    Okay, now you're just a Tomlin apologist:smiley1:

    If it's good Tomlin should get the credit, if it's bad, it should shared?

    If you get enough inches, enough times, it could be a triple entre thingy!

    Not sure I even understand the point of the OP..... Our gun is empty... we don't have a pick until late 2nd round and nothing in the 3rd until a comp pick...... we couldn't mortgage the future without sending players packing..... and I don't see us trading away "proven player" plus draft picks deal getting done. I don't think we have enough ammo to get back into the top of the 2nd round.... let alone find some stud to magically save the team.

    Do you think that another team may be willing to give up something for Rudolph? Someone who thinks they have the QB whisperer who can fix him? Throw in Hodges and Lynch just for good measure?

    They, collectively, don't do us any good and could be easily replaced.

    You need a qb before anything if you want to win the big one

    The defense was terrible. No qb is winning the sb with a completely trash def. Look at mahomes. Great as he is they added the honey badger, Frank Clark, spags as d coordinator, and a few other pieces and they had a top ten defense. If he had the same def from last yr they wouldn't have won it all.

    Both just don't have the talent to cut it.

    I think the point is that they could trade 2021 picks to move up. The Steelers 2020 second rounder and a 2021 first rounder would get you back in to the first round this year I would imagine. Not saying that is what they will or even should do but it is an option for them.

    If anything I'd rather the team do the opposite. It's probably more realistic that Ben isn't going to come back and have an MVP season. I'm not advocating blowing up the team but I wouldn't be against trading down and trying to stockpile picks.
    Yes, that mid second rounder really isn't worth much, but there are a few holes on this team that would be maybe best served by having multiple shots to get a pick right.

    More athletes surprise in the transition to Sunday ball than live up to the hype. Brady was drafted correctly in the 6th round based on his college performance.

    Imo they basically already are. The Steelers are tight against the cap. There's only so much one can do with the cap space.

    Overall I think they have been doing a pretty good job with managing things.

    Trying to squeeze water from rocks now

    If you think about all the college teams out there, almost everyone has a stud player on the team. Some of the bigger better schools may have two or three. They may have one on offense and one on defense, so I believe there is still top talent at 49 and beyond. If it's what a team needs well that's a win win. If the top 25 college teams have one stud on offense and one on defense we fall right into that space. We should be sitting fairly well with 3 picks out of the top 100 players. It should be enough to add one stud and a couple of decent depth picks. :cool:

    True, but he made a huge catch late in the AFC Championship game.

    Heyward was definitely a huge disappointment in that game. That was probably the best season of his career, but he absolutely disappeared against the Jags.

    The entire defense dissapeared. Blake Bortles looked like Blake montana

    Going into that game I thought the Steelers DL had the advantage, I considered the Jaguars OL average, Heyward, Tuitt, and Hargrave did nothing.

    Fournette had plenty of room to run. The Jaguars kicked the Steelers' asses up front that day. The only reason it was competitive at all is the Steelers had gifted skill players making spectacular plays to keep pulling them back into the game.

    If Ben didn't gift them 14 points with his turnovers, the Steelers probably win that game, the Jags #1 defense couldn't stop the Steelers offense.

    I saw it as a lot of underneath yards the Jags were willing to give up when they had a 2+ score lead, and 4 miracle TD receptions where the Jags had perfect coverage every time.
