    If we go 9-7-1 assume we make the playoffs but lose in our first game. We get a mid-round draft pick in a year without much top QB talent, so we pass on a 1st round franchise QB. Ben either plays another year or Rudolph takes over.

    Or we go 5-11-1, miss the playoffs and have a top 10 pick.

    Which you do you prefer?

    top 10 pick easy. Something has to change....


    "With the first pick of the draft Steelers select Jarvis Burns!"

    hybrid linebacker / safety/ kicker

    We took Devin bush with the 10th pick. Be careful what you wish for.

    That’s a good point. Top ten pick isn’t a guarantee

    Rather have a shot at a playoff game, anything can happen and win.

    not sure why everyone assumes that if we chose a QB in the first 10 in any draft that they are going to be a franchise QB.

    JMO but if you want real change, it'll take more than draft picks and player changes. Not getting to the detail there. In the mean time, I want my team to win each and every game they play, period. Call it old fashion or the American way, don't cheat, don't quit, and give it all you got. Let the chips fall where they fall. Don't get offended but only losers want their team to lose. There, I said it.

    I just don't think anything is going to change, because Tomlin is not going anywhere, and Rooney will never fire him...

    I just don't think win can win anything with this guy as a HC...He is just not any good!

    At this point he’s not the only one to blame. Lack of talent is a big one

    Problem is that it seems the team is chasing a superstar to fix the system instead of designing the system, so that if you do get a superstar it make it easier to run.

    Shazier went down and they've been chasing a speedy ILB to cover the middle and it didn't work even when he was playing his best!

    Yes, they allowed the D-line to go after the passer and that was a big help.

    5-11-1 might have a chance at a QB then.

    Pickett may be on the table at a top 5 pick.

    Only took 19 years to get a franchise qb after our other franchise qb.
