  1. Draft Prospects 2019

    I think they see Finney as Fosters replacement. I do think we need to start developing Pouncey and Gilbert replacements, but I still think our needs at CB, ILB, and OLB are far bigger.
  2. Trades you want this year

    We have the cap space he would only require $5.8/m this year. We have $8.1/m, I believe. What would we have to give up though? I think our Def is more than one piece away from a Super Bowl. If it weren’t I would be all in.
  3. 3 Round Mock

    Love the first two rounds for the Steelers. No need for a 3rd rd RB though.
  4. I’ll take Bell dribbling Kirkpatrick.
  5. Trades you want this year

    Not sure I understand the want for Buccahnan we have 3 players who can play the $LB role.
  6. Trades you want this year

    I haven’t watched H.Reddick or the Cards for that matter. Where did they have him playing? Was he out of position or scheme or just not that good? I thought that right after he was drafted they tried him at OLB. It was kinda like when the Steelers tried to force Timmons into an OLB role.
  7. Yeah I was wondering the same thing. If you can land a top QB I think you have to do it.
  8. Trades you want this year

    I have to imagine Butler is gone by year end. I think Tomlin keeps his job, but needs someone to take the fall. I think Porter needs to go, but he and Tomlin seem to be bum buddies. I’ll be interested to see what happens with Fichtner. Maybe he needs more time, but he is clearly a step back. He may not make some of the bone head calls Haley made, but he is far worse overall .
  9. Draft Prospects 2019

    Koron Crump. Dudes undersized, but a beast. Maybe an OLB to ILB convert to replace Shazier.
  10. Defensive Personnel via Colbert

    I disagree with them drafting Cowher type players. I think they are just drafting athletes and hoping they can be made into football players. Al Davis type moves. I also think they have had very specific player in mind in the last few drafts. They make it painfully obvious only to have them taken a few picks before. They seem to panic after that. I would like to hope they have a plan B, but it certainly doesn’t seem like it. I think there is a major lack of talent, coaching, and discipline. For Tomlin being such a great DC coming in it certainly doesn’t show. I agree that picking toward the back end of the draft has been a big problem for us too. I don’t thinking sitting tight is the best strategy. With how draft picks are being overvalued these days I think it would be wise to try to leverage that and get creative to get what we need or want.
  11. Bell contract 2018

    I think a team who is one piece away from a Super Bowl this year could offer more than a third for him. I don’t think anyone offer multiple firsts for him though.
  12. How Important is AB?

    I think there’s always going to be a little “does Ben make Brown better or does Brown make Ben better”. However, I think Brown is a game changer. There is a good reason Brown was in the running for MVP last year. Im not sure what the issue with chemistry is so far this year. Are Ben and Brown just off from not playing much in preseason or is it the new offense. i think they come around and get on the same page. I think our Offense is much better with Brown. I don’t think JuJu is as good without him drawing coverage. I don’t think Bell is as good as people make him out to be. I think our Oline makes him better.
  13. Bell contract 2018

    He and his agent are ruining his career. I can see him waiting till the last moment to sign and Tomlin not playing him. All this really makes me want to try and trade him now for anything more than a 3rd.
  14. new punter?

Seems like there are better options out there.
