Nothing much that hasn't been said already.

Offensive line looks awful, what else is new. Praying that nobody on that starting line gets injured because if we think they're bad now, multiply it by a thousand when the backups needs to start coming in and everybody moves around. Even Pouncey was getting knocked around tonight.

Ben looks like how Ben usually looks. Makes some terrible plays, then comes back and makes an amazing play. Not much of a surprise there.

Speaking of Ben's terrible plays, I can not take another lopsided year in turnovers. Offense needs to stop putting the ball on the ground (or into the hands of defensive players) and the defense needs to start making some things happen. At least get into the plus column for turnovers this year, boys..

Sanders looked pretty sharp. Excited to see what he brings to the team as he moves up in the roster this year. I've been waiting for him to get more involved in the offense, and think this year he'll capitalize on the chance he's been given.

Secondary..... yeah. We'll see how that goes.

As far as the running game goes, I was not too impressed with Bell tonight. I know we didn't get to see much of him but I'm personally a Dwyer fan. Hopefully Bell is alright though and we'll get to see a little more out of him before the season starts.

Uhh...I'm sure there's much more but that's all I can come up with right now. Gotta go watch the Buccos :)

Wheaton looked good and so did Shamarko Thomas and Jones made another splash play on defense, but the OL was horrific.
The Buccos need to watch over their shoulders at the Diamondbacks, who just might catch them for the final playoff spot.

Offensive line, as usual was horrible. Thomas is a monster and Jones needs to get more pressure on the QB. Hood is still a no show which isn't a surprise and William Gay reminded us tonight as of why he was let go a couple years ago. Didn't seem like Haley tried to get Ben into a rhythm probably due to see what he had in Bell come game time. But, Ben needs to get into a game day rhythm when the season starts. I know it is preseason, but, the offense was down right pathetic again in this one. Wheaton looked good also along with Moye.

This is and has been a declining disciplined team for 3 years now, and it all starts with the head coach, the head coach the head coach, period, that is a big part of Pittsburgh's problem, there is no rhythm, in the offense at all, and you can trace that back to last year. Better get ready for a rebuilding year, because we definitely haven't reloaded.

Oline looks to be the worst in the league. Couldn't push ****, protect or block anything. No way does ben play all 16 games. This team looks bad on offense. Jarvis and shamarco look as good as advertised. Bell looks like he's running with fear and now he's hurt. Freaking great.....sigh

Ben I think is on drugs... He did say they are not showing any real offense to the reporter.. no kidding.

Gay was standing at the TD scene again...

Whimper, Milwacki need to leave Tuesday. Zero answer there..

Where was Howling??

Shamarko was awesome, Jones played nice, Dwyer is the RB or Backup??, Batch is worth something, Wheaton is a rookie starter awesome, Arnfelt (69) does he stay, he mauls the OL... Landry Jones is not comfortable, he may surprise later on.

Did I say Shamarko...

I usually don't worry much during preseason. But, this is really bad. I mentioned in last night's game threads the problems are not an issue of just drop passes, or missing a route. These problems are more than that, and they are many:

- Penalties. need first down taken away, no problem. Need to get out of the other teams' red zone - backwards, no problem.
- Turnovers - here is a few. We will take some from you too, not many, but don't worry, we won't do anything with it.
- Injuries - bad luck? Poor execution? Bad communication? Who knows, they keep piling up.
- Need some special teams plays, forget about it.
- Do you need to get through into the backfield to stop a run or cream the QB? Let me get out of your way.
- Yeah, we are going to own you on the clock. And we are going to score 3 points just about every third of fourth drive.

The first two drives were comical. Sacks, injuries, penalties, etc. It was sloppy, undisciplined, and embarrassing. Preseason or not, that was horrible football. And these are all problems anyone of us could have predicted, and yet they manifest themsleves worse than ever. They can only get better. Gradkowski hit the ref with the football - only the Steelers can do that. Yes, I am pessimistic at this point. I hope they improve. If not, they are going to get slaughtered every game.

On a positive note, the LB looked pretty good. Despite the OL, the running game seems to work, and I don't think the Steelers wasted any time outs or mismanaged the clock.

Here is hoping to some improvement for the last game.

Couple of things I noticed.

- First and foremost, the o-line needs some help, however I do think that they'll improve. As its been mentioned a million times already, we only have one person returning at the same position as last year. Furthermore, they are learning a new blocking system and they played one of the better front-7s in the League... I think they'll be fine. I do not like how Gilbert is looking though.

- Paulson is a very good receiving TE, but my god he is rubbish at blocking.

- Sanders might very well be our best WR right now; he is looking very sharp. Speaking of WRs, Wheaton looks like the real deal too.

- On the subject of rookies! I feel like they are dropping Jarvis Jones back into coverage far more than what they would have done in a regular season game. I can only assume that this is because he needs the experience doing so. He actually did a decent job doing so, although he can look awfully slow in open Space from time to time.
When he rushes the passer, I feel like he is engaging too high. He is FAR to easy to push out of balance. He does appear to be around the ball though, which is good.

- Same can be said about Thomas. He is just all over the place when given the chance. He is a keeper!

- Our d-line is shady... Hood is horrible and while I'm a Heyward fan, he needs to start showing more. Not really feeling McClendon either.

- Landry Jones had a very very nice game. I was impressed with his footwork and he made some ok decisions. He could become a solid backup if he continues to grow.

It is certainly too early to panic, but do not confuse panic with reason for concern.

The O-Line did look good in week 1, but the Giants pass rush was significantly slowed down because LSH ran the ball so successfully. If we cannot establish a consistent run game, there is no hope of protecting Ben. When the run was/is successful it is usually due to cut backs, and counter plays, any type of run moving straight ahead doesn't seem to be too effective.....for now.

Pouncey - expect MUCH better
Adams - Really? Really? Last night was horrendous. Show me some improvement. I will say he seemed to improve with more reps last year, hopefully that holds true this year.

I thought the D was decent for the most part. Arnfelt had another good game, and I thought I saw Woods being active for a few more plays again last night. At this rate either should start over Hood.

The rookies are all impressive, I'm not worried about Bell, other than the fact he cannot stay on the field.

In addition to his explosiveness from the safety position Thomas seems to be very capable of coverage up near the line of scrimmage as well which I wasn't exactly aware he could do effectively.

People have every right to be concerned (and obviously have their own opinions). The overreactions and insane notions are just annoying. I understand if people have questions about the O line, I certainly do, and last night certainly didn't help answer those questions... But for people to make these claims after one preseason game is just silly. Especially taking into consideration that they looked a lot better the week before.

At this rate, the Steelers might be checking the waiver wire for running backs to have enough warm bodies on the roster for the rest of training camp.

The Steelers suffered three more injuries to their running backs Monday night in their second preseason game.

Nine days after his Steelers debut was postponed due to a left knee bruise, rookie running back Le'Veon Bell got the starting nod, but his stay on the field against the Washington Redskins was brief.

Bell, a second-round draft pick from Michigan State, left after the first drive with a foot injury and did not return. Coach Mike Tomlin described it as a mid-foot injury and said Bell will have an MRI today.

The first four plays for the Steelers were handoffs to Bell, who gained 9 yards. Bell and veteran Isaac Redman were listed as co-starters this week, but Redman did not dress after getting a stinger in practice last week.

Late in the first half, starting fullback Will Johnson injured his ribs when he received a hard hit over the middle. He did not return. In the third quarter, Baron Batch left with a stinger. In addition, LaRod Stephens-Howling, the leading rusher in the preseason opener against the New York Giants, has a knee strain and did not dress.

With the others banged up, Jonathan Dwyer got plenty of work and ran 14 times for 68 yards in three quarters.

"I was hoping Red and LaRod would go in the dressing room and get dressed up," Dwyer said afterward with a smile. "That's what I had to do. I had to step up and take responsibility to do what I had to do for my room and my team."

Dwyer ran especially well behind the first-team offensive line early.

"It was good," he said. "I wasn't supposed to go for three [quarters]. I had fun. We were moving the ball really well. We were beating ourselves."


Ben undaunted

The first-team offense has yet to account for a touchdown in two preseason games, but quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is not concerned about the lackluster performances.

"Our goal the first two games, no game plan, we said let's feature the back and establish an identity and run the ball," Roethlisberger said. "That's why I'm not putting too much stock into what's happening out there. There are a lot of plays in the passing game we're not taking advantage of because we're trying to run the ball."


Jones impressive

Rookie linebacker Jarvis Jones, the No. 1 pick out of Georgia, forced a fumble in the first half and played a lot of snaps with the first-team defense. This came one week after he recovered a fumble against the Giants.

"Anytime we can get the ball out and give our offense a chance to score some points, it's great for us," Jones said. "It's been good. I'm learning. I still have a long way to go. Our defense is so complex. But I'm learning.

"The older guys are helping me. I just have to continue to believe in myself and have confidence and keep grinding and working hard. I just have to continue to go out there and give it my all and find my role."

Count veteran linebacker LaMarr Woodley among those Jones has impressed.

"Jarvis is making a lot of big-time plays out there," Woodley said. "He is going to continue to make plays. He is still learning the defense.

"I think Jarvis is going to be good. He is getting better and better each game."


Another Jones impresses, too

Fourth-round pick Landry Jones, who has struggled in training camp, entered in the second half and led the Steelers to their first touchdown drive. Jones completed a 10-yard touchdown pass to Derek Moye to complete an eight-play, 76-yard drive. It was the first touchdown the offense produced in the preseason.

"He did a good job, got his first touchdown and completed a lot of good passes," Roethlisberger said.


Homecomings

New special-teams coach Danny Smith, who spent the past nine seasons in the same role with the Redskins, shook hands with members of Washington's coaching staff and others on the field before the game. Also returning to Fed Ex Field was safety Ryan Clark, who played for the Redskins in 2004 and 2005. Clark, who wears No. 25, still dons a No. 21 practice jersey in honor of former Redskins teammate Sean Taylor, who died in 2007.


Moorman unimpressive

Free-agent punter Brian Moorman, battling with incumbent Drew Butler, had punts of 40 and 36 yards. Moorman and Butler were listed as co-starters this week. Moorman handled the punting in the first half; Butler in the second.


Inactives

Other that did not dress for the Steelers: cornerback Cortez Allen (knee), linebackers Stevenson Sylvester (ankle) and Sean Spence (knee), offensive lineman Justin Cheadle (hamstring) and tight ends Heath Miller (knee), David Johnson (knee) and Matt Spaeth (foot).

The defense has looked solid overall. Special Teams struggled in game one due to two players who most likely won't make the team. The offensive line was solid in game 1, struggled in game 2. The first team offense hasn't even got past the most basic sh*t you can call. Come regular season and the offense wont look remotely close to what has been shown so far in the preseason. I guarantee you that. They've been testing out a new run blocking scheme and new backs. Seriously people need to chill out and understand what's going on. It's just ignorant.

That's fine, I can respect that. The sh*t that annoys me is all the overreactions from last game. It's sad. Especially the "Bell is injury prone" "we can't draft RBs" sh*t. Everyone knows I wasn't a fan of the Bell pick but that's ridiculous.

anyone who thinks the offensive line is going to be fine based on one preseason game is an idiot. Anyone that thinks the offensive line is bad based on one preseason game is a moron.

This team's offensive line has not been consistently good for 3 seasons now. At best, they are inconsistent. And at their worst, they are consistently bad. People swore that just because the team already spent a couple high draft picks on the OL that the OL would be fine and no other attention would be necessary. When in reality, the offensive line will be good when it's good, not when the team has spent a couple high picks that end up not panning out.

This team has one of the worst OL in the league and will therefore have one of the worst pass offenses in the league. Prepare for the pain this season. 7-9 at best.

wow. lot of doom and gloom.

I will say that if the O-line ends up stinking up the joint this year, it's time to explore the possibilities that the coaches (not just coach) of the O-line need to be dismissed. Too many years with subpar O-line play is an indication of bad coaching.

If you think this team is gonna suck, you're right. The def will average 40 min a game because we have no oline, no running game and a bunch of alt receivers at wr. We have nothing and will be lucky to win 5 games. Can't wait for drafft day. Tomlin needs to go if we miss the playoffs again. Acrub...

So because you named three teams out of 31 that have a worst offensive line than the Steelers, then that means the Steelers offensive line isn't one of the worst in the league? Are you dumb or just doing your duty as resident cheerleader?

somethings never change. There will always be members who come on to post negativity when negativity exists, and there will always be those who blindly suck off Mike Tomlin, smile and ask for more.

"hahaha you're so clever Big T."
"Not as clever as you Banana boy. Let's suck each other while listening to a Tomlin postgame interview."
"Sounds great."
