    Think you guys will enjoy this.
    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.

    Dolphin fans in the 90ís who wanted to hold on to Don Shula for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches

    The Steelers need a RB with some wiggle and receiving skills.

    We have no one on the roster that has both. We have no quickness at RB.
    Tomlin: Let's unleash hell and "mop the floor" with the competition.

    I can't disagree. Quickness would be a plus, but effectiveness matters most. If AJ Dillon is productive, that is all that matters. If TN lacks quickness with Henry, does it matter? Also, Dillon is not slow per se, he's quick enough AND happens to bring 250 lbs with him.

    Well, dolphins have interviewed Dobbins. So scratch him off the list.

    I never saw Dobbins falling to us.

    I think Kerrith Whythe most closely fits that description (ran a 4.36 at the combine).. unfortunately hes buried pretty low on the depth chart.

    As good as a healthy Conner and better than Snell

    Id be curious to see how good Snell could be with a legit vertical passing game and a retooled O-Line.

    We'd like all that; plus a guy with some size as well.

    I think regardless of who (if) we take a runningback in the draft, Snell is going to get at least a few opportunities. We'd all like to see him maximize them.
