  1. I love what Minkah has added to this team

    Fitzpatrick is a stud. I had him rated very highly in that draft. Edmunds, on the other hand, I had as a 4th or 5th rounder. I was livid when they drafted him. He looks the part, but he sure isn't. His brother leaves a lot to be desired too. He had decent stats due to dumb luck, but you could see he had zero leg drive on some runs and his vision and COD were sorely lacking as well. He just looked clumsy. But that's what you get when your top 3 backs go down and you're rolling with PS scrubs. I didn't like the Fitzpatrick trade, and time will tell what the opportunity cost of the trade was. I didn't hate the trade either, but I did think it was rather dumb to give up a 1 and a 3, for him and some lesser picks (I forget the exact details of the trade right off hand). If that pick would've been a top 5 pick, and we would've lost out on a Nick Bosa or a stud QB, horrible trade. If it's mid-round, then it's a good trade. Now if Rudolph doesn't look like the guy, it is possible that Jacob Eason from Washington could slide and be within striking distance with that early-mid 2nd rounder and the 3rd comp, along with a very early 4 (if we got the Dolphin's 1 instead of the Titan's). Still have normal 4, no 5s, but have 6 & 7. 2-Steelers = Isaiah Simmons, LB/S (trade 2, 3 and 4 to move up into 1 if he slides to there and you're rolling with Rudolph/Ben at QB) 3-comp -traded for Simmons 4-fins? - traded for Simmons 4-Steelers = RB 6-Steelers = DL 7-Steelers = DL To the guy who thinks Laviska Shenault is a late rounder, think again. Walterfootball has him going to the Fins at #12 with our pick. That dude is a STUD when healthy. I watch every Colorado game I can. He's a beast with the ball in his hands. Then again, Jacob Eason is going #9 in that mock, as the #3 QB taken. Isaiah Simmons is going #20 in that mock, as a S. I wonder about him as a nickel backer, or a box safety on run downs......or a full time Linebacker in the Shazier mold. He's probably my favorite player in the draft off the top of my head. Eason is my favorite QB. If Walter is on to anything, there are going to be some stud WRs going in late 1. Tee Higgins at 31, Justin Jefferson at 28, etc. AJ Terrell, CB, would be a great pick in 2 IMO. Haden isn't getting any younger.
  2. If Tomlin were traded to Skins

    I watched the Oregon-Washington game today. Herbert's accuracy was horrible if he couldn't stand like a statue in the pocket. I like Jacob Eason myself. His little spin move to retreat when pressured is my main concern with him, but his arm is elite of elite, and his accuracy is good too. Washington got screwed on a missed call on 4th down at the end of the game. I haven't watched Ohio State much this year, but Chase Young looked like a buddy star. Isaiah Simmons from Clemson is another one I liked. Troy Dye is another one that I like.
  3. If Tomlin were traded to Skins

    Absolutely get rid of him. He's horrible. If they have to trade him to make themselves feel better about it than firing him, great.
  4. the order of disapproval

    So you're going to ignore the penalties and them turning into the Raiders? You're going to ignore Brown recording them in the locker room? The constant penalties for celebrating? He repeatedly drafted morons off the field who were also morons on the field, and he let the inmates run the asylum. That's on him. You might make an exception for Bell's pot and some other things, but a lot of that was conduct detrimental to the team, and he allowed it to blossom into a full blown nightmare, on and off the field. That's all on him.
  5. the order of disapproval

    Bell (smoking pot and not knowing he could get arrested for driving while high) along with suspensions. Brown, Porter (on the field, but as a coach, so same difference), there was drama with Harrison in the past, etc. It's been one big sh!t show after another with Tommy Boy's worthless butt as coach. Brown repeatedly = same difference as many. recording the locker room. His celebrating penalties ON the field. His running of the mouth. The list goes on and on. You let ONE loser get away with it it infects the entire team and you get penalties as if you're the Raiders! This really says it all: Jesse James on leaving behind the drama in the Steelers locker room:"Yeah, I'm glad to get away from it.
  6. the order of disapproval

    He's #1 based on more and more discipline problems with this team every year he's been here. HE is the problem. Period. Penalties on the field. Antics off the field (and in the locker room). The buck stops with HIM. Period. They need to can him. I'm almost hoping they lose out so they fire his worthless butt finally. But not having Ben, which is the only reason he has a win% above 1%, will be his get out of jail free card this season so it is irrelevant. They made sure there's nothing to cheer for this season IF it is a complete loss, since they already traded away the 1st rounder which could be top 5.

  8. 5up 5down 49ers

    Agreed. My tolerance for the NFL period has really waned in recent years. I have watched roughly the equivalent of 2 games this entire season. About 5 minutes of the Cheatriot game and nothing else of the Steelers. Some of a Panther's game (just for McCaffrey.....Newton makes that team almost unwatchable he's so bad now though). 2 Vikings games. Part of 2 Bears' games (5-10 minutes each). That's it. Yuck. The Brown and Bell drama the last couple seasons, along with 12 seasons of Tomlin's cheerleading buffoon antics has made the Steelers tough to stomach. If I hadn't been a fan for so long (almost 30 years), and like so many of the players still, I would've canned them a few years ago, and for sure after Villanueva was the only one with any class during the national anthem while Tommy Boy and the losers stayed in the tunnel. So I'll check them out again when it's convenient and free for me, next Monday night against the 0-3 Bungals where "someone's O has got to go!", and other times like that, but that's it. They no longer DESERVE my money and/or time. When the Rooney's pull their heads out of their butts and do what they need to WIN instead of make political statements, maybe they'll be worth it again. Until then, screw em. That last draft was a joke. The last offseason was. Last 2 offseasons. Taking a 4th round S in 1, a 5th round WR in 2, a potentially good QB in 3, and a bunch of junk and a RB/FB tweener, followed up by giving up a lot of cap space for a stumpy LB that they should've had filled 2 years ago instead of wasting the entire previous season (and could've stayed put and drafted plenty quality CBs), could've drafted more DBs or WRs in 2, then took a 5th round WR at 66 (could've had Pratt at that point at LB), etc, etc. That draft is a joke too. So they managed to lose the best OL coach there is, best RB, best WR (who Tomlin's lack of discipline let turn into complete morons and they let one of them walk for nothing), and drafted like crap for 2 years. Then you wonder why they're 0-3. But hey, we got a tanking season going, and so we'll trade away our 1st rounder now lol. Can't make this stuff up.
  9. 5up 5down 49ers

    Biggest up? I didn't waste money on the NFL Sunday Ticket this year. Watched about 1% of the Cheatriot Scum game. So I didn't waste my time or money on something not worth either.

  11. So It Begins... Steelers Visit the Patriots

    Rooney Rule = political statement. Tommy Boy being hired is the embodiment of it by the creators of it. I call him Tommy Boy because he's a buffoon, but I really should stop because it's an insult to the late-great Chris Farley. He was a crappy coach when in Minnesota. The D looked better under both Leslie Frazier AND Ted Cotrell, his successor and predecessor respectively. Absolutely worthless. He was the one guy mentioned as a possibility for the next HC of the Pittsburgh Steelers that I said oh hell no, anyone but HIM! Of course they hire him and he's exactly what I thought he was, but even more annoying. As Cowher's team left, he proved he couldn't coach and develop crap for talent. The roster was talented for most of his tenure and they won a SB in spite of him. Whisenhunt was ten times the coach he was, and if they were coaching the opposite teams during that SB, the Steelers would've won in a blowout, not barely squeaking one out. Whisenhunt's team wasn't nearly as talented, yet still almost won because Tomlin sucks.....if Harrison hadn't free-lanced for that pick-6 before half, they would've lost most likely even as it were. I think they would've won a few more SBs since then as well if they'd hired Whisenhunt, the competent coach who should've gotten the job. You guys can like it or not, agree or not, I really don't care. That is how I see it and that's NEVER going to change one tiny bit.
  12. So It Begins... Steelers Visit the Patriots

    I'm glad I didn't waste money on the NFL Sunday Ticket. This will be the first year in 27 years that I don't go to the bar or have the NFL Sunday Ticket for EVERY game. I'm sick of this garbage. Tomlin has to go. Screw that political statement that has squandered a decade of an elite QB and overall roster for a good portion of it too. This game was my litmus test. If they looked great and could still defy the odds and win in spite of Tommy Boy I might have re-upped. But nope, that garbage is not worth a penny.
  13. Steelers extend HC Mike Tomlin through 2021

    It isn't where I live as of last night. Didn't check today yet.
  14. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    I never presented anything as fact, and don't try to insinuate I did. I've been very clear that it was based on how I personally view and value these things. Those guys you mentioned played in a more run-heavy era. Length matters more in pass coverage. They also played when others were much shorter and smaller, slower and lighter as well. Rod Woodson at 6' 205 was a really big CB in his day. Now he's average size, with many being considerably bigger than him. Those guys you mentioned were also exceptions to the rule, not the norm. If Bush fails, his lack of length sure as hell didn't help his chances.
  15. Steelers extend HC Mike Tomlin through 2021

    Tomlin sucks. Ben has regressed. He used to be elite, but not anymore. Lost the best RB and WR in the NFL (good riddance, hopefully they both break their legs this year, or worse). The D is not what it used to be. With DirecTV not having CBS in this market this year, the games would also be blocked on NFL Sunday Ticket (the only reason I have DirecTV instead of Dish with their Hopper), so I cancelled it a few days ago for the first time in years. I'm wondering if it will even be on tv in bars now. Might be the first season I miss in almost 30 years if things go poorly with the tv. I might not be missing much. Not too impressed with any part of this team anymore. Ownership, coaching, nothing.
