    Realistically, I have to believe he'll never play again. But I think its awesome if that goal is one of the factors fueling his recovery. I hope he remains with the organization for a long time - even if just as a coach/consultant.
    With all of his accomplishments as of late, you can’t help but think about the possibilities of him returning to the field. If he does, I can see it would take our organization to another level. My eyes well up at the thought of him making it all the way back. What a journey if he does. His story makes all these other idiots bitching , moaning and complaining look like absolutely nothing.
    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.

    THIS is all I want for the guy.
    I do not for one minute want him to get back on a football field.
    Agree with all saying it is a class act by the org on not cutting him so he can get paid. Bravo Rooneys!!!!


    My advice to Shazier, Dude you can walk.....you can even run

    So....Go on now-

    Yeah Cap;it would be best of him to just ride off into the sunset with his family and health intact.

    I personally don't believe Shazier will ever play again, but if his dreams of doing so allow him to continue his improvement on the road to recovery then I think that's great.

    Devin Bush: Ryan Shazier’s “like my big brother”

    Posted by Josh Alper on July 2, 2019, 10:37 AM EDT

    Ryan Shazier‘s goal is still a return to playing in the NFL, but the linebacker’s current role around the Steelers is limited to continuing his rehab and serving as an advisor to other members of the team.

    One of the players who is benefitting from Shazier’s mentorship is the guy drafted in hopes of filling much of the hole Shazier left behind on the defense. The Steelers traded up with the Broncos to take Devin Bush in the first round this year and Bush said recently that Shazier has been in his ear throughout his first months with the team.

    “We stay in communication on a daily basis,” Bush said during an appearance on WSVN. “That’s like my big brother, honestly. He’s just showing me the ropes, the ins and outs of the NFL and how to be a man.”

    The lessons seem to be going well for the rookie. Early reviews of Bush’s work in Pittsburgh have been positive and he’s set to be in a major role when the season gets underway in September.

    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 hope the only football Shazier plays is with his kids.
