Thread: When is the right time to focus on player development/evaluation more than winning?

    When is the right time to focus on player development/evaluation more than winning?

    Never? Only when you're mathematically eliminated from the post-season? Or just realistically eliminated?

    Now?


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

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    Now! This season is lost so set up for success in the future.
    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!

    At this point, the Steelers would have to go 5-2 in the next seven games just to get back to .500. Does anyone really see that happening with this team?

    I agree with Oviedo.

    Not a chance that happens until we are mathematically eliminated...that is loser mentality.

    We will play the players that give us the best chance of winning every week...at least for now.

    11-5 here we come...

    Realistically, now.

    But, the Steelers will have to consider it after two or three more loses.
    Even if Bill Belichick was getting an atomic wedgie, his face would look exactly the same.

    I think the official line will be never. But haven't they already been doing this to some extent? Players have been shuffled in and out of the lineup and in various positions in the lineup week to week.

    If they haven't done it to this point, why would they do this now?

    Really? Great "pep band" mentality but totally unrealistic. This team is not going to magically fix the flaws we have seen through 7 games. That will only happen for the future if we develop the future now and not give time away to players who won't be wearing the uniform in the future.

    Winning is the point of every single NFL regular season game. That doesn't mean that some of these other things can't happen as well to a measure, but the eye is always on winning. Every time.
