Morning Links (and Daily Thread)…

A quick daily look at what’s happening around Steelers Nation. And consider this your open thread for discussing the days events and, well, anything else that comes to mind about the Black and Gold.

– Around the rest of the AFC North in preseason football: Cleveland beat Green Bay on Saturday night, with Seneca Wallace providing the best performance under center. Colt McCoy was 5-for-10 with two picks. In Cincinnati on Sunday, Carson Palmer was 12-for-15 for 105 yards, while rookie wide receiver Jordan Shipley looked very impressive.

Sorry to do this to you, but here are all of Flozell Adams’ snaps from Saturday night. It’s not pretty. [Post Game Heroes]

For the fantasy football players out there: Mike Wallace is apparently a must-draft player in 2010. Also a must-draft player? Santonio Holmes (Note: I still think the receivers will be a strength of this team, even without Holmes). [ESPN]

– I missed this during the game on Saturday, but apparently the referee was not thrilled about having to review a play in the rain. [WPXI]

– And for your random YouTube of the day: The Jack Lambert-Cliff Harris incident from Super Bowl X. A classic.

    I really think the Steelers are going to have to keep all 6 WR and cut Logan. There just isn’t room for Logan, who while good, is hardly a gamebreaker.

    Any notes on Pouncey? Is he ready to be the starting center yet?

    re: Pouncy — Wex thinks so. He wrote about it on SCI today, and tweeted something similar later. I’m fine with that. We’re always whinging about first-rounders not seeing the field. It looks like we’ll get our wish.

    And I’m with you on keeping six wideouts and letting Logan go.

    I’m not sure what the Steelers are going to do about Dixon. He looked pretty good and it’s always fun to have a running QB in there.

    I’m a Bruce Arians defender and I think the offense has done well with him calling the shots, stupid 3rd down calls against Jacksonville, Cleveland, etc. notwithstanding (what the eph does that really mean anyways?), I don’t think he’s been creative enough with Dixon. Dixon should at least see the field more often. With him in the game, there is always a threat for something crazy to happen. A creative OC would find ways to get him involved with the offense much more than Arians has.

    I’ve pretty much been in the “start Byron” camp because he played so well with the Steelers in 2008. However the performance of Dixon and the Steelers OL has made me rethink this a little bit. I still think that Leftwich should start, but maybe Dixon should be used more often than a normal backup QB would.

    I agree with the idea of starting Dixon. I didn’t think Byron showed much of anything, and he is looking old to me. Free Dixon! If nothing else maybe Florio’s head will pop off.
