    Yep.

    This is the downside of having huge contracts.

    But I still think it's important to have game breaking players. And that's what TJ is when he's on the field.

    Hopefully he can stay healthy for the majority of the contract.

    He's putting up DPOY numbers even though he's missed games this year.

    I'd rather have 1 TJ (and 1 Highsmith as the other starter) than 2 Bud Duprees (and 1 Highsmith in rotation). And I think Bud is better than he's playing this year. But he's probably the level of player that you don't want to spend big money on (top 10ish guy).

    TJ's a top 3-ish guy (i.e. elite). And I think that's where you want to use your cap dollars. I want elite guys who make lots of money plus dirt cheap guys on rookie contracts (who are hopefully somewhere close to league average). Then fill in the open spots with cheap vets with question marks (but try to get a few of them and hope one works out).

    at one time we had Archibong, Delontae Scott, Henry Mondeaux and Derrek Tuszka in our front 7.

    can't win with those guys playing, that's for sure.

    Every time I bring it up Watt comes back and plays awesome..

    but it still hurts to have so much invested in one guy
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    FWIW, his cap hit this year isn't actually that big at $8.1M.

    It's the next 4 years where it will be $31M (next year) then 3 years between $27M and $28.2M.

    But I'm sure those numbers will change because we'll restructure.

    If we had to field last night's defense the rest of the way, I don't see another win in the schedule. Maybe the Clowns if they continue to implode:

    Bengals
    Ravens
    Vikings
    Titans
    Chiefs
    Browns
    Ravens

    We need guys getting healthy. Quick.

    The way Eckler went through us like a hot knife through butter was especially frustrating and embarrassing. He was doing video game stuff on us. Especially that TD where he shook 3 defenders in the redzone and walked in.

    If our run defense is similar to what we just saw, Joe Mixon is going to have a field day with us.
    From the 2010-2020 season, (A 11 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. Currently, Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in 4 years.

    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 2021 ) holding on to Tomlin for too long for what he did in 2008, with Cowher's players & coaches.

    I know this year isn’t the hurt piece for his cap hit. But I do think we let a few guys go in order to get his contract done.

    Maybe I’m wrong though.
    Tomlinís coming back so what can you do?

    we need to get more turnovers if we're gonna be successful the remaining games:

    Alex Kozora
    @Alex_Kozora

    Steelers' INTs after ten games, 2019-2021:

    2019: 14
    2020: 15
    2021: 4

    Massive dropoff this season. Defense/secondary needs to create more splash. Starting this weekend against the Bengals.
