Preseason is over

The presason is now over and it's time to make those final roster cuts and for the games to start counting for something. Only seven days...

Speaking of cuts, we think we know someone who won't be getting cut and that is one Stefan Logan. Ron Cook seems to agree with us. We unfortunately did not get to watch the game last night because we're outside of the Pittsburgh market, which is ridiculous considering we live in PA but that's a whole other issue. Our reason for wanting to watch was Logan himself and he definitely didn't disappoint. We caught his 70-yard punt return for a touchdown on the Final Score (does anyone like that show? So annoying!) after watching the NFL Films' story of the 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers special "Brothers and Champions" on FSN which will be available on DVD at Pittsburgh McDonald's starting September 7th for $7.99 with the purchase of an extra value meal. A portion of the proceeds go to the Ronald McDonald House.

Speaking of Steelers' specials, NFL Network will debut the 2008 Pittsburgh Steelers "America's Game" on Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. If you're not familiar with the series, although you should be, it's the NFL's award winning series chronicling each Super Bowl winning team. Each hour-long episode takes you through the year and the story is told by coaches and players. The 2008 Steelers will be told through the eyes of Mike Tomlin, Ben Roethlisberger and Troy Polamalu. If you haven't seen the advertisements for this then you haven't seen Mike Tomlin's comical narration of how "kind of dirty" the Lombardi trophy is. Be sure to tune in to that, it will be worth your time.

But back to what we were talking about, Stefan Logan. How nice will it be to have some excitement again on kickoffs and punt returns? Someone who is a threat to take one to the house on any occasion. We don't know about you, but we also like the fact that the guy is only around 5' 6". How many times must he have been looked over based on height alone? He seems to have made the right impression on Mike Tomlin and should definitely have earned his roster spot. Mike Tomlin said that all of his cuts will be done today (Friday) even though they do not have to be done until Saturday.

Oh yeah, if you didn't know, the Steelers beat the Carolina Panthers 21-10. Ryan Mundy (one of our favorites) even had an interception return for a touchdown. Issac Redman scored yet another touchdown and is making it awfully hard for Mike Tomlin to turn him away.

See you later for the final cuts.
