    Watt's Up with T.J.?

    We were supposed to hear about a new contract following the Carolina game. Any news on it yet?

    I bet they wait until final cuts to see if they can add another body somewhere. It looks like they've done the same while adding ingram and Joe show.

    I suspect the numbers are done, they just have to structure in a way that fits the cap both this year and the next few years

    Makes sense.

    My question is, how long will it take for TJ to get into the groove of the season? It would suck if it takes 4 or 5 weeks because he hasn't had any contact, etc. I'm sure he's in football condition but contact is contact and there is no prepping for that without actually doing it.

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

    Have to watch out for the dreaded hammy injury too.

    I’m surprised (not really) at the lack of frustration over Watt sitting out while still under contract.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    Didn't Troy sign a contract basically on a plan to game 1 in the past?

    I hope it gets announced soon...but I think it's possible that it comes right down to the wire again.

    Dulac was wrong about Berry sticking. He also said no way MR would get the nod over Landry Jones. Now I'm questioning his status as an insider with any knowledge of the team.

    TJ isn’t in “football shape” and the only way to get there is to play. I too am worried about him coming in and trying to do too much too soon and causing injury to himself at this point.

    Management knew the numbers they were going to have to give him and yet they let this drag out as long as it has.

    He’s not ready for week one at this point. And to have any type of chance against Buffalo, you need a pass rush that’s going to hit Allen and protect our secondary.
    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.

    honestly without being someones trainer I am not sure how anyone can determine whether another person they do not even have eyes on is or is not in football shape ... its an over blown term used by talking heads just like football in shorts 40 time numbers ( not everyone handles the weight of pads the same a 4.43 guy in shorts might be 4.5 in pads a 4.4 guy might be 4.4 in pads so who is faster ?? )

    if you do not have eyes on a player and do not know what training he is under going please refrain from commenting on what kind of shape they are in ( unless its guy who is normally 200 pounds and looks 250 you truly have no clue )

    You don’t get it. Football shape isn’t the same as just training shape. Anyone who’s watched the game as long as I have knows that. That’s common knowledge.

    That’s why we’re concerned about him all of a sudden pulling a hamstring because that is the most common occurrence when you try to ramp up too fast.
