  1. Getting Downright Offensive About the Steelers Defense

    I think our offense is partly to blame for the defense and has been for the last couple of years. It seems like the defense is on fire and the offense can never capitalize. That has to be pretty disheartening for the defense. Continuing to force punts and FG, even when tasked with short fields. Then having the offense come out and go three and out. I think the secondary needs to work on their communication, and it's been said a lot in here already but that's probably on the coaches. Bush is young and learning. Covering in the middle of the field is hard in the modern NFL, but he'll figure it out. I think we will see a defense firing on all cylinders by the end of the year. I just hope the offense can keep up.
  2. The STL Cardinals Thread - TINSTAAPP

    I was talking about both the upcoming Cubs series. I'd be happy splitting the 4 in Wrigley. It'd be awesome to sweep them out in our 3 gamer in Busch.

    Also, tonight's game is going to be rough. Hendricks KILLS us. He's got a 0.38 ERA against us this year.
  4. The STL Cardinals Thread - TINSTAAPP

    We need to not split with the Cubs. We need to win both series, I'd say. The Crew is red hot and if we split they might sneak in. Their schedule is cake...
  5. No, he was pretty raw coming out and he's limited to being an outside CB right now. Nelson and Haden are looking pretty legit right now, so there is no need rushing him in.
  6. He had a couple of really solid tackles. I didn't notice him much in coverage.
  7. Cowboys release DE Taco Charlton; claimed by Dolphins

    What's up with him? Is he bad? I liked him in college.
  8. Minkah Fitzpatrick

    I like the trade. I think we still have a good shot at 10 wins. The offense will get scaled back a bit, and that's probably a good thing. Fichtner is going to be under less pressure with Mason. Rudolph's youthful play fits with the younger skill position players better and Washington will benefit from the move. The defense was already pretty good, but not great. I think with a good cover guy in the slot and on the backend, they will be good enough to win some games for us. Remember, the defense was two flukes away from scoring two TDs Sunday. We couldn't cover the middle of the field, now we have tons of athletes that can cover the middle. Bush will improve, Barron probably gets more comfortable, Sutton and Nelson looked pretty good last week, plug in Minkah in the slot or back deep. We've got a very versatile defense that can do a lot. Apparently Minkah is a fiery competitor, that'll help. He's a smart football player too, that'll help with our overall defensive scheme. Plus he's dirt cheap for 3 more years.
  9. Game Day Thread Wk. 2 Steelers 0 - 1 vs. Seahawks 1 - 0

    Juju needs to stay watching tape of prime Anquan.
  10. Mason Rudolph Mega Thread - ALL RUDOLPH TALK HERE

    I'm hoping to see a good balanced offense with Rudolph at the helm. A lot of under center power runs and play actions. A lot of short timing routes out of the gun. A couple deep shots here and there. He's already got really good chemistry with Washington, so I could see an uptick in his targets. Mason might breathe some fresh air into this lifeless team. The defense will surprise some people if the offense could control the TOP.
  11. I don't think Ben did this to job the Steelers. You're delusional if you do. His UCL popped just like a pitcher. It's a flukey injury. I don't even like Ben but the notion that he and the team colluded to get one big payday and then retire is laughable.
  12. Mason Rudolph Mega Thread - ALL RUDOLPH TALK HERE

    It could be worse. I'd probably rather have Landry as the #2 this year rather than Hodges. Depends on if the FO wants to crap the year or not, but I'd trust Landry to come into a game cold or maybe win a game or two as a starter.
  13. Patriots sign WR Antonio Brown hours after his release by Raiders

    I gotcha, and I agree. I just don't think it's necessary to continue trotting out the same old tired jokes. If that's what you meant, why not just say it? It's darn near impossible to read sarcasm on the internet anymore, and the world we live in is pretty confusing, so hopefully you understand my mistake.
  14. Mason Rudolph Mega Thread - ALL RUDOLPH TALK HERE

    I don't think a ground and pound offense will work for us anymore. Our line is probably more talented than the one Ben inherited, but they aren't nearly as physical. Our line is best suited for a quick, up tempo, short pass and runs. We can run those power plays where we pull, but it seems like teams are selling out. That may have been because Ben couldn't move, so maybe Mason will be able to actually run play action?
  15. Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger done for season

    The offense looked a lot better with Rudolph honestly. I don't think mason is the long term answer, but it wouldn't surprise me if we still finished with a winning record.
