That’s a wrap

The Steelers put a bow on a preseason that seemed endless at times on Thursday night with a 23-6 loss to the Carolina Panthers. The Steelers had a scoring opportunity late in the game with a drive by Landry Jones but, symbolic of how this preseason went for the Steelers, Jones and two other linemen were hurt in a matter of minutes and the Steelers kneeled it out to burn the clock.

The Steelers will have to cut the roster down to 53 players by Saturday afternoon at 4:00 pm EST.

Brady beats Goodell

Tom Brady and the NFLPA won their case in Federal court over Roger Goodell and the NFL’s four-game suspension for his deflated balls. Brady’s suspension was vacated by Judge Richard M. Berman in a decision handed down on Thursday afternoon.

The decision is a huge with for the NFLPA, as it shows a history with the Bounty Gate, Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson cases that Roger Goodell’s seemingly untouchable and unilateral power over discipline in the league can be overturned in court time and time again.

The fact that it came this far was kind of ridiculous and even silly at times and at this point it is so far beyond the topic of deflation of footballs it’s not even funny, except that balls are almost never not funny. What this judge ruled wasn’t necessarily that Brady didn’t do anything wrong but that Goodell’s punishment and appeal process was flawed and unfair from the start.

Steelers react to Brady ruling

Everyone in the NFL was talking about the judge Berman decision yesterday, especially the team that will face them in less than a week on opening night of the NFL season in Foxboro.
