Big Ben to start in limited action on Friday
Wednesday, August 06, 2008
By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Even though he has been limited in practice the past four days because of a groin injury, Ben Roethlisberger will start and probably play no more than one series in Friday night's preseason opener against the Philadelphia Eagles at Heinz Field, Coach Mike Tomlin said this morning.

Tomlin said all four quarterbacks are scheduled to play against the Eagles, with the order being Roethlisberger, veteran Charlie Batch, rookie Dennis Dixon and free-agent rookie Mike Potts. Tomlin, though, said Roethlisberger will "probably not" play more than a series.

Four players have already been ruled out of the game -- Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu, Pro Bowl nose tackle Casey Hampton, safety Anthony Smith and tight end Cody Boyd. Polamalu and Hampton remain on the physically unable to perform list.

Rookie Rashard Mendenhall, the team's No. 1 draft pick, is among three players who are scheduled to return kickoffs, along with newcomer Mewelde Moore and wide receiver Willie Reid.

Moore, who was signed in free agency from the Vikings, will return punts with former Pro Bowl returner Eddie Drummond, who was signed last week; and former Olympic skier Jeremy Bloom.

OK.  OK.

Odds Wille "no, not that Willie" Reid muffs or fumbles a KO or PR?

Who's willing to give me 10:1 it happens?  5:1?

I heard they were playing Friday, so I set it up to record last night.  Kind of early, 5:30 here and 7:30 eastern.  It is on NFL Network for those not in the Pittsburgh area.
Thanks for the info, BV.  I was just going to ask that.

Are all of their non-nationally televised games going to be broadcast on the 212 in real time?  In past years, I seem to remember the NFL network doing reruns of games, but that usually meant you had to wait a day or two to watch a game to which you already knew the outcome.
I'm in NC, and last year the direct feeds of Steeler Preason on FSN Pitt were blacked out -- I was forced to watch the taped rebroadcasts (which I DVR) on the NFL Channel.

Not sure why sometimes I am allowed to watch FSN Pittsburgh, and sometimes not. For instance, The Mike Tomlin weekly press conference is blacked out live, but I can watch in on Savran (which I also DVR).

Anyone know what the deal is?

It is an NFL deal. If you are not considered to be in the "market", you miss out on preseason games and press conferences. You aren't supposed to be a Steeler fan in NC, you are supposed to like the Panthers...So say the powers that be.

I am supposed to get it on my cable company through FSN Pittsburgh, but since I am in Parkersburg, WV, my guess is it will be blacked out.....grrrrr :bang:
So your cable carrier doesn't have NFLN?  I assume if you get FSNPitt you have cable.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

This sucks! I have to be at the Va. Beach Oceanfront with a bunch of Irish dancers on Friday night. I think I'll wander along Atlantic Avenue & find a bar with the game! And I WILL be sporting some Black & Gold...

Cleveland:  The only NFL city to never play in, or host, a Superbowl.  That bears repeating.
