    Well if he wants to stay in Pittsburgh he better ball out this season, my prediction for him this season 1,100 yards and 10-11 TDs.

    I think he means Juju which would be plain crazy given his well documented feelings about Bell and AB getting theirs. I mean if you support the divas in their scorched earth screw the team attitude why would you be against two team first, well liked guys getting their money that just plain crazy.

    Hope he has a good season and if he does I’d have no issue with the team giving him a sensible second contract. Nobody is giving him RB1 money and he wants to stay in Pittsburgh.

    Perhaps he could be a valuable rotational player on a team friendly deal for a couple of years.

    Which 3 games do you think he will be healthy enough to meet that prediction? Yes, I am being a little sour grapish here. I really do hope you are right!

    He might be more Franco Harris this season than the previous ones and no I don't mean production wise I mean he will step put of bounds instead of fighting and getting hurt

    He better be ready to compete. Time is running out, got to be able to stay on the field.

    love the guy but he'll be hurt before game 5. He just can't stay healthy. I'm hoping he goes the whole year with zero injuries but I can't count on that

    I think...If he, Snell,and McFarland would have a running back by committee type deal AND like Thorn said "Don't try to run somebody over every play"...This backfield could be more than adequate

    I like Conner but his mind is writing checks his body can't cash. This may be his last year here or he is put back on the depth chart as a reduced salary. On the free agency market, that may be all he'd get anyway but we'll see. Hope he has a big year in 2020. Its nice having good players around like him with us.

    The over/under for Conner's rushing yards in 2020 is 899 yards, I would take the over. His over/under for TDs is 7.5, I would take the over on that also.

    My money would be on both unders. Like to see him be available for our playoffs.
    (Heinz is wrong about 7-9 with or without Ben)

    If he misses time this year, I can't imagine any team being interested. Maybe the Steelers could sign him at minimum to keep as 3rd string guy.
