Howdy y'all, the game thread is now here! It's going to be great to see the Steelers play again! I'm Rick, a resident PITA, (pain in the ass) over at the Trib, that is not a troll, I'm only 49, but every year I am thankful to see another year. I was asked to move the thread here, and I like the server and hopefully it turns out to be the best game thread online.

Been a rough off season, many problems, mistakes, the HC and FO not doing the things some feel they should. Our Steelers in my opinion are not the powerhouse team we've grown accustom to. I feel our Steelers are going the wrong direction, and it will be a few years before we return to rule the AFC. It's a cycle thing, it's our turn to fall from grace and recycle for a few years, get the right players and then make another run. Our HC and GM are green and their decision making over the past 18 months shows how green they are. The signing of Simmons last week before the season last year was a bad move. Trying to sign Marvell this year before the 1st game, a mistake if it is done. These last minute desperate moves usually end in disaster. Marvell had his run here, time for him to milk someone else.

The first game of the season will say a lot. The OL this year is our glaring weakness, and after watching our QBs get sacked 93 times the last two years shows how bad our OL is. The talent level on the OL is gone, we are starting back ups, and holding on to old past their prime players that lack speed but command major money. Kendall Simmons and Marvell are both players who should have packed up and left after last season, but we didn't see it. Then there is our center position, Mahan is gone, all we got now is often injured, never recovered from last 2 injuries Justin Hartwig, who showed us in preseason he is not ready to start, he is lost out there, and he lacks upper body strength. Justin is not the answer at center, you will all see he is not as good as Mahan was last year. Today Justin has the chance of a lifetime, starting center for the Steelers, and I don't think he's got what it takes to anchor our line. Leads me to Willie Colon, the made is made to be a guard, he played back up guard and played it well, and he is our RT. He gets beat routinely by speed rushers, and usually his guy gets to Ben first physically, Marvell's guy flushes Ben, Willies guy tries to contain Ben. Our OL is weak, not stand out talent is left. WE have a RT starting at LT and backup starting at LG, a questionable center due to injuries 2 years ago, a diabetic RG who causes more trouble then any other starting guard in the league, and then our legit LG starts at RT. Yeah we're ready to play football.

Well I hope you like the game thread and I would like to get some volunteers to cover different parts of the game. The game is normally online, so why duplicate ball placement and time? Why not have a group of 4 handling different parts of the game, like OL and DL for one, QB and LB for the other, WRs and DBs, and special teams. I'll take OL/DL unless someone else wants it. The idea is to enjoy the game and giving your insight on how our Steelers are really doing.

Above all no fighting please, lets work together and keep the focus on the Steelers. Save the fighting for the other threads. Lets enjoy the game.

Rick, I'll do my best, but I can't guarantee that I can focus on just one aspect... That will be tough...

On a sidenote, I'm glad you're here brother.

My concerns are the O-line (obviously), the secondary (I think they give up too many passes that they shouldn't), and the D-line (age and depth will probably be an issue down the road later in the season).

Rickt011
09-07-2008, 12:48 PM
The idea is not how good you are, we're not professionals, we're fans,and this is your chance to say what you want, express yourself. Give your 2 cents worth. If you make a mistake, who cares? Someone will correct it. Take your pick on what to do. I think it's going to be a good game, but I'm not so sure we win. I like my 21-20 last minute TD for us wins it. But their D may have a career day against our OL.

If our DL/front 7 do their job the DBs will look great! If the front 7/DL doesn't make a difference, the DBs will be torched. We need to pressure the QB and force him to make mistakes. We can not give him 5-10 seconds to make a play. We need to get in his face often and let him know football is a mans game.

So far, so good.

Didn't see much of the game action in pre-season. But this is nothing how that looked. The Steelers appeared to tip no hands to what they would do during the season beforehand.

Back to the action...that call sucked!!!

The OL hasn't looked too bad so far against that vaunted Texans front DL. So far the O looks really good all the way around. By the way, any word yet on Brady's injury?

Rickt011
09-07-2008, 01:39 PM
So far the OL is handling the pressure well, only a few mistakes made by the left side. No holes for RBs and Ben has seen pressure.

Ben is also getting much faster release from the pocket. This might cover for a lot of sins from the OL.

They must of seen something left and used it. The OL is not having a great game. They are average to below average over all, but the last few runs that drive they actually pushed the LOS forward and made the play work. If they can do that every game, then we have a
shot at great things. But this OL is way questionable.
