    Why don't we trade all our starters for draft picks next year? Then we can tank for 2019 and draft QB#1. Then with all the picks we can draft a bunch of rookies. Then we can suck for a few decades like the Browns. See? I can come up with stupid ideas too.
  2. Bostic released

    I wanted him cut immediately after that play. I think he was benched tho.
  3. Patrick Peterson

    Where's the ignore button. This has gone on too long.
  4. The Curious Case of OLB Bud Dupree

    Uh, this is not what you meant to say.

    So do these guys: The team released the following players: punter Matt Wile, running backs Jarvion Franklin, James Summers and Fitzgerald Toussaint, wide receivers Trey Griffey, Quadree Henderson and Tevin Jones, tight ends Bucky Hodges, Pharoah McKever and Christian Scotland-Williamson, offensive linemen Larson Graham, Patrick Morris, Oni Omoile, R.J. Prince, Jake Rodgers and Chris Schleuger, cornerbacks Brian Allen, Dashaun Phillips, Malik Reaves and Jamar Summers, linebackers Keion Adams, Matt Galambos and Farrington Huguenin, and defensive linemen Parker Cothren, Joshua Frazier, Greg Gilmore, Lavon Hooks, Casey Sayles and Kendal Vickers. https://www.steelers.com/news/steelers-reduce-roster-to-53

    This is a very good post. People need to relax about bubble guys getting cut. There are MAYBE 5-6 total roster spots available on this or any NFL team. Very seldom do you see a guy like Willie Parker or James Harrison go from bubble guy to solid roster spot. Yes, it happens, but less often than you think. Adams was a 7th round pick and a bubble guy. He showed promise, but he also got hurt. The Steelers drafted three LBs this year, and only one is making the roster for sure. Sutton and Gilbert have a chance, obviously, but by no means are they guaranteed. Anyone think Devlin Hodges beating out Brogan Roback means anything? How about the signing of Johnny Holton? As we've mentioned plenty of times, Bud Dupree is going to be the starting LOLB for 2019, and the primary backup at this point is Anthony Chickillo. We can hope that Ola what's his name or one of the rookies impresses enough to get reps and playing time, but the reality is that they won't unless someone gets hurt. Which is exactly how James Harrison finally made the roster after being cut three times by the Steelers and once by the Ravens.

    Oh, I missed where Baltimore drafted TEs, what with them trading up to get Lamar Jackson. Okay, Jets and Cards then.

    My take is the TE from Minn wants too much money to go to NE. If Minn trades him, it will probably be to Baltimore or the Jets.
  9. Shane Ray

    I'm going to puke when Chase Winovich starts for the Pats and gets 2.5 sacks on Sunday Night Football.

    I am rooting for Ola as much as anyone. The Steelers passed on several Edge guys in the 3rd to WR and CB instead. That says something. However, as an UDFA he needs to be on the field competing and cannot afford to spend any more time on IR. He will be competing with Sutton Smith in camp this year for reps on D, and he'd better be able to play STs.

    I agree as well. Ben called it a confidence issue, but I just think it was not fully knowing the playbook and second guessing. Maybe that is confidence. I just know the kid was awesome in college, and I expect a huge jump for him this year. Switzer too, btw. The dude was signed a week before the regular season. He played pretty well overall, but after a year with Ben, he should be much more in sync.

    Did you read about Chicago Bears' kicking tryout competition? They had several guys (I want to say 10) kick it from 43 yards out. Only two made it. You want to talk about a pressure situation? The Bears' kicker, whoever it ends up being, is going to be under a microscope all pre-season and into the first few weeks. I think Boswell was hurt last year, and it played into his mindset. My hope is he will be 100% healthy this year. The Steelers brought in a UDFA as well as McCrane to compete.

    I removed him from the original list from the link, since he was listed under LILB. I'm sure there are a few other adjustments needed.
  14. I'd like to watch a few college games in 2019 before I start thinking about players for the Steelers. If the Steelers don't create more TOs on D with tighter coverage and better pass rush, then I'm going to want Edge and CB more than ever. I felt TE was a bigger need this last draft, so we'll have to see how Gentry pans out. My expectations are low.

    Depending on what site you look at, the potential final roster will include some mix of the following. This (from https://www.ourlads.com/nfldepthcharts/depthchart/PIT) shows all the rookie draft picks in 19 in green. I've removed a bunch of camp bodies, but there could be a couple of FA surprises. I think one factor will be how many WRs versus CBs the Steelers keep. Another will be how many LBs they keep. Iit looks to me like it will come down to Gray, Gentry, Smith, and Gilbert as to who goes to the practice squad. OFFENSE LWR 13 Washington, James 11 Moncrief, Donte RWR 19 Smith-Schuster, JuJu WR 17 Rogers, Eli 10 Switzer, Ryan T/Oak 00 Johnson, Diontae LT 78 VILLANUEVA, ALEJANDRO 76 Okorafor, Chukwuma 00 Gray, Derwin LG 73 FOSTER, RAMON C 53 Pouncey, Maurkice 67 Finney, BJ RG 66 DeCastro, David RT 71 Feiler, Matt TE 89 McDonald, Vance T/SF 85 Grimble, Xavier 00 Gentry, Zach QB 7 ROETHLISBERGER, BEN 5 Dobbs, Joshua 2 Rudolph, Mason RB 30 Conner, James 17/3 38 Samuels, Jaylen 00 Snell Jr., Benny 19/4 FB 45 Nix, Roosevelt SF15 DEFENSE LDE 97 HEYWARD, CAMERON 00 Buggs, Isaiah NT 79 Hargrave, Javon 93 McCullers, Daniel RDE 91 Tuitt, Stephon 94 ALUALU, TYSON LOLB 48 Dupree, Bud 49 Spillane, Robert 99 Adams, Keion LILB 00 Barron, Mark 00 Gilbert III, Ulysees RILB 00 Bush Jr., Devin 98 Williams, Vince 44 Matakevich, Tyler 00 Smith, Sutton 19/6 ROLB 90 Watt, TJ 56 Chickillo, Anthony LCB 23 HADEN, JOE 00 Layne, Justin 28 Hilton, Mike FS 21 Davis, Sean 27 Allen, Marcus SS 34 Edmunds, Terrell 37 Dangerfield, Jordan RCB 22 Nelson, Steven 25 Burns, Artie 20 Sutton, Cameron SPECIAL TEAMS P 4 Berry, Jordan PK 9 Boswell, Chris LS 57 Canaday, Kameron
