This. Preseason is so lame.
Yes, but I'd be lying if I said waiting out all camp without seeing any live action sucked. Only chance we get for years, maybe ever, to see some of these guys play.
True. Maybe two games.
They shouldn’t even play starters at all

Browns don’t strike me as that bad....soooo...

How good are the Ravens? Me thinks very good.
Browns still can’t stop the run, and their OL is a mess. Their run game looks elite vs a poor run D, though.

Re: Bungles vs Stains

Jonah Williams is not having himself a good game. Since the second drive the Bengals have put a TE next to him. They even went heavy on his side on a run with a second TE. He is a RT at best and as long as the Bengals think he can be the answer at LT he is going to get Burrows hit, hard and often. ...

Re: WRs game one...

One other thing, the route running and the orchestration of the WRs collectively was very shocking to me. What am I talking about? Well, usually I only notice other teams being successful at picks, rubs, at getting DBs to run into each other, have to consciously move around one another. I always ma...

Re: Game Ball - Bud Dupree

Priority #1 is Watt at all costs. Bud is worth 11-12/per. More than that, and you roll with Ola or Highsmith if they have shown promise this year. Juju is probably gone unless he does a really friendly hometown deal and I doubt that. Conner is a non-issue given his health. I'm with that. But then t...

Re: Pleasantly surprised at Snell's newfound speed...

Hey B2B, remember my notion that in 2022 the Steelers starting guards may be Fieler and Dotson? My view is that DeCastro could see a payday of some $12-15 million per season in a new contract and that he will unfortunately leave as Alan Faneca did back in the day. Faneca left for a 5 year, $40 mill...

Re: Pleasantly surprised at Snell's newfound speed...

If you have access to NFL game pass or even to watch Thursday night, watch Browns’ 1st round pick Jedrick Wills and tell me he would even be able to start for the Steelers, let alone be a better OL than Feiler or Dotson. Wills was unconscionably bad on Sunday. I just went back and watched the highl...

Re: Pleasantly surprised at Snell's newfound speed...

Steelers have a good problem at OG. Feiler, Decastro, and Dotson all could be Pro Bowl starters or better. Dotson a Pro Bowler? Can we let him play a few games before making a statement like that? Feiler also... I’ve been on record for almost a year in saying I think Feiler is a future All-Pro G. H...

Re: Initial diagnosis for Zach Banner is a torn ACL.

Depth at tackle is the biggest issue for sure. I really liked the Jarron Jones signing and I wonder if he might be a better swing tackle candidate than Gray. I won’t be shocked if they don’t rush to sign a veteran—they don’t want to give up that $10M in cap space they could roll over into next year....

Re: Steelers at Giants Game Recap Wk 1: Waiting to Exhale

Yes is the answer to the question don’t you think Bell also benefitted from a great OL and teams scared shitless of Ben & AB. Of course he did. Bell’s not even a bad guy/teammate but you can see what he and AB have done without Ben and Tomlin managing/helping them.

Re: Initial diagnosis for Zach Banner is a torn ACL.

I laugh at "disastrous for Conner" from a guy who apparently has never seen Dotson play. If the line is AV-Feiler-Pouncey-Dotson-Ckuks, Steelers will be absolutely fine.

"Dan Orlavsky on NFL Live said Jones was 13-15 for 180 against the Steelers zone coverage. And that was with Jones under tremendous pressure most of the game." P.S.: in his career before this game, nearly all of Jones's mistakes happened vs zone coverage. He's been great vs man coverage. Seems like ...

Re: Steelers at Giants Game Recap Wk 1: Waiting to Exhale

JC isn't an NFL Running back. He was a Pro Bowler 2 years ago. Now injuries may be starting to slow him down, but that play calling yesterday did Conner no favors. I have a feeling before this year is over, Conner will have his share of big games. That was a bit of a red herring... Conner was fed t...

Don't count out Jarron Jones as the swing tackle. He showed pretty well in the XFL. He has the tools to be a good fill-in.

Re: Alejandro's helmet name choice

Tomlin said in his press conference that AV discussed with him and Tomlin and the team supported his choice. This is a non-story.

No one "made" anyone put anyone's name on the helmet. The team got together and decided the name they would put up.

I worry that Morris is too much of a C and not enough G. But, with Dotson, Feiler, & Decastro coming back soon... G depth is not the issue.

OT, OTOH Yikes. Went from a strength to a question mark.
