    I'm not trying to bring politics into this discussion. I hate politics but this is what the hand size discussion reminds me of.
    I'm sure half the people here had the same thought. LOL

    Trump was insecure about his hand size and it's potential correlation to other sizes. So he called out Rubio. But I remember someone verified he has small hands.

    Make this is fake? No idea, but according to this article, he's got hands that are 1.5 inches smaller than Duck's measured from his hand print.

    I don't know whether the "Duck" is going to turn out to be our next coming of BR but he passed the first test. He could have many more tests to go and hopefully he passes them all with flying colors. In today's NFL it only takes one bad grade for a guy with Devlin's pedigree.
    ^This. In normal game conditions, not so much but when the weather turns, it's a factor.

    Some QB hand sizes:

    I thought McNabb had small hands too. Lots of fumbles IIRC

    The correct answer is somewhere between your opinions... I've said from the start, Mike Vick 2.0. Electric player with a cannon for an arm - streaky with accuracy. He'll win games for ya. He'll lose games for ya. I also said "coach killer" 2.0, but, I'm giving the Ravens staff credit for doing a better job that what Atlanta did with Vick.

    In any event, if you thought Vick was a capable QB, then Lamar's better (because unlike Vick, he'll get in the playbook as best he can; you'll never mistake his IQ for a Peyton Manning, tho).

    Never wanted him as OUR guy because of the streakiness. Also don't want to face him because of his athleticism. AFCN is the worst place he could've landed as a Louisville alum who's a Steelers fan.
    I liked Lamar in college and like him as a franchise NFL QB. I'm watching his accuracy improve. They are developing him nicely. He has elite arm talent, and his legs need no mention. He is going to be a headache for years to come.

    Jackson has some talent. But I think he could equally be Wilson2.0 or RG4.

    Fortunately small hands haven't kept Trump from being a great President.

    We're still talking about hands, right?

    He performs well against crap teams. Against teams that are at least respectable or above, he's shown little to nothing. I suspect against the Bengals he'll have a good day because they too are garbage. Against our defense, he was terrible in the pocket. 3 picks.
    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.

    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
