Join us in the Gameday thread to talk about the action as it happens!
The 3rd preseason game of 2012 is here and the Steelers are in Buffalo to play the Bills in an important game for not only the starters but the backups as well. Initial roster cuts are due by Monday August 27, and the Steelers must trim their current roster from 90 players to 75. Even though the reserves won’t play until sometime in the 3rd quarter they will need to take advantage of every snap they get this evening. Their very jobs depend on it.
Mike Tomlin talks about the game and the latest injuries. The starters are expected to play at least the first half, and possibly longer depending on what Coach Mike Tomlin sees out of them.
“I want to see them execute,” said Tomlin of the starting offense, who have only played five series so far in the preseason. “That’s always the case, but particularly in this third game, they are going to work at least a half. I expect to see a quality half of football.”
