    IMO, Tannehill was a better QB than Mason will ever be. The only question is if he can be that kind of QB ever again, at age 35 and with the injuries he's dealt with. His 2020 stats were 33 TDs to 7 INTs. I don't see Mason having those kinds of numbers ever.

    Only reason I take Tannehill is because he is familiar with Smith’s offense. That is huge IMO.

    I don’t see Tannehill pushing Kenny though.
    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"

    Which is the ultimate plan, the illusion of competition.

    Maybe.. but I think Kenny knows he isn’t safe after the way last season ended.

    I think Tannehill will cost a fair amount more than mason will.

    His last contract was $75M for 4 years (plus 2 dummy years).

    He won't get that again, but I think he'll still be a fair bit more than Mason (probably 2x).

    He's in a weird spot where he's not good enough to be a "win now" splurge. And he's too old to be a medium to long term play.

    I think it would be a bad decision to bring him in unless he was very cheap (and I don't think he will be).

    Moreover, keeping Mason just sets you up for a QB controversy.

    If you're committed to Pickett, go with him. If he fails, you draft a new one sooner.

    I personally have no interest in 2-3 years of KP vs MR discussions. Either Pickett is the man, or you go get one in the '25 draft.

    I think most people are completely missing THIS point.

    I tend to agree with this. I think this "competition at the QB position" talk creates more controversy than productive competition. Either someone is getting it and shines or he doesn't. Having someone waiting to take your job, I don't think motivates a QB to be great. They're already motivated to be the best they can be, and to get that 2nd contract to make them generational money.

    I think it can be more productive to have a good vet to learn from and bounce thoughts and ideas off of.

    I think we'll have QB drama at the beginning on this season no matter what we do after Kenny was "not benched" at the end of the year.

    But it's not something that's going to be drawn out over multiple seasons IMO.

    Tomlin was talking about how it's a very big year for Kenny this year. I think that means if he doesn't look average to above average, we're drafting someone else next season.

    Unless whoever else we bring in looks average to above average.
