    it took gates time to learn that aspect of the game not playing college ball. gates is a hof receiver as a TE. heath had a better complete game at the position and i do think he could someday get there. i do think we will be alright at this position in time. james seems like a hard worker and we have a pretty seasoned coach at that spot to help these guys out. i agree we have other weapons and will adjust. :cool:

    So now he is saying the reports are just rumors and not true. Also as someone else brought up if he was in concussion protocol he wouldn't be allowed to talk to the media under the rules of it and he has been this whole time. This is giving me a headache.

    Grimble sucks, I doubt he makes the team. All I kept hearing from the media who were at training camp was he didn't do much or dropped passes, in the Eagles game he was wide open and dropped a pass. If Green can't play then Grimble may have a chance to stick around.

    I don't know remember lat year against the eagles James was a lot worse than that. What 2 dropped TD passes. Hell I've seen Brown drop a ball. Drops happen you can't judge a guy by one drop.

    Ok Grimble sucks and we already know David Johnson sucks so now we have a guy
    that hasn't seen the practice field YET and we have the underwhelming Jesse James
    suiting up, does this look like a championship contender roster for the TE position that Todd Haley likes
    to use in the passing game?

    no but everyone knew it was going to be way different without heath. this is what we have and i am behind these young guys to get better. one drop hardly defines their whole worth. you lose bell, bryant and heath in one year and it puts a damper on anyones high powered offense, ben or not. :cool:

    It's not just one drop there are reports he does the same thing in practice, he won't make the team that way.

    At this point, my biggest hope is that one of either Eli Rogers or Coates really steps up this year so we can run more 3WR sets, and leave Johnson or whoever in to block more. I don't really know what we're going to do if we are stuck with James as #1 TE, and Coates and Rogers both fail to make an impact. James may end up being a serviceable tight end, but he's not going to draw attention away from Brown or Bell out of the backfield. He's not the sure-handed, reliable guy like Miller, and isn't the athletic freak like Green.

    I honestly think Rogers is going to explode on to the scene. He is built for the slot and He will be able to really exploit the gaping holes Brown is going to leave in defenses. I'm honestly worried about Wheaton playing the number 2 spot. I'm hoping Coates gets his stuff together and takes the other outside spot.

    Mac, this isn't about Heath. It's about Green, if he is damaged goods the Steelers do not have the TE talent to win the battles
    that TE's need to win and for the team to be productive. Our TE position in Todd Haley's offense needs to have at the minninum
    60 catches. Everybody says well AB/ Dope smoker LB will make up the difference, this is why it is so important to have a TE that can play
    to take the pressure off the these 2 guys. I have great respect for the talent that AB & LB have but with you opponents
    showing no respect for the TE position, you have defenders shading towards these 2.

    one ace in the hole thats been doing quite well as a receiver is our FB nix. this could make up for a lot. spreading defenses out with 4 wides also helps take a lot of pressure off. it's also been written that the pony backfield of bell and DW will be utilized. all these things take the pressure off a good bit. :cool:

    Bit of news on Ladarius Green.

    http://www.timesonline.com/sports/s...cle_a048c4d8-6a1d-11e6-8e67-972f6e30bc5d.html

    On Wednesday morning, Green confirmed that he was practicing get-offs and cuts with a resistance band tethered to a pillar outside the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex.


    "It’s helping me with the push off on my ankle and putting weight on it. It’s helping me get more explosive," Green said. "It had a lot of resistance on it."

    Green said that as the strength of his ankle continues to increase, so do the intensity of the workouts with which he's tasked. Wednesday morning was one of his most challenging workouts to date, and he felt good about it.

    "Today was the first day I’ve done that," Green said. "I’m usually trying to master different stuff instead of me doing the same thing every day."

    Green's status for a return is still uncertain at this point, but he feels his ankle is getting better on a daily basis. Ben Roethlisberger said on Monday that Green has continued to keep up constant communication with him, whether it's "What do you think about this?" or "What did you want here?"

    If he can get healthy with Rogers in the slot this offensive is going to be nasty. Like Possibly one of the all time offenses if they stay healthy.

    Tight ends just keep the business from booming.
