. His TD run was pretty impressive but other than that it was very average.

Mr. Stiller
08-06-2007, 01:35 PM
I think my favorite player for upside would be #05 Randall. That kid showed an effortless pass 50-60 yards.. it was near on target, though very catchable if Fowler doesn't fall down.

The other one he was just too powerful a throw behind the WR.

If he got nearly as many throwing Snaps as Frenchy.. I think he'd be the #3.

I don't think Randall will even be given a fair shot to make the team. He doesn't get any where near the opporunity as Brian St. Pierre.

True.. I think Randall could have lit it up.

The difference between Frenchie and Randall? Randall has PS eligibility left while Frenchie is out of PS time.

Wasn't impressed with Davenport at all. Washington should have caught a few more balls and Wilson looked pretty darn good. I'm not totally won over on Tomlin yet, but I do like what I see from him. I wasn't big on the signing of him, but like I said, I will wait and see what he brings to the table. So far so good. Ben looked very good and Batch loks like a solid backup again. I do like the way Davis ran the ball, very impressive. Defense looked pretty solid also. I have to say that the Steelers looked better than I thought they would.Of course it is early and only pre-season, but it does make me excited to see what we might have on the field this year. We still have alot of talent on the team, hopefully it was just a season of distractions last year, with the Ben episodes and also not knowing what Cowher was going to do. Maybe we will get back to the form we are use to seeing, and won't miss a beat with a new direction in coaching change. I also like what I saw out of Arians O.

I agree with that. That run should really be attributed to the block by Simmons. However, what impressed me was that right after the run he was right back in the huddle and took another carry. Thats pretty good for a big guy who had a big run. A guy like that would normally be sucking oxygen pretty hard after something like that.

Exactly. He could definitely be the short yardage guy we all wanted to have this season.

On another note, does anyone know where I can get some good pictures from the game, specifically guys like Woodley or some other rookies? I'd like to make myself a new wallpaper for the new season.
