We are now 3-5 when I go to games.

Dude...

That record is even worse when you consider the team's overall record during the last decade or so.  I mean, a 38% win percentage is bad, real bad when the team is around 75%.  Or, at least I think they're somewhere in that neighborhood.

In the future, if you somehow get your hands on any tix, please pass them on to me as they're undefeated in the two games I've attended.

Ya a friend of mine said as much as they win it should be just the reverse.  If they win I would be glad to pass them your way.

too much reliance on Ben to do everything...the D has been rather pedestrian both games plus I no longer trust Jeff ever either...as usual, they let bad teams hang around and then bad things can happen.

If Ben does not pull drives and miracles out of his ass (and even when he does like today), it's jsut not good enough....is he supposed to kick the damn field goal too??

I almost went to this game too, thank god i didn't...WEAK.

Yeah, after rejecting the Steelers latest contract offer he may want to rethink his decision after his performance this past Sunday and during the preseason in general.

I'm an optimist.  Maybe that whole (hopefully one time) kicking debacle ends up in the Steelers getting Reed at a good price allowing other quality player signings. yeh  Unless the salary cap goes away.  Then it's more of a moot point.

Uncapped year next year, strike the year after.  The players will want theirs, after years of Upshaw getting bent over by the owners.

I think the Steelers are probably in trouble if the NFL goes uncapped. They're a great front office, and a great organization, but they can't compete with the Dan Snyders and Jerry Joness of the world. Imagine a team with no stars. We'll still draft well, but the big market teams will be taking all of our players as soon as their contracts are up. Imagine MLB for the NFL because that's what's coming if the salary cap goes away.

I don't know if I'm looking for us to challenge in 2010...or 2011, whichever year is the uncapped year.  But if we're smart, we'll wait it out and let the process take its course.  The owners are never going to go back to the old days, and Snyder and Jones will end up stuck with contracts they can't afford to keep.  I think the teams that blow a bunch of money in that season are going to end up with little to show for it in the long-run.

I really haven't totally thought through the effect lifting the salary cap would have on the Steelers.  I always thought it would hurt us, but Preacherman has a good point.  I think in the short-run it will hurt but in the long-run it has potential to help.  Personally I'm all for the salary cap.  Otherwise it can turn into the "The Yanks, the Sox and everyone else" year in and year out.   Al baseball has become so predictable result-wise for the last several years.  It's just a yawner any more.  And even if the Steelers end up at the top, it loses its lustre, like enclosing 500 deer in a 200 acre area and then "going hunting."

The salary cap is just a plan to redistribute wealth.  It's socialism, pure and evil.
