    ďIím so tired of LeíVeon," DeCastro told reporters (h/t ESPN's Jeremy Fowler ([url]https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/1038909446146203649[/url])) after Sunday's game. "Iím so tired of it. Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    I agree. We need to hit like that again in the next draft.
    From the 2010-2018 season, Mike Tomlin has only won 3 playoff games. And two of those wins were against back up Quarterbacks. Our history has been defined by what we do in the post season; not the regular season.

    I still think the Steelers created the LB and AB monsters they became, but not because of loose coaching style. It was because the Steelers (Roethlisberger, Tomlin, Arians, Fichtner) made the decision to make LB and AB such a huge focus of the offense. NE rarely has players accounting for more than about 10-15% of the offense. This has the effect of reducing the reliance on a few guys, but also improves 'teamness' by involving others. There will always be the temptation to play the 'money' guys, but game plans need to become more balanced player-wise. The big question is whether the Steelers can be as successful with that formula.

    Interesting example Tiproast shared of Brady being told to stop throwing to Deon Branch so much in practice just as they were building great chemistry. As a result Brady never became overdependent on him.

    Im not buying it. Yes, Roethlisberger's forces the ball to Brown and that has caused a lot of turnovers but outside of that, I'm not so sure. This team has had a discipline problem.

    It falls on Tomlin's shoulders. I equally blame the Rooneys for letting this fire burn outta control for so long.
    Tomlin: Let's unleash hell and "mop the floor" with the competition.
