It is only exhibition, but which young players are you most interested in seeing. For me it is:

Offense:
Russell and Mendenhall

Defense:
Bruce Davis, Martavius Prince and Kyle Clement

I would really like to see Prince and Clement force some hard decisions on the DL

Definitely Medenhall. I want to see what Timmons looks like at inside LB as well. But all in all, I am excited to see any of the newbies. :2c

I'd like to see the offensive line play more than a series to get some work. The only real decision here is will Hills make the team or not. I want to see this unit play to see what Ben can expect this year. The Steeler's season hinges completely on how well this unit plays week in and week out.

I think they are average, but, if they can be anything above average the Steelers will be successful, IMHO.

i would love it if the o-line was average this year. i think if they are just average than thats good enough. they were horrid last year and they still won the north and should of won a playoff game

How much time do you think Mendenhall and Sweed will see? I guess either way we'll be seeing plenty of Gary Russell which is fine by me.

I'm anxious to see Mendenhall and Sweed


Timmons and Woodley.

I really want to see our starters, just because it's been so long since we've seen them in action. Knowing that most will only have a series or two, I'm also eager to check out Mendenhall and Sweed on offense as well as Timmons, Davis and McBean on the defense. I'm also curious as to what this new punter looks like.

I have a hard time calling them horrid, FWP was leading the league and Ben had his best season ever and, regardless, of how good Ben is at escaping and making plays you won't have your best season behind a horrid line. I'm sticking with an average Oline, a great quarterback and a very good running back, that's my story and I'm staying with it. If they (O-line) can just be consistent it will be an upgrade and Ben/FWP/Holmes can handle the rest.

thats true, i guess im just very critical. 47 sacks is pretty awful though, but there were times where they were good. i guess its just the inconsistency that makes them seem worse than they are in my mind. i do put a lot of blame on the line for fwp's ypc dropping off from past seasons

It is my belief that our O-line and an average back and an average quarterback would win about 5 or 6 games, that's how good I believe that Parker/Ben/Miller/Ward are as players.

The O-line also seemed to pick the most inopportune times to have their "inconsistency" show up and, so, it seemed to magnify their inadequacies.

This is the reason I'm hoping they get more than one series, I'm curious to see what we have.

I would say Timmons and Mendy,but how can anyone not be overjoyed at getting to see the exceptional play of Greg Warren.

ALL OF YOU GUYS!!!

Come party with the SCM in lot B (I think).

SteelerOfDeVille
08-07-2008, 01:43 PM
In order:
Mendenhall, Timmons, Sweed, Russell.

But, that doesn't mean that I don't want to see Woodley and if he is really unblockable.
Or whether Kemo can fill Faneca's shoes. Or if Ryan Clark is healed. Or about a dozen other things that are of interest...

The new punter looks like this:

I wanna see the progress that Steely has made...McBeam is not a rookie anymore...he's got to step it up in year 2. :HeadBanger :Hater :loser :nono :evil:

Wasn't Steely replaced because of a DUI?

Now we have to start all over again. :(

There are a lot of players too choose. Most of the startes and potential starters will not get much time. I do hope they leave the starting Oline longer than Ben. I think they need all the practice time they can get.

I am interested in seeing most of the rookie class from this season.

08-07-2008, 08:42 PM
Without a doubt, I am interested in seeing Mendenhall carry the rock. I would like to see Sweed, Baker and Reid play a bunch. On D, I wanna see what Timmons can do in the middle, and I am intersted to see what the depth looks like on the DL. I am really interested to see Kyle Clement. I have a feeling this kid may stick with this team.

Yes... I agree... But this won't be known till it really counts.....

...Then don't turn on the tv till about 8:30 or so, that's when you'll see most of them...:lol:
Seriously though, I agree, with the exception of Latsko... He won't make the team, IMO.

Russell, Mendenhall, and Sweed.

On offense:

Mendenhall, Sweed, Reid. And the entire O-line to see if they know how to block yet. :lol:

On defense:

Hoke, Timmons, Gay, Woodley.

Right now I'm more interested in positions instead of people. I want to see how our punt returners look, our kickoff returners (although they will only get one chance :lol: ) and most of all the offensive line play ... especially center and tackle.

08-08-2008, 09:04 AM
Obviously Mendenhall and Sweed, but i would like to see some Mewelde, interested in what he can bring, & Dixon & McFadden.

08-08-2008, 09:16 AM
Id like to see Sweed in the red zone. I am hoping we get in the red zone and get Sweed in one on one and throw it up to him....I'm looking forward to seeing if we can add that to our offense...

On defense...I am excited to see Woodley and Timmons....Hopefully what will form the best young lb tandem in the league!

Well, assuming we won't see much of our starters, the main thing I want to see is who can knock Nick Eason off of the roster.

So, basically any of the young DE's who can step up and grab that roster spot.

Shawn

Prediction: McFadden shows ability to be an elite CB this season. I fully expect Mc to bloom into a dominating corner this season.

I am with you SMG, i expect him to have a solid year, hope he gets a chance. Plus, he owes us all for that run blocking he was doing for Cribbs last year :evil:

Along with most of the guys listed, being a Hawkeye, I'm excited to see Mike Humpal.
