Defense-adjusted Value Over Average.
Pittsburgh couldn't afford to lose any more AFC games. They're pretty much toast now.
Oh, they certainly won't do it. It isn't "in the book." :)
Next year won't matter. Worilds will almost certainly be gone. As to the money though.....it's already spent. Doesn't really matter...
Yeah, you never blow off playoff shots. Steelers have won a SB as the 6th seed. Giants too. Weird s@#$ happens sometimes.
I can't say I'm confident they'll get to post-season play, but until...
He's looked like a legit starter at the Sam prior to this year.
I hated that Woodley contract the moment they gave it to him, and I hate it even more now. I saw he's already on record saying "Oh,...
fat guys and knee injuries are always some level of risk, regardless of how minor.
That said, he didn't tear any ligaments, so it wouldn't stop me from drafting him if things broke a certain way.
They can't look any further than the game they are playing each week. They basically can't afford to lose, at all, if they want to make the playoffs. MAYBE losing to the Packers wouldn't...
They can't lose any more divisional games if they want to have a prayer, IMO. Probably not even anymore conference games period.....
...which means they'd have to run together a six game winning...
I'd take 6 slow RBs if they all had Graham's vision. :)
Not a bad shot to take at all, really. If he ever gets back to 100% full health he knows how to run. Especially if they intend to keep the...
Tired old trope with the same answer: They can't trade him with his current contract, and wouldn't even if they could.
Youngest at the time he was hired? Yeah, he was. Youngest ever? No. Bunch of guys were hired younger, including The Chin, with Lane Kiffin being the youngest at 31+.
Heh. Can't really take much credit, there. I just watch a bunch of SEC football.
He's a slugger. Little bowling ball that just doesn't go down on first contact and has good vision and just...
Not in that building.
I think someone may have mentioned something about that.
Fully expect a loss. The Steelers just don't play that well on the West Coast, especially in Oakland.
Have to control Pryor's running. If they don't, they're going to be in for a loooong day. ...
I'd expect they were merely kicking the tires.
As for Moeaki vs. Scheffler. A) Scheffler pretty much blows, B) is only an inch or two taller that Moeaki, and C) It probably would have far more...
From the "I'm bored, but just saw this" file: Couple beat types reporting that the Steelers have shown interest in the recently waived Tony Moeaki.
Guess they're trying to corner the market on...
One of the plodders would still likely be on the team if LS-H didn't get hurt, but Felix Jones probably wouldn't.
Per Schefter and the official Steelers' feed from just a few minutes ago.
Have to say....not even a little disappointed. Having both he AND Dwyer on the roster was beyond redundant. Would...
Better than re-injuring his leg, I suppose.
No link, but seeing the local beat guys ans Schefter reporting it on Twitter.
If he could ever stay healthy he may be a legit return guy.
Bonus, indeed. "Saved from themselves" etc.
Pretty sure him getting hurt doesn't eliminate compensation. It'll be a 7th for sure now, though.
Yeah, he has. One of the few on D.
Allen's supposed to still be manning slot CB in the Nickle, so I wonder how much the injury is really limiting him. Think that may be just a convenient excuse.
Seems William Gay is getting the start of Cortez the Killer this week as well.
Given the scorch marks he received last week, I'm not that surprised.
