As far as the Steelers first offensive drive of the 2007 season is concerned, it can be summed up in one word – impressive. Forget about everything else, it sure was nice to see the Steelers come out and make a statement with their first drive of the Mike Tomlin era. It wasn’t anything all that special, just six plays, 80 yards, and ended with a short touchdown run from Najeh Davenport. The drive was highlighted by two big plays from Ben Roethlisberger to Cedric Wilson, the first of which was for 55 yards, the other a big third down play for 18 yards that set up Davenport for the TD run. It was a good night for the Steelers number one offense.
Big Ben looked like a star once again, Wilson looked like a guy that can have an impact when called up, and the biggest thing was the play calling lived up to its billing – agressive. If you didn’t like what you saw from the Steelers on Sunday night, then you have some issues. It was everything that the Steelers were looking for. Sure it’s preseason, but I’d rather it be like it was than the disaster like it could have been like it was for the Saints.
