I know it's preseason, but so far, our starting units don't look too sharp.

Yeah, Mundy looks good. I sometimes forget how strong an arm Lefty has. Wow.

considering Mundy keeps showing up after allowing catches, I'd have to disagree.

Mundy's the safety, he's doing what he's supposed to do, make the tackle.

That's a great way to have a porous defensive secondary.

He's still a defensive back. He is supposed to defend the pass.

D-Rock, I guess I just wasn't paying attention, to me he just didn't look lost in coverage and he was making some sure tackles.

Ugh.....

I'm stuck watching KC / TB. Although I like Howie Long and Billick together as announcers. Don't know who the other midget is.

Seems like the Redskins are rolling out the "standard offense" against the Steelers. Get rid of the ball quick so the pass rush is nullified and exploit the secondary and take whatever they give you because the DBs don't actually cover anyone.

I think we need to get use to seeing lots of that this season.

I'm not trying to call you out or anything...and it's impossible to really know whats going on just from watching on tv, but when I see a guy showing up a couple steps after the receiver makes the catch on every other throw I have to assume they are going that way because his coverage is not very tight.

'Skins look like they game planned this game, the Steelers look like they just showed up and lined up. At least in the first half.

Mundy can't cover, nor can Clark, Lewis or Butler- and against a bad football team.

It's okay to be honest about it.

if I'm honest about it I would have to admit that what you're saying is true.

Their actual team played more than twice as long as our actual team did. And they apparently have better future FedEx drivers than we do. :wink:

On the positive side of things, the best part of the game was the end.

its easy to grin when your ship comes in
and you've got the stock market beat
but the man worthwhile, is the man who can smile
when his shorts are too tight in the seat

I've had that in my sig since the lockout ended (and I ditched the Chris Kluwe pic for my usual Ruthless Gladiator pic), but I've considering changing to the following (not sure if it will fit, though, since there is a character limit to our sigs):

What you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

sorry, got sigs turned off.

Tomlin not happy with Steelers’ preparation

Posted by Michael David Smith on August 13, 2011

After the Steelers lost their preseason opener to the Redskins, Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin offered a simple assessment of what went wrong: His team wasn’t as well prepared as Mike Shanahan’s team.

“That was not the kind of performance we were looking for or hoping for,” Tomlin said. “Quite frankly, we got outplayed in just about all areas – blocking, tackling, running, throwing, kicking. That team was better prepared tonight than us, and they showed it.”

Tomlin said he gave the starters the usual amount of playing time for the first preseason game but thought they came out looking ill-prepared.

“It just wasn’t very pretty, and we all bear responsibility for that, starting with myself,” Tomlin said.

One player, receiver Antonio Brown, was singled out for praise after having four catches for 64 yards.

“Antonio Brown appears to be in great physical condition, but we knew that before we stepped into the stadium tonight,” Tomlin said.

And as for everyone else?

“I look forward to this group responding to what we put out there tonight and understand that we have a lot of ground to cover,” Tomlin said. “Such is life. I’ll expect these guys to respond accordingly, and we’ll go back to work, we’ll assess this performance and it needs to be better quickly.”
