Heinz Filed - Pittsburgh, PA
7:30 PM EST

The Steelers looked really impressive last week on both sides of the ball. As great as they looked there are still things to build on and to keep getting better. At this point it looks like the team is really buying into the Tomlin system, or the two-a-days just have them ahead of everyone else right now! :D

What are some things you feel need to be addressed yet? Secondary concerns? LB concerns? Thoughts?

Join us Saturday night here in the Game Day thread to talk about the game!!! :tt02:

Looks like on my TV Guide with Direct TV it shows the game being televised on FSPI which is Fox Sports Pittsburgh. The only question is whether or not it will be blacked out. Not everything that appears on that channel is televised nationally. I will keep my fingers crossed because I really want to watch this game! :crossfingers:

i hope reid doesn't muff any punt returns

i hope we can do better in the red zone, reed isn't a very reliable kicker so i hope he only kicks extra points

i hope barlow gets 0 touches tonight

and i hope everyone stays injury free

HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO

Funny thing is all training camp Reid from what I have heard/read hasn't muffed to many punts....Then in the Hall of Fame game he muffs one then almost fumbles another one....:scratch: I just think he was a little to pumped up and wanted to showcase his skills.....So I'm not that down on him either.....Its just when you see those muffs you started having bad flashbacks from last year with Colclough and Holmes struggles with muffs/fumbles.....:lol:

I too am hoping that Reid's lost his first time jitters, and that Nate shows what he's capable of doing...

Don't wanna see any sacks against us tonight, but sure would like to see at least one against the Pack!

An hour and a half to go!!! I think we've got this one :bigthumb:

I really like what Reid did when he actually got the ball in his hands, like on that screen pass that he gained about ten yards in a hurry. He also muffed a catch on a kickoff but turn it into a good gain. One more thing I like about him, he fumbled a couple but he never lost one like ....................................Coke lol!

Very good points on the 3rd down defense Koopa....Hey I'm pumped anytime the D gets off the field on the 3rd down (pre-season or not).......

Yea Woodley is really picking up the defense and coverage up real nice....Both Jason Gildon and Joey Porter didn't play much their rookie years since they had adjust to dropping into coverage......Sounds like Woodley is going to get a lot of playing time this year....

Mike Tomlin
08-11-2007, 09:23 PM

I expect more crazy and exciting things from Ariens in the regular season...I think this is just the tip of the iceberg of what kind of offense the Steelers might have this year...

Come regular season the mad scientist LeBeau will be sending the doggs for the kill......

I think he played two series......He was in for 15 snaps but only threw two passes.....

Hell Ben could have 400 yards passing and complete 25/30 passes, throw 5 TD passes with 0 INTs in a game and Teemont would complain about Ben's five incompletions...:lol:

Thanks bro, that's good to hear.

yeah Im so excited to see what Bruce has in store for us this year, it's going to be awesome. Hell if the backups are moving the ball this well in preseason I can't wait to see what the starters can do with more playing time.

No problem Top,

I can't wait to see this new offense.....We will run the ball no doubt...But I expect the Steelers to be a complete and balanced offense.....Plus taking smart and big shots down field....

Tunch said that another player fell on the outside of his knee and buckled it to the inside. He was able to get up and walk off under his own power and put some weight on the knee.

Wolf said Hoke is trying to get off the table and get out walking around but the knee is buckling a bit when he walks so the trainers are making him stay off it while they check it further.

i stopped listening and following after the first half

i like what our first team defense is doing, and aside from ben's fumble, the offense did pretty good, sure it was walter young that got the td, but nate or holmes could have done the same lol

i'm not suprised we are losing, our scurbs suck lol

and glad to see russell is still doing good, but why ain't they letting davis play??? **** kuhn he'll never amount to anything :lol:

This game seems to be one of inconsistency...the offense moves the ball then fizzles out, the defense in the 2nd half has been sporatic. There has been some good stuff tonight from Walter Young, Najeh ran hard, Russel is playing hard, Woodley is playing great.

don't keep thinking that dude because this is a new team with new coaches and playbook. Don't make excuses for how a guy throws a ball.....:nono: If it's the intent to keep 3 QB's then they need to give the ball to someone else:yesnod:

Actually it was like their starting QB. They drafted him as a first round pick about 3-4 years ago, the only reason he hasn't been the starter is because Greenbay has a Hall Of Famer in front of him who just won't retire. :dunno: I understood why they cameback at the end of the game

Hello to my friends here.

So I thought I would swing by and throw out an assessment on the game between our two clubs.

Steelers Offense.

I am wondering why Ben got so little work. He was being pressured a lot and I think that had a lot to do with it. Davenpoop seemed to be running the ball OK. I think once Parker returns you guys are going to be fine in the running game. The passing game looked a little suspect with Ben, but hell its pre-season.

Charlie Batch seemed to do a lot better and I think he has our back-up secondary to thank for that. He does throw a nice ball and is a nice back-up for you guys.

After Batch your QB sucks I have to say.

Packers Offense

Did nothing at all. In fact neither starting QB did much of anything. Favre wasn't sacked or picked off so that is good. I do hate blitzes in the preseason though and those totally f$#%ed us up as our young RBs are still learning protections and what not. Brandon Jackson didn't really get much going, but I actually think he is going to be good. James Jones looks like a nice WR for the Packers. IF they have Donald Driver, Greg Jennings and James Jones as their starting three I like that.


Aaron Rodgers got a lot of time in this game and I thought he looked pretty sharp actually. I would credit him with getting the win in the second half.

Steeler Defense

I thought the starters looked good. Your Lbers are great in space and make nice plays against the passing game. I think this Steelers team is not as deep as it once was. That or the Packers are much deeper, which could be the case, but I thought the packers 2nd and 3rd string teams were quite a bit better. Of course the Packers have drafted 35 players in the last 3 years so you would hope we are deep. They totally shut down Favre, but I think the 2 blitzes against our offense helped.

Packers Defense

I think our front seven look great. Jenkins and Kampman were all over Big Ben. We also got three sacks and a turnover. Our secondary was exploited, but it also was without any starting player so I think once they are back in the Packers have a nice chance of having a top ten defense this year. They played without their starting safety and without corners Charles Woodson and Al Harris who would not have allowed some of the plays Batch made. I was very happy with this unit.


All and all it matters very little. I thought our D did a nice job though considering how effective PITT was against the Saints and how they already had played a preseason game and this was the Packers first.

Thoughts?

I think you habve Batch a little under rated. Batch was doing fine. I think he should have gotten another series out of the game. And Aaron Rodgers looked pretty good versus our 3rd and 4th stringers.

Black@Gold Forever32
08-13-2007, 08:19 PM
Ok the Steelers are tinkering with new things on offense...plus how can the starters get in sync with such little work.......The Steelers also had 3 new starters among their offensive line.....

So I'm not taking to much good or bad from this game since its just pre-season...

Packer Addict

True, but I thought Rodgers moved the Ball pretty well against the 2nd string with our second string offense.

Batch is good, I agree. The ball to Holmes was really nice.

I'm not saying they were bad. I mean the Packer 1st string offense had 4 new players so it is no wonder then that neither offense could move the ball.

I guess your offense looked fine against the Saints and now very good against us. I think our defense played a nice role in that.
