TRAINING CAMP 2019 MY TAKES:
Things I took away from steelers camp 2019. At Heinz Field. The secondary still looks avg, but is a lot faster, the lb core is super fast and is outstanding with tackling, Bush looks like a speed demon, Barrow can tackle anything. the def line is outstanding, Heyword is possessed, Tuit and Mculures are filling run lanes, Buggs could be great, Edmund's looked to be solid until Vance a.k.a vanimal stiff armed him into next week.
The O. Line is the best I seen in 20+ years, Ben is Ben moving younger guys in position, involved in play calling and drilling passes. The Rb core is outstanding, Conner looks like a pure stud and Snell is a speed / power back, Samuels is a pass catching machine, wr core looks great, Juju is a complete superstar, Switz is looking like a chain mover, Washington can fly, Johnson can catch anything, Vance is a monster killer at T. End.
I'm liking Hodges at backup qb, over Mason and Dobbs, Aydani is a pure pass rusher a.k.a baby Harrison, Hayden, Edmunds and Hilton were looking solid, Nelson is a great cover guy.
The camp is all business like, players are looking like they are out to prove something.
I was totally impressed with the O.line and the depth, o.line is where you win games and this o.line could be the best in the NFL.
a note to all you Steelers fans that want to place blame on Tomlin,
Ben, Colbert or even The Rooney's for the AB and L. Bell problem.
First off AB is under contract for 3 more years, WE NEVER WANTED TO
TRADE HIM, HE wants to be traded, HE wants more money, HE wants a new
contract, this has nothing on earth to do with Tomlin, Ben or Kevin
At this point, I would of traded him to Buffalo for an order of HOT WINGS! lol
Next off, he demanded a trade, we traded him to the Bills, then he said he would not report to them, so the Bills left the trade. He thinks he can pick and choose where we trade him, this dude is more nuts then we all thought.
He claims he will not play with a team that is not in contention, this guy has now created a fan hatred, once this happens there is no turning back.
So lets take a look at this one, If AB can't get traded because he will not sign with his new team, we keep him on the Steelers and if he don't show up, we will place his goofy butt on the NFI list, this is the NON-FOOTBALL INJURY LIST, meaning he sits out or retires the Steelers will not have to pay a penny to him and would also clear his salary from the CAP! WIN WIN!
AB has nothing to do with anything Pittsburgh, we own his contract rights and all the crying in the world will not change this. No we will not just cut AB, why would we, we will trade him or keep him for 3 long years while he pouts on the NFI list. lol
The L. Bell story is a little different, this cat just wants to be paid way over board, the Steelers offered to make him the highest paid back in NFL history and he laughed at the offer, he also sat out the year and left 14.8 million on the table.
Lots of espn talking heads will have you thinking its the Steelers or Ben or Tomlin that is to blame, IT'S NOT ANY OF THAT! These 2 cats are in their own worlds, L. Bell will prolly get about 8 million per year (WAY LESS THEN THE STEELERS OFFERED HIM) and AB will prolly have to take a trade to the Raiders or the JETS and have a 1 year deal then its there problem to re-sign him.
As far as the Steelers Team, it's just that... A TEAM, we been here before and will prolly be here again, it don't matter, we will always be the STEELERS and NO PLAYER IS BIGGER THEN THE FRANCHISE
Go ahead and Let the NFL fall a sleep on us and let their fans act like we are falling apart all the while we are just fine, The O. Line is the best in the NFL, we have a H.O.F QB, a superstar WR in JUJU, a killer T. End in Vance, we have a top 5 Defensive line, we will need to draft 2- cover CBS and a speed ILB like Devin White and this defense is top 3.
True Steelers Fans understand how the cap works and how this teams operates and will never turn there heads or worry about over paying in Free agency. We will continue the way we have been doing it for 100 years. DEVELOP PLAYERS and remove cry babies.
I been a true steeler fan for over 50 years and trust me I seen everything... The AB stuff is mind blowing tho.. lol
I Ride with TOMLIN, BEN, COLBERT, and the entire Steeler FRANCHISE FOR LIFE!
HERE WE GO STEELERS!!!
Week #6 Steelers @ Bengals 28-21 WIN!
The Steelers came into this game winning the last 6 and it looked great for them to get number 7, until the bengals finale drive that ending up with them on top and going crazy.
Ben then did when Ben does and with 1:08 left on the clock, Ben drove them down field for a winning TD to AB. Conner ran hard and is starting to make a statement that he can be our rb. AB was silent until the 4th qt, JUJU had an amazing Catch and was under death threats all game. The defense was solid, but did have problems at CB. All in All, the Steelers did what they had to do. Huge Win
