It may just be preseason, but it's still the Steelers, and it's still football. I'll watch every second.

Change that to Patriots, and that was my night.

Damn, gotta hit the grocery for some odds and ends to go with the hot spicy stir fried pork loin and noodle tonight....

I was really hoping to commiserate with fellow [Redskin] farkers last night on how awful (and predictable) the Redskins looked....

No doubt. :)

I thought it was interesting that Cousins and the starters actually played 2 rounds in the 1st quarter....

Looks like it'll be on NFLN. I'll try to watch, as long as it doesn't start getting like their "coverage" during TNF was a couple of years back.

If Pittsburgh plays it I will come.

Ah hell, sounds like NFLN is using the Giants broadcasters....
 
2017-08-11 07:13:34 PM  
WATT.
 
2017-08-11 07:14:03 PM  
Watt shows up immediately.
 
2017-08-11 07:19:53 PM  
Good calls from Todd Haley. The second series and they're already on his junk. That's something I DIDN'T miss.
 
2017-08-11 07:20:50 PM  
farking A, no thread yesterday, but NOW there's one?


Bah. I had to work late, gimmie a lil bit to finish dinner....
 
2017-08-11 07:22:45 PM  
Watt AGAIN!

I'm really anticipating his performance when it counts.
 
2017-08-11 07:27:46 PM  
Well. Dobbs has nowhere to go but up from here. The fans are all clamoring for him to displace Landry Farking Jones. If this keeps up he'll be lucky to stay on the roster.

But it's early yet.
 
2017-08-11 07:34:22 PM  
IF this is the protection the blueshirts are getting this year, Eli better fake an injury to keep from getting killed.

when Antwon Blake, ex Tomlin buttboy picks you off, you suck.  apparently there's a reason every other team had a 7th/UDFA grade on him.
 
2017-08-11 07:37:34 PM  
on the bright side, TJ Watt is flashing that he is worth the risk, even if his playing career is probably 6 years at best.
 
2017-08-11 07:37:50 PM  

FriarReb98: the blueshirts


5 yard penalty, still second down, two minutes in the box.
 
2017-08-11 07:38:23 PM  

FriarReb98: Ah hell, sounds like NFLN is using the Giants broadcasters....


another group that can't properly differentiate a reverse and a end around.
 
2017-08-11 07:39:21 PM  
Valentino Blake. Really? It's no Metta World Peace, but come on.
 
2017-08-11 07:43:05 PM  
so juju shuster  starts his nfl career with a concussion in the 1st quarter.  great
 
2017-08-11 07:44:52 PM  
Lou Dobbs would be better at this point. Who else they got?
 
2017-08-11 07:44:56 PM  
Dobbsception #2. Yeesh.
 
2017-08-11 07:45:33 PM

good call

Why is this game in a weird aspect ratio? The bottom ticker is fine, so I know it's not my TV, and it's too wide to be 4:3. Just needless black bars.

Well on mine I'm on the lower res channel and have that, is it on the high res channel too?

because NFL network is stupid/cheap and are running this with their own scrollbar on top of the origination scrollbar / logo/ graphics and thats the only way to block it all out.
 
2017-08-11 07:51:32 PM  
This QB for the Giants is showing promise. Eli would have thrown a few picks by now.
 
2017-08-11 07:53:48 PM  
so the Steelers repeatedly try/cut guys at KR position year after year with no results.  Knile Davis has 1 (maybe 2) KR TD against them and he's wiped out before getting to the 20.  maybe its NOT the KR ... but everyone else aroudn the KR or  the scheme


nah, that could never happen under Can't Be Questioned He Won a SB Tomlin.

That's beyond stupid. There are two bars on opposite sides of the ticker doing nothing! F*ck.

and now they can't even do THAT right .

*Opposite sides of the ticker.

Also, both of these offenses look awful.
 
2017-08-11 07:56:46 PM  
Hamilton not gonna throw away his shot.
 
2017-08-11 07:57:11 PM  
All right Hamilton!

Hopefully you'll have a job come Week 1.
 
2017-08-11 07:57:13 PM  
hell of a catch on a wobbler in the rain
 
2017-08-11 07:58:43 PM  
Todd Haley likes to take shots into the end zone? These guys have called Pittsburgh games for a while now, how could they possibly be so wrong?

HaleyBall upcoming.

Well up until the Hamilton catch the Steelers weren't really blocking long enough to test the secondary. And unless I missed something, that's still the weaker half of the Giants D.
 
2017-08-11 07:59:31 PM  
Nice to look up just in time to see Cobi snag that ball

Apparently it's preseason for announcers, too. SEND IN THE THIRD STRING

Remember that story about Jaws having to fake excitement for a really bad game for the sake of TV? Same idea.

if they don't go 7 deep at WR with the talent pool they have and Ben's last hurrah , Tomlin should be fired week 1.
 
2017-08-11 08:01:06 PM  
Matt Filer...file him under useless.

actually he (or Ben) really does-- when they have a real deep threat.  See Bryant, Martavis (pre suspension), or     Coates , Sammy (pre ruined hand)
