Wednesday notes

The Steelers did some Steelers vs. Steelers work today, working on their hurry-up offense with the addition of piped in crowd noise.

The offense easily scored all three times - though the defense was missing a number of veterans.

The other interesting thing was that even though the team practiced indoors and most of the players were in shorts, Ben Roethlisberger wore a glove on his throwing hand – for continuity purposes.

© Aaron Smith again dressed for practice and participated in the team stretch, but did little else.

© Watching Byron Leftwich this week, it's obvious he needs the addition snaps this week is providing him.

Leftwich is throwing a lot of flutter balls right now.

they probably just threw at Gay and scored easily

do you think Ben will eventually pull a Kurt Warner and go with the glove full time?

IMO, i think he wants to, but isn't due to how he would be perceived around the league.

he seems to be more confident when wearing it. and that deep ball to Wallace vs. Cleveland may have been the best ball he's ever thrown.

the best ball hes ever thrown was probbaly the pass to wallace.....in last year's GB game

The best ball was to Holmes in the Super Bowl. Hands down

I remember a great incompletion towards Nate in the second Cleveland game in 2006. Perfect spiral.

He's said previously that he can't wear the glove in warmer games because humidity makes it more slick. But in cold weather, it helps his grip.

Dale...so is Tom Bradley the new Pitt coach or did WTAE botch that story? Any insight?

marc said...

his last two passes to holmes in the superbowl were perfect.

How about in the AFC Championship win in Denver...Ben was rolling left and threw a 30-35 yard dart splitting two defenders to Hines in the back of the endzone.

Don't know where the TAE report came from. It's not true - yet. I expect that will be the outcome of all of this, but it hasn't happened yet.
