Eagles sloppy on both sides in loss to Steelers

August 19 CSN Philly 

It’s almost impossible for a preseason game to be a disaster.  This one was.  The Eagles’ starting defense allowed touchdown drives of 80 and 96 yards on the only drives Ben Roethlisberger played, Michael Vick threw three ugly interceptions in just 12 pass attempts, and the Eagles were hammered by the Steelers Thursday night at Heinz Field.  The final score was 24-14, but the Eagles trailed 21-0 and were outgained 262-71 before Andy Reid removed his starters at halftime.

Eagles safety Allen has rough showing in defeat

August 19 CSN Philly 

Nate Allen had two excuses at his disposal Thursday night. The Eagles free safety chose to use neither.  Allen had a rough night and so did the rest of his teammates as the Pittsburgh Steelers rolled to a 24-point lead in beating the Eagles 24-14 in a preseason game at Heinz Field.  The Steelers drove 14 plays for touchdowns in each of their two possessions, going a combined 176 yards against a new and improved “Dream Team” defense that added cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, end Jason Babin and tackle Cullen Jenkins in free agency.
