I'm so pumped up for tomorrow....Even though its just pre-season but Steelers football is back and I can't wait......The players that will be closely watching tomorrow against the Cardinals......

1. Mike Wallace and Joe Burnett-I'm anxious to see them in the return game and at their respective positions.....I think both will upgrade our return game and I think Wallace since he doesn't seem over his head so far might even contribute some as a WR this year....I'm not saying huge numbers....But 15-20 catches and couple TD's......

2. Limas Sweed-Reports so far seem to suggest that Sweed is becoming comfortable as an NFL player and he might be on the verge of breaking out this year......I'm hoping Sweed comes out and has a nice game against the Cards to build on his nice training camp he is having.....Sweed has the speed and size to burn defenses when they chose to blitz Big Ben......

3. Rashard Mendenhall-Rashard looked tenative last pre-season.....He didn't receive much playing time in the regular season due to his injury.....He should be more comfortable heading into his second pre-season.....I want to see that talent and pedigree that made him a first round pick......

4. Daniel Sepulveda-it was brutal watching the Steelers punt game last year....I'm so stoked to see D-Sep back on the field.....

5. Keenan Lewis-I was intrigued when he was drafted and all the reports I have read/heard have been positive about him so far......

6. Doug Legursky-People on this site know this is my guy...He has chance to run with the first team due to injury at the center position....I'm rooting hard for him to make it......I think he could be a Hank Fraley type player....Nothing great but a guy that can get the job done.....Just a solid player.....

7. Ziggy Hood-I want to see his motor since he has a great one...I like players like that and I want to see his interior pass rushing skills...I'm also to see how he is developing in the run game as a 3-4 DE.......

Of course I'm always interested in the undrafted players.......Those guys you have to root hard for since they're chasing their dream and fighting to keep their dream alive.......

Rejoice Stiller Nation that Steelers football is back....The defense of our Super Bowl title starts tomorrow...Not officially since its just pre-season but hey its a start.....I'm waving my Terrible Towel as I type this......

About damn time too...I don't think the offseason could have been longer. I will also be closely watching the players you talked about and I will add one more to that list. Isaac Redman...this guy could be a diamond in the rough.

Are you ready for some football!!!!!!

Yes, I am pumped. Break out the gear for another season. Yeah baby.:cope:

Nothing like the feeling the day of or the night before a Steelers game whether it's a night game, on Sunday afternoon at 1 or 415 or on Monday night. This is by far the best time of the year. From here on out you know you're going to wake up every single week from here until hopefully February and there will be another Steelers game to look forward to the next week. Let's gear up to bring home Number 7 fellas it starts tonight...

Life goes on. However, it does not travel well without NFL football and especially without Steelers football. Damn good feeling to see another season get underway. Hope no one gets hurt, on our side. :steelers1:
