No details. Not sure how I feel about it , have to see how much cap space it freed up.
agree on this. IF Ben stays healthy all season we should end up in the playoffs. not saying we def. win the division but our defense should be good enough to handle Burrow, Lamar, and Baker. not gonna go 6-0 in the div. but i also don't see us finishing last in the div. either.I can see either happening next season. They will have enough talent to be a playoff team. Probably will pick up a friendly priced FA or two. Likely OL and secondary. Steelers will lose 3-4 to free agency. With luck a couple of upcoming draft picks will step up. 10-6 is possible.
I could also with some injuries and bad luck see 7-9 or even 6-10 as a possibility. I’ll state again this division doesn’t scare me the talent deferential between the top 3 teams is minimal. The Bengals still have to catch up.
I'm not "burning it all down", I'm cutting ties with players who aren't part of the future (old, expensive, etc.) and rebooting a staff that should have been years ago.the nonsense is that just because we finished 1-5 you want to burn it all down. that's simply ludicrous. all you can do in this league is whatever you have to to make the playoffs and then hope to play well when you get there. Steelers didn't play well in the playoffs. it happens. but one bad game doesn't mean you just get rid of everything and start over. your infatuation with Tomlin being a terrible coach is so far worn out it wouldn't even get sold at a Thrift Store.
Ben showed he has enough left to play well for not just next season (although i think that will be it) but even more and his salary now has ZERO to do with whether or not the Steelers will be able to build a competitive roster. they can still do that. some guys will leave in FA. some will come back. that happens EVERY season. they will draft enough talent and sign some guys to fill some holes, like they always do and they will still be competitive. this is still a playoff team.
now that's fine if you want to keep being the fan that simply roots for a team's demise and hopes that the coaches/GM's fail so we can move on to the next up and coming coach/GM who probably isn't even out there at this point in time.
this is also why i love to come on here (at times). it's so great to find fans who sit behind a keyboard and know more about what's going on with the team, what needs fixed on the team, what coaches/players need to be let go, who they need to draft/sign, what kind of offense/defense they should run, etc.
i'm not sure why the Rooneys don't just come on this Yappi forum to get all their answers. that's all they would need. save so much money on scouts, admin, etc. just come to Yappi and we have ALL the answers. no need to go to the combine. don't watch any college film. all your evaluations, X's and O's, player personnel decisions - they're all HERE.
probably would have had 4-5 Super Bowls the last 6 years if the Rooney's did that.
can't believe they haven't taken advantage of this FREE site.
i'll let them know it's here. hopefully they jump on it soon to start making the necessary changes.
