Steelers vs Bills
Ralph Wilson Stadium
August 25, 2012 7pm EST

Listen to the Steelers Radio Network (http://www.steeleraddicts.com/listen-live-to-the-pittsburgh-steelers-on-gameday/)


The starters are expected to play at least the first half, and possibly longer depending on what Coach Mike Tomlin sees out of them.

“I want to see them execute,” said Tomlin of the starting offense, who have only played five series so far in the preseason. “That’s always the case, but particularly in this third game, they are going to work at least a half. I expect to see a quality half of football.”

Linebacker Chris Carterhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/chris-carter/298a3217-156c-47b2-bc9f-550abc0a810b/) will start his third preseason game at outside linebacker in place of James Harrisonhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/james-harrison/f955db12-de79-47a3-9c61-d50c2583d49b/), who is still on the physically unable to perform list and won’t play against the Bills.

Tomlin said there are still some decisions to be made about how much playing time some players coming off injuries will get against the Bills, but four players have definitely been ruled out. Running backs
Rashard Mendenhallhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/rashard-mendenhall/3e1ac879-3146-46f4-946b-216532a371b1/) and Jason Fordhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/jason-ford/08642b6b-dde0-47ac-a7a9-57ab8ca64504/) along with Harrison and fellow linebacker Stevenson Sylvesterhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/stevenson-sylvester/4de7311d-1644-4c73-8521-9298d2c8b9df/) will be out of action as they won’t even make the trip to Buffalo.

“Other than that, I like to keep the door open at this time of year for all potential participants,” said Tomlin. “Obviously some have better chances than others. Casey Hamptonhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/casey-hampton/179448fb-c7b4-43ee-82db-14d8d6f9eab3/) just came off the PUP list. Even though he is traveling, he is probably not going to play. Most of the other situations we will play by ear and see what will happen as we get close to game time.”

The quarterback rotation has not been finalized after
Ben Roethlisbergerhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/ben-roethlisberger/54dda34e-9e43-4c57-9397-1143ddced5d6/) starting, but Tomlin did say that Jerrod Johnsonhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/jerrod-johnson/3d8c50f2-06de-4d50-982e-da41a152fa74/) will not play this week. Charlie Batchhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/charlie-batch/a4741ee1-4d87-4810-aa6d-7ede57104771/) and Byron Leftwichhttp://www.steelers.com/assets/nflimg/icon-article-link.gif (http://www.steelers.com/team/roster/byron-leftwich/1c056731-bcbb-4953-acad-047f272bf685/) both sat out a week of the preseason as well.

We might see an awful lot of those this season. I've been reading a lot of old threads on various KC sites and that was a frequent complaint. Cassell and Palko would complete passes that were frequently only good for a yard or two.

The offense doesn't look good at all. I haven't even seen a deep pass down field. The O-line is not built for smash mouth or a dink and dunk style of offense. I don't see a whole lot of points being scored this year.

Hey all! Haven't been here in a while. I have to say this season scares me. The D isn't as tough as I was hoping and I think the O-line is going to be a disaster again. Truth be told, I'm worried Ben is going to get injured early on in the season.

Im not worried about the offense or defense right now, I'm worried about the injuries.

Teams typically play very vanilla base type of offense/defense in the pre-season. They don't start adding the wrinkles and tricks until they start game planning for week 1. Plus, they are still learning the new offense, so they may look a bit off kilter for a few weeks yet.

I would say part of the reason our offense frequently looked out of sync was because of Ben always trying to make something from nothing. THere should be a happy medium. There are times when you have to throw it away, use a check down, and a time to extend the play. Unfortunately what we've seen so far has removed what makes Ben great in exchange for 1-2 yard passes that amount to a bunch of 3 and outs.

Those kind of plays aren't always for this series. Next time we're in a 3rd and 5, the Bills may play a step further back and open up something in the middle.

I understand but at the same time that is what makes Ben special....Ben has helped this team win a ton of games in his career so I don't want to see him changed to much......I agree doesn't hurt for him to hit the check more once in awhile.....But for the most part let Ben just be Ben.....

Defense is slowly getting back in to it. I really like how Allen has looked so far. Same with Carter, although he still has ways to go.

As for the offense. I honestly think Ben looks confused out there. Lets disregard the time-out for a sec:
First of all, he is staring down WRs.
Secondly, when hes first option is gone, he is very slow at progressing between his targets.
Thirdly, he generally looks like he is not comfortable out there. Not at all animated and not many smiles.

Now, this is obviously the pre-season, so we don't know exactly what to expect in the regular season.

Now that is how you play offense. None of this dink and dunk crap or smash mouth football. The o-line is not good enough to play those styles. The o-line is just good enough to block for intermediate and quick three step drop back passing routes.
