6 Things to Watch for in Steelers' Preseason Finale
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin will have some decisions to make after the preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers.

If you're a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, you've had Sept. 9 circled on your calendar for months.

Thursday's preseason finale? Why spend one of the precious few remaining summer nights watching that?

Starters usually play very little, if at all, in the last preseason game. If you blink, you might miss seeing the likes of Antonio Brown and LaMarr Woodley. Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu? You might not see them at all in the Steelers' fourth and final preseason game against the Carolina Panthers at Heinz Field.

What you will see, however, determines who's cleaning out their lockers Friday and who's trying to hush their excitement out of respect for the guys who didn't make the team.

Less than 24 hours after the game ends, the Steelers will be required to cut their roster from 75 to 53.

You could get a last look at a Steelers veteran playing his final game or you could get a sneak preview of a star in the making.

The Steelers' preseason finale is worth a look, even if you're not hardcore enough to have Terrible Towel wallpaper.
