Here we are, just one week away from the start of the real deal in the National Football League. There's still business to tend to tonight however for Mike Tomlin and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The starting quarterback still has not been named for the opener against Atlanta Falcons two Sundays from now, and though Dennis Dixon may have hurt his chances last Sunday evening, he may not be out of the running for the nod just yet. Tomlin and his staff may also not quite have their mind made up about each and every last position along the offensive line. Same might be said for the slew of cornerbacks vying for playing time in Dick LeBeau's defense, as well as various roles on special teams.
So, plenty to keep an eye on and pay attention to this evening. Above all else however, let's hope for a clean, injury-free game for both squads. Join fellow fans here throughout the contest to talk about the game as it unfolds.
