The Steelers have their first preseason game under their belts and have some things to work on going forward.
While the team gets back to camp and gets ready to work on the rest of the preseason we’ll be busy looking for mentions of your Black & Gold so we’ve got you covered. Here’s your Steelers Morning Huddle for Saturday, Aug. 13th.
Some things to work on
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin took to the microphones to wrap up the first preseason game for the Steelers which resulted in a 30-17 loss to the Detroit Lions. There were some high points to the game including James Harrison’s strip-sack and Arthur Moats fumble recovery.
There were also some low points and those included two fumbles by Sammie Coates and a special teams that allowed a 96-yard touchdown return.
Steelers President Art Rooney II joined the broadcast booth with Bob Pompeani and Charlie Batch during the Steelers’ 30-17 preseason loss to the Detroit Lions to provide some noteworthy information about the Christmas game against the Ravens.
The Steelers will wear all black uniforms with gold numbers for the Color Rush game. I’m sure if you ask real nicely and if you’re a good fan n’at then Santa will bring you one of your very own.
So a little over a year after watching former Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham suffer what ended up being a career-ending knee injury by attempting to make a tackle during a preseason game our very own Chris Boswell didn’t seem to get the message that tackling isn’t part of his job description, especially in preseason.
I’m going to need him to not. Nothing happened and he wasn’t injured but still, I’m going to need him to not. Tomlin’s response to the question about his preference on kickers attempting tackles in the preseason.
I’m going to need him to not as well. I get the whole “we don’t live in our fears” mantra and all but c’mon. Last year it was comical how many kickers they had to go through. Let’s not. No tackling for kickers. Ever.
