What channel will this be on?? I know they show it on FSN Pittsburgh but they always black it out here in Arkansas. Any other ideas?

It's not listed on NFL Network, at least not live. It may be on later in the week. Internet radio will probably be your best bet.

Both...they ran all 3 step drops and we couldn't get any pressure..and they were able to run too

08-14-2008, 09:21 PM
Bills second string running back is running all over steelers starting def.

also steelers corners have looked horrible. Which should worry you alot with playing browns and cici twice. They can't tackle for crap. taylor, wow.

can't wait to see what leftwich can do...

livingthrudying
08-14-2008, 09:21 PM
when your starters are having the same M.O. as last year it is a reason to freak out. Not being able to wrap up cost us huge last year.

livingthrudying
08-14-2008, 09:51 PM
actually it looked like they got a hand on leftwich's face mask which caused him to fumble the ball. You see a hand go into the mask and his head get jerked and then the ball goes bye bye.

The Steelers always play vanilla D in the pre-season...The tackling looked real spotty but that can be worked on....No worries Stiller Nation...Its pre-season....

Penalties and the poor tackling by the D are the things that went wrong in the first half by the first team units....

Ben only missed two passes....One was a tipped INT.....He also threw the ball away once and hit a check down to Moore...He knows he can't sacked 40+ times again this year.......Its going to be fun year.......

D looked really weak to me....still giving way to much cushion from the secondary...we didn't start getting any pressure on the QB until the starters from the Bills went out. But Harrison looks like his usual beastly self, I think they still need some obvious "tune up" time overall.

It's going to be a slow process with Sweed much like it was with Santanio Holmes back in 2006 when he was drafted first. He will slowly get worked into the offense I think and once mid-season comes I think he will start to be more involved in the offense I believe in terms of pass catching and making more plays.

I wasn't knocking the kid....Just pointing what he does well and what he still needs to improve on....

32 seems to have hit it pretty much head on IMO... Timmons is just now learning how to play ILB in the NFL..last year was basically a wash so this is really his baptism by fire so to speak. Timmons has a great motor and he's got enough speed and instinct to play in space and be able to drop back in coverage. If he gets locked up against a quality TE, Tackle, or if he is rushing up the middle and gets caught up by a Guard he's going to have some problems till he gets his his skills down more. It just takes time and reps which is what he is lacked last year. It's one thing to use a speed move coming around the outside but it's another to be able to get off the block of a TE or FB to get to the ball carrier...that's where experience is needed. He'll get it but it will take time.

the Steelers will use Timmons a lot this year; ideally you want to be able to rotate your LB's during the game to keep them fresh. Last year we couldn't do that because we didn't have anybody on the inside that was any good. Now we finally have some depth so I look for Timmons to get a lot of reps each week regardless of who's healthy.

LT (Lawrence Timmons) and Double D (Dennis Dixon) really impressed me tonight.......I think LT is going to take Foote's spot based off his closing speed and power, and Double D looked very comfortable and put good touch on his passes. In two years DD will be a great back-up for us or a good starter for another team. For some players it was a good game but overall there was too many mistakes on both sides of the ball.
