He runs so upright and flat footed with choppy type steps. He's stiff looking and has no fluidity to him. He certainly didn't look very good Sunday night especailly those short yardage plays they desperately needed... Yea he had good company I know.
    It worked for Eddie George, why not Conner?

    I agree with the crowd here that I think Conner is good enough.

    I think we'll see in the next few games though. I think every team we face will focus on taking JuJu out of the game and making us win with other guys. Conner, McDonald, Montcrief, Washington, and everyone else should get plenty of opportunity to prove their worth this season.

    I’m more concerned about Jaylen Samuels only getting 2 carries on Sunday night after running over the Pats for 140 yards last season. Doesn’t make sense why Connor wasn’t benched and Samuels given more carries.

    Not splitting carries between RBs has been a hallmark of the Tomlin era. I think it led to his biggest screw up mismanaging Blount.

    Most agile?

    Conner, is that you?

    The entire gameplan was questionable. I think it was 1st and 10 on (I think) the fourth drive. Draw pitch to Conner for 5. 2nd down draw pitch to Conner for 4. 3rd down....hey, maybe they haven't noticed yet so draw pitch to Conner.....for -4. I was scratching my head on that one.

    Several other questionable calls throughout, but this one helped set the table.

    My response after a game like that one is always the same. Any team can get blown out, embarrassed, that is not the measure of the team. The measure is what they do next time out. This game will tell me more about this team than last week's game.

    Conner was the only one on offense acting like he cared. I have zero problems with Conner.
    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

    Becoming? We’ve always been fanatical and unrealistic.

    Let’s be honest tho, we waited a long time for this game and they looked like trash.

    We should all turn our attention to the next game by tomorrow.

    They didn't just lose a game... they lost mojo too. That thumpin' is going to test this team's character.

    Same crap different year... They had a whole off season to prepare for this game and the whole organization just crapped the bed, again.

    More importantly, does this team currently have the talent to even sniff the playoffs?

    Other than JuJu, the receivers are a mess. Do they have a tight end that can block?

    The running back plods along like he's wearing snowshoes. His style is probably going to make his NFL career a short one.

    The secondary couldn't cover a napping old man with a blanket. The whole squad is average at best.

    One of the outside linebackers should be on a milk carton as being missing. They just released one that probably is better than the #48 starter.

    I hope I'm wrong and they pull it together, but me thinks they have to many glaring holes to contend this year. NE just showed that right up front.

    Unleash hell, Tomlin!
