    Exclamation Eagles vs. Steelers - Preseason Game 2 - 8/18/11




    Preseason game #2 for the Steelers has them squaring off against their intrastate rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles.

    The Eagles have made a lot of noise in the offseason by signing big name free agents in an effort to bolster their team. This will be a nice test for the Steelers to see how they stack up against a talented roster. Based on their performance in the first game vs. Washington, I'm sure they are looking to rebound with a much better performance.

    Both starting units figure to see more playing time this Thursday evening, potentially both playing about half way into the 2nd quarter or maybe more.

    Hope to see some improvements in the secondary and offensive line today..(for as long as they're in the game).

    The Eagles will certainly test them.

    Mike Tomlin held his final press conference of training camp 2011 and was much more interesting today than he was at his PC last week:

    © Tomlin said Troy Polamalu and James Harrison will play Thursday against Philadelphia after sitting against Washington.

    © The starters are expected to see 20 to 25 snaps.

    © Tony Hills will get the start at RG.

    © Emmanuel Sanders, Cortez Allen, Crezdon Butler, Bryant McFadden, Ike Taylor, Chris Kemoeatu and Mario Harvey are out as of now. That list could be added to later.

    © Tomlin did not discount having his kickers boot the ball shorter to allow for returns to get a look at his special teams coverage units.

    © Tomlin also said he wants to get an extended look at Jonathan Dwyer in this game.

    I really want to see the team go after Philly's corners: Test them and see what they can do. Who cares if they pick some passes off, the game is meaningless. See if they can be exposed or if they are weak on any sort of play; you never know if you might go up against them in the SB.
