  1. Trade Brown for what?

    I know the drama is hard to deal with and especially the "quitting" on his teammates but I still want him in B&G. He is the best in the game and fair or not, I'll put up with a little more. He's just that good. His recent post gives me some hope (maybe foolishly) he's ready to reconcile. http://www.sportingnews.com/us/nfl/news/steelers-antonio-brown-twitter-message-fans-not-goodbye-nfl-trade-rumors-news-video/1362exeka5nxu1o5lfc2y0l6bu
  2. we are finished winning super bowls

    Good point about the relevant discussion. I've noticed that too. Strangely some of the best debates have come from these "Tomlin sucks" threads.

    I hear ya @FourThreeMafia, but look at these ridiculous threads. They are several pages long with literally hundreds of replies. We keep feeding him.
  4. Trade Brown for what?

    I think you are the most critical of Colbert. So that begs the question...What GM do you think has done a better job? I'm not saying their isn't one but I'm curious as to whom you think is drastically better.

    Interesting. Who were the top 5 drafting teams?
  6. even munchak is tired of this

    I agree with what you said. My prior post was pointing out that no other team is in the Pats league. I should have said have any of the other 30 (not Pats) been consistently better at coaching and drafting then the Steelers?
  7. even munchak is tired of this

    Ok, are there 30 other teams that are significantly and consistently better?
  8. even munchak is tired of this

    Yep. 2 SB appearances and 1 win under Tomlin. It seems like critics are contradicting each other. Tomlin can't win with all the talent he's had but Colbert is terrible at drafting. Which is it? FWIW: I too think they've underachieved and I too think there have been some terrible draft picks. But I don't think it's been drastically worse then every other team not named the Pats. No team and no coach is in the same ballpark.
  9. FA fits for the Steelers

    Z. Smith is a large Man. I think he's closer to a 3-4 DE then a OLB and is a good fit at 4-3 DE. But love him as a player.

    And teams reach on those thin positions causing more talented players to drop. I'm confident a "good" player will be there. Hopefully it's the right one and the FO makes the right decision.

    And get HUNDREDS of responses.
  12. Possible Trade Options for Brown

    The egos of grown men. Why is it so hard to say..."This is where I messed up. This is where you messed up. My bad. Let's move on". It is so frustratingly childish. I might be in the minority but I believe he stays. He can't be traded for a while and I'm hopeful cooler heads will prevail in the meantime. Just don't ask me to bet on it.

    I hear all of that and don't even disagree with some of it but I've yet to here why the Traditional won't work. You keep saying "Today's" game and old Defenses don't work. How long have the 4-3/Nickle/Dime been around? The Traditional 3-4 is the only one that doesn't translate? Why in "Today's" game won't it work? I've shown why it would. Please explain why it won't. Why is it better for a 300lb Man to run horizontally instead of a 250lb Man fill the Gap? And I'd consider The Chiefs, Pats, Chargers and maybe the Saints playing a more Traditional 3-4 but that's the thing...IT IS MORE flexible. Obviously it based on the opponents' personnel.

    Sarcasm noted. "Today's" 3-4 doesn't make it better. The fact that the NFL throws more makes the Traditional BETTER imo. If you differ, that's fine. Hargrave does not require a double team. Therefore leaving the OLBs or whomever doubled or the free blitzer occupied. There are what I would call traditional 3-4s left in the NFL. Meaning Fat guys in the middle eating up blockers. Some of which are still playing in the Post Season. New doesn't always mean better. Ask Coke.

    Right, he's good at "Today's" 3-4 NT. I just don't think that is an effective way to play Defense. I don't need my 300+lb NT running horizontally. That is what my LB (should) be for. If he isn't double teamed, I want him to be able to push the pocket. QBs/RBs will be the first to tell you penetration up the middle is the most problematic. If he is double teamed, I want my OLB (Watt) to win a 1-on-1. Also, this allows a free blitzer (Dupree/Williams...etc) with no one to block him unless a TE/RB stays back. Even with a free blitzer, that leaves 6 guys covering 5. If a TE/RB stays in that leaves 6 guys covering 4. Then you have your ILBs/SS covering the Flats and TEs. For these reasons, the 3-4 is NOT a FB and 3 TE Defense. It is the most flexible of all Defenses. Yep it's Old School but it more effective then a penetrating NT imo.
