    The Steelers averaged nearly 24 pts/gm last season. Plenty to win games. Fix the defense in Rd 1.

  3. Does an OL make the QB or the QB make the OL?

    .............Of Manning’s 18 sacks last year, only five were long sacks. (Our definition of a long sack is one that took 3.2 seconds or more.) Two of those were only that long because Manning took...

    Not down on the signing at all. Just surprising some of the stats don't sync with his stature. A big, fast WR should be able to get decent YAC.

    Was actually disappointed to learn DHB's YAC was a measly 4.3, ranking him way down on the list of WR with more than 10 rec last season.
    Then I was surprised to see that Fitzgerald actually had a...

    I am not as convinced as many are that the Steelers will draft a WR in the 1st, even if the 'big' names are still there.

    I know it's a passing league, but it seems with the LeBlount signing the...

    It's become more pervasive than ever. Used to be local towns and cities giving Big Manufacturing tax abatements, breaks, etc. They did this for the promise of high paying jobs and payroll taxes.

    Honestly, the situation shouldn't surprise anyone if you follow the Steelers. It is an infrequent occurrence for the Steelers to re-up on a rookie WR contract.

    The offense was already improving since the second half of the season. They should be focused exclusively on defense.

    You are both correct. BR's air yards/att was his lowest in the last 5 yrs (3.5) ranking him 31st in the league. The pace of the game increased but the passes shortened significantly. It ended up...

    According to one source: DHB 9.4% drop rate, AB 4.2% , DHB 45% target catch rate, AB 66% target catch rate. Interesting that in 2012 DHB drop rate was 50% LOWER than 2013, and in 2011 DHB = AB drop...

    Maybe it's just me, but I think they can't go wrong with Fuller as the pick either. What he might lack in skills, he has outstanding smarts according to some reports. Knowing where to be, when is...

    Good call, some would say you got yourself the bargain of the draft.

    That description was written about Richard Sherman.

    What the Steelers have lacked at RB for a long while is one that can make that first tackler miss. Bell may have that ability, just haven't seen it much to this point. Blount? ...I'm really not...

    having a top talent QB sit for 2-3 yrs only to get on the field before his rookie contract expires would be an enormously expensive risk.

    To your point, as one coach said, a pass can only result in 3 things and 2 of them are bad.

    I agree.....that's like focusing on someone's ACT scores after he's been working for a decade..... like, who cares. Both players have been nicked and dinged to make it irrelevant.

    never underestimate the power of non-monetary reasons for a player to make a move.....

    would have liked to have kept Cotch, but I think they got his equal in free agency.

    Watching this, maybe not the speed of Sanders, but 10x the hands:

    Seems this is a one-for-one swap with Cotch.
