    Lmao.. you really have a hard time accepting reality.

    He was better in 2018 than Vance was in 2018 with Ben.

    and better in 2019 with Brissett than Vance was with our backups.

    13 TD’s in 2018.

    Top 13 dude!!!
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    Ebron is more of a split end right?

    Still wonder if Vance is expendable now or are we just accepting he is more of a blocking TE?

    Here is how I look at this. Vance and Gentry were both around in 19 so even if Gentry improves lets say those 2 are a push and cancel each other out. Is Ebron a better player than Vannett?
    Now they are different in that Vannett is more blocker and Ebron more the pass catcher however I would find it hard to believe Ebron is not an upgrade. Ebron imho is an upgrade. So did we get better ? Did we upgrade imho yes, yes we did. Now Ebron isn't Ertz so it's not a great move but a good move yeah I would say that.

    given our cap situation i commend colbert for the moves weve made...the creativity to free up some money...and for the guys weve brought in (seem to be steeler types that address positions of need).

    Lol....you make me laugh at you.
    31 rbs were better than Bell last year but you say he is top 3, should get paid 15+, didn't get used right, wrong coaches, etc etc etc.
    But now you want to use stats to say Ebron we better than Vance last year....
    You mean the year without a starting QB?
    I'm almost ready to quit. You've gotten too easy.
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and 25% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    Never thought we'd go for Ebron. Adds a valuable weapon for our passing game.

    My thoughts...WOW I wasn't expecting this.

    Given some time to think about it, it makes a whole lot of sense. Where to begin, my mind is exploding now!

    1) Fits the need. ( We are officially deep, now Vance can be a #2 TE! )
    2) We played a lot of 2 TE sets, back with JJ ( 50% snaps) and McDonald ( 51%). It seems like we might be going forward with a flex TE in the O, or maybe 3 TE sets.
    3) Adds a TD maker, something that we sorely missed after AB left.
    4) Adds more recievers. ( He plays as a big receiver, rather than a classic TE)
    5) Avoids us reaching for TE and expcting them to play right away. TE takes time to develope in NFL compared to college. Like most drafts we cover that need so we don't reach, but we end up drafting that position to slowly bring on slowly. I am not counting out us taking a TE in the draft, but if we do, count on that player to play key role in 2021.
    6) Insurance if Vance is hurt.
    7) Don't forget the roosters this year is 55, so maybe they go with 4 TEs ( Vannette might be back)
    ďIím so tired of LeíVeon," DeCastro told reporters (h/t ESPN's Jeremy Fowler ([url]https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/1038909446146203649[/url])) after Sunday's game. "Iím so tired of it. Letís just worry about the guys in here. I know you guys have stories to write and what not. I love LeíVeon, but we gotta worry about the guys in here. Theyíre the only people that matter to me."

    If anything, Ebron should help in the red zone. A certain poster wonít like the pickup but I applaud Colbert.

    Once again you bring up Bell in a post about TE’s...

    I wonder why?

    I said Ebron was better than Vance BOTH YEARS. You are the one trying to flip years because Ebron had 13 TD’s in 2018.

    He’s a Steeler now. It’s an upgrade.
