IMO if Gilbert or Skipper are not on the 53 then neither will make it through waivers.   I think the team keeps them both by either only keeping 8 OL or 2 QBs or put Layne on the IR and go with 5 CBs.

 

It will be a massive surprise if they do not keep both players - if they keep Matakevich over UGIII I will revolt

Are you guys serious? All you do is b***h and moan about how everything is terrible and the season is lost and our future is compromised. The AFC North sucks this year; our season is far from over. Th

This trade says a lot about their faith in Rudolph. 

Y'all are ridiculous.

Gray was cut. No surprises so far. 

I expect Dobbs to be traded or cut. Steelers rarely keep 3 qbs unless they have a vet backup and a developmental rookie. If they are satisfied that Rudolph could slide in for Ben, I think they just keep 2 and stash Hodges.

I believe last time I looked Mark Barron was listed as the starter over Devin Bush. How do we think this plays out/has something changed since I last looked?

I think barron, Williams and bush will play similar snaps. They will rotate and play different positions in sub packages

Call me crazy but I think the market for regressing, inaccurate, QB's who panic in the pocket is zilch.

In a league where Josh McCown is so valuable that the a team will agree to let him fly back to help coach a high school team on Friday nights, I'm not sure anyone's market is zilch.

Snell. :bag:

Gotcha. You guys really don't like Snell at all, huh? I haven't had the privilege of watching him...

Somebody in the cut thread mentioned Perine and Houston, though, so coming in here to be the third guy might not be as appealing as going to Houston and fighting for the first shot.

The Pittsburgh Steelers cleared one roster spot Saturday afternoon by trading offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an exchange of 2021 draft picks.

The Steelers will receive Tampa Bay’s sixth-round selection in the 2021 draft. Tampa Bay will get the Steelers’ seventh-round pick in 2021.

Steelers fans...who do you think ends up being the 2nd WR to own in this offenses?

I'm in the 13th round of a slow draft and Moncrief is still available. Washington was taken already. I'll be grabbing Moncrief with nothing to lose at this point. I think it's Moncrief now but who knows if/when Washington comes on.

I was that guy that took Washington before Moncrief even though I've always actually always liked Moncrief's game.

I can see Moncrief remaining the 2 all season.  That doesn’t mean they won’t have similar numbers at year’s end.  I think Washington will have more big plays and be more inconsistent though.

Yeah, Moncrief always struck me as a really good receiver. He's still young, too, so it's not like he's washed. He's played with either Luck or in schemes that weren't designed for success at all. There's really been no middle ground. I think he's a soft tissue issue guy, though. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if he was the 2 all season, either.

I'm not judging. Who knows who plays better. Washington was gone so I just grabbed Moncrief.

Oh yeah, I didn't think you were judging. There are and were valid reasons to pick Washington, it just now seems like he'll be part of three-wide sets rather than two, which means less snaps and targets generally. So a bit of a letdown.

Johnny Horton was added to the practice squad.   I expect he will be moved to the 53 after a player is placed on IR.

Layne?  He needs work ....

This is a fast and hungry roster with a nice balance of youth and experience. Here we go!!

as a Pats fan, wondering how the fans of the other team are feeling going into this game.

Better to get the Patriots early in the season? SB hangover perhaps?

We expecting a gunslinger shootout from Ben / Brady?

What's it gonna take to get the W?

Glad AB is no longer a Steeler, knock on wood if you're with me. 

They need to send out a memo across the entire organization that there is a gag order in place for saying any combination of AB, Antonio, Brown, or Mr. Big Chest.

What record do you guys think we get this season? I'm thinking 11-5 as a half-optimistic line.

  1. Pats - 0-1
  2. Seahawks - 1-1
  3. 49ers - 2-1
  4. Bengals - 3-1
  5. Ravens - 4-1
  6. Chargers - 4-2
  7. Dolphins - 5-2
  8. Colts - 6-2
  9. Rams - 6-3
  10. Browns - 6-4
  11. Bengals - 7-4
  12. Browns - 8-4
  13. Cards - 9-4
  14. Bills - 10-4
  15. Jets - 11-4
  16. Ravens - 11-5

I think we split with the Ravens and Browns, we lose to two of Pats/Chargers/Rams and lose to 1 bad team. I just chose us losing to all 3 solid teams because I couldn't pick a bad team for us to lose to. 

This team looks very strong. If the kicking game bounces back to being automatic, I like your assessment of 11+ leaning toward the +.  Kicking remains in the Ohio River, then mediocrity reigns supreme.

for the last month or two almost all Steelers fans have said that.  Now that he is released, we better get on our hands and knees that the Patriots don't do what most of us think will happen.  Yes I know he can't play this week but thinking long term

Down 20-0 with zero momentum in the game at all.  Opening drive to start 2nd half and the Steelers somehow actually gain some momentum. 4th and goal from the 1 against the Super Bowl champs and a great defense.  Tomlin elects to kick the FG.  There you have it folks.  But lets give him another shot because of winning percentage and all!
