Nick Herbig

By all accounts he's looked super sharp and detailed this year.

He's been beating Fautanu like a red headed step child over and over again.

Hopefully he's heavily in the rotation, keeping Watt and Highsmith fresh.

Maybe they can figure a way to get all three on the field.

Imagine Watt, Herbig and Wilson all out there at the same time. That shit gives the Lynch Meister a stiffy.

NFL radio discussion a cpl days ago and they thought he’d easily see 40% snap count/usage rotating in.

Should be good for everyone.

I have trumped different looks and rotations a few years now...
Seems like we can be much more imaginative in attacking offenses.

You mean actually disguising the pass rush, to help make it more effective by confusing the OLine??

Nah... why would they ever do that.

Just set your front 4 in the same positions, 99% of the time, and let them win on their own.

I mean, eff employing schemes for tactical advantage.

With guys like Herbig and Wilson, I can't imagine them not.

Unless the Steelers' offense can score points early and build a lead, opponents will just run the ball straight over the undersized Herbig. He's a nice situational rusher to have off the bench IF you can get the other team into must-pass situations. But let's hope he doesn't see the field too much, because that would mean missing either Watt or Highsmith.

I put the sons of bitches on a three man rotation. I think he holds up.

Has he been spending 6 hours a day at Primanti's and the other 8 in the weight room since the season ended?

herbig is more of a known commodity at the NFL level than Fautanu, so first impression would be this is more bad news on Fautanu than good news for herbig.

Considering Fautanu is switching positions, I'm willing to give him a learning curve in pass pro. I'd be willing to bet Big Troy vs. Herbig on running plays might be a horse of a different color already.

You homies may want to recollect what Herbig did in a limited roll last season. He isn't tiny.

Exactly which is why they get dominated in the playoffs on the rare occasion they actually make it there. Another thing all the Tomlin apologists ignore.
Howard Griffith had to resort to chop-blocking him during the 1997 AFC Championship Game. An incredulous Kirkland asked Griffith, “Why do you have to use cheap tactics like chop-blocking?” Griffith replied “Why do you have to be a 300-pound linebacker?”

I don't know, it seems like since maybe 2012, and certainly post-Shazier, we've always had at least one weak link position group we're scheming to cover up, which can severely limit creativity, and give a good team and coach something to attack in the playoffs. Not an excuse, just an observation. This year, it's going to be the D-line.

I read that Benton dropped 10lbs, but that he expects to play better this season. He did not look like a guy who had 10lbs to lose.

The DL looks to be a soft spot. Since sometime around 2020 the players up front have not looked big enough.

Great for Herbig, not so great for Fautanu.

Sincerely though, I hope TF does not emerge from camp looking like he is 295 lbs. He looked well proportioned at U-Dub.

(sarca) Even if obviously undersized by ¼ of an inch (/sarca).

Well, drafting players to play out of position is always a great idea, particularly in the first round
