I wish Tuitt felt the same way .
So Ju Ju will take Ray Ray's spot? Ray Ray seems like the only WR with a pulse lately. But everyone of our WR's have been perfectly avg so why not see what he can do.
Claypool finally had a solid game with no screw ups last week otherwise I'd say make him the #4 WR. Dj's got the dropsies back. Juju has great hands and is a significantly better run blocker than any of the other WR's plus he can break tackles w/ the ball. I guess Claypool does run with some authority but his mental lapses and terrible ball skills drives you nuts. It sure would be nice to see the OC actually use Ray Ray properly and get him some slants and crossing routes just to see if he can get into the open field. Ray Ray and Harris are deadly in the open field and up until recently neither have been properly used in this offense. Our only hope to win this game is Harris. He will need to take over the game via running and as a receiver. JuJu should play because of his run blocking ability.
Juju is the only guy IMO that is capable of consistently running these stupid WR screens we've been failing at all season but he's not game ready. I don't mean he's not physically fit, I mean he's not ready to take the hits , he's not up to game speed, he doesn't have the timing needed with Ben to execute a lot of routes. So IMO his only worth is blocking and maybe some short passes in a zone. So yea I fully expect the OC to play JuJu and send him deep while Ben gets destroyed by missed blocks on the O-line. That is something Tomlin would totally do. I'm sure in MT's mind this is the big surprise KC will never expect.
Pure speculation on my part, but I wonder if there have been behind the scenes talks between the Steelers and Juju about a return next year. This is a big risk he's taking before he's set to be a free agent. It'd make more sense if he knew he had some financial security secured.
It could also just be a guy wanting to play with Ben one last time in the playoffs.
I'm just being optimistic because I want Juju on this team next year and beyond.
Why would you say he takes Ray Ray's spot? Cody White is on the roster. That is who will be moved to make room.
30 seconds may be enough time for Mahomes to score.
I mean on the playing field . Not the active roster. I'm not saying he should take Ray Ray's spot. Just asking who's going to sit on the bench if we play Juju.
Okay, maybe. I seem to recall a few games ago Chase and Ray Ray played every other series so maybe JuJu fills in for Washington. Definitely if he plays, others will lose snaps.
He is another weapon. If he's ready then let it fly
work him in slowly. Yes, Ray Ray is quick, has been Ben's go to, as teams focus on 11 and 18. If we go 4 wide any (which i HOPE we do), then give JuJu reps there of course. Ben loves him on the pop pass, underneath the LB's. When JuJu went out, the O really came to a grind!!!
Jim Colony the Steelers beat reporter who is at practice every day, said on 93.7 the Fan today that his guess is that Juju will play on Sunday.
juju before the injury.
3 reception per game avg
25.8 yards per game
8.6 yds per reception
53.6 % catch percentage.
I would work JuJu in slowly. Have him play the slot some.
If JuJu was activated, he would probably be on a snap count, Ray Ray would still get the majority of snaps IMO.
JuJu still has a job, and AB doesn't .
1 target 1st Q
2 targets 2nd Q
3 targets 3rd Q
6 targets 4th Q
I hope this same thread headline is true going into 2022 season. JuJu bleeds black and gold.
That's fine but the main thing that should matter is the production.
So how many games are you going to take to get him up to speed? It’s one or done.
More proof of how dumb AB is
How? He was right about juju.
By being an ass and posting that
I think if JuJu were to start you would maybe only dress two running backs.
If you don't do that Washington would probably not dress. But I'd rather have Washington than Ballage in that situation.
Harris and Snell
You would also have Watt available in an emergency to run the ball.
But juju was ok for posting that "I'm ready" pic?
