  1. Yeah, I read that as well and was genuinely confused
  2. But Vince Williams has been in the defense longer and has experience making the calls as well. Shouldn't he be able to step in and take over that role?
  3. I agree. Don't get me wrong, Bush adds a layer of sideline to sideline speed that cannot be replaced. But this idea that he's the most irreplaceable player on the defense doesn't make sense to me at all. It is concerning that UG3 hasn't received a helmet yet but he certainly is the most qualified, from an athletic standpoint, to replace that speed. This team has a chance to really contend this year so I wouldn't be opposed to making a deal for another ILB. Considering our upcoming FA's, the championship window definitely gets a little smaller next year.
  4. SteelersDepot is as good as it gets regarding straight forward analysis and team building. However, they rarely (from what I've seen) break down the offensive and defensive concepts the steelers like to run (I'm thinking something similar to what smart football.com was). Does a website like this, or something similar, exist?
  5. The one I'm in plays once every three days. If you are new to the game, it will definitely be rough because you're right, the users are really good (typically). That said, if you're into the football X's and O's, it's a great route to go. In our league, for example, you can't play outside of your zone, you have to pick playbook's according to your scheme, and each coach's schemes comes with particular drawbacks and perks.
  6. Franchise is pretty terrible on its own. However, if you go through some madden forums and find a sim league (32 user league), it's really fun. Not sure how realistic that time commitment is for you but just something to consider.
  7. I understand that perspective but it seems like a bit of a luxury for a team that has such a small window for a championship. With that said, I don't think our team has any major holes right now so I'm ok with BPA. But if it's close, I'd prefer a RB (Conner is guaranteed to be hurt and probably leave next year and I'm not a benny snell guy) or offensive line, which will be a MAJOR need sooner rather than later.
  8. Yeah, I'm slightly confused about the idea that we need a WR. Juju is an established starter/potential upper echelon receiver, James Washington made big strides last year, and Diontae Johnson looks like he's going to be really good. Unless we plan on letting Juju go next year (and I doubt the front office has any strong opinion on this right now), I just don't see how a WR sees the field this year or anytime soon.
  9. Didn't Harrison say he was going to retire?
  10. Unless Mariota is willing to sign for 2 million, Steelers just don't have the cap to sign him
  11. The pressure our front 4 is getting on the QB has been the engine to make this defense go. They need to franchise or transition tag him and go from there. Giving him a long term contract worth 14 million a season just isn't warranted at this point. Give it another year and then reassess
  12. Mason has zero confidence in what he's seeing right now, it's really bad. You're currently the 6th seed in the AFC, you need to play the better QB right now and that's duck. I hate when teams show an inability to be flexible and adapt to what's currently happening. If they go back to Mason next week, they are trusting their pre-draft evaluation over what is happening on the field and that's unacceptable given where the team is in the standings.
  13. Dupree has been good this year but I can't help but feel like resigning him would be a massive mistake
  14. Completely agree. It was obvious right after the snap the RB was going to be covered. Yet, he keeps looking at him hoping something magically changes. This is what I'm talking about, he looks so lost post-snap, which is a massive massive problem
