This why I can't understand Tomlin.
He sucks. 0 TDs on the season from a #1 WR l
Can't catch anything going away from him. Canada or Pickett or both don't care for him.
It's hard to believe they can't get him more involved. It's a waste.
Hard to believe they felt the need to pay him that big contract
He better send Ben a Christmas card... because Ben force feeding him got him that fat contract
He's getting paid, that's the important thing
'Cause he can't hold on to the ball when they do throw it to him?
Throw to DJ. Watch ball bounce off his hands for an INT. He’s just not a number one WR.
Sure he gets open. But his hands are questionable at best.
That's part of it, but the routes..for what they are worth get little separation. Plus how many times after catching g the ball has he run run back instead of forward. It's total bs on not only him, but the scheme. Plenty of blame to throw around.
Pickett likes he receivers to have size. Johnson is a shifty midget. If you are not on the same page it won’t end well. Basically Johnson needs a HOF QB and 30 targets a game to get 102 yards and 1 TD
All I can say is....go back ,and look at the old post about people wanting to sign Him.
It's the whole reason I wanted to wait...., but NO . LoL.
It's not because I thought He sucked....., but....
All Qbs see things differently. Everyone that's watched football knows this.
Hell AB played with 6 different Qbs on the Steelers, and never caught a td by any Qb besides Ben, and only had a 100 yards one time without Ben.....but most laughed when I brought this up.
All I wanted was the wait ,and see approach.
Yeah but lobbying to people on a message board has no impact on what the Steelers do.
That is kinda crazy...eye opening.
Agreed, but how come they didn't think about it. Hell AB should have told them all they needed to know.
It’s not just DJ. It feels like Muth is down the priority list as well.
I feel the issue is as much scheme and too much repetition. For all we know, teams are daring Pickett to throw to DJ and Pickett knows this. There's simply not enough crossing patterns and in routes in the play selection for DJ to really be utilized. Canada seems to want his QB's to be one-read guys and if that read isn't there get rid of it underneath; it was very much how Ben played last season and Mitch at the beginning of the year. I think we all want Kenny to just let it loose, but it looks very similar to Ben and Mitch; therefore, I look at Canada here. And this mindset by Canada is really hurting DJ atm. DJ also doesn't help his cause by dropping the ball or running 5 yards backwards and costing the team a first down.
Muth had eight catches in the game.
Even the Bengals are commenting on it. From the article linked in the OP about them knowing that we run the same plays over and over -
"He's a great receiver. He really didn't get too many targets," Bengals cornerback Eli Apple said. "It kind of turned into a [Pickens] game, and Freiermuth too. We just wanted to disguise stuff more in the coverages and in the back end and try to confuse him."
I mean it's like beating a dead horse. Canada and his game plan sucks. It has all season.
catch and dance johnson.
At least he drops less passes
So what is the definition of #1 WR
Johnson has been a disappointment but the whole friggen offense has as well.
You all can argue about his contract it was a bargain as far as wide receivers go.
Dan Moore needs to be a back up to our 1st round pick in 2023. Dotson is on the fence.
Canada better be shown the door after the season. Enough of the Happy Trickster and his 10 play sheet. He is a horrible play caller. I feel Pickett is handcuffed to the calls due to his rookie status. Ben said the same thing last season he just worked with the calls given to him until he would go rouge and throw the dumb #hit out and play his own game. He got away with it being who he is. Pickett I believe doesn't have that luxury
Hire a competent offensive coordinator and have him bring in his own staff and have Tomlin stay away.
Pickett will not develop properly under this joke Canada.
He needs to get himself more involved
If he gets open and catches the ball he will be more involved
