The News

The Steelers beat the Eagles, 27-13, in their final Heinz Field tuneup of the preseason. Only a Thursday-nighter at Carolina remains. The performance of the offense was intriguing, but not as intriguing as the story that fans were turned away from Heinz Field restrooms last night. Do we have any witnesses out there who can describe that undoubtedly ugly scene?

As for the actual game action, the play of Charlie Batch inspired the postgame KDKA Sports Showdown crew to debate whether or not there could be a QB controversy at some point this season. If that was thrown out there strictly to generate blogger buzz, consider their mission accomplished.
I also need to throw congratulations out to Willie Reid, for exactly replicating the 2006 performance of Ricardo Colclough while returning punts. Fielding them inside the 10, fumbling them (inside the 10) if only Reid would go down for the season with a phantom injury like Colclough did...

--The Buccos are the hot team to bet on, thanks to their recent offensive outburst. No, they haven't scored 30 in a game (that would usually take about 10 games), but they're making some big winners among gamblers.
--Not a good evening on Sunday: Owen Wilson apparently tried to kill himself last night, and Hulk Hogan's son Nick almost died in a car wreck.
