    That means our defense actually intercepted the ball twice on day 1 of OTAs. I hope THAT is an indication of the regular season.
    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.

    Alex K at the Depot charts picks in camp.

    Last year we had the most ever.

    Turned out it was more about QB play than DB play.

    FWIW, my guess is that lots of those picks came from the other 2 QBs as well. They have also shown a penchant for throwing picks in the pre-season.

    My overall point was more that we probably shouldn't read too much into results from football in shorts vs. Ben and our QBs throw lots of picks.

    I think Ben's pick rate was about league average last year. Although we'd maybe hope for better from a QB in the discussion for elite status, he's a high risk player. Sometimes that gives great results, and other times we get stupid picks in the red zone.

    He's not perfect, but he's certainly the best we've had since TB and maybe the best we've ever had.

    I think the timing of the picks is more important than the rate.

    I think if you have a higher rate, you'll throw more picks at bad times (not that there's ever a good time to turn the ball over).

    Yep, we've heard this chorus before. I'll get excited about the DBs getting turnovers when I see it in the games that count.

    That we don’t have to worry about Ben. His play in the road is something to worry about.
