    Dude seriously it seems like all these guys at the TRib have been lining up to take a dump on all the local teams. I mean I get it the news is slow, jobs are in jeopardy you need clicks but they have been bloviating like never before lately. I feel bad for not feeling bad about the Pens and Steelers, I stopped feeling bad about the Bucs in like 98 or so everything after the early 90's was just hoping the finished over .500.

    Not concerned regarding the negative Nancy talk Blast. Not because the points are valid but to expect this group to not improve as much is silly. Nevermind Big Ben either.


    Having a "Thermonuclear Option" is far more important in today's NFL than ever before. Pittsburgh finally has one after losing Martavis. Unlike Martavis though, this one is a FREAK.

    I can not believe Switzer is the one giving updates on Ben.

    He probably thinks being Ben's close friend will keep him on the team.

    The WR group is the least of my worries for the Steelers, JuJu will have a bounce back season, Washington and Johnson showed up last season even with bad QB play.

    Everything is reliant on bens health.

    tuitt needs to stay healthy and can’t lose watt or mink.

    all that stays in tact and we can be a contender

    I think our receiving + tight end core is very very... Ben friendly

    Maybe he's talking about when Kaboly wrote about Ben's throwing session Switzer was quoted in the article.

    I have no concerns over the WR room. The questions should abound regarding who is throwing them the ball. And I don't have qualms about that either. I believe BigBen comes back with a force.

    Hey Blast Furnace.

    This is how I see it. I am not that concerned about the WR crew from a talent standpoint. However, they must also stay healthy. Last year, for the most part, they were not able to get on the field together due to “minor” injuries. Now, I am concerned from Ben’s standpoint. Ben had a major injury, season ending. With his setback, it also set back the young receivers as they had minimal opportunities to work with and build chemistry with Ben.

    JuJu knows Ben. Washington has one year with him and Johnson and Claypool zero time. That is a concern. Now, with no Spring workouts that is also a chemistry building concern. The crew of JuJu, Washington, Johnson and even Claypool (I do realize that he has not taken a snap yet) are all very, very good as I have stated numerous times.

    They each have a unique skill-set. Now add in McDonald and Ebron and I say, Watch Out! Also, throw in Samuels coming from out of the backfield as he is probably our best pass-catching RB and he is also very, very good. I also like Whyte, with his speed coming out of the backfield. Dump it off to him, give him a seam and I see flashbacks of “Fast” Willie Parker. I would also like to see what Whyte can do with kick-off and punt returns if the opportunities present themselves. I do not know if he has trustworthy hands for those assignments. No, my biggest concern is Ben and how he holds up and him building chemistry with all of our “Pass Catchers”.
