    Kicker talk

    If Bos and others have equal opportunity during camp and pre season and have equal results who do we sign or cut.
    The veteran who make more but has proven himself except for last year or the rookie who makes less and helps on cap space.

    Hands down Boz. The team wants him to be the guy. If they didn't then he wouldn't still be here.

    Boswell has had 3 very solid seasons in black and gold and then one very miserable season last year.

    If he performs well enough in camp and in preseason games to convince the coaches that 2018 was the fluke outlier and that 2015-2017 is more indicative of what we can expect to see from him going forward, then he's our future.

    So far, he appears to be doing just that. Keep it up, Boz...
    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.

    Not only has the Wizard of Boz been making his kicks. All of them have been right down the middle. Not like last year when even the kicks he made I found myself leaning toward a side as the ball just slipped inside the goal post.

    As for the punters I was hoping that Berryman would outkick Berry but that doesn't seem to be the case. Berryman seems to be even more inconsistent than Berry.

    Wright doesn't have the leg Boz has. Boz has looked like the Boz of old so far. He makes more but I'm sure if he reverts to 17 form he'll be back in everyone's good graces. The team and all of us want the best guy for the job. Boz was $ and could be $ again.
    Regarding the punting imho this goes right down to the last pre-season game. Berry is serviceable but not special, and Berryman has had some booms and a few busts in the early going. Smith asks for a lot of directional punting so we'll just have to watch n wait on this last of the 53 position. It's possible someone not on the roster is the opening day punter. Not likely but possible.

    It's not even that Boz has a huge leg. It's more of a question of does Wright even have a legit NFL leg?

    This competition is made up and not real imho. Either Boz figures his kicking out (and I assume he was hurt last year) and we go with him or he fails and we grab a different TBD kicker off the waiver wire that someone else cuts.

    Boz was kicking against himself all along. No question about that.

    Boz isn't going anywhere.
    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

    I told you guys when we signed Wright. I watched him his entire career at UCF. Accurate but does not have a strong leg. Anything past 35-40 yards is a hope and a prayer
