    Yeah. 18 killed two possessions already. Don’t care how good of a route runner you are. If you can’t be counted on in critical moments, then you’re of no use.

    Number 21 was pathetic as well. He gave up on that last play. I know KC would have scored but he has to show better effort.

    DJ is a mirage... you think he is really good... then you run up to him and just find the drive killer

    Yeah, he drops some balls but he's the only one who actually gets open. There are way bigger problems on this team.

    It seems like Washington was under used. Much more reliable hands than 18. I've never disliked 18, but maybe he should graduate from catching tennis balls to trying out footballs. Might make a difference? But anyways, sucks that 13 will be gone after this season.

    Yeah right. DJ doesn’t need to go anywhere. He just doesn’t need to be the featured receiver.

    Take him as number 2 all day, no?

    There is just a bit missing. I think he can find it but need like 10lbs more on him so he can feel comfortable with taking the hit.

    On any decent team, 18 is a #2 wr.

    Yeah. No.

    107 catches. Sure, he's probably not a true #1, and he had a couple of critical drops tonight. But you're delusional if you think that made the difference in the game. DJ could've had 40 catches and we wouldn't have sniffed KC in the 2nd half - we got spanked.

    You guys are crazy. He was like 3rd on all time Steelers receptions this season and over a 1,000 yards and did that without prime Ben.

    He was among the lowest drops this season. The 2 drops this game while bad did nothing to change the outcome. You think they win this game had he caught them? You think they even score with what we witnessed from the offense? Did you guys not see everyone else’s dropping passes. Get a grip.

    Can we put this thread in the trash with the “trade TJ he’s too expensive” thread?

    The problem with DJ is not the drops.

    The problem is that he's your best wide receiver.

    Hey, Glenn, I think I saw you in the stands tonight on TV. Were you wearing a Roethlisberger jersey?

    Diontae clearly struggles under pressure. He did kill two drives.

    Realistically it is about his value and getting to a second contract.

    Steelers should see if they can trade him. He's a great player and a great teammate but he just doesn't have it in key moments. He becomes one of the worst players on the team.

    ...

    That said the razor thin margins in terms of winning and losing magnify issues.

    Najee Harris fumbled today. That was the only turnover.

    The Steelers no longer have the defense to cover Ben's mistakes or anyone else's.

    The Steelers passing game averaging 4 Y/A means they have to hit 3 passes in a row just for a first down.
