  1. Training Camp 2019 news and discussion.

    is Hilton to CB what williams is to ILB ? ie, a blitzed that can't otherwise be counted on to play at a competent starter level ?

    dear mod: delete thread

    lets see how they get the angles set for this view. I am all for trying different ways to broadcast the games, less commercials would be a start though
  4. Vince Williams' time with Steelers over?

    bush ( standout thus far and RD1 pick better be as good or better) and Baron (already a proven vet in this league) are the starters if that makes sense.
  5. Vince Williams' time with Steelers over?

    could they trade VW though, he should have some trade value , fairly reliable and a decent player. It's not like trying to trade burns, heck they might get similar returns as they did with AB Ok, not a 3rd, but what about a 5th?
  6. Vince Williams' time with Steelers over?

    this bold part is a reason the team has failed for years IMO, a real fault in their regime and system . Will it end? Nope, not as long as all the same people are here (colbert etc). At least this offseason they helped the D or so it seems. I still wanted them to let dupree go and sign Houston, that would have me seeing the FO in a different light, but they still kept one of their draft picks instead. to Smiths defence, he has had injuries and more annoying (to some)is that the team kept dupree and chickillo. These players are proven though, so I would expect 1 of them to be here from last year anyways. Both though, makes it more difficult for smith to make the team. I was hoping smith would make the team, but instead the surprise will be skipper making the team. They better not cut Ola though, that is where the IR return comes into play if required (again) .
  7. Vince Williams' time with Steelers over?

    I never liked the idea of colbert signing him to such a deal, another colbert fail - last year again williams should be gone with the new talent here but once again, time for colbert o admit he was wrong last year, and that might not happen. He has burns to cut and now williams? Fort should be here, now williams

    for some reason I want bell to be less successful, possibly to show the importance of the OL and I didn't like how he went about business last year. If he could stay near 3ypc that would be good for me

    I doubt it, but good humour I guess it is. I still expect AB to put up numbers this year, it will be something most here will observe.
  10. Training Camp 2019 news and discussion.

    agree here , but this season could be make or break for burns if he is on the team. I didn't want burns here at all but being a colbert RD1 pick we have no choice especially since he has no trade value either
  11. Training Camp 2019 news and discussion.

    reports have been that burns has had a good camp, so I doubt he gets cut due to the politics with this team but wait and see. I am hoping Sutton is the next CB since Allen and Layne appeared to have failed. I don't want to watch anymore games where the other team throws at will vs a CB. If it's the CB's fault or the pass rush, it can't happen

    At least he appears to be making strides. I am up there with the critics, really gave up on him before last season, but there was a minor improvement last season and porter is gone now. I doubt it makes for major improvement , but if what you are saying progresses, dupree might be a legit starter this season. "potentials look the part" in preseason might be a tier below "having a good stat gamer vs a bad backup " in the regular season though. In his NCAA days, he defeated scrubs with his athleticism and if he does that vs future subway commercial producers in preseason , then the crow could be safe for now, but wait and see. He isn't the most popular here either as he has been another RD1 bust, but if he really does well this year, he might serve the crow you are stashing. Just to make sure, do you keep enough crow for the burns RD1 wasted pick as well? I have read that Sutton has made progress and from that I would expect him to be the back up CB.
  13. aren't you glad he's gone from the steelers? I thought he ran out of appeals etc? Is a grievance what follows for someone that runs out of appeals etc?
  14. Training Camp 2019 news and discussion.

    AB is getting about as much bandwidth here as the rest of the 2019 steelers I doubt his drama ends. Bell isn't playing in preseason, the team is already trying to preserve him. The 2 players the steelers let go/did away with, aren't playing preseason and might be creating a new rift with existing team. Glad they are gone.
  15. Training Camp 2019 news and discussion.

    Skipper and Ola are 2 players I wanted to make the team. Not only since dupree will be gone next year ( and might not be good this year), but for depth at OLB that is legit. Smith was another player too, but he has been injured and is on the outside and probably won't make the team. Watt and dupree have had injuries in the past, and there is no guarantee they won't have to battle injuries this season. I think a 3-4 D should have 3 quality OLB's but 4 would be better ( but usually costly) . This D currently has 1 (Watt who is on PUP) , a major weakness for the D.
