  1. “I impacted the game and as an official you never want to do that," Bill Leavy said in reference to Super Bowl XL. "It left me with a lot of sleepless nights and I think about it constantly. I’ll go to my grave wishing that I’d been better.” says: Aug 21, 2014 6:47 PM

    I hope this will be a good pre-season game. Good luck to both teams.

    Should have kept Brice brown and traded Polk

    This is Polk’s third year.

    Shaq Richardson’s a cb, but regardless it’s tough for rookies to make the club from the tub. Him, Poole and Zumwalt really needed to play tonight. The expanded practice squad is their best hope right now.

    Get used to it, Steelers fans. The reason Lance Moore wasn’t more productive with the Saints is because he always seemed to have some kind of ailment. Wrist, shoulder, hamstring, etc. If he takes a hard shot, he usually comes out of the game.

    This Washington Husky fan loves Chris Polk and hopes the Eagles cut him… so the Colts can sign him. That guy was so reliable and always there for the Huskies.

    That’s exactly why we got rid of Lance Moore. He just can’t stay on the field for some strange reason. Good luck with that one Steelers fans. And the Steelers looked absolutely horrible in their week 3 preseason dress-rehearsal! The Eagles made the Steelers look like a semi-pro football team. Ha Ha. Geaux Saints!
