And they didn't throw 30 td's either. Or 20. Or 10. Paint the whole picture, plzkthanks.
Hell, I bet I could throw 30 interceptions...they should give me a try!
For the record Rudolph and Hodges combined for 18 TD passes and 17 picks.
You’d be broken in small pieces long before 30. Just saying
I think the whole picture is he threw a ton of TD passes, unfortunately, he threw just as many interceptions.
Is that NOT a league first?
The Steelers would definitely manage him to get those TOs down as that's been their MO forever. Question is, are you willing to take the good with the bad and ugly?
Winston has an interception problem. Winston in Pittsburgh in November and December would have a really big interception problem.
Not worse off, but not better either.
No-one can say but you can bet your ass it would have been more exiting than watching 30 passes for 17 yards
I'm just used to our gunslinger. Backing him up with another one is familiar, and IMHO, acceptable. I would have gladly taken the picks if we were even a relatively potent offense.
I remember being nervous every time MR went back, and I didn't feel that way about any QB we ever had, and that goes back to Joe Gilliam and Terry Hanratty
Rudolph threw 13 touchdown passes. He and Hodges combined for 18. That isn't good, but it is more than 10.
I felt the exact same way. From the second regular-season snap, I was uncomfortable with him. And the uneasy feeling never went away.
My apologies. I looked at a stat sheet online and didn't realize it didn't include all his games.
I got nervous when Kordell Stewart would drop back to pass. When he would pull the ball down and take off and run I always breathed a sigh of relief.
Arians is supposed to be a QB whisperer, and he couldn't fix Winston.
Bob Labriola gave a very definitive answer in the recent Q & A on the Steelers website in relation to Winston. The team are not even considering it. I think we can file it under ‘not happening’ at this point.
They have some good receivers to boot. Jamais is better than Mariota or Keenum at the QB position though.
Depends on your definition of better. Jameis is more talented than Keenum or Mariota imo but he is the last one I’d take from that trio to be my starter because I feel he will always give the balk away too much even if somebody can reign him in.
Mariota isn’t great either but he was 9-7 most years with Tennessee and while he doesn’t elevate those around him I don’t remember him handing wins to the opposition on a platter the way Jameis does every other week.
Jamais needs his guys to get more open, like Marsha complained about last year.... He will throw the ball though, give his receivers & dbs a chance. Mariota likes to tuck & run. Kenuum needs the middle open to be effective.
We've won games with Batch and Leftwich. I'd take Winston over Rudolph or Duck.
Hey NE Missouri Steeler
As I have been clamoring around here for about a month now, find the money for Andy Dalton. Somehow, somewhere. As I have been saying to those around here that this would be financially impossible, I say this in such situations: "If we can put a man on the Moon". Make it happen Front Office. The man can ball. He is a proven winner. Good career statistics. He knows our division. Seems like a good personality.

Steeler favorite Landry Jones is available...
Dalton is under contract still for 17 million next year, no team is trading for him at that salary.
It's all media driven
Do you know what his status is currently? I mean is he technically still with the Bengals or is he on the market as a Free Agent? Also, if he wants to play then either him and his agent and/or the Bengals may have to be flexible on that price tag; especially if there are no takers for that price tag. I really do not fully know how these contracts and Free Agency work. Do you or anyone else here on the Board? Please inform me if you understand this process/situation.
I mean if he has a $17 million price anchor around his leg and there are no takers, then is it possible to get that price reduced?
Once again I do not fully understand how these things work and would appreciate if you or someone else who is more knowledgeable to explain the scenario above that I stated. I really think that he would be an ideal fit for us. Again here are my reasons:
He is a proven winner.
He has good career statistics.
He knows our division.
He is really yearning to make post-season play and win.
He never has had any on or off the field issues (good teammate)
I do not think that he would mind a temporary back-up role even if Ben returns healthy.
I think (gut-feeling) that he would love to play for us. A real winner.
He probably has had it with the "atmosphere" in Cincinnati.
