    Best play of the night came from the mighty Kern sadly. Where he kicks this ball from and where it ends up is crazy.

    How about that Titans pass rush?! Shocking that we didn’t have a single sack with no Casey, Jones, Landry or Wake against their starting O line haha.

    This game meant absolutely nothing and kudos to Vrable for pulling Mariota on a rainy day after the WRs dropped 2 of his 3 passes. Nothing to gain.

    I wonder if the coaches are getting rid of the dress rehearsal and not playing starters to force the hand of owners wanting to keep 4 full price preseason games. I mean this game was barely AAF quality.

    Yeah, really Mariota was fine. The rest of the team was bad.

    More and more teams are getting away from the "dress rehearsal" in the 3rd game... But they have to have games to evaluate players on the bubble and get players that need the reps live action.

    Which is why you make it two preseason games instead of four. I like the idea of adding another few playoff teams/games. That would be waaaaaay better.

    The only real concern I have is how overmatched the starting OL looked.

    Garrett must have loved what he saw last night.

    WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

    ABC VORTEX DETECTED!!!

    DO NOT ENGAGE that guy. When he loves/hates an individual player his logic circuits get fried. Remember- he's the guy that spewed for YEARS how everybody else was wrong about Kevin Dodd. Kept on and on and on. Crazy illogical. He's doing the same thing now about Mariota but in the other direction. Just no middle ground with that guy.

    I get everybody dismissing its preseason. And yes- the Steelers did appear to have a different approach to last nights game. They were blitzing the ENTIRE game. They were rotating their DL starters deep into the 3rd quarter.

    But there is NO DENYING our interior OL had their azz handed to them the ENTIRE game. Saffold and Pamphile were getting spun around so bad they should have been wearing a poodle skirt. And that's a couple of games where this guy has looked like chit against the other teams "1s". Friggin turnstiles.

    I've lowered my expectations for the season until I see that interior OL improve. I hope Vrabel loops the plays where they looked like chit and just starts the team meeting them those plays looping. For about 10 minutes.

    Sounds like Vrabel knows what's going on:
