Thread: Kovacevic: Will Steelers Pass Up Another Chance?

The short passing game doesn't take advantage of these things. Heck, taking shots down the field gives the chance for late hits to the QB!
    The problem with this team is who do you take the shots with? The next tough catch that Sanders makes on a deep ball with be the first. Brown can get deep, but it is tougher with a small WR.

    I've been a Haley supporter. And if last week was an aberration, so be it. But the system that is predicated on efficiency & consistency where the QB gets rid of the ball quickly (minimizing hits on him) has to actually show it. Otherwise, what is the point?

    I think Wheaton has that potential. I think they all do to an extent. Remember also, it is not ALL about bombs over the top of the defense. It is deep outs, seam routes, and general passes in that 15-20 yard area. That is the bulk of what I consider downfield throws.

    Our TE and FB situation is not the coach's chice right now. The good TE we could have starting right now will be a rookie wearing a Bengals uniform tonite.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I would have, though I'm very happy with Jarvis, I'm bummed that another AFCN team got Eifert- especially one that already has a top line TE.

    I thought I sprinkled enough sarcasm into that statement. Sorry, my bad.

    I would have (and probably should have) seen the sarcasm except for the fact that there are old-school Steeler fans that really feel that way - that the team should stubbornly continue to pound and pound away.

    If it was December already we could unleash hell. Oooops....wait....that was last December that we unleashed it.
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity
