Steelers play I see....Mitch Trubisky is the starter. I just hope the starters don't get seriously hurt.

Commanders playing the Panthers in a week 1 preseason game?

That's not sports, that's a circle of hell.

I get Seattle at Pittsburgh, so what are you complaining about?

I will never actually wish injury, but if I'm being honest, the team would be better if several "starters" miss time, get upstaged, and lose their spot on the depth chart.

Bush, and edmunds in particular.

I just really want to see the Stellers offense with Pickens wide,, Claypool in the Flex BigSlot, and Austin running wild underneath and across the flats.

In theory that personnel grouping suits Canada proclaimed offense to a T

I live near the stadium and I'm debating buying a cheap ticket off a secondary-market app to watch the Broncos tonight.

Pros: I'm geeked for football and summer in Denver is really nice with low humidity.
Cons: No starters. I'd be watching guys that will probably get cut on Tuesday. You know...preseason.

I can't wait to see how long Rhule spends trying to convince everyone that Darnold is still competition for Baker.

Ugh. Right. Good call. I suppose I could load up before I hoof it to the game. Or maybe an edible.

As long as Charlotte sports media is willing to go along with the charade, I'd imagine.... Of course, that also is predicated off of Baker not half-assing things which, given what just happened to him, I doubt would happen. But one never knows....

Of course the Bears look like all-pros against the second and third stringers.

I wonder how long it will take until the first caller on sports radio on Monday says the Bears should start Trevor Siemian instead of Fields.

He could be the key to a resurgent season.

The missing link, so to speak.

I'm sure the first caller is already waiting on hold right now even though it's been the second string defense handing them fantastic field position.

/looks like there could be good depth on defense with this team, but then again preseason second-stringers

Every single punter in the NFL has combined for 1 80+ yard punt since 2014, Matt Araiza does it on his very first (sort of) NFL punt.

Punt God is ours and you can't have him.

Trubisky took them right down the field. I know, preseason, but the arm was lively, he was mobile, and that rollout TD was something Ben wasn't able to do for the last 3-4 years of his career.

It looks promising.

It warmed my heart to hear the crowd at Heinz Field Acrisure Stadium boo Mason Rudolph before he even took a snap.

Then he threw that absolute bomb down field.  That shocked us.  My twelve-year-old daughter said, "Maybe Ben wasthe problem!"

Why would anyone boo Mason Rudolph? He earned my respect when he stepped up and completed the pass knowing he was going to get crushed on that play when I thought Earl Thomas had genuinely killed him.

He's a good player. He's done good things for the team. He doesn't deserve boos.

Well, to be fair, the fans in attendance want to see Pickett.  I know we'll see him in the second half.  But considering last season he led the Steelers to a tie against the Lions, you can kinda see why they're skeptical.  Count me in as well.

But he's looked the best I've ever seen him.

He did. Took them right down the field on the first drive, made a few plays on the second that stalled, and took a seat.
