    I could see that. Yeah; 3/13/19 will be a turning point. But maybe not in the way this thread has originally presented it though. Time will tell.
    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

    Iím anxious to see if losing our 2 best players makes us better.

    We missed the playoffs last year without Bell.

    I donít have a good feeling about it but thatís why we play the games.

    Hopefully we get back to real preseason football and play our starters for a series in the first game.

    Yeah, but it would only take one injury for us to roast Tomlin for playing starters in a meaningless game.

    Folks here complain all the time about us using a first round pick on Bud Dupree. Well, New Orleans used TWO first round picks to obtain Marcus Davenport, and his rookie stat line appears to be very Dupree-like so far (22 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 2 passes defensed, and 1 forced fumble in 13 games played). For their sake, they better hope that they chose the right hand to go "all in" on.
    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.

    Well said ... one of the best things about the Steelers management is they rarely panic. I think that will also be the case this year.

    Dupree has had a number of years..
    Davenport had one...

    You can’t compare.

    You can certainly compare Davenport's rookie season to Dupree's rookie season. And those two seasons are awfully similar.

    We don't care about the Saints
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.
