    Let's say that Moats was right here about the playoff lineup.

    This is probably crazy, but what about cutting both Pouncey ($6.5M savings) and DD ($8.5M savings). I always think that Decastro is younger than he is (31).

    Then the OL would be

    (1st round rookie / cheap UFA) : Feiler (resigned) : (rookie / cheap UFA) : Dotson : Chucks

    Or maybe if we can resign both Feiler and Banner, we put banner at RT (job he won this year) and then Chucks becomes the swing tackle (or LT over scrub if we can't draft one that we think can play?).

    Not super happy with this. But it's a cheap line that we can hopefully improve on through the draft. Probably not a good line though (barring some excellent drafting).

    But if Decastro was bad this season (I can't really judge OL play except by results because I don't understand it enough), is the cap savings worth it?

    For the record, I don't think this happens and he plays out his contract or maybe does something to lower the cap hit this year.

    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 10 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 held on to Don Shula for too long for what he did in the playoffs in the 70ís...
    Are the same as Steeler fans (of 2020 ) holding on to Tomlin for too long for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches.

    Tomlin has always been a bunch of lip service. Name another modern day coach who could keep failing in the playoffs over and over again for a decade and keep his job? He’s all lip service

    All coaches are all lip service in PCs.

    At least the successful ones are.

    Media training teaches players and coaches how to not say anything when they're talking.
