Steelers Finalize Cuts

Steelers Final cuts: T Tony Hills, CB Crezdon Butler, P Jeremy Kapinos, TE John Gilmore, DE J.Crittenton.

Surprising? Maybe a few.

Crezdon Butler - Butler had a decent preseason but he never separated himself from the pack like many thought. He did have a 95-yard pick six but apparently that wasn't enough for Coach Tomlin. Let's hope Butler clears waivers because this kid still has potential.

Tony Hills - This is a bit of a surprise to me.  It's been reported that Hills came into camp in the best shape of his career and he performed well during preseason at both Tackle and Guard.  He even started at RG for two games.  I would rather have Hills starting at RG than Legursky.

Jeremy Kapinos - Many thought that he outperformed Daniel Sepulveda but I disagree.  Sepulveda does have injury concerns.

This completes the Pittsburgh Steelers Cuts for the 2011 season.  Here are the other cuts.  Baraka Atkins, Mario Harvey, Chris McCoy and Mortty Ivy, defensive lineman Corbin Bryant, defensive backs Brett Greenwood, Macho Harris, Donovan Warren and Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith, running backs James Johnson and John Clay, offensive linemen Colin Miller, Kyle Jolly, John Malecki, Trevis Turner and Keith Williams, wide receivers Armand Robinson, Wes Lyons and Tyler Grisham, tight end Jamie McCoy and kicker Swayze Waters.

Steelers vs Falcons – Things to Look For

The Atlanta Falcons will face the Pittsburgh Steelers tonight at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.  This will be the Steelers third preseason game and you'll see the starters play the 1st half and the roster will begin to finalize for those on the "bubble".

Tonights game will be broadcasted by the NFL Network at 7:30 EDT. Also be sure to check out the Planet Steelers Forum and participate in our popular Game Day Chat during all games.

Here are a few players to pay special attention to during tonight's game:

Tony Hills - The tackle from the University of Texas in now a 4th year player and it's now or never for him.  Hills came into training camp in great shape and has played inspired during practice and the last 2 preseason games.  Hills can play tackle as displayed against the Philadelphia Eagles or guard.  Hills has been so impressive that he appears to be the front runner for the RG position. Tonight, Hills is starting at RG.

Antonio Brown - What else can you say about the youngster?  The guy has seized every opportunity in training camp and preseason.  He is continuing right where he left off last year but now he may be in the process of wrestling the 3rd wide receiver spot from Emmanual Sanders.  Sanders has been sidelined with a foot injury.

Cornerbacks - How will our cornerbacks Keenan Lewis, Crezdon Butler, William Gay, Donovan Warren, Bryant McFadden (questionable), and Cortez Allen (questionable) fair against the highly talented and explosive Atlanta Falcons offense.

Ramon Foster and Chris Scott - Will they allow Tony Hills to steal their spot at RG?  At the start of training camp, it was Foster's job to lose.  Apparently, he is starting to lose it.

Marcus Gilbert - The rookie LT from the University of Florida had a rough start to training camp reportedly showing up out of shape.  He has turned things around recently and is getting his first start due to Jonathan Scott's injury (hyperextended knee).  He will have a tough matchup against Atlanta's 4-time Pro Bowler, John Abraham.
