Hello members and visitors! The forum has been upgraded to a new server and new forum software versions. We are in the process of tidying up and making it look nicer, but for now, please check out our two newest themes: Steel Nexus and Steel Nexus Worksafe!

    the Dobbs pass was awesome ... showed real grit ... 3rd and long deep in your own end coming into the game without a single warm up pass and throws a dime for a 22 yard completion and a 1st down ....

    UDFA Mike Hilton makes a big difference in our secondary ...

    couple that with doing what the 3-4 is intended to do ( apply pressure) and its masks a whole hell of a lot of deficiencies

    hopefully Butler learned something

    37-34 Steelers get their first W of the year

    its a score fest and we finally over come our own putrid defense

    James Washington ..... breakout game 5 catches 90 yards and a TD

    Jesse James nabs another TD

    AB gets his too ...

    Conner says don't forget about me and adds one of his own

    not so fast ...

    Ben 1 day of practice banged up elbow on throwing arm ....

    My Guy from last Draft Mahomes , showing he can sling it last week ...

    this game could be ugly for someone ...

    or double Ugly and be a close one ?

    I will go with the latter ...

    Mahomes 2 TD passes but also a pair of picks to help balance the scales a bit and allow us a chance in this game ...

    Ben with just 25 attempts this week is my guess with a banged up arm ....

    we grind it out with Conner and his running mates

    Boswell does work !

    Steelers 23-Chefs 20

    I can't believe the roster is set. Only three outside linebackers? Two injured tight ends? Moves must be made.

    one would think . that said I see nothing happening and its game week .....

    guessing Mathew Thomas is the emergency OLB and also guessing 3-4 may not be our base any longer but a subpackage ?

    maybe we see a ton of Dollar def with some of these bigger safeties plugging the linebacker spots ?

    I just do not know what to think except they better find a way to stop the run with the downlineman with just clean up duty from those big safeties or we could be in for some really long afternoons

    roster is young fast and explosive .... lacking in experience in some areas however but I like it...

    that said some waiver wire guys I would look real hard at ...

    Kevin Minter LB

    Kevin Pierre Louis LB

    John Simon OLB/DE

    Shane Lechner P ... yes he is 42 but still owns a better leg than Berry

    Clive Walford TE

    Jace Amaro TE

    me too ( unless it was Pittsburgh ) would have loved him hear but would have been really difficult ..

    a signed Bell would have had to be part of it to free up money to sign him long term ( so unlikely ) and then you have to explain to the team how the new guy is going to make more than guys who have been here , not something we do as an organization ...

    so its cool we will see him every 4 or 5 years

    Dobbs put out a statement game ... 135 QB rating tonight and 111 for the preseason and averaged 10 yards per attempt for the preseason ( not per completion ) per attempt ! that is outstanding , he looks to drive the ball down the field !

    Jones looks to dump it off ..

    I am wanting a QB with killer instinct looking to win games , not playing to not lose them ....

    Dobbs is my backup if I am making the decisions and Rudolph is the 3 and Jones is on another roster holding a clip board

    ** designates if no trade is worked out prior to cutdown

    with Grimble Hurt they almost have to keep Hodges , that said Coty Sensabaugh , Josh Dobbs , Landry Jones ( one or all 3 ) could be traded prior to or just after cutdown

    if Dobbs lights it up tomorrow ... it may be Jones that goes , I seen a report that the market was heating up for BOTH players ...

    so for a market to be heating up that to me at least sounds like they are open to dealing them at the right price ?

    Dobbs passer rating this preseason is 110 ... if he lights it up again they might just keep him or could perhaps get a decent pick or player ( linebacker ? TE ? )

    I am not a Sensabaugh fan but as a 5th corner I would take that ...but if we could get a 5th for him I would be ok with that too

    as a return man he is better than any other option on the roster not named AB , that said it is past time to quit risking the best WR in the game to punt duty and this move does just that ...

    Not sure if it is Washington or if they wanted a specialist ( why they brought in Henderson from Pitt) but henderson played it safe and never put anything on tape to get excited about through 3 preseason games ...

    I think they wanted a specialist and now they have one who also offers something in terms of a backup slot receiver , which will make Eli obsolete ( currently hurt and on the pup and now suspended 1 game ) so now 1 player doing the jobs of 2 ( henderson and eli ) saving a roster spot

    I think Ola is here to stay all he does is work his tail off ... very good run fits , sat edge nicely and got pressure what more could anyone ask ?

    Samuels showed to be the player I thought he was ( finally) ... it took awhile to get there but he seems and looks comfortable now .

    James Conner is worlds better this year , not only rushing the ball , but as stated catching passes out of the backfield and much improved as a blocker ...

    I agree dirty red took a big step back , in fact so much so he went from penciled in starter to a guy I see as on the bubble and I will not be shocked if he doesn't make the 53 .

    another pleasant surprise for me anyways was the blocking of Bucky Hodges ( a guy said to have zero ability as a blocker ) stuck his block and maintained it nicely for about 3 seconds springing Samuels for a nice 1st down run over the left side ...

    I hope to see Wile in the full game as the punter this week in the preseason finale as I liked what I seen from him vs the titans and he may be a slight upgrade over berry ( who IMO sucks)

    roster cuts this year will be very interesting
