    Impatiently waiting patiently

    I’m not even mad anymore, I’ve just accepted that Tomlin and company are fine with mediocre football this year and have no desire to see KP right now.

    If Mitch played a full game like he did in the first half maybe we win that game..


    but if the FO is fine watching this dude go 1 for 7 on 3rd down then so be it.

    and some people think Tomlin cares about 15 non losing seasons, clearly
    looks like he is fine with ending that streak this year.

    Are we tanking?
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    I have zero expectations for this season, so these losses really don't bother me like they normally would. I just fear we're going to burn a year of potential development for Kenny.

    I'm in this boat. I knew it was a lost season. So I'm not as emotionally attached as in other years.

    I can't imagine that he won't be put in at some point. And if we only score 13 - 17 every week, we've probably got a good chance at getting a premium pick.

    That is the problem, in 2 ways.

    1. He didn't
    2. They expect it

    I don't think we are tanking. On KP, I could be wrong on this, please let me know your thoguhts.

    Did Tomlin really want Willis and he is taking a stand against KP? It sounds absurd (I agree) but I can't think of anything else. Why let Kenny sit? It is not like he is behind an Aaron Rogers.
    Help me find my post proving I am a Yinzer!

    My early 2024 draft:

    1.) OT - Amarius Mims, OT - Georgia
    2.) OC - Jackson Powers-Johnson, C - Oregon
    3.) DE - Jered Verse, DE - Florida State
    4a.) ILB - Jerimiah Trotter LB - Clemson
    4b.) QB - Mike Pratt - QB - Tulane
    6.) CB - Marcellus Dial - CB - South Carolina
    7.) LB -Marist Liufau ILB - Notre Dame

    UDFA: P, WR, S. C

    We don't apologize for winning!

    Heres what to expect... KP's ceiling being roughly the same as MTs under Matt Canada... now and in the future..

    Your argument only makes sense if you ASSUME Pickett steps in and plays like a star. That is a reach

    I want him to be a star but expecting a rookie to save your season is an unlikely outcome
    "My team, may they always be right, but right or wrong...MY TEAM!"

    I could see Tomlin being encouraged by what he saw from Mitch in the first half and now sticking with him longer than we should.

    I'm also not emotionally attached this season. I'm planning to go to the Saints game and I'm really hoping Kenny is playing by then. I really think we're going to be no better than 2-6 by that time. And we'll probably have suffered at least 2 very humiliating losses by then.

    That last line is what I implied before. Not "trying" to lose, but not trying to reduce losses with a QB change knowing we cant contend for a SB.
    Saving Kenny for when we have more pieces in place. Losing more gets us better picks.

    What if Burrow never got hurt and Cincy was not garbage his rookie season?

    No Chase.

    How differently things play out last season?

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

    TCFCLTC-
    The Coach Formerly Considered Less Than Cowher
