  1. Pre-Camp 53

    Switzer, Rogers, Washington, and the rookie (if he dresses) will all play STs. The other guys in camp are really not worth mentioning IMO.

    I'll play; changes in bold. QB: Ben, Rudolph, Dobbs? -- I'll be disappointed if Mason does not earn #2. I believe he will be given every opportunity to earn it. I think Dobbs might be traded or given early release to catch on with another team. I think Hodges is PS.RB: Connor, Samuels, SnellFB: NixWR: JuJu, Washington, Moncreif, Johnson, Switz, Rogers -- Just a hunch that I think they'll keep both Switzer and Rogers as proven guys.TE: McDonald, Gimble, FA -- I don't know about Gentry. I think he will be PS to start the year if they can find someone's cast off. T: Villy, Fieler, Chick, BannerG: Foster, Decastro, Finney, HawkinsC: Pouncey25DE: Heyward, Tuitt, Alualu, Buggs -- I think you meant Alualu right?NT: Hargrave, McCullersOLB: TJ, Dupree, Ola, Chicki, Smith -- If Sutton Smith makes the squad he will be a ST starter, I believe.ILB: William, Bush, Barron, MatakevichCB: Haden, Nelson, Hilton, Layne, Burns -- Really want to cut Burns, but not seeing how yet.S: Davis, Edmunds, Dangerfield, Allen, Locke25 K: BoswellP: BerryLS: Canaday
  3. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    1, I will just say that by looking at Bush's tape versus good teams like ND, Penn St., OSU, etc., he makes very few individual plays, is frequently caught out of position, is easily blocked, and is generally a non-factor. 2, 4 players on that D, including Bush, were drafted in 2019, and looks like it could be 3-4 more in 2020. 3, I understand the schemes were different. I just don't know if Bush will be a good NFL ILB. I hope he plays more hybrid SS. He does have the speed for it. I just do not see him squaring up to tackle a RB head on, or being able to fight through the garbage to get to a ball carrier. My basic point is Shaz and Bush are more different than you indicated.

    Except Shaz made a lot of plays in college; Bush not so much.

    True. But then there are games like they had against Carolina, and you just think, "Why can't they play like that all the time?" Except for certain games where the Steelers play like crap overall, most of the the time they lose relatively close games by turning the ball over and committing stupid penalties. Many of those games, Brown will be like 10 for 120 and a TD or two. If JuJu gets less than 100 and no TDs, and the rest of the receivers get their usual numbers, then it will be all AB all day. It won't matter if they lost because the D failed or Boz missed a kick. If the Steelers are winning, there still might be AB talk -- probably will -- but overall less of an issue. My hope is that AB has really crappy numbers in Oakland. That will calm some of the noise.

    If the Steelers win, it won't be an issue. If they start out 1-2, 1-3, we're going to hear about missing AB all season.

    It's the same almost every season if you think about it. If Boz wasn't so great in 2017, 13-3 could have been 9-6 or worse.
  8. How do you guys/gals feel about the draft?

    The Bush pick has grown on me, but I'm still in prove it to me mode. There were a lot of guys I wanted the Steelers to draft who went in the 2nd round, so I am hoping the opportunity cost for getting Bush ends up being worth it. As for Johnson, there are two other guys who I am going to watch who were drafted after him: Josh Oliver and Jace Sternberger. Obviously, I thought and still think TE was the bigger need than WR at this spot. Layne is just a guy in my opinion. He has the tools, I guess, but as I mentioned with the Bush pick, there were a lot of guys who went off the board who were better prospects. I don't know anything about Snell. The tape I've seen on Gentry is not good. He doesn't really fight for the ball in traffic, and it seems every time he catches the ball he is down on first contact. He's got good size, but he needs a lot more weight on him, IMO. As for the rest, who knows? They're competing for STs and the PS. Overall, I was underwhelmed by the draft. If Bush turns into a superstar, then it will have been a good one. We'll see in a few years.

    Troy filled a lot of holes on those defenses.
  10. I'm interested in the kicking and punting. Are they really going to have a serious competition? Also, while it seems that they've given Bud Dupree the OLB position opposite TJ Watt, I'm curious to see how many reps with the 1's other guys will get.
  11. 2019 Steelers offseason news

    He's obviously a ST guy this season -- at best. As the saying goes tho, the more you can do. I wish him well. Unlike #1 pick Bush, this guy made a lot of splash plays in college. And yes I know that his competition is not comparable. Still, Roethlisberger came from the MAC.

    That's hilarious!

    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.
  14. Bostic released

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

    Where's the ignore button. This has gone on too long.
