    I like it. Now take out the injured and move them down the depth chart and that changes everything.

    Interesting how Tomlin puts things, the man will never commit to anyone as a "starter" but rather they are given an opportunity to play in that role.

    He talked about Rainey saying that he'll be given the chance to perform as the return man but laughingly said "he's not trusted just yet, he's a young guy".

    Steelers begin another season with questions surrounding the Offensive Line. Starks' durability is one. If he goes down,will Adams be ready to fill his shoes? If Ben is not well protected, he will resort to scrambling and the new offense may sputter. Let's hope not. Depth at the ILB positions on defense is also a concern, though less of one than the OL.

    Would love to see Heyward starting opposite Kiesel. Hood would be better as a rotational 3rd down end also.

    Better, but still not exactly starter material yet. He'll come around though.
    However much you think you know about football, rest assured that Skip Bayless knows more!

    Who else wants to see Rainey light it up against the Broncos for some big returns. If he can just break a tackle or two and get to open space it's going to be six points every time. I wonder how his nerves will be before the game though, especially if the Steelers win the toss and take the ball first. No muffing the kicks man, just catch it first and then take off.
