    When both are healthy, Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye with the Jets is a really solid young safety tandem.
    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 have a feeling we are going to see an uptick in INTs.
    I would say they are near the top, i think Edmunds has played well flying around the field.

    I hope that Sean Davis isn't left behind with Fitzpatrick now. Big Nickel with Edmunds next to Bush and Davis at SS, Fitz at FS can be an awesome package to throw out and especially with 70% of plays being in subpackages. And if it's a dime then put Fitz on their best slot as a CB, Bush on the back, and Edmunds and Davis back to their SS/FS role. Don't see why Davis needs to be left in the dust.
    Davis is done

    Edmunds is not as bad as most fans think. Blame Butler for letting offense dictate his defense. There's no reason that Nelson who is a good slot corner does not slide inside on the receiver instead of staying on a TE or a RB. It's his scheme. Or also Edmunds or Davis playing 10 yards off and trying to cover a slot.

    there was one play in the preseason where edmonds shocked me with how fast he covered ground. then his man coverage on the TD he gave up was really good coverage even though the pass was perfectly placed.

    other than those 2 plays, i've not seen anything great. but i like his athleticism. and his LB brother.

    Edmunds has gotten beaten a few times, which is what I suppose most fans look at, but I think he has played overall better. He is leading the team in tackles. I know that is meaningless. But he is getting in on a lot of plays. He athleticism and desire are evident to me. We'll have to wait an see how the newcomer looks, but I think the safety tandem has a lot of possibilities. I don't think too many people touted Davis as being a top player.

    I certainly haven't seen that and it's my opinion that his play has been decidedly poor. now you can make the case that's because he has had and injured Sean Davis and a scrub from the AAF alongside of him and I will listen to that argument

    but to call him a "really good" safety at this point in his career is premature
    This is a true and accurate statement.
    From the 2010-2019 season, (A 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.
    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the 70ís...

    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008.
