    Agree 1000% here...It's just amazing how this team has so many holes and so many problems, yet it's all on Canada and KP. WITF has to happen before folks start realizing that maybe it's because of our HEAD COACH, and not just everyone else? I can't figure out why Dumblin is NOT held accountable for anything wrong with this team, nor can I figure out what so many Steelers fans think is going to change with this guy...do they think he's gonna wake up one day and become some good coach or some sh!t? WTF is going on in Pittsburgh?

    We don't need to just get rid of Canada, we need to get rid of the ENTIRE coaching staff! As for KP, he doesn't need replaced, he needs DEVELOPED! Does anyone truly believe Mike Dumblin is going to develop a QB in Pittsburgh? Hell no he's not, that's a joke. Bradshaw needed the Emperor to develop, or he was going to get booted right out of the league. Why wouldn't the Steelers want to afford KP the same luxury as TB? KP needs the next young, hungry Noll on the sideline, not an average coach like Dumblin.

    Fire up the Dumblin excuse machine all you want, but it's not going to help this football team out...he's turned us into every other team in the league right now. If that's acceptable to you, maybe you're a Steelers FOLLOWER, but no way in hell you're a FAN, imho.

    The 2018 to 2020 Draft Classes have not helped... at all.

    The Offensive Line woes are further highlighted by this article here!!


    What is funnier is people stating Pat Meyer is the problem... except that the Offensive Line Coach teaches technique, discipline and fundamentals. As far as any of us know, Pat Meyer is not the Running Game Specialist. None of this relevant though to last night.


    Kenny Pickett is currently a problem. Matt Canada is a major issue. One of these can be solved.... the other simply cannot.

    I liked Anton Harrison coming out, because I did not believe that one of the 3 LTs would be available. I was hoping he would be available at #32, as I thought the Steelers would take a CB in the 1st round. Harrison went at #27.

    Right now Anton Harrison is the Jags starting RT. Going through some growing pains as he was primarily Oklahoma's LT: 24 starts at LT and 1 start at RT. (Sound Familiar?)

    Quarterback Deshaun Watson will not face league discipline for the contact he made with an official during the Cleveland Browns' 26-22 lossto the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.

    The contact in question came after Watson scrambled out of bounds in the third quarter for no gain and was flagged 15-yards for an unnecessary roughness facemask penalty. Watson then appeared to make contact with an official while arguing the flag.

    The NFL said on Tuesday that the contact did not warrant punishment.

    There may still be punishment for the face mask penalties.

    Yep yep yep yep...and yep

    Over and over I heard ...

    " Kahn artist" " Kahn fleeced another one" ...done this, did that...annoiting him as the greatest...CONNED EVERYONE...

    Now , I admit...I was fooled too...Loved the overall makeup of this Team, and the depth, and was very optimistic...

    It's only been 2 games, But the entire Team.lools like Dog****...


    But I said it a 100 times...The 2 most important things are the HC and QB, and we have neither...

    With all that being said, We should STILL be 3-1 after the next 2 weeks, Because those Teams are terrible

    The team is 1-1 with a loss to one of the top two or three teams in the league, but you are ready to say the entire roster sucks.

    Much of the praise of Khan was related to the draft, and it is way too early to judge any of those guys. Most scouting reports talked about Jones being a little raw, so it is no surprise that he isn't starting yet. Porter has been as advertised. He is athletic and puts himself in good position, but he is too handsy. He will need to break that bad habit.

    Benton already looks solid. The question is if he can be more than that.

    Trading down and still getting Washington still looks like a great move. He has already shown the impact he can make as a blocker. They have to get him involved in the passing game, but that's not a failing on his part. That trade got them Herbig, who shows great promise. He has made a few plays in relatively limited snaps. He got a key pressure on Watson last night which led to the second of the two facemask penalties.

    In case you didn't notice, the best of the free-agent linebackers they brought in, Holcomb, made a big impact last night.

    It would be silly to give up on Seumalo this early. He has been too good to write him off.

    The one thing they did that I am certain was a mistake was letting Sutton get away and trying to replace him with what's left of Peterson.

    Should they have taken Gonzalez instead of Jones? I think so, but I'm not sure if they had to agree to pass on Gonzalez to get the Patriots to make the trade in the first round.

    Wallace shouldn't be the #2 CB, he has been bad the first two games.

    You're forgetting Warren's 66 yes receiving on 4 receptions.... 21 of Najee's yes came on one run as he was basically stuffed on 7 or 8 of his others

    I'm not forgetting anything. YPC is YPC. I mean I could basically say that Barry Sanders sucked because He had more loss yards than any major RB. I'm also not forgetting that one runs when the D is basically in run stopping mode, and the other runs mainly when they offer a lighter box for a 3rd down pass play, and Yet Najee still has the longer runs, and better YPC. :shrug:
    I really think sometimes people think they see something they don't, and then when others say the same they automatically agree....whether is correct, or not. I'm not blaming anyone....it's a human condition.
    I also didn't forget How Warren allowed KFP to get killed by not picking up a critical block on a free rusher.
    Now....realize.....I really like Warren, and want nothing, but good for Him, and He helps the team, but let's not get it messed up who's better rb.:thumbs_up:
    It's all good :drinks:

    Najee is absolutely the more talented runner overall, however, right now Warren is running with more authority and explosiveness... We all saw last season how much better Najee is when he's running north/south rather than east/west, and I see him falling back into bad habits... and no, the o-line isn't doing him any favors, but sometimes, instead of trying to make everyone miss, he needs to start putting his shoulder down and make defenders "want" to miss..... right now that is the difference I see between him and Warren..
    Warren is finishing his runs with authority while Najee is doing more side stepping... Just like last season, he needs to start just hitting the hole or being more physically gifted won't mean a damn thing

    Unfortunately, this article here highlights why JPJ has not gotten a greater degree of snaps just yet. I do hope that changes at some point though as Porter Jr has shown to be the better player than Wallace. Week Three is going to be even less desirable as DeVante Adams will be a problem; health provided of course.

    !!!


    Good question!!


    That is what I want to know! For that matter, if Patrick Peterson is not going to be used in the slot, why not have King II in?! Is Elijah Riley holding him off of the GameDay Roster?! If not him, who could it be?! Only major reason as to why he hasn't been activated yet.

    Apparently, remembering what you actually wrote is hard, at least for you. You wrote that the entire team looks like dog****, not just Tomlin and Pickett. You went on to criticize Pickett and Tomlin, but you went after the entire team first.

    There is nothing wrong with my reading skills, but there is quite a bit wrong with your writing.

    You wrote that you were fooled until the team looked terrible in the first two games.

    Keep trying to twist your way out of your own words. I'll just be here chuckling.

    When someone smugly, falsely claims I messed up and I discover they were the ones who made a mistake, as is the case here, I do find that amusing. If you are going to theorize about my late nights and getting off, I would prefer that you keep those thoughts to yourself. Thank you.
