    On Levis he did take a lot of sacks ( 36 ) in a low amount of attempts. He did not run a 40 yard , 10 yard dash , not did he run a 20 yard shuttle or a cone drill at the combine or his pro day. Why? His estimated 40 yard dash time is believed to around 4.7. Now his " sackabilty " could be due to a bad OL, he likes to hold on to the ball too much, is his lack of mobility. It should be viewed negatively unless proven..
    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.

    I don’t think there is a strong positive correlation between timed speed and sacks.




    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

    No there is not. But there is a correlation between qb's who hold the ball too long and QB's with an average to bad release and sacks. Football is a game of tenths of seconds!

    maybe for sacks outside the pocket but that’s about it.

    I don’t think anyone cares about a QB’s cone time or 40 time unless its blazing fast but that has nothing to do with sacks.
    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"

    Yep. Coaches in pro-sports have a lot of hubris.

    I'm fine taking these kind of players outside of premium picks though. Maybe it's better to take a swing on a very good athlete vs. a guy who was smart / in position in college but looks too slow / small / weak for the NFL.
