    Duck Starting versus Cleveland

    Per Tomlin. No real surprise considering the struggles of Rudolph.

    Feels like the right call.

    Something with MR isn't right now. Maybe it gets better, and maybe not. I'd imagine that playing in Cle again for him wouldn't go super well.

    Duck's got his own issues, but I think he probably gives us a better chance to win this weekend. In a game that's pretty important if we want a chance at a playoff birth.

    Seems like a sound decision. Duck was pedestrian but solid against the bolts, but has made some good plays and certainly doesn’t seem overwhelmed. Mason just hasn’t made the strides many such as myself expected. I would love to see a breakout game for Hodges (who wouldn’t) but a mistake free game, 17-20 points may be enough to end the browns season.

    Here’s hoping.

    Ok, Steeler fans go and buy a cheap Duck call and take it to the game and call the Duck out of the locker room with a Duck call and use it during the game as well!

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    The Steelers roster is void of any good QBs. Tomlin didn’t exactly give a glowing evaluation of why Duck is the starter. He basically said he expects Hodges “not to kill us”. That doesn’t scream confidence.

    LOL. That's a great idea. Someone should get Heinz to hand out free duck calls for the game! Imagine 60k+ duck calls going. That would sound amazing!

    I think MR is better QB and better long time choice too, maybe it's only my perception, but I'm more relaxed right now with Duck.

    "We met as a staff, and we decided we're going to start Duck this week," said Tomlin. "And really the decision is clear to us."
