Chattin’ Thread for the Week of August 6

Alrighty, folks, the preseason is upon us. The Steelers face the Eagles Thursday. In the meantime, feel free to discuss Big Ben’s latest malady or the less ridiculous development: Mike Adams has been taking first-team snaps at left tackle. Off you go…

    I’m still having a hard time believing the Steelers will open the season with two rookies starting on the offensive line, not to mention a former right tackle playing a new position for him at left guard.

      I kinda agree..it really isn’t “Steeler-like”..

      I think Starks will start the season at LT but probably not finish in that position for instance.

      Would anyone be all that surprised to see this lineup to START the season (and not necessarily what we’ll see even by mid-season)
      Starks/Colon/Pouncey/Foster/Gilbert?

      I wouldn’t be surprised at all.

    I was surprised that you guys didn’t make a bigger deal on the podcast about the lack of depth at CB. I like the four guys and expect them to develop. But last year, we had the same guys plus Gay and McFadden and still had to sign Anthony Madison off the street for the playoffs.

    Just put together an All-AFC North team for shiggles over at CBSSports.com. Feel free to mock as you see fit.

      I made one too.

      Not a whole lot I’d change really. The Colon selection is shocking, but then I double checked the options. Well, with Grubbs having left what’re you gonna do? I’d take Gresham over Dickson, but otherwise keep your offense. On defense this is the AFCN, they play a 3-4. Drop Geno Atkins, replace with Lawrence Timmons. At CB, promote Haden to #1 and put Ike Taylor at #2.
