well at least it's only pre-season. Hopefully the first string offense will get their act together and the first string defense will learn coverage and tackling.

Watching Cleveland play the Bucs tonight, they looked better than they have in years. It won't be a cake walk like years past.

Cleveland though, they are tryhards in the preseason. It always seems the best teams kind of muddle their way through the preseason, while the worst often win most of their preseason games.

I can't wait for the regular season to start.

(the not so good) The poor tackling on D early in the game concerns me even if it is only preseason. Ben looked like he didn't know the offense.The O-line looked out of sync. With all the talent he has around him Ben should have looked better. Cockrell had another bad game. Landry Jones struggled early on. Once again we let 2nd/3rd string QBs pick us apart and backup RBs run all over us.

(the good) Jones settled down and made some nice plays. He was doing a good job stepping up in the pocket to buy time. It was good to see Sutton in there. He looks like he has a nose for the ball and was in on a few tackles. Connor can run on backups. Good practice for the real deal. That TD to Grimble was mighty fine. Good catch,nice throw.

(the ugly) I saw what looked to me like a hit on a defenseless receiver,2 PI (one in the endzone) that were not called. In both PI non calls the Ref had a clear view of the infraction yet didn't throw the flag. I thought the call on Cockrell for PI paled in comparison to the 2 we should have gotten. Ju Ju's twisted knee looked worse than it was I guess but that was kind of scary.

I'm not even sure how to take this game: Did Haley and Butler tell these guys to just go out and get some exercise?? Steelers vs. Colts (preseason game 3) - Page 2 2087824411 It didn't look to me like they had much of a game plan. Hopefully it's all part of not showing our hand. Last night looked a little like a JACK high bluff. Steelers vs. Colts (preseason game 3) - Page 2 312503953

Just watching the recorded game now and I don't understand why none of you are not mentioning the missed block by Villanueva on the sack/fumble on the opening drive?

Why all the other bitching and moaning, but a guy that just got a hefty payday misses a block on the opening drive gets a pass? I read complaining about Gilbert on this board for seasons for his play, but I haven't seen a whiff that bad in a long time. SMH

Dude is like the offensive version of Senquez Golson.

How do you feel since he came back from what looked like it could have been a awkward knee injury and made a few nice catches?

Should we just label him a bust and cut him now??

You're right. He missed that block big time. My bitch would be with DeCastro called for holding about once or twice a game.

Sutton looked really promising, and I believe Watson deserves a chance to prove himself.

Steelers have one issue in the NFL. The Patriots*. If they want to win the Super Bowl, they have to figure out a way to put pressure on Brady for 60 minutes. If not, they can win the division, beat anyone else in their path, but they need to take out the Patriots* to win it all.

So I watched this game again (thanks NFL Network), and although I didn't get to see most of the first quarter, I did watch the other 3.

I really don't believe this game was as bad as I first expected. Yes there is definitely room for improvement, but what I saw made up for the errors (only because it's a pre-season game).

1. The defense was hustling to the ball (yes they had some missed tackles)
2. The secondary needs to do a better job of tackling but unlike in years past at least the guys were in the picture frame when the WR caught the ball.
3. We've got a pretty good WR corp (although they definitely need to learn route running - this was part of the problem on Jones' INT)
4. Getting Bell back will make this offense more potent
6. Jesse James needs to work on blocking and then he won't have to worry about the Steelers bringing in more TEs in the off-season (I think he's definitely improved on catching)

Hell and no! I like JuJu, I loved when they drafted him, especially after I watched some of his college tape. I guess you could say Golson has left a bad taste in my mouth, since he's constantly injured, and we had high hopes for him to help fix our secondary issues since he was drafted. So I was hating the fact that JuJu keeps getting hurt seemingly every time he sees the field whether it's in practice, or when he makes it out for some actual playing time.

Absolutely loved it when he came back! I am hoping he develops into a great receiver for us, and I think we could use a guy with his hands in the redzone. No way I'd label him a bust, not in his first season. He's a rook, and injuries happen.
