    In conclusion he was foolish to think another Watson deal was possible, but at the end of the day the kid cashed in.

    Me too. Jackson has been injured twice and missed ten games in the past two years. Just wait until gets hurt again. Any game now... The Ravens will have a hard time building a team around him with so much cap space taken by Lamar Jackson! I love it. It's perfect.
    Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in seven years and counting. The earliest will be eight years. I guess that in Art Rooney's II, opinion is worth a 3 year extension.

    Our 2024 draft looks to be grade A. Our 2023 draft is an A. The roster is talented, but Mike Tomlin is still the head coach.

    *** Mike Tomlin is the best coach since the AFL- NFL merger that has not won a playoff game in 8 seasons or more. It's either him or Lewis. ***

    I think the reality is that his style of play makes him more likely to get injured.

    Which is why the super athletes at QB tend to have short careers if they aren't average to above average passers. Just like Ben lost his magic when he stopped being able to carry multiple DL while throwing bombs.
    I think franchises are reasonable when it comes to business decisions regarding injuries.

    Especially franchise players…
    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 think if he was still holding out and prepared to sit out or play on the tag it would’ve been foolish. I don’t think its foolish to start with the Watson deal. IMO it would’ve been foolish not to try.

    Pretty sure his “team” reached out to let Screaming A know that they never demanded a Watson contract to begin with. Is this true? Probably not, but I think people also ran with the information they wanted and most of us have no idea what the actual back and forth was for either party.

    I think the most logical conclusion is Lamar wanted a Watson contract (who wouldn’t) but that was nixed early in the negotiations and then it was simply about banging out numbers until they both came to a number that worked.

    I think franchise really want to win all the time. Especially when they have QBs on cheap deals.

    If that QB is actively sabotaging that goal, I think they won't last long in the league.

    I don't know why you construct these theories. When a guy misses games because he's hurt. The reason he's missing games is because he's hurt. Especially when that guy is the biggest key to victory the team has.

    His other tactic of demanding a trade didn't work as there was never a price war for his services. For a moment he probably did think another team would come and give him what he desired.

    Both parties are now happy and can move past the drama that was.

    Usually players delete their team photos from their twitter. He was a bit more dramatic in his demands.. lol.

    Draft was so good there really isn’t much to say. Can’t wait for camp.

    I’m headed home this weekend and funny enough I’m more excited to see the Buccos right now.

    i mean we should all be happy, as Steeler fans, he took this much time to get a contract done.
    with Baltimore trying to install a new offense this year. The less time he has to grasp it, the better for us.
    In his 5th year he was still doing his 1 read and I’m running routine. This should bode well for us

    but we know some have agendas are are happier lamaar got the biggest contract out there ( for now).
    lol at those thinking it’s sone kind of vindication when that’s what Baltimore was offering from the beginning.
