Looks good. Curious to see how free agency shakes out.
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!
1. CB BYRON MURPHY WASHINGTON
Plug -n- Play starter at a position of need
2. TE NOAH FANT IOWA
Jessie James is as good as gone. Vance McDonald can't be relied upon to stay healthy.
3. OLB D'ANDRE WALKER
Excels at setting the edge in run defense; will develop as a pass rusher.
4. WR DAVID SILLS WEST VIRGINIA
The AB saga makes WR a position of need. Love Sills' height and work ethic.
6a. CB MYLES BRYANT WASHINGTON
Small, but physical. Would fit as a nickel back.
6b. LB BOBBY OKEREKE STANFORD
After watching Okereke in the Sun Bowl, I'm not sure he will last until the 6th round.
7. DL MATT NELSON IOWA
I would hire Munchak as the head coach, much like I would have hired Russ Grimm instead of Tomlin.
Fire the entire coaching staff.
Thought I would shout into the echo chamber just to see if anyone might be listening.
Bump for Thanksgiving 2018.
He may start vs the Steelers in a couple of weeks.
In related news, Josh Dobbs completed his first pass attempt in a regular season game.
Signed with Jacksonville today.
Glad to be wrong.
Last team with the ball may be the winner. I'm not that optimistic though. The Falcons are going to exploit the many weaknesses in the Steelers defense, and the Steelers offense won't score enough to overcome the defensive shortcomings.
I was waiting to see if Ju Ju was going to play after being limited in practice earlier in the week.
I'm looking for a game a lot like the Vikings at Rams on Thursday. Both offenses are going to have success, but the defense that can come up with a stop when it is most needed will provide the margin of victory.
I think the Steelers will be that team, and Matthew Thomas will be the guy to step up. It could be a sack, an interception or just a QB hurry, but my crystal ball says the undrafted rookie becomes the difference maker.
The two tight end formation continues to be successful. Jesse James gets a red zone TD.
James Washington will see significant playing time and contribute with a long TD reception.
James Conner will serve as the every down back, but Steven Ridley gets more than 5 snaps. Running game continues to be an afterthought in the Roethlisberger offense.
Steelers will not commit more than 10 penalties.
FitzMagic runs out.
T. J. Watt not asked to cover a receiver down the field and responds with a couple of sacks.
Sean Davis gets a pick.
Two tight end formation is effective; AB benefits with 6 catches and a TD.
Conner runs enough to keep them honest; 67 yards rushing. 4 catches for about 40 yards.
Jordan Berry pins the Bucs deep a couple of times.
Chiefs roll, 37 - 20
Who is the winner?
Mine was first . . . just sayin'.
Let's see if we get this tradition going again.
Cleveland will be a better team than last year, eventually, but not in Week 1.
I would have given Baker Mayfield the starting job from the get go. Tyrod Taylor isn't the answer.
Hue Jackson dithered all week over who was going to start at left tackle. He settled on an UDFA from West Georgia. Either Jackson is a genius, or the Browns O-line is in disarray already. I predict Bud Dupree will actually get his name on the stat sheet.
Not having Le'Veon Bell is disappointing, but this year is slightly different, as Conner has been preparing to start all along. Bell didn't exactly set the world on fire in last year's opener.
Ben is a good quarterback in inclement weather, but 40 mph winds and a downpour will have a negative effect on scoring and offensive production in general.
I'm going with 19-13 Steelers.
I can't believe the roster is set. Only three outside linebackers? Two injured tight ends? Moves must be made.
Didn't see that coming.
Probably couldn't work a trade for either Dobbs or Jones, and after Thursday's game, believed Dobbs wouldn't go unclaimed.
