Re: Trending up or trending down?

... but now there is nothing to point to that says the pass rush will be better. Not even a full season of Heyward and Worilds? Shazier will at least be faster than what we had there last year, and Jones really can't be any less productive. Long way to be considered a "good" pass rush, bu...

Re: Trending up or trending down?

Hoping that Jones will improve and Worilds will earn his contract is not something that says big upswing in my book. But PIT is now a pretty young team, and it's the development of those young guys that makes or breaks you. I would have said if Jones is part of this equation, what have we seen or w...

Re: Trending up or trending down?

I would never say a team with Ben Roethlisberger is trending down. Lots of young and new, developing players. There's definite potential. Here's an interesting, related article I've been meaning to post. m PIT appears to REALLY like their group of receivers. Article is the first time I've really got...

Re: 53 Man Roster

So everyone's predicting Sean Spence is out. Is he practice squad-eligible, or is he just cut? Good question. You're not eligible if you have more than 1 year accrued service. There's also potential for a 3rd PS year if a team contains no less than 53 players on the active/inactive list at all time...

I want to be the team that can maintain a 14 point lead, whether than means scoring more or keep the opponent from doing so.

Heyward was another beast late last year. Those two with another year under their belt for a full season will do more for a defe...

I've rarely seen a Manning offense take its foot off the gas. You don't become a stat whore by grinding clock, especially if you're chasing records.

LOL, I even remember a commercial with Manning where he's throwing a TD with less than 3 minutes left....already up 21+.

Re: OT: Andre Johnson wants out of Houston

Decastro is under contract through 2015. I don't doubt other teams have more cap flexibility, but the Steelers could sign him this year if they wanted to. Absolutely. But that would force a decision on 1 of Decastro, Worilds, or Heyward. 2 are under contract, yes, but it mandates a choice. I'm sure...
