Tomlin says Najee is part of the problem, too

    MT throwing his rookie under the bus is click bait?

    He says that Harris Has an Oline that sucks and Najee can't find a hole to run through but then finds one and there's a holding call but let's blame Najee for that too.

    :frustrated:

    How can anyone even defend MT's stupid statements anymore?:rolleyes:

    Well Harris did miss some holes, I doubt Najee will be offended by the criticism.

    Our Oline has completely sucked two straight games. Tons of holding calls, especially on running plays. Ben has 2.5 seconds at best to get rid of the ball.

    I'm sure Najee will use it for motivation. At least I hope so, but everyone is to blame on offense especially receivers that can't get open.

    I like Najee. I was really hard on him before the draft. Some of the flaws in his game that I was worried about prior to him being drafted, have been flaws that are affecting the run game.

    He will get better. He is a rookie.

    Because of Tomlin's bell cow theory where you just need another back for the occasional breather. Running back by committee would never work. I'm surprised Ballage hasn't tried to force his release by now.

    RBs don't need preseason to develop instincts. Holes aren't going to be like Alabama.

    It’s click bait. The title is misleading since that’s not actually what was said.

    The articled, um, talked about his ability to, uh....yeah....run the ball.

    He missed a wide open hole right in front of him. Hope he's not gun shy from getting snowed under so many times.

    Nonsense. You may not like what he's saying or what the video shows, but you can't hide under the table and call it clickbait.

    i was talking about why they need to play in preseason. it's all relative. i don't think he's that type of guy that would get gun shy. i would like to see some more runs with a FB though and even with ballage some. pounding a defense gets results as well. how we run the ball needs to get mixed up some. :cool:

    Taylor spent the first half of last season struggling because he was having trouble recognizing which lanes to take.

    Najee through 3 games: 40 carries, 123 yds, 0 TD

    Conner through 3 games: 35 carries, 122 yds, 2 TD

    Similar stat line. What makes cards 3-0 and steelers getting embarrassed?

    Kyler has 1,005 yds passing with 7 TDs and 3 rushing TDs. Our boy Ben has 3 TDs and 3 INTs on 801 yards passing, 10 yards scrambling for his life, 0 TDs running and 2 fumbles.

    Glad to see this steelers team is committing to being a better running team. We are now solidly in last place as the worst running team in the league at 53 yards per game.

    I gotta give them credit as I didn't think the running game could be any worse than last year. I was wrong...

    One is allowed to translate/interpret/summarize The SteelersDepot headline did the same thing.

    JFC, now you sound like Formerscribe.
