    Before Tuitt was injured, that was definitely right. He was playing 50% or less. I haven't seen a snap count, but it seemed like Hargrave and Heyward were getting the bulk of the snaps against the...

    So far, life after Ben feels kind of like the 90s Steelers, but with a weaker running game. A team built on defense. I think most of the 90s Steelers teams had a better offense than what we've seen...

    I'll fully admit, I hated the decision before the ball was snapped, but I'm obviously glad it worked out!

    I get the rationale - the defense was gassed - but I had no faith in the offense there at...

    I'd like to bring back both, but I suspect it will be very hard to do so. If the defense keeps playing as well as it is, their value will likely be further inflated in the market. If I had to pick...

    From what I recall, Ray Sherman had a decent track record as a WR coach, but a subpar track record as an offensive coordinator. With Drake dying unexpectedly during training camp, I don't think there...

    Well said and I agree completely. I liked the signing at the time, too. Given the comp pick being in play, the Steelers had no choice but to release him.

    Completely ridiculous. The Steelers have almost no cap space, have cap issues next year, and have no draft capital. Bell doesn't look particularly explosive, and his best years are behind him. Hard...

    [QUOTE=steelerkeylargo;779337]

    That's the cap hit. About $3 million is prorated signing bonuses, and another $800k is Burns' roster bonus. So there is little cap savings from moving them. Sanders...

    He's been exceptional. Four fumble recoveries, 2 INTs and a TD in just 6 games is pretty impressive. I loved the move to go get him and it is already paying dividends. Watt, Bush and Fitzpatrick can...

    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.

    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...

    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.
