    I said it weeks ago and people laughed.

    The “play hard” is a dig that came up after I gave the team credit for battling in those early losses to Seattle and San Fran.

    We’ve been in every game except one this year and that’s what makes Tomlin a great coach. 90% of the time we have a chance to win our games late in the fourth.

    That’s not luck, that’s not in spite of, that’s because we have a good coaching staff.

    Sure the O stinks but we don’t have the talent on O right now. Even with Conner, Snell, Nix the offense isn’t scary this year but it can do enough to win a few games if they stop turning it over.

    There's a big difference between the 2 of them. And it's arm strength. Ben has a cannon. MR has a squirt gun.

    Ben's arm has overcome his play for most of his career. Mason needs to be smarter and play a lot smarter and that's just going to take time.

    I get frustrated with Mason also but then I think back to another QB who struggled. This guy took over the starting job his second year also. Here are his stats for his first 2 years as a starter

    Year 1 - 320 out of 526 for a 60.8% completion percentage with 17 TDs and 16 interceptions
    Year 2 - 205 out of 356 for a 57.6% completion percentage with 11 TDs and 15 interceptions (9 games)

    The next year was his breakout year

    Year 3 - 262 out of 400 for a 65.5% completion percentage with 27 TDs and 7 interceptions.


    Can anybody guess who this QB is? The second question is will the Steeler fans have enough patience to see if Mason can develop into a great QB?
    As many on this site think ... The Rooney's suck, Colbert sucks, Tomlin sucks, the coaches suck, and the players suck.

    but Go Steelers!!!

    Mason is going to be fine and a QB we can win with.

    He may not be as good as Ben, but who is? It took us over 20 years after Bradshaw retired to get a franchise QB.

    I think Mason will be at least as good as Derek Carr who is a solid NFL QB and he has the potential to be better. We can win if he is that, especially if we aren't committing 20% of the salary cap to a "franchise" QB and we can add the necessary complementary pieces.

    Don't know who the QB is.

    But I hope Mason's next year of starting doesn't come for a few years and we get high level Ben with a high level D.

    That combination has led to 3 SB appearances in the past and hopefully a few more.

    Peyton?

    Hell, I don’t know... but I definitely remember Peyton having a ton of turnovers his first few seasons.

    IMO what makes Mason ok is his lack of turnovers. Just means we won’t see as many splash plays as well.

    I just hope he stops taking sacks in his own endzone. His lack of urgency on those plays is scary.
