Camp Report: August 7th

*Big Ben looked extremely sharp Monday morning.  During 7-on-7 drills, three of his first four throws went for touchdowns.  Cedrick Wilson was the recipient of all three.  I always thought they had good chemistry together, so it's good to see them getting one the same page once again.

*Nate Washington, who once again took the place of Hines Ward (hamstring) with the first-unit, kept it going for Roeth.  He made a leaping catch in the back of the endzone, to make it four touchdowns in Roeth's first five throws.

*Charlie Batch and Omar Jacobs kept the momentum rolling.  Batch threw TD strikes to rookies Santonio Holmes and Willie Reed.  Jacobs hit Walter Young on a deep ball for a score.

Granted, 7-on-7 drills are the closest thing to flag football you'll see, but still, an impressive day for the offense nonetheless.  Without a pass rush, you'd expect Roethlisberger and his receivers to pick the denfense apart.  They did.  Last week they didn't, so you'd have to say that progress is being made.
