Curtosy of NFL.game pass and being outside the USA i get to watch ALL the NFL games from every team.
Here's a quick snapshot of my thoughts of the Steelers Giants.
Steelers have an EMBARASSMENT of RICHES at the linbacker position.
Good grief, we are STOCKED here. I was hoping to see Shazier but Sean Spence got the start and feck me, did he make the most of it! He was a man posseed, flying to the ball against the starters, made plays all over. Then when he was pulled, vince Williams came in and you could just hear him muttering to himself, ( my starting ILB position ) and HE was awsome too.
OLB Chris Carter was also fantastic, getting great pressure off the edge and some great moves. Even ( 57 name eludes me for now ) made an impact with a monster hit.
Shamarko thomas... man is he quick, and hits HARD!!
Cam Thomas - was ok nothing special.
Mike Mitchell. Between Mitchell Thomas and Polomalu we seriously have the hardest hitting Safties in the league period!
Offence... Dri ARCHER!!! I've not seen him play before but he was electric! Really impressed.
WR - We seriously have some talented Wr's but still very unclear who is going to make the roster! M Wheaton made a fantastic catch under pressure on a VERY key 3rd down
MIKE ADAMS.. JUST GO!!! He gave up a sack ( to PP ) and was just horrible even when facing second and third string players. I can forgive the sack against PP as PP make a lot of people look stupid, but against the 2nd and third stingers was only when he started to look comfortable, which goes to show the level of his play... 3rd string!
Our O Line startes were pretty damm good. Opening drive opening great holes for Bell/Blount to make full use of. When the second team got in it was VERY noticable. Can't say any 2nd or 3rd string linemen made any case for pushing a starter. Grad ( our 2nd string QB ) couldn't make any throws properly as he was running for his life most the time through our pourous O Line.
Overall despite the loss some very encouraging signs ( even from Landry Jones! LOL ) but it was HUGELY disapointing to see Jennings rip us up for 73 yards, and that our 2nd team o linemen was appaluing!
