    His blocking has to improve dramatically.

    Agreed. I do like B.Love - my other RB is Benny Snell; He's a solid all-around runner, particularly between the tackles. One simply does not play for Kentucky and get THOSE kinds of stats in the SEC..

    He'll be in the rotation and get some reps but JC will get the lions share. A vet may be brought in or a mid rounder like Mike Weber will be added and get some reps to keep everyone fresh. As correctly mentioned by "Oh wowJ" JS will need to block better he had some ole' blocks his rookie year in pass pro.

    I really hope they don't run Conner into the ground as an every down back.
    I think Samuels can play every and any where on O.
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    Can he play cen... nevermind.
    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.

    I hear Samuels has been working out with AB. Seems that his chest has been increasing in circumference.

    HahahahahahHa.. heaven help us!
    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.

    Steelers RB Jaylen Samuels said he focused on speed this offseason, which he says will help "be more decisive in and out of my cuts as a pure runner." Did he get faster? "I believe I got faster," he said. "I can get in and out of my cuts a little bit better."

    He was good as a rook. Has room to improve (pass pro) and we should see improvement between year 1 n year 2. He is going to have a decent role in the O so if he up's his game it will help. Looking forward to seeing him at Latrobe.
