    What Was The Newest, Freshets, Surprise Of The Eagle's Preseason Game ?

    There were a few. The most notable to me was the 3rd and long hand-off to Rainey. Man, he took off. Bam....first down. That would have never happened in the past. I think that caught the D totally off guard.

    The most disappointing was the sound of suck as they tried to stuff the ball up the middle at the goal line. I think that was not something that wound normally be done. I think Haley was just testing the waters to see what they were capable of.

    What were your most memorable plays?

    Chris Rainey's 57 yd sprint down the field was pretty impressive, man that kid has got some serious jets on him.

    Al Wood's interception..gave me flashbacks of Denver's Keith Trailer running with the ball looking like he was ready to fall over and trying to find someone to toss it too..LOL

    I'll agree that it's great to be a Steelers fan in 2012, but it doesn't have anythng to do with what we saw last night. I'm not saying the sky is falling or there weren't any bright spots. Just that impressed isn't a word I would use to describe the first preseason game of the 2012 season.

    I remember the entire 2005 preseason were the Steelers offense looked like complete and utter garbage........Man it was all doom and gloom after that preseason.....The Steelers only went on to win the Super Bowl that year.....Only thing I care about in the preseason is the health of the football team....Can't out of preseason without many injuries....
