    Holy crap time to give this guy some love. Enough with all the Bosa talk(media) time to put TJ in the DPOY running. This kid just plays lights out every game and I like how him and Heyward played together last night.

    Hope he doesn't turn out to as fragile as his brother.

    That's a good point.

    Clearly JJ has had a host of injury problems the last four years but prior to that he didn't have such issues and played in 16 games five years in a row.

    TJ has only missed one game in two and a half seasons but always seems to be a little dinged up.

    One of the few things we disagree with. I have no problem with any of our starters being out there last night that late. We needed that win and we needed to do whatever it took to make sure we got it.....yeah I just said that and we were playing the Dolphins. I get what you are saying but we are already down tuitt we needed all hands on deck last night. Unreal that it had to be that way omg.

    Watt needed to be in the last couple plays? Ola can’t handle more than 3 snaps? Yeah we’ll have to disagree :shrug:

    This isn't the first time, or the second, or the third...
    Tomlin's biggest flaw is not learning from his mistakes.

    He is a monster. DPOY in the making, perhaps not this year but he is getting better all the time. He is eligible for a new contract or extension this off season and I hope they pay him, he has earned it.

    Unfortunately the only way to get attention is to win and we haven’t been.

    Watt took over late in that game. I certainly wouldn't have pulled him.

    I love how Watt attacks the football every chance he gets. The one play where he was in Fitz's face and it looked like a basketball rejection. Watt put his hand on the football before it left Fitz's hand.

    Me and other members liked the pick back in 2017. Loved the pick since the conclusion of his Rookie Season. I knew he was going to be great. I just did not expect his overall abilities to be so well rounded.


    In my eyes, he has become a top flight EDGE Defender in the league. Dare I say he is arguably the most versatile EDGE Defender in the NFL today. Yes, Myles Garrett, Von Miller and Khalil Mack will get me sacks. That said, give me the EDGE player who can not only rush the passer and defend the run but also defend the pass.



    Pass defense skills for pass rushers are becoming more and more of a premium for NFL Teams. Given how the game has transitioned from Formation Matchups to Personnel ones, pass rushers, like all positions, need to keep up with the times. Not saying players like Myles will become obsolete any time soon but players like him who's game revolves around nothing but rushing the QB will become less difficult to find in comparion to players like T.J. Watt.



    All the more reason that, in time, T.J. Watt will be worth every penny when his time to get his contract renewed comes. Multi role players with the athletic and football acumen like him do not grow on trees. So, when you do have said players, it is best to keep them around.

    His last play, there was under a minute left and the Steelers were up 13. Remember, he came into the game nursing an injury and the Steelers have a short week coming up. It was almost as if Tomlin felt he had to double down after leaving Conner out there to get hurt.

    Watt is the closest talent to Jack Ham that I have ever seen in a Steelers uniform.

    I think it may be safe to say that Watt is actually helping Dupree more than Butler ever did. Bud has added some moves to his pass rush and I have a strong feeling Watt is the reason why....

    I must have missed some plays cause what I saw last year wasn't good. One move, run outside to the right 20 yards behind the QB.
