    That’s the way I see him too.
    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.

    Isaac Redman played at Division 2 Bowie State. Snell played in the SEC and rushed for more than a 1,000 yards every season for 3 years including almost 1,500 yards his senior season. Thereís no comparison to Redman, at least not at this point in time.

    He meant in the way he’ll produce and fit in as a pro.

    I'm going to be really honest, I like Snell's tape more than Conners when he came out. I admittedly was on the fence with Conner. Snell looks to be the superior back. The dude is a force. But, I'm a sucker for a true physical RB. He has some surprising suddeness and vision. His bounce is superb. Very little top end speed but enough quickness to hit all the gaps. I expect him to have injury issues on the next level because he loves to bang helmets. Dude is a Steeler. This will be a serious battle in camp I expect Conner to win. But, if Conner goes down, I expect Snell to pick up the slack and excel. Is he a franchise back? No. But, Between him and Conner our running game will be stout.

    I donít care Where they played. Iím looking at what I see. Both tough and strong. Both tight, slow, and lacking power. Similar weight and build. A comparison is easy to draw. But he will
    battle.

    I can only look forward to the second wave of free agency now.

    Did anyone see the 2019 Citrus Bowl this year. This kid pounded Penn State into submission in the 4th quarter. I remember thinking man this looks like the Bus. This is what the Steelers need.
