    This is in line with what Colbert was saying before the draft about not having the rookies start being optimal.

    Sounds great; I can't wait.
    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.

    FIRE MIKE TOMLIN

    Colbert was talking good things about Layne on Sirius this afternoon....
    I wish people would/could leave politics out of a Steelers Football Forum.

    I think they have a well thought out strategy to get the players on the field when they prove ready even in their rookie year. Look at Edmunds last year and Watt the year before that

    I'm anxious to see Edmunds this year. I'm looking for him to take the next step.

    To the contrary, if he had hands, he'd have stayed at WR.

    As Bradshaw once said when asked whether he was going to challenge a particular corner: "Yes, I will. If those guys could catch, they'd be receivers."

    I agree with Ike having ball skills but not being a ball hawk. He was usually in position, was able to track the ball in the air, and make a play on it, he just could not catch the ball if somebody handed it to him.

    So is this ballhawk or ball skills??.. I'm confused:

    But I thought any first round DB pick by the Colbert/Tomlin duo was predestined to be a hopeless failure?
    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.
