FIRST HALF SUMMARY


The Steelers came out on offense with a full dose of Willie Parker, with him touching the ball on five of the first seven offensive plays. Parker opened the game with a nine-yard reception from Ben Roethlisberger, and after a two-yard run came back with an 11-yard reception. He added carries of four and seven yards, keeping the Steelers offense moving into Eagles territory.


But as easily as the offense moved forward, they quickly took steps backwards. Roethlisberger was called for a 15-yard intentional grounding, sacked for an eight-yard loss and then hit with a five-yard delay of game penalty. On third-and-38, Roethlisberger was looking to make-up some major yardage, but Brian Dawkins intercepted his pass and returned it five yards to the Eagles 40-yard line.


The defense applied early pressure when Clark Haggans sacked Donovan McNabb for a one-yard loss on the second play of their drive. But, McNabb came firing back, completing a 13-yard pass to Reggie Brown for a first down. The defense backed McNabb and company into another tough third down situation, with McNabb unable to connect with L.J. Smith. On the play, though Troy Polamalu was called for pass interference, giving them another set of downs to get on the board. They made it count when David Akers hit on a 40-yard field goal, giving the Eagles a 3-0 lead.


Duce Staley got the nod at running back on the Steelers second drive, and the Eagles crowd welcomed their former back with cheers of Duuuuuce when he first carried the ball for a two-yard gain. Roethlisberger then hit Cedrick Wilson for 10-yards, before going back to Staley for a two-yard run and four-yard reception. Roethlisberger hit rookie wide receiver Willie Reid for a seven-yard gain, and Staley went up the middle for six yards. On third down, Roethlisberger lined up in the shotgun, but his short dump pass to Santonio Holmes resulted in a one-yard loss, forcing the Steelers to punt.


The Eagles offense got the ball rolling, with Correll Buckhalter having carries of nine and four yards and McNabb connecting with Smith for nine yards. Buckhalter got the call again for a six-yard gain, but was then stopped for no gain by James Farrior. McNabb went deep to Greg Lewis for a 30-yard gain, but Lewis was hit for unsportsmanlike conduct for taunting, costing the Eagles 15 yards. McNabb came right back, finding Buckhalter for 11 yards.


Larry Foote put the defense in control, sacking McNabb for a nine-yard loss and then two plays later Brett Keisel sacked him for a four-yard loss. The Eagles had to settle for a 49-yard Akers field goal, increasing their lead to 6-0.


Both teams made changes on offense in their next series, with Charlie Batch coming in at quarterback for the Steelers and Koy Detmer for the Eagles. Both had a quick three-and-out on their first appearance of the night.


Jeff Garcia was called upon to come in at quarterback to run the two-minute offense for the Eagles, but wasn't able to get things moving in his first try.


Batch got his shot with the two-minute offense and fared much better. He took over with 1:28 on the clock and completed four of four passes, with Wilson being his primary target with a 16-yard reception and then coming right back for a 23-yard touchdown to give the Steelers a 7-6 lead.


Garcia got another shot and this time he moved them into field goal position, with Akers connecting from 52 yards to give the Eagles a 9-7 lead at the half.

The Steelers dropped their third preseason game, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles 16-7 at Lincoln Financial Field.



Ben Roethlisberger started at quarterback and played in just two offensive series, completing nine of 14 passes for 52 yards. Charlie Batch completed 10 of 15 passes for 72 yards and a touchdown.



The running game couldn't get anything going, with Willie Parker having three carries for 13 yards, Duce Staley carrying the ball 11 times for 21 yards and Verron Haynes with five carries for 15 yards.



The Steelers came out on offense with a full dose of Parker, with him touching the ball on five of the first seven offensive plays. Parker opened the game with a nine-yard reception from Ben Roethlisberger, and after a two-yard run came back with an 11-yard reception. He added carries of four and seven yards, keeping the Steelers offense moving into Eagles territory.



But as easily as the offense moved forward, they quickly took steps backwards. Roethlisberger was called for a 15-yard intentional grounding, sacked for an eight-yard loss and then hit with a five-yard delay of game penalty.

Garcia got another shot and this time he moved them into field goal position, with Akers connecting from 52 yards to give the Eagles a 9-7 lead at the half.



Both quarterbacks remained in the game to start the second half, but neither could get things going on their first series. The Steelers offense turned the ball over on downs when Staley was stopped for a two-yard loss on fourth-and-one.



The Eagles took over on their own 39-yard line and it didn't take long for Garcia to strike. On the first play of the drive he let loose and fired a 61-yard touchdown strike to Lewis, extending the Eagles lead to 16-7.



Haynes tried to get the ground game going with short carries and then Batch found Walter Young for a 12-yard gain. It was back to Haynes, before Batch hit Reid for a seven-yard gain. The offense stalled, though, and Jeff Reed's 50-yard field goal attempt went wide left.



The Eagles would have the same fate. Detmer came back into the game, but could not pull off the quick strike that Garcia did on the previous possession. E.J. Cochrane's was called up for a 48-yard field goal attempt, but his was wide left as well.



Rookie Omar Jacobs came in with just over a minute to play in the third quarter and had a rough going. He completed his only pass attempt, a seven-yard pass to Jon Dekker, but on the next play he scrambled out of the pocket and fumbled, with the Eagles recovering at the Steelers 36-yard line.



The Eagles were not able to capitalize on the turnover, as they couldn't move the ball. When the Steelers came back on offense, though, it was Shane Boyd at quarterback for the black and gold. Boyd scrambled some in the backfield, but came up with a big completion to Lee Mays for 27 yards to the Eagles 31-yard line. Reed was called upon again to put points on the board, but his 47-yard field goal attempt was wide left.



After stopping the Eagles for a fast three-and-out, Boyd went back to work. He steadily moved the ball down the field out of the shotgun, with short passes and a 17-yard completion to rookie tight end Charles Davis. He found Reid for an 18-yard gain to the Eagles 24-yard line and then hit Cedric Humes for a five-yard gain. Boyd scrambled around right end for 10 yards to the Eagles nine-yard line, giving the Steelers a solid chance at the end zone. He connected with Davis again for a four-yard gain to the five-yard line. But, on second-and-five, Boyd was sacked for a nine-yard loss, fumbled and the Eagles recovered.


The Steelers did get one final chance, but Boyd's was intercepted by J.R. Reed to close out the game.

Okobi back in the mix
Tuesday, August 29, 2006


By Teresa Varley
Steelers.com




There was a welcome sight at Steelers practice on Monday as center Chukky Okobi returned to the field full-strength for the first-time since undergoing neck surgery during training camp.




"I didn't know how long I'd be out," said Okobi, "but I knew at some point I'd be back playing."




Okobi is actually hoping to play against the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night in the team's final preseason game, but knows that the decision is one that is going to be made by head coach Bill Cowher, not by him.




"Hopefully he'll get a chance to play this week," said Cowher. "He's a little rusty, but the fact that he's been able to go in there, go live and hit some people, hopefully he'll be able to do that again Thursday. We'll work closely with the doctors to make sure we're not taking any unnecessary risks. I'm encouraged just talking with him about how he feels, particularly after going in the 9-on-7 today."





Okobi doesn't expect his teammates on the defensive line to go easy on him over the next few days because of the injury.



"They might be (going easy), but they'll see very quickly that's a mistake," said Okobi. "Chris (Hoke) and Casey (Hampton) and I came in together. They know what I'm going to do and I know exactly what they're going to do and we should just do what we've been doing since we got here."




* * *




The Steelers released eight players on Monday, getting the roster down to 75 players. It will be the next cut, when the team has to get to 53 players, that will be the tough one.




"Going to 75 wasn't a tough cut," said Cowher. "The next one will be. There will be a lot of tough decisions to make."

When the Steelers wrap up their exhibition schedule Thursday night against Carolina, Staley might be playing to remain with the team.

Steelers coach Bill Cowher isn't saying if Staley, a former starter who has looked slow during training camp and in games, is playing for a job. Perhaps the most telling indicator was he wouldn't say Monday that Staley isn't.

"I'm not ready to sit here and say that he isn't or he is," Cowher said. "The bottom line is that we have some tough decisions coming Thursday. I like the experience that he brings and what he's done. He's gotten better each week."

Even if that hasn't shown up in the game statistics. Staley has only 46 yards on 23 carries in three exhibition games, and was limited to 21 yards on 11 carries in a 16-7 loss Friday to Philadelphia. In 2004, Staley was averaging 101 yards through seven games before injuring a hamstring, and he has never regained his starting job.

Staley looked somewhat out of shape when camp opened, and Cowher said last week Staley would not be the goal-line and short-yardage back that Jerome Bettis was last season as Willie Parker's backup.

"Duce is working himself back into running shape," Cowher said last week.

With Parker likely to go only a series Thursday before being pulled -- and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger expected to go no longer -- Staley could get a lot of carries as the Steelers prepare to cut their roster over the weekend.

They cut eight players Monday, but none made any impact during training camp.

"I thought he did fine," Cowher said of Staley's performance against the Eagles. "I think it's hard at this time, considering that we're not game-planning, it's hard to pinpoint any one person. I'd like to see us be more consistent running the ball."

One problem, of course, is that Parker has carried only seven times in three games as the Steelers try to protect one of their most valuable players from injury. It's the same reason Roethlisberger has thrown only 22 passes while playing four series.

The starters rarely go more than a quarter, if that, in the final preseason game, and Cowher almost certainly won't change his philosophy. One reason is the Steelers won't have the usual 10 days off before their opener, but only a week: Pittsburgh hosts the NFL's season-opening game Sept. 7 against Miami.

What Cowher wants to eliminate, no matter who plays Thursday night at Heinz Field, are mistakes. The Steelers have seven fumbles, losing three, and four interceptions in three games.

"The two elements are turnovers and big plays -- two things that have been showing up in these games," Cowher said. "We may be winning 80 percent of the snaps, but then we turn it over and then you have nothing to show for the effort. Or you lose a third down and then you have nothing to show there. There are some things we have to do better and more consistently, but I'm encouraged by how we've played in the first halves of these games."

Not that Cowher is about to get worried if the Steelers lose all of their preseason games, something they've never done since he became their coach in 1992.

The Steelers have gone winless in exhibition play only twice in the last 41 years, in 1987 and 1965.

Of their four previous Super Bowl champion teams, only one had a losing preseason. The 1975 Steelers went 3-4, then went on to win a second Super Bowl in as many seasons

Steelers Sign Tight End; Release Rookie

PITTSBURGH The Steelers have signed three-year veteran tight end Tim Euhus to a contract and have released rookie free agent tight end Isaac Smolko, the team announced today.

Euhus (6-5, 249) was acquired by the New Orleans Saints on June 6, 2006, in a trade with the Buffalo Bills. He was released by the Saints on August 28, 2006. Euhus was originally drafted in the fourth round (109th overall) of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Bills out of Oregon State.

In 2005, Euhus appeared in 11 games for the Bills, making three starts. He finished with three receptions for 17 yards (5.7 avg.). He missed the first five games of the season with a shoulder injury. During his rookie year in 2004, Euhus played in 12 games (five starts) before being placed on the Reserve/Injured List on Dec. 14, 2004, with a season-ending knee injury. For his career, he has 14 catches for 115 yards (8.2 avg.) with two touchdowns.

Smolko (6-5, 257) was signed by the Steelers on April 30, 2006, as a free agent tight end. He appeared in all three preseason games for Pittsburgh and caught one pass, a one-yard touchdown against the Arizona Cardinals in the preseason opener.

Steelers Sign Parker to New Contract

PITTSBURGH The Steelers announced today that running back Willie Parker has signed a new four-year deal to remain with the team through 2009. Financial terms of the contract were not released.

Parker, a third-year pro from North Carolina, became a starter for the first time in 2005 and rushed for 1,202 yards, the sixth-highest single-season total in team history. He averaged 4.7 yards on 255 carries and scored four touchdowns in the regular season, and also caught 18 passes for 218 yards (12.1 avg.) and one score.

In his first career start, Parker set a team Kickoff Weekend record with 161 rushing yards and a touchdown on 22 carries (7.3 avg.) against the Tennessee Titans. However, his signature play of the 2005 season came in Super Bowl XL when he set a Super Bowl record with a 75-yard touchdown run in the third quarter against the Seattle Seahawks.

Parker originally signed with the Steelers as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2004. He has rushed for 1,388 yards and four touchdowns on 287 carries during his NFL career. He set a personal best with a career-long 80-yard touchdown run at Cleveland on Dec. 24. Parker has rushed for at least 100 yards in a game six times during his career.

With some great new additions through free agency and the draft, some non injured regulars with potential superstar capabilities returning, and Crennel still tryin' to do his thing that can be done, how do you think the Browns will shape up this season? In the Division? Overall?

I think they'll go 8-8. But still be 3rd in the division, unless Polamalu trips on a thumbtack and it lodges in his eye, then we'd be 2nd.

i knew u had to be a browns fan!!!!!! hahaha

would have posted this in ur thread but i'm not even goin show u that much respect

Good for you keep at it. Never heard of you on this board until now, where were you at the beginning of last season? Oh Yeah, NOT making this thread, but hey, since the Steeler's won the Superbowl LAST year, it's safe to now make this thread THIS year... Yah Dig?

And it's possible for a bus to crash into a plane and a plane to crash into a bus, think about it and get creative, holler.
