So if the 18 game schedule happens most likely preseason will be cut to two games. So after the second game now are you ready for the regular season? Are the Steelers? We have seen two different performances from many of our potential back-ups, who do you keep.
On the strength of two games I can safely bet that the QB and WR positions are settled. Safety is resolved depending on what other players you take (whether there is room for 3 or 4) and kicker/punter are locked in place.
Does Sonny Harris make the team? How about Redman, Logan, Burnett? Ben has played 1 quarter, is that enough?
I don't like the idea of a shorter preseason because it ends with the starters not getting enough time and the backups not being able to show enough.
If you support a shorter preseason, how do you solve these problems?
I have noticed there aren't any calls for a shorter preseason right now. Those will wait till the first big name gets hurt. Then again if you kill two preseason games for 2 regular season games you will have more injuries. There are more injuries in the regular season than in the preseason.
