    Yeah, he just had an unsuccessful tryout with the Ravens. Must have lost some quickness after the knee.

    I get the value that he provides the team right now. Mason needs somebody to throw to and Moncrief might be the 3rd best healthy WR at the moment. But when James Washington comes back, I think you...

    I'm sure some of that was also the difference between running with the first team line in games, as opposed to the second and third string lines in the preseason.

    I'm absolutely happy about the win. The Steelers were beat up and playing with their third string QB. And Tomlin has an abysmal record on the West Coast.

    However unlikely, this win kept the...

    Hodges was fine. I couldn't tell on the throw to JuJu whether it was intentionally underthrown or not. Great poise and confidence. With all that said, I think Rudolph starts again when healthy, and I...

    At the end of the game, at one point it looked like Haden and Watt were both dinged up, with Tuitt out as well. It was close to a preseason squad and they still got the job done.

    I liked his style and kind of liked using him as a closer in that game. He was a nice upgrade to the depth at the RB position.

    Yeah, on the road, with a UDFA rookie QB, and a 21-0 halftime lead, the conservative approach was the way to go. I was fine with it. Much better chance of a pick or a sack/fumble than pushing the...

    Dupree has been solid and Watt is a legit star. Bud Dupree will never be a Lloyd, Porter or Harrison but he has been a big part of the success of the defense this year.

    The one thing I'll give him credit for on punt returns is that he's faked out the gunners about 3 times already this season, leading to a touch back. It's one thing that he does well.

    Otherwise,...

    Many people have biases one way or another, and own them. On the other hand, you make sanctimonious posts while pretending to be unbiased. It gets old.

    Interestingly, you didn't share that same opinion regarding Dick Lebeau. You complained about his defense through 2 SB wins. You defer to ownership's judgment only when it comports with your own.
