    That it makes sense to bring him back if we look competitive.

    But if we suck (and so far I think we do), might as well let him get to 100%.
    That's the smart thing to do, I just think they'll panic and rush him back when we're 2-4.

I have seen enough. Tomlin however will wait until the season is officially lost before even considering a QB change. If he is not ready for Pickett then put Ruddy in!!!!!.
    Yeah!!!!




    In view of the fact that Mike Tomlin has matched Cowhers record I give him the designation:

    I am afraid of that as well. If we win lose the next 2 there is no reason to rush him back and risk further injury.

    honestly, the offense was better in the 1st half when they seemed to have a better mix of passes beyond 10 yards downfield.
    In the second half, there seemed to be a lot fewer until the 4th quarter in panic mode.

    Mitch missed badly on a handful of throws... dare I say it - I honestly believe Pickett wins that game.

    That wasnt the penalty, the penalty was for ineligible man down field.

    It doesn't appear our rush D has been fixed, does it?

    As a fan so do I, but Pickett is a rookie, and rookie's at quarterback's make a lot of mistakes and throw interceptions. Pickett has not proven he can pass it beyond the short stuff! It all he complete in 3 pre-season games vs the 2nd and 3rd string guys. So what you saying is a projection and it wasn't close to being proven during the pre-season. As bad as things are an offense, we have not turned the ball over.

    This doesn't excuse Trubisky who is far from a rookie!
    The offense needs a RB capable of hitting big plays in the rushing and passing department, and two new starting OL. The run D needs at DT/NT and new ILB to stop the run. Better play calling / coaching is badly needed. Time to put them all on the shopping list for the next draft / offseason because they are not changing this year. That much I'm fairly confident of.

    Not even close. We need a big DT/NT who can make plays. It is on the shopping list next free agency and draft.

    I'm hoping that we don't do something stupid since we still have him under contract for big $$ for a while.

    And this year is looking like it isn't going to be all that competitive anyway.

    Guys can always get hurt, but I don't think it's worth bringing him back if they think the risk is elevated.

    Not when your offense goes 3 and outs and are something like 1 for 9 on 3rd downs. Time of possession favored the Browns by over 13 minutes. That's almost a full quarter.
