    I hope Switzer doesnt retire if we release him. I know he feels like he let his wife down but as long as he gets picked up by a team he is making more money than 90% of Americans.

    Ryan Switzer cools down Steelers minicamp with ice cream truck

    Jun 12, 2019

    PITTSBURGH -- After catching passes from Ben Roethlisberger during Pittsburgh Steelers minicamp, Ryan Switzer beat soft-serve coverage in the parking lot of the team facility.

    Switzer treated players and employees to Bruster's Ice Cream after Wednesday's practice. The Bruster's truck pulled up shortly after practice and quickly drew a crowd.

    Switzer said he's a big fan of Bruster's, an ice cream chain headquartered in Bridgewater, Pennsylvania, so he figured give the company some love.

    "Plus the guys like it," he said.

    Switzer has hired the truck for appearances multiple times since joining the team via trade from the Dallas Cowboys in August.

    Several players have said this year's Steelers are "team-oriented," and this gesture only helps.

    Switzer plays multiple roles for the Steelers, having caught 36 passes for 253 yards and one touchdown last season along with six rushes for 21 yards, and 859 yards in kick and punt returns.

    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.

    Now that’s how you stay on a team.

    I think we keep Switzer over Eli... And maybe both.

    I think it's probably something like: Juju, Moncrief, Washington, Johnson, Switzer,... then Rogers or Spencer (I think Rogers)

    Not sure. Depends on if Johnson shows something as a returner.

    I think Eli is the better WR with a bigger target for Ben.

    While Switzer was pretty reliable as a punt returner he wasn’t a threat and his YAC was pretty unimpressive.

    If it means anything, Switzer was at Ben's youth camp on Sunday. Johnson was there too. From what we saw last year, it looked like Switzer was becoming one of Ben's favorite targets. And Ben spoke highly of him on Sunday.

    I don't think he's going anywhere. I made a bold prediction to Armpit Jr. on Sunday... Ryan Switzer, Super Bowl 54 MVP. Mark it down

    I love it!! Switzer MVP! Speak it into reality.
    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.
