    Don't forget about the possibility of being a single high Safety in a pinch.;)

    I normally dont have a problem with DHB's spot on the team but this year I thought they let a guy go that I felt was better suited to play the slot (overtaking Rogers eventually) and could also give you reps on the outside.

    Fast forward a month and seeing the Steelers plan involving JuJu, Im no longer bothered by letting Ayers go.

    I'll never understand this forums fascination with DHB. Considering all he brings to the table. Special teams and WR. I can name 5 players I haven't see touch the field yet that would be better suited to complain about their roster spot.

    It's the 53rd man roster spot fallacy. Every year there is one guy the fans think is a wasted roster spot who could be better used by player x. This year it's DHB, I remember when it was Logan.

    Nope,
    Nope, we just want our team to be the best thst they can be. And dhb shouldve been gone three years ago. We can thank MB suspensipn for him still even being on the team, because he was cut. With less talent at the wr position at that time...lol

    Ok but Tomlin loves what DHB brings to the team and as the article points out his special teams play is really without question so I think you are going to have a long wait.

    I was fine with keeping DHB. I still remember special teams nightmares of long returns by opponents, so if he prevents some of those then great. However, if the team always knew they'd be holding onto DHB and getting Bryant back, while already having AB and Eli, then maybe they overdrafted at the WR position at the expense of other needs.

    I see PWP has hacked the database again.

    This was the way I felt as well, and like you say a month later I was wrong. It is great having lots of weapons but at some point you have to look at other spots as well and that is just what the Steelers did. AB, MB, JuJu that is shaping up to a nice big 3 there. :thumbs_up:
