    i DO like the kid from Ga... smart QB... we haven't had one of those in quite some time. Could be fun.

    I agree. I'm not worried either. But after we fix the O-line, next year it would be nice to upgrade in the draft.
    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.

    WE WILL NOT WIN ANOTHER SUPER BOWL WITH MIKE TOMLIN AS OUR HEAD COACH. So why delay the inevitable?

    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.

    That combo might give us what it did last season: 29th in rushing at 90 ypg. That is dog crap and we won't go anywhere with such ineptitude.

    I’m also not worried. And, I would love for us to snag Darrynton Evans in the 6th. I would take him with a 5th, but we don’t have one. Darrynton is a helluva player.

    Yep, I think we're fine. We will now have a real FB on the field (Nix was injured how much last year?) and an actual passing threat with Ben back and adding Ebron to the mix. The RB's will be fine, IMO. Snell has a year in the system now and Conner should be good for as long as he can stay healthy. Not worried. OL and Edge rusher are just bigger needs, IMO.

    Dig a little deeper whisper.

    No NFL defense respected the Steelers passing game. Loaded the box and said goodluck passing.

    That doesn't excuse being as rubbish as 29th. If you think we are fine at RB as we sit, I don't know what to tell you, other than we are not. And the team seems to agree with me, having chats with RBs.
