While we all hate the thought of it, Hines Ward cant play forever.
Which means the Steelers need to find someone capable of starting on this team. Not so much to replace Ward, because that will never happen.
Enter Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown.
Both are rookie speedsters that have been impressing in camp, and in the first preseason game.
Emmanuel Sanders only had one reception, but it was a nice 3rd down catch over the middle. He also commanded most of the double teams for the night.
Antonio Brown had the big night. Going one on one with Lions 3rd string CBs Eric King and Paul Pratt. Brown caught 3 passes for 84 yards. One of those receptions being a 68 yard touchdown where once he turned the corner he burned the defense. Another being a nice grab where he picked the ball right of the grass.
So in the game against the Giants, I would love to see these two young men get some more balls thrown their way.
