    He just made a ton of cash going in the third round.

    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

    Short, slow guy. But his Toledo experiences should help him in training camp . . . .

    No seriously, to leave Polite on the board...an elite pass rusher to get a very not special WR who is maybe a 5th round talent is unforgivable. This one will bite them in the butt. And before the homers condemn me for stating my opinion...just don't. It was a crap pick. Just like we said when Burns was picked.

    If there’s one word to describe Diontae Johnson in his brief, but prolific career at Toledo, it’d be “playmaker.”

    Johnson completed numerous home run plays in his time as a Rocket. He frequently utilized his speed advantage to gain separation down field and this resulted in plenty of 50+ yard touchdowns for Toledo. Johnson averaged a tremendous 16.6 yards per catch in his three years, ranking 20th in MAC history.

    The former Toledo wideout — who stands 5’10” and weighs 183 pounds — earned an NFL Combine invite, where he ran a 4.53 40-yard dash, benched 15 reps of 225, recorded a 33.5 inch vertical jump, and completed the 3-cone drill in 7.09 seconds. Johnson’s Combine invite stems from his breakout junior year, where he rose from a special teamer to one of the elite receivers in college football.

    During this 2017 season, a year which featured Toledo’s lone conference title of the decade, Johnson caught 74 passes for 1,278 yards and 13 touchdowns. He ranked 24th in receptions, 8th in receiving yards, and 4th in receiving touchdowns with these standout numbers. The Ruskin, FL native saw six games of over 100 receiving yards in 2017, including a monster 3-game stretch where he hauled in 23 passes for 480 yards and three scores.

    Saying Colbert and Tomlin don’t know how to draft after the first round? Pump the breaks a bit.

    Short and slow...noice! Sounds like a SB run is in order.
