    I agree.
    How does an individual allow himself to not ‘be at his best’, on the most important weekend of his life?
    How is it possible to have the best owner, best front office, best gm, best HC, good/great drafts every year and good FA acquisitions every year, but only have 3 playoff wins in 14 years?

    the wings comment - i caught a little of a special on the ravens defense - tony siragusa told a story of eating a ton of wings the night before the game and being "stopped up"...

    Once the cleared him out, he wasn't happy to see that they had the white uniforms that day. He said, if i'm on the field and laying on my back DO NOT roll me over

    That is the worry. As Ohio State guy that might have an off the field problem. In this case it too much food. I'm not saying he does or doesn't but he has to watch what he eats and listen to his coaches. Tomlin track record has too many prima donnas. I do not think he handles those type of player well.

    We don't know him. The Steelers have a much better insight to his character. I think he is worth the 32nd pick of the draft because he is great at a few things, and there is very little great anything in the draft. A pure power based right tackle who will instantly upstage our run blocking and from the looks of it, has will do better at pass blocking too. He has to watch those flags and watch his weight.
    Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in seven years and counting. The earliest will be eight years. Art Rooney II, get a new head coach.

    Our 2024 draft is grade A.

    An observation of mine is that often post-combine, guys rise, but by the time the draft comes they settle back to where there were before, with a handful of special exceptions... My gut says there's a "better than we think" chance that Broderick Jones will be there at 1.17 (or nearby). And our assistant o-line coach who got tossed at the combine by him may have an opinion. BWAHAHA
    Hope you're right Deville. Given the choice between drafting one of the top 3 LTs and letting Moore and Chuks fight for the right side vs. a stud RT and Chuks and Moore battle for the left side, I'm hoping for a LT. Want to see what happens if none fall at 17 and Anton Harrison and either Jones/Wright available at 32.
