    I thought gradkowski and jones looked pretty bad. Especially jones. Do we still have batch on speed dial?
    Cleveland Browns suck!

    Jones looked waaay better then last season. Now that second and third O-line units, that's another topic.

    ^^^ agree with this. Jones looked much more improved than last year, and grad had issues simply because he was running for his life due to our POOR 2nd/3rd string o line.

    Currently watching Lions - Browns.

    Anyone got any questions about my thoughts on anything particular with the browns/lions ??

    My first thought is, please can the steelers hire the Lions 2nd string OL as THEY are impressive! Dan Orvalosky is getting all kinds of time to throw the ball. They are a WALL!!!!

    It's really hard to tell anything by pre-season game 1. They don't tend to plan and scheme against the other team as much as they would for a regular season game. This is all about getting guys some reps, knocking off the rust and most of all, staying healthy.

    Punting could lose us a game or two if not fixed.

    Why is it so hard for the Steelers to find a capable punter?

    Also, a little disappointed in Susiham. Missed FG and still not getting touch-backs.

    Silly if you ask me. There's no college punters looking for jobs?

    You could find a punter in high school better than the junk we've put on the field. How many division 1 teams are there and they all have punters. Even division 2 and 3 teams have punters and there's not a whole lot of difference between punters there and any other punter in the world. This is just getting rediculous. Hold an open tryout! Man it's frustrating.

    I actually thought Wing was fine. He had one where we punted from around the Giants 35 and hit it inside the 10 and bounced back to the 12. I will take it. That hurt his average along with one truly awful punt as well. The rest he boomed nicely.

    I thought Wing was a little underwhelming overall but outside of that one terrible punt I think he was fine.
