Quick Hit Thoughts From the HOF Game

The Hall of Fame game is in the books and football season has officially started. The Pittsburgh Steelers rolled the New Orleans Saints. The first preseason game means next to nothing but it was nice to see the players hitting hard and executing well so early in the season.

Here are some quick thoughts from the game.

Hopefully Cedric is happy now. He got most of the looks when he was in the game and did well with them. He's needs to stop complaining and recognize that this is a team where you sacrifice stats for wins. He is becoming a short Plaxico Burress in his attitude, it will be interesting to see how long Tomlin and Hines Ward are going to put up with that.

Woodley looked solid in his time in the game, breaking up a pass by diving in front of the receiver.

The overall defense looked strong and looked like a Dick LeBeau defense.

Nate Washington needs to learn how to catch if he is ever going to make an impact on this team.

Great to see all the coverage problems have been fixed. The refs saved Reid on that fumble. The Steelers have to do better in that respect.

Carey Davis looked very solid. It will be interesting to see if he can keep the pace up. He was more impressive than Najeh or Barlow.

St. Pierre's fade to Santonio was beautiful. As was Ben's deep toss to Cedric.

Hey Robert Meachem, welcome to the NFL, a guy named Gay laid your ass out.
