    They should be. Let the competition begin

    ummmm no, it doesn't sound like that at all.

    Darrius Heyward-Bey is currently an unrestricted free agent. His contract (and Justin Hunter's, for that matter) expired at the end of last season, and he is not on the Steelers roster now. AB, DHB, and Hunter are gone, while Donte Moncrief and Dionte Johnson were added. We should keep 6 WR on our final roster: Juju, Moncrief, Washington, Rogers, Switzer, and Johnson.
    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 think that’s a good bet. I’m not a DHB fan and it’s time for an upgrade. I like both Switzer and Rogers. Who knows, this cat may show us something. Many people in the know seem to love the guy. Gem who got overlooked by online scouts? Possibly. The FO seems to bat 50/50 with these kinds of picks. Will make for an interesting camp.

    DHB is not on the roster according to steelers.com. My projection right now would be Juju, Washington, Moncrief, Switzer, Johnson. If they keep 6 it could be rogers, or any of the other 6 they have on the roster right now.

    Johnson plays the X. Rogers and Switzer are Slots. Shouldn't be that worried.

    I honestly do not know who would win out between Switzer and Rogers.

    I think Rodgers is a better receiver if you take away Switzers return ability Rodgers becomes the clear choice in my opinion.

    Then your saying Washington is in trouble?
    From the 2010-2019 season, (An 9 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

    For possible playing time, sure. For a roster spot? No, not at all. Johnson repaces AB, Moncreif replaces DHB. Same amount of receivers this year as last year.
