Always good to beat Philly, but turnovers are a red flag

 That’s right, the Steelers took it to the Eagles, trouncing them 27-13 in Pittsburgh.  Sure, it’s pre-season and the Eagles are in the NFC.  Still, as a Pittsburgher, it’s always nice to beat a team from Philadelphia.  

The Steelers had 3 turnovers, 2 by veteran players (Roethlisberger throwing an interception and Parker fumbling at the goal line).  This is a troubling data point from today’s game.

It’s great the team hung together and got the W.  Still, keep an eye on turnovers.  The starters need to take care of the football.  It shouldn’t take all of camp to get the rust out on that.

  1. Yeah, the turnovers were a problem last year as well. I’m really curious to see what kind of season Big Ben will have.

  2. The Steelers goal line offense tonight was definitely suspect. Willie Parker had no reason to still be running standing straight up on the one yard line. I don’t fault Ben for that interception, his arm got hit as he threw the ball, if you watch the replay.
