That's the signal that summer is winding down.

Yeah.  That, and the lawn and assbeard have completely browned out.

Over/under on how long till Willis Colony is done for the year?  I'm guessing he rips something while he's on the sideline.

Hmm, looks like somebody didn't get back on that one.  Guess that's the book on the Steelers secondary until it isn't.

surprised no one jumped on this but here I go...

Adams = sucked
1st team D - looked really good
1st team O - nothing stood out as awesome but solid
Rainey - at first was getting blown back with any hit but killing it after avoiding hits

Second and Third team looked really bad, I know it's preseason but damn, they looked really bad.

Agreed.  Particularly the 2nd/3rd team offen-seive line and the defensive backfield.  Not even performing well
at the basics.

Starks should be ready to start the season.

Be interesting to see if Adams gets inserted mid-season if no one gets hurt.  Right now, he looks like he may only dress as a backup.

Out-frickin'-standing.

It's preseason game #1.  Mistakes are irritating, but expected.  If it's still happening in game #3, then I'll be concerned.  All I care about are giving guys reps and avoiding injuries.  Good to hear that Adams' injury doesn't appear serious, but Johnson's sucks.  Hopefully they can adjust accordingly.

Speaking of things that irritate me:

Via Sheil Kapadia at phillymag.com, Rodgers-Cromartie was asked about the hit after Monday morning's practice:

Has he received any notification about a fine from the league?

"No."

Does he expect to receive a fine?

"No."

Does he believe it was a clean hit?

"Yes sir, no question."

Any regrets? Maybe wish he would have tackled Leftwich differently?

"Regrets? We're playing football, man," Rodgers-Cromartie said. "The Bible said don't live a life of regret."


Big Hit by Eagles Cromartie on Steelers Leftwich


WUT?  What year is it again??!!

Somebody please, PLEASE, PLEASE explain to me how that's not an illegal hit that deserves a fine/suspension.

I shudder to think what the masses would be clamoring if Silverback hit a QB like that.

The fact that DRC is smaller than Leftwich, hence the hit appears less violent, should have NO bearing on the decision.  In fact, you can make the argument that it's as bad or worse than either the Massoquoi or McCoy hits.  

The guy left his feet and launched himself like a missile at the QB's head, FFS!!!

I know they're all replacement refs, but c'mon...
