Relax, it takes time to learn the RT position. Flozell is a LT his entire NFL career, learning to play RT takes time. The only reps he's had so far have been in camp and then some vs the Lions. He'll get better. That's what preseason is for, he'll get it ironed out. The offensive line as a whole now has different faces and by the time the regular season starts we'll could have if the Steelers make the right call and stick Pouncey at Center.

Looks like he's just here to collect a paycheck.

Scary when your tackle has as nice spin moves as your RB, but he uses them to see the DL who just blew past him.

yeah im sure thats why hes there....oh wait, no, none of his money is guaranteed at all so he has to show up if he wants to collect a pay check. nice try though

I thought Tony Hills looked pretty good. In my mind he has to move up the depth chart after his performance. Nice to see one of those older picks starting to contribute.

I didn't see a whole lot of effort out of Adams--he wasn't finishing blocks or even moving quickly off the line...I hope you are right that its just the first preseason game and he will get better as he learns the position. Hopefully against the Giants, a team he is very familiar with we will get to see the real Flozell.

Too early to start the let's hope that Flozell doesn't make this team thread. But having said that if he doesn't start showing something for the money that he's been signed for...well then I guess all bets are off.

:plus1: Avril is a good speed rusher (Flo has struggled with that for YEARS) so that wasnt the worst thing ever. I wish i could re-watch that. I wanna count Leftys steps on that drop... had to be 8-10. Regardless he was TOO deep and TOO slow to step up. That made Flo look stupid and handed Avril an easy sack.

interesting fact:

in the 2008 draft the steelers had a clear shot to draft cliff avril in the 3rd rounds....a player that was regarded a late first-second round guy as purdue cranks out great 34 OLBs.

but they opted for bruce davis who about 400 days later was no longer in football

In that 2008 draft most of the draft publications said that Bruce Davis could be the next Terrell Suggs based on his UCLA stats ( 26-28 sacks ) so i can see what the front office saw in him. I will say that being from Big-10 country i got to see Avril play quite a bit and i personally thought he had more upside!!

i thought davis would be lucky to be taken in the 5th....3rd was unreal. whatever, just another failed mid round pick

no bullshit, read the thread to see how much i wanted avril lol

He looked like M Starks clone on a few pass plays... flat footed, didn't get his big butt out in front of his guy, got burnt around the corner.... but his spin move is almost as good as mendenhall's

That means 2 false starts and 1 holding call in his 1 quarter of play. :)

Flozelle ain't no gazelle...sounds more like a french brand of filter media through which opposing objects pass easily.(heavy sigh):evilshake:

Flozell will be under a microscope this whole preseason. He'd better be better by
week 3 of the preseason or we will have to go in another direction. I'm expecting better from him next week.
