Hello my fine Steeler fans. We're all happy to see our season kick-off tonight with the first pre-season game.
And I know we all pray for good health tonight for both teams. I have a yes or no question for our three top rookies for the season. Please give your thoughts.
1) RB La'veon Bell: 1,200 Yds Rushing with 10 + TD's......Yes or No ?
2) WR, Marcus Wheaton: 50 + catches for 700 + Yds, and 6 TD's...Yes or No ?
3) OLB Jarvis Jones: A) Breaks Jevon Kearse rookie sack record with 15 sacks ?
B) Has 9-12 Sacks this season ?
C) Has 6-8 sacks this season ?
My answers.....I will take 1-No. Dwyer and Redmon will each get enough carries to keep Bell from that goal, at least in his first season. 2-Yes! Wheaton was in my opinion easily the smartest, and best route runner I saw last season. He gets in and out of his breaks faster then anyone I have seen in a while, and he has soft hands. I think the opposing defenses will cover tighter on Brown, and even Sanders, and make the rookie have to beat them....and he will. 3-B. I wanna say Jones breaks the all time record, but I feel the stubborn Steelers may give the starting Nod, at least early on to Worilds. But, I feel Jones WILL make a Impact. Not just with Sacks but with TFL's and Batted down passes. I think he tops out though with 11 rookie sacks. But I HOPE I am wrong.
So good people, what say you all ?
