    So.. If (1) we accept Captains argument that we should loosely base our cap structure on other successful teams and (2) it's true that no other recent SB winner has devoted 20% of the cap to a QB (I...

    Sure, but if the argument is we shouldn't pay skill players over a certain cap percentage because other teams haven't been able to win that way,we need to apply the same logic to the QB position.

    I think it would be interesting to see what recent SB winners paid their QBs in terms of cap percentage.

    I think Ben's new deal puts him at 20% of the cap.

    For comparison, Brady made $15M last...

    This.

    On the field.

    For rookies: how Bush progresses (DJ too).

    For sophomores: is Washington better, or is it all talk.

    Finally, how does Ben look. Clearly the most important thing....

    I think the 2 best times with franchise QBs are
    1) on rookie deals
    2) at the end of long deals where inflation of the cap makes their deal cheaper than when they signed.

    We did all in 1, but...

    And getting a new QB is probably the only way to make it even (and we probably shouldn't do that)

    Conners issue seems to be more about low successful run rate.

    Maybe that's why we threw to many times last year.

    I think the issues I'd be worried about were his large drop in YPC and lack of long runs.

    The Steelers ran him a ton and decline comes for all players.

    At worst, I think he'll be a great...

    Especially because they got blown out earlier in the season with around 5 turnovers.

    They probably thought it was going to be easy and decided not to try. That's how guys end up becoming pro...

    I agree with you.

    There's lots to say about AB, but he's an exceptional role runner.

    I guess maybe they're implying 2 things:
    1) Maybe Brown goes to improvisation too soon and it causes Ben to have to hold on to the ball too long? or
    2) Maybe Ben holds onto the ball too long and...

    I'll believe it when they do it in the regular season.

    We've heard these rumblings before.

    Also, have they actually said that they'll use Samuels and Conner at the same time? Or is that just...

    This. I don't think we beat NE enough for it to be a rivalry.

    Although we are probably the team they play the most outside of their division.

    Better team mate at the very least.

    And Ward was a great player too.

    But if you can't compare their stats directly, you can compare them to their peers. AB was a 4x all pro, Ward made that...

    If I had to choose one player in their prime for one game, I'd take AB without thinking about it. I think he's probably the best WR we've ever had (and we've had lots of good ones).

    There's lots...

    I think Steelers fans just have unrealistic expectations because we've been spoiled with success for the last three decades or so.

    Many on the Trib board talked about Cowher just like...

    I'm hoping these articles end up being true instead of just being puff pieces.

    Looking forward to camp / preseason this year. Seems like there are lots of interesting questions at WR and on D.

    That's a pretty lazy article.

    They say that stats aren't everything, but don't present any stats at all.

    I think Lloyd / Greene were more menacing, but they played in a time when you were...

    I like Davis too and think he's got a reasonable shot on having a good year.

    But, I do think it's doubtful we get something done with him now. I agree with STH70 that Haden and Hargrave are likely...

    I disagree with 2 out of 3.

    I would remove "did not run the ball enough" and "too many pass attempts" (the same thing as Ruthless points out).

    And I would swap in "terrible FG %age" and "too...
