    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Kellen Winslow Jr's 2005 motorcycle accident in a parking lot was the stupidest and worst thing I ever saw.

    ... and I didn’t say they have won a bunch of SB’s. I said they have been in SB’s with a chance to win them.

    McNair, Cam, Kap have all been one drive away from winning a SB and McNair and Kap were inside the 20 on the last drive.

    Russell Wilson tho..

    Folks will say he is an “efficient passer” but he operates in a pass run option offense and his threat to run plays a huge part in his success as a QB.

    I think like Northern said earlier. Folks use hindsight when talking about run first QB’s. Lamar Jackson is considered a run first QB based on half of a season last year but if he becomes the same QB he was in college and reaches or wins a SB folks will call him a mobile QB.

    Unless it’s the wildcat any QB who can also run well will also have some level of passing in their arsenal. That alone is enough to get to a SB if your team is good and the ball bounces your way.

    Haha... I will admit the stocking shelves example was kind of funny.

    Le'Veon Bell is not happy with his critics

    by John Breech

    It's been more than 18 months since the last time Le'Veon Bell played in an an NFL game, and during that time away, the Jets running back stayed pretty busy.

    From releasing a rap album to jet skiing to playing basketball, it always seemed like Bell was doing something to stay busy, well, except for playing football. During his time off, it didn't seem like Bell was spending very time on the practice field, which led plenty of people on social media to question his desire to play football.

    After listening to those questions for nearly 18 months, Bell finally fired back at his critics over the weekend. The Jets running back took to Instagram on Sunday and went on a tirade.

    "Hey, real s--t bro. I'm tired of social media s--t," Bell said. "I'm tired everybody telling me, 'Oh, Le'Veon, you not focused. You only wanna make music. You wanna play basketball. You do everything besides play football,' and let me tell you all something."

    At that point, Bell's rant went into overdrive. First, the Jets running back pointed out that employees at other jobs aren't expected to focus on their work 100 percent of the time.

    "Everybody talking, I know you've got a favorite person, a favorite athlete, your mom, your dad, whatever," Bell said. "Somebody who works at Target, do you think when they work from 9 to 5, they go home and all they doing is worrying about putting f--king s--t on the shelves? They trying to worry about what serial numbers are coming up? No."

    Bell also pointed out that plenty of other famous people like to spend their free time doing things that don't necessarily have to do with their day job.

    "You think [LeBron James] is waking up, he ain't have no Taco Tuesdays?" Bell said. "'Bron don't have no Taco Tuesdays, you all think he's hooping all day? You think Beyoncé is waking up singing all day? She don't go to work, she don't act? She don't do nothing else with her kids? You all think she's waking up singing?"

    If Bell's worried about critics now, it could be a long season for him in New York. After sitting out for more than 18 months, there's no guarantee that he's going to be able to replicate his Steelers production in New York, and if Bell's numbers go down this year, there's a good chance his social media feeds are going to be filled with critics who will tell him that he's only struggling because he wasn't focused enough on football during his time off.

    Awww ... poor Le'Veon ... are those big, bad social media critics bothering you? Poor, misunderstood millionaire.

    Maybe it can be arranged for you to trade places with that Target stocker, so you don't have to keep enduring such hurtful comments.

When I think of a running QB, I tend to think of a thin, quick, nifty guy making juke moves in the open field then sliding or running out of bounds. That's not Cam at all. Most of his runs are short-yardage or goalline runs where he must absorb punishment in order to obtain his 58 career rushing TD's. Dude is built like a brick...uh...port-o-potty, but that level of physical punishment is catching up to him. He wasn't close to the same guy late last season as he was early last season. Carolina has RB's who can run into the end zone in short yardage situations...you don't need your franchise QB to do that for you anymore. Cam needs to make a change just to maintain his health to prolong his career in general. It's like when Ben altered his game to throw more quick short passes rather than waiting until the last second for a big play while absorbing a huge hit. Even big dudes like Ben and Cam need to protect themselves if they want to play this game for any significant length of time.
    Only thing I will add is Cam was having a great season until TJ Watt hit him in the shoulder with his helmet while Cam was in the pocket throwing. He was never the same after that hit.

    Really.....here so you think Wilson is a mediocre passer?

    My quote

    Great QBs are great because they are great PASSERS period.
    The ability to run while nice, and can come in handy, is not relevant to the above question.

    When using the expression “run-first” I mean a QB who’s “primary” elite skill is their running ability. Sure he can pass, but he is not above average by the NFL standard.

    QBs that are outstanding runners but mediocre passers are “fools gold”, as they all tend to be able to win, but don’t tend to win championships.

    I think Russell Wilson was viewed as a mediocre passer before he was drafted.

    Northern summed it up perfectly.

    When a mobile QB fails he is a running QB. When they succeed people switch up and give them credit for their ability to pass efficiently.
