    I know no one wants to hear this but it's tine to address running back in the first three rounds in the 2017 draft. Between health issues and drug issues Bell is having a hard time seeing the field....

    and you may be right. But the Raiders were built in a similar fashion. I suppose the difference is development. The Steelers have done a better job developing these athletes.

    I think Tomlin agrees with you. I don't. I've always preferred guys who are fundamentally strong over track stars. The Steelers of old were built using those kinds of players. With that said, I...

    I think there were mixed feelings from most fans. You basically had a large SS playing ILB in the NFL who was superbly gifted but also smallish and a bit raw for a first round ILB. I don't remember...

    Second hand smoke is not a credible excuse to any medical review officer worth his degree. There are cut off levels set on the quantitative labs to eliminate such issues.

    at least there is one poster here with some sense. Unfortunately, the NFL is punitive which doesn't treat addiction.

    This was the first thing written...When the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted linebacker Ryan Shazier with the 15th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, there was a lot of excitement. With Shazier’s speed and...

    I actually liked the way he played in coverage for us...on that we don't disagree. His potential to blow up this season is very high. I think this is the year. That's not the point. I'm talking...

    I stopped reading when he said Shazier was known for his ability to cover. Speed doesn't equate to coverage skills. He was never a great cover guy. Doesn't mean he can't gain those skills but he...

    That's because you are thinking with a rational mind not clouded by addiction. I've seen people lose everything, freedom, children, spouses, 6 figure jobs, even in late stage cirrhosis...and still...

    If you say so...opium, coca etc all great non drug provisions of the earth. Sorry, 5 positive drug screens, millions at stake, that's the definition of addiction.

    Due to denial a fundamental part of addiction...the addict is the last to know. I hope he has people in his life including his employer encouraging him to get help.

    what I'm hoping is that someone actually give him some treatment. Asking a drug addict to stay away from drugs without giving them tools is irresponsible.

    they do get it more right than wrong except when it comes to the secondary. Curious since Tomlin is a secondary man.

    big kid with a big arm...throwing to no bodies and behind a OL made of Swiss cheese. If he makes it to the Steelers I believe he is a better option than Jones.

    I like Mettenberger and find this move curious. He played reasonably well for a young guy in a bad situation. I would sign him in a heart beat.

    true. They owned the problem, got the right coach for the job then put high end picks on the OL. With that said, if you need 60% of your squad to be first and second rounders to succeed...you won't...
