Can I get in on the league?
Some people will never let a coach out of the doghouse. Haley had a vision but not the players to execute it the first year. In the second half of last year it really started to gel.
Yes it is Plex. We spent the 8th overall pick on Plex and we get Martavias with very comparable measurables at 118. That's great value!

Shawn you see the system and not just the pieces. Good post. I think if we can get a solid year out of the O-line we might have something special on offense.
He plays with too high of a pad level. He's a project. If he's available after the 2nd I would be OK but not before.
Thank you for moving away from the computer. The Steelers would have been DOA against that defense.
I think football is cyclic and the sledgehammer back will be in vogue again somewhere down the line. In the current passing league, stopping the pass first has become just as important as stopping...
Can't agree more ++++111111. Tomlin treats the players like men therefore he needs internal leadership to police and drive the team on the field.
I also wanted a SEA-DEN Superbowl. I will be rooting for Seattle for 3 reasons.
1) Their Defense is physical in a way that I want the Steelers defense to become. They play big boy Defense.
Gotta give you credit Shawn for taking the time to reevaluate. Too often these days everyone is so dogmatic / hardheaded not to be open to a different viewpoint. I too have accepted Nix but am open...
If we draft a safety or DB, they will ride the bench the first year because of the complexity of the job. We draft a NT and he starts day 1.
Sing it brother +1
There are 2 ways to fashion a dominant defense in this pass happy age of NFL football. Either you:
1) Have a suffocating secondary that denies or intercepts (very difficult given the NFL rule...
There are socioeconomic changes occurring in the Burgh that are changing the constitution of fans that go to the game.
Since the mills closed in the 70's and 80's the city had been fairly ...
+1 Pouncey does no good to us hurt. His ankles are all jacked up and now his knee is an issue. I am going to bet that Pouncy will not be back.
I completely agree! Our standard is the Super Bowl. Even with a completely healthy squad I don't think we had what it takes to win at a championship level this year. When you compare the 2013...
Lol....we will revisit this next year. Pouncy's wheels are all jacked up between ankles and now the knee. He's going to demand all-pro $$$ which we don't have and won't pay.
We really have to consider the possibility that we have a long term problem at the Center position. It's very difficult to judge OL performance because so much of a players success is based on those...
Dude, you just need to sleep it off. LOL
Everyone needs to consider the probability/possibility that those runs were used to set up downstream plays.
The first 2 runs were definitely done with a purpose. The Steelers went with the...
Had we gone into OT we would have been seriously hamstrung by our O-line situation and the absence of Bell. I believe we would have needed a defensive TO resulting in either a TD or FG position to...
Was it me or did our pass rush instantly get an upgrade when McClendon went down and Hood took over at NT? If it turns out that Hood is a good NT that will be "the straw that breaks the camels back"...
I'll start believing in the 2013 Steelers after a win on Thursday. Going into B-more and winning on Thursday night will be special! Notice I said will.
This skill has to be worth a couple more 1st round picks in any potential trade!
The boys at Benstonium are on fire!
