    We have to play the games, but we're only playing for 2nd in the division. The Browns have already been crowned

    Be sure to remind Browns' fans that Winter Is Coming. No games are played in the springtime.
    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.

    Mike Tomlin: We can’t do this with hostages; we need volunteers
    By Charean Williams | Mar 25, 2019, 6:43 PM EDT

    The Steelers traded Antonio Brown, and they lost Le'Veon Bell in free agency. Neither divorce was amicable.

    Whether the Steelers are “better off” is yet to be determined, but at least one fact is undeniable: The two playmakers contributed a combined 2,409 touches for 19,322 yards and 116 touchdowns in their years in Pittsburgh.

    “I think it has been highly chronicled, and I think it has been too chronicled,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Monday, via Mark Kaboly of TheAthletic.com. “Some things have been said that may or may not have been true. All I know is neither one of those guys are members of our team anymore.

    “Relationships run their course, and the fact that neither one of them are here speaks to that.”

    Tomlin said “there’s too much talk” about the players’ departures but understands winning football games is the only way to end that.

    On March 10, the Steelers agreed to send Brown to the Raiders for third- and fifth-round picks. That seems hardly enough for one of the best players in football as the Pro Bowl receiver contributed 11,207 receiving yards and 74 touchdowns in his nine seasons in Pittsburgh.

    But all good things must end, and after last season, Brown was ready for a new employer, and the Steelers were ready to be rid of the drama.

    “We can’t do this with hostages, man. We need volunteers,” Tomlin said. “We need good players, good guys who want to be here and if guys can’t check those boxes, it’s probably best for all parties involved to go our separate ways.”

    Brown complained often and loudly in the offseason about a lack of respect from the Steelers. Tomlin was asked about the belief that he treated Brown differently, which led to at least part of the fissure.

    “I don’t know in what ways you are referring, but certainly I treat people fairly,” Tomlin said. “I don’t aspire to treat everybody exactly the same. That’s just the reality of how I function.”

    Most teams go all in when their Hall of Fame QB is a couple years from retirement.

    This team loses all pros and their best coach (Munchek).
    Like the Saints went into “ all in mode” when they went and got Devenport in last year’s draft. I’m waiting to see what we do in the draft before I make my official proclamation for the season.
    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.

    if we don't get everything we want in the draft we may very well sign another post-June 1 free agent or two...
