    Too bad he wasted his annual INT in preseason.



    I was actually fairly impressed with Dwyer. Maybe he will finally become the back I had hoped he could become, but I'm not holding my breath.


    Despite some nice plays, our Defense has issues.

    I actually like what Haley was doing with that little overload or bunch package. He had some interesting runs and also tried to set up some passes out of it. It actually looked like some thought went into running more than just giving it lip service. Hopefully it will ultimately translate into more points in the red zone.

    I hope not, but also don't forget he got rid of Urbik who appears to be a solid starter in Buffalo. Plus he brought in Jon Scott. How'd that work out?
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Essex was horrendous. Never saw a lineman so overpowered. If his only strong point is position flexibility then give me inflexibility.

    I thought Gilreath, Robinson (more pressure, even if he is a one trick pony), Ford, Dwyer, and Jerrod Johnson all looked good.

    Ta'Amu was too easily pushed out on several plays, Beachum looks awful, CBs Frederick and Curtis Brown were terrible.
    1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
    2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
    3c Keith McGill CB Utah
    4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
    5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
    5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
    6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
    7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
    7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon

    Brown has been a disappointment. Last year, some of y'all were calling for Brown to be starting opposite Ike, saying things like "he just might be the best CB on the roster." But if not for his ST contributions, I think he'd be in danger of getting cut.

As much as I hated to see what Luck did against the defense (1st and 2nd teams), it was good to see a quarterback that comes into the league with some notoriety actually play up to a level that you would expect. I hope he does well.

    He's aiight... but I think Lebeau did him a favor by calling off the dogs.

    Yeah, Brown has been among the most disappointing players to this point of the preseason. If not for his pedigree and special teams ability, combined with the lack of depth behind him, his spot could be in jeopardy, but I think he'll get at least one more year and hopefully show that his coverage ability is better than what we've seen so far.

    I think Golden is the most impressive bubble guy of the preseason.

    2) Jordan Matthews-WR Vandy
    3) Chris Borland-ILB Wisconsin

    5b) Ryan Carrethers-NT Arkansas State
    6) Jeff Janis-WR Saginow Valley State
    6b) Seantrel Henderson, OT MIami
    7) Colt Lyerla -TE Oregon

    His career has been very Keenan Lewis-eque to this point. Maybe, hopefully, he just needs time.

    Ford looked like a hybrid Bettis/Foster. Very nimble for a tank. Where the hell did we find him?
