Im asking you! Since you think u know the truth
Yeah I want a player that looks hungry for the game and not for that BLT
Don't even start. I'm so tired of this crap argument.
When they start paying me to make those decisions, I will let you know .
Frankly we've been missing that for at least 3 years.
So you want to fire coaches, just to fire coaches .
So they re-signed Chickillo to a 2 year 8 million contract , this scrub missed the tackle on the Penny TD. They should've cut him, and kept Skipper, he's a lot cheaper too.
No need to tie the game with that much time left on the clock.
The second we went down by 9, the game was kinda over. The only reason it will get overlooked is due to the fumble recovery and quick TD.
You don't go for 2 until you have to . I hate living in the era of Madden rules.
And Tomlin sure as hell isn't John Madden.
They also kept Switzer over Eli Rogers. At least the latter is a better receiver.
What lineup changes would everyone make for next week? Depending on the injury results I guess.
Moncrief, Chickillo and Switzer would be regulated to the bench.
Probably due to Switzer being the punt returner, but Eli offers more in the passing game.
Hard to disagree with any of this. I think Moncrief can recover, but he shouldn’t be getting a hat until his finger heals.
Yep it's time to see if Ola can be the #3 OLB, Moncrief needs to be benched until his fingers heal, bring back Eli Rogers bye Switzer.
If Vince is going to be out for some games, maybe Gilbert will get some snaps.
Wait, the O line said they're impressed Mason knew the playbook? He's the back up QB, isn't it his job to know the playbook? So, they're impressed he takes his job seriously? This team is not smart at all.
For me, it is very simple. You cannot lose 2 of the best offensive weapons in the league over the last couple of years and expect the offense to keep scoring as if they were still on the team.
They have NO, repeat NO gamebreakers. I like Ju-Ju but if I am being realistic, he lived off of AB. He is still going to be good but I am not sure he will be AB good. Too early to tell at this point but he clearly cannot get open like he did last year.
I am not sure what is going on with Washington. He was lights out in preseason and now he is not playing much and then they never throw him the ball.
Moncrief is a total waste of a uniform. Release him and get someone in there that can actually catch or at least go with a crew of young guys who want to play. Two weeks in a row now and he has only showed how he cannot catch. If his finger is messed up, then why play him?
The defense is plain horrible. No wait, beyond horrible. They have one or two that seem to actually know that you have to tackle the guy in the other colored jersey. Never seen a defense that cannot tackle like this one. Just to many missed tackles and that is only the start of it. The DB's are worthless again. At least Watt is playing for the linebackers but other than him there are few bright spots, Plenty of dim bulbs though.
On to the coaching staff. Do we actually have one? Butler is way beyond competent. This just shows what an empty suit Tomlin is. He has no clue. Gonna be a looooooong year.
As for Ben, well, father time is knocking and this year could be it for him if this injury lasts. I would not throw him under the bus yet but sooner or later, it will be time to move on to the Mason era.
Mason? I thought he played really well. I'm rooting for him. Not so much over Ben but I like the kid. Hey I live very near where he went to HS, I refereed him in HS and my wife's hairdresser is good friends with his parents. She texted him when Mason came in and he was watching the game with his parents at their house so they were not at the game.
Clearly, Mason is the future QB. How soon that happens is anyone's guess. People have to remember that he will have some growing pains but if the Steelers lose next week, it looks like an early draft pick will be in order next year and maybe they can start a complete rebuilding.
Big Dan goes in for one play and gets a penalty for running over the long snapper on a missed FG that turns into a TD. How can a guy in his 4th or 5 th year who only see'e the field to maybe block a field goal not know the rules.
Overall I think there is some talent on the defense but there is still confusion in the backfield, we make excuses like this guy is new or this guy is only in his second year etc. I see other teams have injuries and still field a more cohesive unit then we do.
Rudolph is playing better at this point. At least until Ben is 100%.
Steelers are gonna get a whoopin' next week at Frisco.
What makes it worse for me is that all the Talking heads will talk abt nothing but Pats, Dallas, Balt , and KC makes for a long week IMO
I remember Steve Mariucci saying Rudolph was the most impressive QB at the board during last year's draft.
Yup sucks bad
