  1. Steelers have a lot of camp battles on the Oline. Lucky they get an extra preseason game with the HOF game. I think fans are most interested in watching Kendrick Green at OC. At least he is practicing with the first team. I have no doubt in his athletic ability. It is the line calls I worry about.
  2. Hopkins would owe the Cards $20M if he retired now but perhaps he could still live comfortably.
  3. When you throw most of your passes within 3 yards of the LOS, you are almost totally relying on the WR for YAC.
  4. I think the WR have to not be under the impression that they need to be looking up field to run before they catch the ball. I think the offense called for that and it lead to more drops.
  5. I do not think you can get in trouble for over reporting
  6. According to the article I posted, they need to list an injury if it effects his ability to play football. Tomlin has been very light about reporting injuries ( Bell's groin pull in 2017 as one example). But I think it would be hard for the NFL to 2nd guess a judgement call at the time.
  7. I am not sure DD could/did pass a physical. The Steelers were not hard up on cash to be A-holes and have not been so in the past. But we will see. The article below answers a lot of questions. https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2021/6/29/22553209/is-there-a-cost-to-be-paid-when-teams-overlook-injuries-pittsburgh-steelers-david-decastro-rumors
  8. It sounds like DD needed more surgery on the ankle and was considering retirement. Steelers just pushed it along.
  9. The oline appears to be weaker in pass protection and stronger in run blocking. To me, this is setting it up for Ben's retirement. when Rudolph or whomever steps in, they will have a strong running game to lean on. Just like Ben did when he come in. Is a strong running game needed in todays NFL? Can't hurt but the QB needs to be able to take advantage of the play action.
  10. Turner is hurt all the time. Can't count on him. If he is insurance for DD, fine. But if you get Turner and trade DD, you had better have a backup ready to go.
  11. https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/31559643/long-pittsburgh-steelers-broadcaster-tunch-ilkin-retiring-fight-als
  12. https://www.behindthesteelcurtain.com/2021/6/1/22461945/steelers-2021-offense-in-focus-matt-canada-using-the-run-to-set-up-the-pass-nfl-news-update I will be excited to see what he can do
  13. I'll wait for the pro-day. I think he could run a 4.8. Kelley can and does run in his games. I am more interested in his passing. He will not be a top 10 pick in 2021 but neither was Big Ben in 2004
  14. For those of you that saw Ben's 1st 2 years or his college games, this is so reminiscent
