Okay, I'm reaching out to my all 22 brethren out there. Is JJ really as bad as he appears to be to those of us who simply watch the games and try to observe certain players from time to time?
In Thursday's game I saw JJ get owned by the LT and he seemed to just get absorbed into the lineman blocking him and unable to disengage. He had no speed rush, no bull rush, no inside move whatsoever. He also missed at least one tackle behind the LOS and didn't appear to be as solid in the run game which has been his strong suit to this point. As the game wore on and each defensive series became more critical, I didn't see JJ at all. It was all James Harrison.
I don't want to beat a dead horse, but my concerns about JJ being able to develop into something special at this level increase from week to week. I'm not so sure at this point that the spinal stenosis he was diagnosed with at USC is not affecting him more than we think.
What are you "dark room and a projector" guys seeing?
We've added something different this year (H/T @Ray D for suggesting it). You may be familiar with this already, but if you're not, the survivor (or last man standing pool) is a pick 'em game where you only pick one team to win each week.
Sounds pretty easy, but the catch is that you cannot pick the same team to win twice. If your selected team wins that week, great, you move on to the next week. If your chosen team loses (you get a strike), then you're eliminated.
To play, click the Survivor menu item on the navigation menu at the top of any page. On the Survivor page, you'll see the 2015 Regular Season Survivor Elimination Pick'em pool under the available pools, join it.
Once you've joined, click the manage my picks link in the sub-navigation menu on the top left.
From there, click the red link that says Make Pick and make your pick for the week. It shows every game for the week. Select the button next to the team you want to...
It's that time of year again. As you know, the pick'em is integrated into the forum this year, and the pool is now open to join. To join the pool, click on the Pickem link on the navigation bar at the top of every page (or just follow this link). http://thesteelersfans.com/forums/pickem/ There are only a few weeks showing right now. I'll have the rest loaded in soon.
You'll see the open pool there. Join it.
To make your picks, go to the manage your picks tab on the sub-navigation bar. (There's also a drop down menu for it under the main Pickem tab).
From here, click the edit your picks link.
After that, save your picks and you're good to go. Reminders are tied in to the alert system, so, if you're part of the pool and haven't made your picks, you should get a reminder to do so in the middle of the week. (These can be changed in your alert preferences)...
Figured I'd start this off as some moves are already starting to happen. I'll update this post with the list of cuts and with the final roster.
