Broken bones in your hand(s) will make catching a pass from Ben Roethlisberger extremely challenging to say the least. I can't wait to watch camp/preseason play out. I believe there is going to be some eye opening playmaking from guys. SBI

Scunge-- the Steelers are nothing if not predictable as hell.

You mean predictable like taking a long snapper in the sixth round?

Let's put it this way: predictable in terms of almost always drafting day 3 to fill the training camp roster and not really looking for diamonds in the rough. I get the feeling we'll find out that Warren is retiring or has a problem.

OT here... but what's the need to run these punch drunk former players up to make these picks. Half of them can barely string three words together.
We had the guy making the Jackson Jacksonvilles pick.
The guy picking for the New York J-E-T-E Jets.
The New York football world Champions. WTF???
The former Cowboy shouting down the Iggles fans.
And ex Raider Willie Brown mumbling some incomprehensible BS...twice!

It was very entertaining Jobus.

I heard from one of them..........."with the 256th pick in the draft"
Was actually 2nd round and 56th pick.
I also heard..."In Two Hundred and seventeen NFL draft"

On the other hand....Loved Drew Pearson.lol

Yet they have one of the best diamonds in later rounds in the last ten years.

I agree I think the 5th spot (if they decide to keep 5) is down to Coates vs Hunter. I give Coates the advantage for ST's play.

Colbert has basically never signed a veteran free agent that didn't make the 53.

Which makes sense....why sign a guy if you are even remotely gonna cut him ?

So its AB JuJu Bryant Hunter with DHB Rogers Ayers Hamilton Coates all fighting for 1 spot. Wow. Id really like them to decide this is the year to keep 6 at WR


Also means they have made up their mind on keeping these guys............ before the draft, before camp, before competition, pre-season games, etc......
On the other hand, most of those names have contributed to the 53........
Which means they like Hunter.
I think Hunter was certainly MB insurance and/or Coates/DHB replacement

Technically, didn't Steven Johnson not make the 53 last year? Wasn't it only because of injuries, Dupree, etc, that he was brought back? I remember people saying Dirty Red, Tyler Matakevich had no chance of making the roster but he did make the original 53 over free agent signee Steven Johnson.

It may be a technicality, a loop hole but there B2B, I found one free agent who was cut just last year ;)

I've said this before, and I might be wrong. But MB isn't going to walk into camp as #2. I personally think JuJu or Coates will take #2 until MB proves his trust and worth. Ayers and Rogers are AB clones. And then there's Hunter, who is a mystery to me.


It will be a battle though.
I agree COS.
Think Tomlin will make him earn it....especially in camp.
Why throw him right in with the #1's when there is weeks of camp and 4 pre-season games.
On top of a process that he needs to go thru.
Earn team mates trust, coaches trust, WR group and of course Bens trust.

Throwing him in right with the number ones would make it easy for him.
This could needs to continue putting in the hard work that it looks like he has been doing.
Now he needs to do it with his guys.

Go MB
Stay good.
Stay strong.
Last chance for you and you families future.
