    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...

    I know this sort of moderation is generally discouraged, but is it possible to say that Tomlin made the right decision regarding the clock at the end of the first half (I think he did, and it isn't...

    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.

    Tuitt is really...

    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.

    Not that Washington has done much, but this really hurts because it means that the Steelers are likely to keep Moncrief.

    Also, just throwing this out there. For as well as the Steelers usually...

    When you only have two QBs active and the starter has been literally and figuratively knocked out, you can't have the backup QB running the ball.
