Winner of the night : James Conner Conner played like a beast in the first quarter. Completely different running style than LB. No, hesitation at all. Just hit the hole and go. He ran through arm tackles and showed break away speed to go the distance, which is one thing Lev Bell dosent do often. Winners James Washington Steelers know how to pick recievers. This guy is going to be great I can't wait to see what he does with Ben on the field. JW fights for the ball. It's fun to watch. Ola Adeniyi Ola showed a motor on every play. He was disruptive, and again showed natural pass rush ability. At this point I will be shocked if Ola in not on the 53. Loser of the Night : Mike Tomlin This is not a bash Tomlin thread, it's just preseason. At some point someone needs to be accountable for the awful tacking on this football team. When something is wrong for so long and never gets corrected you have to start at the top. It can't all be just players. Its not like the Steelers have no talent. From a practice and scheme standpoint whatever the Steelers are doing is not working. Losers Keith Butler Once again the defense was a Chinese fire drill. Tacking was poor. There seemed to again be miscommunication in the secondary. It's only preseason, but I really hope we see a more polished product when the season opens. Brian Allen Allen gambled and lost on a play that ended up being a touchdown. He followed that up will horrible coverage on a play that ended up being called back. I thought he looked bad all night. Nat Berhe Poor tackling and coverage. He blew the tackle on the play Brian Allen blew the coverage on. I know he is supposed to be a special teams ace. But he needs to show more as a defender to make the squad. Starting Inside Linebackers I thought Vince and Bostic were both below average. I wouldn't say they were horrible. But I have been keying on that position when I watch games. They don't come off blocks well. Those who though Bostic was a great tackler will be disappointed. Mason Rudolph Mason had the worst start to a game you could have. Then he recovered and played pretty well for a couple of series. Then he seemed to get frustrated and the game got away from him. Not a good outing for the kid. He will improve. Honorable Mentions I thought Mathew Thomas again looked pretty good. He just didn't do anything to make the winner list. Jesse James had a nice catch and run on the early TD drive. Fitz ran hard but he's still just Fitz. Pick 6 keeps Dobbs from being a winner. Damoun Paterson had another decent game. However he blew a couple routes that I noticed that could have been easily completed.
