    Venting

    Season is over, but who knows maybe we win 9 in a row and finish 11-5
    Questions i have to ask
    -where are the back shoulder throws we see other QB's throw?
    -where are the RB screen plays?
    -why don't we ever run off tackle?
    -why don't we ever run any counters?
    -why don't we see any bunch formations?
    -why don't we run any quick slants?
    -when was the last time you saw Ben throw an out to a WR?
    -why don't we see any seam routes ran by Heath?
    -why is Sanders the only WR that goes deep?
    -why can't Ben ever hit a receiver in stride w/o them having to make a diving catch?
    -why does Ben refuse to throw to his check down?
    -why does our O-line continuously get hurt?
    -why is Paulson still on this team?
    -why don't we see Moye running a deep route and out jumping a DB?
    -why are Jones and Dwyer returning kicks?
    -why was Mesko still on this team after 6 games?
    -why is Ziggy Hood still allowed to sniff the field?(see McFadden TD run)
    -why is Ryan Clark still a starter?
    -why is Jarvis Jones struggling?
    -why is Woodley making so much $$$$$$?
    I have given up for the first time in as long as i can remember.
    It seems like Steeler management has also....
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    I miss the bunch formations

    we had a lot of success with it and it goes away

    that's a good list

    answer to all questions..................COACHING
    2017 Mock

    1. T.J Watt, OLB/DE, Wisconsin - will be a huge mistake if available and we pass

    3. Josh Jones, S, N.C. State

    3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

    5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

    6. Barry Sanders, RB, Oklahoma State (How can you go wrong with that name, however the sample size is so small that his dad may be better even in his 50's)

    7. Alec Torgersen, QB, Pennsylvania

    Amazing. I didn't come across one question, where I didn't ask myself, "Yeah... why?" Maybe except a minor disagreement on the Moye one. Moye is a local/camp legend for some reason. To me, he's an angular guy, who played OK in preseason and happened to make a TD grab, who people seem to vastly overrate. I don't get it.

    Did Moyer go to Penn State? If so... there is your answer.

    Sorry Pittpete I have no answers to these questions but I applaud the effort. This is a season to vent.

    It's the answer to "why does our O-line continuously get hurt?" I'm really the most interested in, I can sort of make up reasonable-sounding answers to the others.

    I have a theory it's because their skill level is pretty low. Low skill set >> poor mechanics >> injury.

    Does that sound reasonable?


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
