Which starter goes down with a season ending injury tonight?

The safe pick would be on offensive lineman so I'll go with Marcus Gilbert. If not an O-lineman, then I'll go with Le'Veon Bell.

Dejan is going to show up and scream at you for being defensive.

Ramon Foster, which will then trigger the Steelers trading something to the Jets for Willie Colon.

The kicker will go down so we may usher in the next Jeff Reed era.

haha. In reality I'll probably flip between the 2. Should be the most interesting pre-season we've had in quite some time (Probably Ben's rookie year)

I've resigned myself to a 6-10 season with 4 losses in the last minute (2 where the defense blows a lead, 1 where BRoeth throws an awful INT on a game winning drive, 1 where Suisham blows a FG). They got two titles out of their core and played for a 3rd so there isn't a whole lot to be upset about there but it's time to reload. Next year should be better but this year will not be fun.

For those of us who don't live in Pittsburgh, who are this year's camp superstars that everyone is raving about and Edmund Nelson will lobby for them to make the HOF tonight?

I'm pretty much in a similar place. We were extremely blessed to win two titles in four years, but just about everyone knew that we were due for a major rebuilding/overhaul. Honestly, the Bengals are probably in the best position to win the North the next couple of years.

I honestly don't understand what the guy is talking about most of the time.

lol, I think you mean the hashtag #preseason

I'll watch the whole first quarter I'm sure, which coincides nicely with the Pirates late start.

I'll watch the 1st quarter and the 4th quarter when the scrubs are in. I like watching QBs who have no idea what they are doing.
