Harrison, Clark, Decastro, Mendenhall

I really don't think that Clark gets enough credit for what he brings to the D. I do think this team is average, but last night is not a true indicator of how this team will play this year.

Plus Foster and Gilbert didn't make it out of the 1st quarter...Legursky isn't a starting quality RG, and Adams isn't a starting quality RT.

This team can and WILL get better as the season progresses. Few preseason games lead to early difficulties.

Also, get Mendy on the field, put Batch on PS squad and get an 8th OL for game day. Embarrassing when we constantly are down to out last 5 OL. We don't need 5 Rbs on the dang roster. You can find RBs all over the waiver wire to fill out a roster if someone gets hurt.

I actually thought Adams played alright until the very last series. I am interested to see what Starks, Colon, Pouncey, Decastro, Gilbert could turn into if they all were able to stay healthy.

It may be a long season then; Decastro is out for 6 games or 8 games or whatever it is; Harrison probably isn't playing anytime soon; Mendenhall had a torn ACL 8 months ago, I doubt he's ready any time soon and we get Clark back for the Jets.

The good news is that Sanchez hasn't impersonated Peyton Manning in his career, so the defense should look a bit mroe effective thi supcoming week.

Not if they can't stop the run any better than last night.

Good post.

yes, that was a good post by Big Rob and I completely agree. add in the fact that Casey Hampton, Max Starks and Mike Wallace missed most if not all of preseason and you can see why this was going to be a difficult game for us.

but hey, I'm just a naysayer who should root for another team so what do I know?

The bad news is he doesn't have to - until proven otherwise he just has to impersonate Tebow.

Since we're being optimists here I have to say that our time of possession in that 3rd quarter is still a thing of beauty.

The Broncos out-scored the Steelers 7 to 3 in the 3rd quarter last night.

Way to kill the optimism! ;)

All that praying I did for the Pirates reaching .500 put God in a tough position.

It doesn't look like that will last much longer either, so hopefully we will have the Steelers back to their winning ways soon!

Maybe the Jets will just start Tebow :confused: since he has had success against the Steelers :stirpot

A. Peterson had MCL and ACL tears at the same time as Mendenhall and Peterson ripped it up yesterday for the Vikes. I know every player heals at their own pace but just sayin recovery can be quick.
