    Conner intimated that he doesn't expect his role to change much. Much....
    From the 2010-2018 season, (An 8 year period that the majority of Cowher's players & coaches had left) 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 postseason; not the regular season.

    My official proclamation: WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. SO WHY DELAY THE INEVITABLE?

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    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.

    The only way this is possible is for Conner or Samuels to run the Read Option. (Don't think it will happen)

    Our #1, #2 and maybe #3 WRs will be in new positions. #4 #5 and maybe #6 will also be chosen and need to be acclimated.
    The #1 TE is injury-prone. The #2 and maybe #3 TE will be new. A lot of work will be needed there.

    There's a lot of work to be done and decisions to be made for the WR and TE positions, which is huge considering how much we throw the ball. They're going to need all the reps they can possibly get during training camp.

    Now is not the time for new wrinkles, experiments with 2-back sets and the like. Just my opinion.

    It’s fine for a wrinkle at the goal line but I don’t see any reason why this would be used more often. It’s not like we drafted a TE who has speed up the seam.

    Oh wait!!!

    Kevin Colbert inches toward G.M. free agency

    Posted by Mike Florio on July 26, 2019

    The Steelers unquestionably have become excellent at finding talent. The man primarily responsible for doing so could be taking his talents elsewhere next year.

    G.M. Kevin Colbertís contract runs through the 2020 draft. As explained by Ed Bouchette of TheAthletic.com, Colbert didnít get an extension on the same day coach Mike Tomlin received his latest new deal. Bouchette adds that Colbert has told the team he prefers to go year to year.

    That approach gives both sides flexibility; the Steelers can move on with minimal financial cost, and Colbert can walk away for a better offer or a change of scenery.

    Itís hard to imagine either side wanting one. Colbert, who perhaps doesnít get the credit he deserves because heís quiet and understated, has done a great job for the Steelers. And Pittsburgh seems to be the perfect place for him.

    Unless, of course, for Steelers minority owner David Tepper is thinking about making Colbert an offer he canít refused in order to lure him to Charlotte.

    @jimwexell how did James Washington do today? Excited to see his progression throughout this season. #SteelersCamp

    James C Wexell Retweeted Black And Yellow Insider

    He looked great. Such an exciting pass/catcher, the way he gets up and rips it out of the air

    Cap, anything with the ******* four in it, I don't read. Not even when their post are put into someone's else post. Their trouble makers and beneath me.
    I'm not catering to their hate. Us adults can discuss football and can share different opinions and still be civil. The children can't and therefore must attack when people don't share their opinions.

    Love chatting with you Cap, Pitte, and the majority of the guys.
