    The QB situation is of course the most interesting to see in camp but for pure entertainment I want to see Calvin Austin turn on the jets with his world class speed.

    Even if Ogunjobi starts out on the PUP, he could still be ready to start the season.

    That is another Battle that I didn't see coming before the Draft: Calvin Austin vs Gunner for the return specialist.

    You give some of the return duties to Austin, does Gunner make the team as a WR he signed a 2 year $4.2 million contract?


    How many WRs make the team? (1-4 are set) This is my 5-8 at camp.
    5) Boykin (without Lamar)
    6) Miller (with Mitch)
    7) Gunner (Return Special)
    8) White

    People underestimate or don’t even think about the return guys

    One super bowl Larry Anderson (sp) had 161 return yards in 4 kickoffs

    Tell me that wasn’t a factor in the game

    Agreed....problem is the refs always seem 2 interfere in our return game.....So dang much I'm like.....just let it go on kickoffs, and just fair catch it on punts.

    Punts outside the 10 catch and run
    Punts inside the 10 let bounce

    And whatever happened to kicking to the coffin corner

    I don’t think the rules changed because I saw a few but not many

    i am wanting to see if any of these other DB's make some noise. steele, platel, stephens, and if they can unseat pierre, layne, maulet.

    does harvin improve?

    calvin austin. i have a good feeling about this kid.

    claypool. says he has worked ten times harder this year than the first two. why now? why not then? i hope so. got some competition now.

    can we see some bombs away down field plays?

    see if we have gotten rid of the dink and dunk O.

    how these new coaches interact with these players. much has changed. is it for the better? how soon will it come together? will it? :cool:

    Today begins another chapter. Biggest things to look for

    Obviously QB battle although Mitch should be in position based on coaches comments to start with the job. Now if he looks horrible in Pre Season games???

    OLine play in general. We have a new C and new G let’s hope this unit can even be marginally better than the embarrassment they were last season.

    D Line besides Hayward we have a lot of ???? Alulu will help if he’s not injured but the rest of them will have to prove themselves.

    OLB depth will someone step up? We have nothing behind TJ and Highsmith

    The two busts in Edmunds and Bush can either live up to the draft pick. I hold out little hope for Edmunds but I’m hoping Bush can get his **** together.

    I think Trubisky will shock a few teams early on like Maddox did in '02... but then once there's some tape on him as a Steelers QB, he will have to adjust.

    Besides the QB battle....
    At RB I want to see who can become the #2 man.
    At WR I am excited to what Pickens can do, I think deep down Pickens will become the steal of the draft for the Steelers. I just hope he stays level headed and not a head case in the long term.
    TE, Muth and Gentry is pretty set, does Heyward do enough as a 3rd TE or H back, will be interesting to watch.

    O-Line, can Dan Moore Jr. build off a somewhat solid Rookie year, the Dotson vs Green battle at guard, or can Green go back to center and wrestle it away from new FA signing Cole. Will Chuks be better with a new deal he got?

    D-Line, I want to see Larry O and how his health is. Watching new Rookie Leal, and see if Loudermilk has room to get better and grow into a starter material. Hopefully Adams blossoms at DT.

    Linebacker- All eyes on Bush, will we see pre-injury Bush, or the post injury Bush? Also can Highsmith, take it up a level production wise. how will Jack fit in with Bush?

    Corner- I want to see if James Pierre comes around, I was high on him last year, but he really let us down last season and didn't progress at all.

    Safety-Want to see if Edmunds can get more Solid on his 1 year deal

    Special teams- Would like to see what Gunner O brings to kick return duties, and most importantly can Pressley Harvin III return to be a good punter and recover from his bad rookie year?

    Coaching wise- Interested to see what the Defense is like minus Butler, Matt Canada's offense needs to prove itself. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt with a not mobile Big Ben, but you got mobility with Mitch or Kenny, prove me this bunch of motion offense works and get us to the 30 points and over in a game more than once a season.

    Bottom line I hope we avoid that major year ending injury that can happen in camp or in a pre-season game especially to a major player.
