    I gotta give credit where credit is due. For years now we have had to suffer through pre-season games where the offense would look like a Chinese fire drill. Games where the backups seemingly had zero clue what they were supposed to be doing.

    Well we are 1 game in and all 3 QBs looked great! The offense moved the ball no matter who was in. I think Fichtner deserves some credit for that. Props to Randy on his first game as OC. Hopefully the offense hits the ground running this year, as opposed to waiting until week 5.

    kudos, as well

    I thought fichtner was going to be a Big Ben sounding board and just echo everything so I was against the hiring. We will see how it goes but i'm impressed so far.

    Im interested to see if Ben gets a series on Thursday. I cant wait to see how the offense is going to be called with Ben in, even if its only for a drive.

    If Ben plays a drive vs. Packers, he needs to make sure DeCastro is awake. Dude was asleep on the first drive vs. Eagles.

    Yeah that was a poor attempt at blocking Fletcher Cox. I know Cox is a beast but Cmon.

    Ben isn't playing on Thursday, he only plays in game 3 of the preseason.

    Are you sure about that, or is that just your opinion? Im seriously asking. Anybody know if he is definitely sitting out Thursday?

    He's been practicing. He doesn't need work in game two of the preseason. The line hasn't been practicing and we have backups,backups playing in front of him. It's not like the season opens next week.:cool:

    Brady is starting thursday, he doesnt need to be on the field yet either, but bill B doesnt care who you are on his team your going to play in preseason, wouldnt hurt for ben to get some game time snaps just to get a feel for live action....

    In defense of Castro, that was Fletcher Cox. He's a pro bowl d-lineman. Wasn't like he gave a sack up to some no name kid from Appalachian state.

    Ben and Landry both will not play versus the Packers. It's the Dobbs and Rudolph show.

    Bill also keeps Brady on the field during garbage time, to continue to run up the score.
    He has been lucky that his ego trips haven't hurt their team.

    The Rudolph era has begun. Ben may never see the field again.


    In other news The Steelers have relocated to Mars.:cool:

    I wish this were the case, but I'm guessing Dobbs gets the first half and Rudolph the second. I would love to see Rudolph running the 1's though.
