Official 2012 Pittsburgh Steelers Thread

Postby shafnutz05 on Thu Aug 09, 2012 7:14 pm

With the preseason (and thus season) officially starting, thought we better get this thread going.

Would love to see someone on our defense just smear Vick tonight when he tries to scramble.

I've sorely needed good sports to watch. Even though it's only preseason, I'm really happy to see football is back.

You and I are witnessing a dismal Phillies season => the Eagles' hype-meter bumped up several notches. Nice to see the outpouring of support for Reid, though.

Oh, look! A Howard Eskin sighting. :roll:

I see no reason why Redman couldn't start if need be.

As long as he leaves those butterfingers in Cleveland last December, I'm fine with that.

That was exactly the play Woofley was talking about pregame when he said Adams seems to be flat footed when a player rushes to the outside. He is too used to just pushing guys out of the way in college. He is going to have to learn, and will, to keep with his guy and keep the feet moving.

Yes, it froze for about 30 seconds. OK now.

Yeah, I'm confident in his ability to adapt for sure.

Tomlin in mid-season form burning challenges and timeouts.

LOL, preseason thaw out of the challenge-flag-throwing arm?

The Eagles Television Network stupidly listens to the JV refs and shows PHI with only 2 time outs (times out?).

Offensive line hasn't missed a beat from last year. We are good to go.
